The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has given Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the upcoming action-adventure game from Respawn Entertainment and EA Games, a Teen rating. Accompanying the official rating was a description of what players can expect in terms of violence and mild language.
The ESRB rated Survivor‘s predecessor, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, with a T for Teen rating too so the sequel’s rating shouldn’t come as a surprise. However, players can expect the usual levels of violence associated with most Star Wars games, including intense battles, using lightsabers and the force to wreak havoc and some sequences of characters apparently getting impaled through the chest.
The full description for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor‘s Teen rating provided by the ESRB reads:
This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of an outlaw Jedi on the run from the galactic Empire. From a third-person perspective, players explore alien planets while using their Jedi powers to traverse environments and battle enemies in melee-style combat. Players use lightsabers to slash and break apart alien creatures, droids, and humanoid enemies. Combat is fast paced, with cries of pain, impact sounds, and large explosions. Some sequences depict characters getting impaled through the chest. The words “a*s” and “bastard” are heard in the game.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor continues the story established in Fallen Order, following the adventures of protagonist and Jedi Cal Kestis as he outruns the Empire across the galaxy following Order 66. Like the first game, the sequel will also be a third-person action-adventure game featuring new force abilities, locations, enemies and more.
There are currently a number of Star Wars games in development at other studios. Notably, Ubisoft Massive is reportedly working on an open universe Star Wars game that features similar space traversal to No Man’s Sky. Another project (which might be stuck with major development problems) is Star Wars Eclipse, a new title from Detroit: Become Human developer Quantic Dream.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor releases on 17 March 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
