F.E.A.R. Online has nudity, gets Mature 17+ rating from ESRB
The newly launched F.E.A.R. Online official website reveals nudity as one reason why the game earned an M rating.
The official website's homepage proudly shows off its Mature 17+ or M rating from the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB).
The ESRB said the fps mmo has been deemed generally suitable for ages 17 and up because of its "intense violence, blood and gore, nudity and strong language."
If anything, the rating should appease stalwart F.E.A.R. Online fans. This means that the franchise's trademark dark, gory and inappropriate-for-kids themes have not been toned down to court a larger MMO fan base. It should be noted that F.E.A.R. Online shares the same M rating with previous F.E.A.R. games.
Aside from the ratings confirmation, the newly opened website also contains fresh content and teasers for fans to gobble up.
This includes a short story summary, where we learn that the horror-themed shooter MMO will focus on the "all-out warfare" that has erupted between F.E.A.R. soldiers and ATC security personnel. Players will be asked to choose a side and participate in competitive team combat scenarios. Developers also said that "familiar faces from past games in the series such as protagonists Point Man and Michael Beckett" may make cameos or even figure in the story plot.
The new website also provides cursory overviews of the maps, modes, controls and other features for the game.
