The Last of Us Part 2 Gets Unsurprising M ESRB Rating

The Last of Us 2 has received an “M” for Mature rating from the ESRB. This isn’t surprising but good to know in case you’re wondering if the sequel to another rated M game might somehow be suitable for your children. On the official The Last of Us Part 2 website showcases an official M ESRB rating and includes the following content descriptors: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Nudity, Sexual Content, Strong Language, and Use of Drugs. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="legacyId=20029358&captions=true"] Anyone who’s played the first Last of Us will find many of these descriptors familiar. Especially since The Last of Us explores a particularly nihilistic version of the zombie-filled post-apocalypse. Though the first Last of Us didn’t include descriptors for nudity, sexual content, or drug use. The Last of Us 2 takes place five years after the events of the first game. Ellie and Joel are older and appear to be living in a civilized enclave of people where they’re safe to pursue normal human activities. But the Clicker menace is still happening and there are rogue bandits and other hostile forces outside of this community. The rest of the story details are still under wraps, though the most recent trailer seems to show Ellie setting off on a revenge journey. [ignvideo url=""] The Last of Us 2 was delayed to May 29, 2020, but that’s just a few months away.
