Even though we are a couple of years away from playing Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Wolverine game, at least we know the experience is going to cater to adults. Unlike the upcoming Venom: Let There Be Carnage movie that has been rated 13, the Marvel’s Wolverine video game isn’t going to tone down the violence to suit a younger audience.
According to the creative director at Insomniac Games Brian Horton, Marvel’s Wolverine is a full-length mature game. While Brian didn’t go into detail regarding the game’s violent themes, the mention of “mature” is enough to confirm there might actually be blood this time around.
Insomniac Games isn’t a studio known for its violent and gory video games. Other than the Resistance series, which has been MIA for years now, most of its roster of video games include light-hearted, family-friendly violence. Ratchet and Clank doesn’t include much action other than cartoon violence. As for Marvel’s Spider-Man series, it is as violence-free as possible. Spider-Man doesn’t even “kill” his enemies. He simply “knocks them out”.
If what Brian Horton is saying is true then the upcoming Marvel’s Wolverine game might include themes such as death, dismemberment, blood and gore. You know, as a Wolverine game should be. Of course, we won’t know for sure what level of “mature tone” the game is for a while now but we can only hope the game has been made for adults.
Marvel’s Wolverine is also going to be a full-length experience. So not a short adventure like Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales. Rather, the game is longer in size and scale.
Full size, mature tone
