The Devil May Cry 5 ESRB rating has been released, and it is about what people should expect from the series. It has been rated "Mature," for audiences over 17 years old, due to things like blood, partial nudity, strong language, and violence. Its rating also gives us an example of the ESRB warning people about DLC and microtransactions, as it alerts people to in-game purchases on all platforms.
Here is the official Devil May Cry 5 rating summary. No need to worry about spoilers before reading. It just points out that people will be playing as Dante, Nero, and V, there will be all sorts of demon attacks, and our heroes will be using fast and flashy attacks to defeat them.
This is an action game in which players follow the story of three heroes (Dante, Nero, V) in their quest to save the world from demons. From a third-person perspective, players use swords, guns, and special attacks (e.g., a prosthetic hand with electric bursts) to kill hordes of demons in frenetic combat. Battles are highlighted by gunfire, screams of pain, and slow-motion finishing moves/highlights. One cutscene depicts civilians screaming in pain while being impaled by demon tentacles. Blood appears frequently during combat and stains several environments. Some female characters are depicted partially nude, with their breasts and buttocks minimally covered by blood, light, or clothing. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
Devil May Cry 5 will release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide on March 8, 2019. As a reminder, its soundtrack will be out on March 20, 2019.
