Fans of the WWE are probably not too surprised to learn that WWE 2K18 received an upper level rating from the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB). The ESRB have released a summary for their reasoning of giving WWE 2K18 a T for Teen rating.
This is a wrestling simulation game in which players select real-world competitors from the WWE roster, compete in matches, and progress through multiple storylines. Players can perform a variety of wrestling moves (e.g., throws, holds, grapples) as well as punch and kick opponents. Some matches allow players to use chairs, sledgehammers, and baseball bats to strike opponents. Blood sometimes appears on wrestlers’ bodies/faces after being struck repeatedly by objects.
Some female wrestlers wear revealing outfits that expose deep cleavage; wrestlers may also make provocative gestures (e.g., crotch chop) during matches. The dialogue contains references to beer, wine, champagne, and being drunk (e.g., “So please crack open a beer and let’s celebrate!”; “You still drunk from last night and wander your way into the wrong arena?”). The words “as,” “btch,” and bastard can also be heard.
The rating is not all that surprising as most of the WWE wrestling games have been rated Teen, or the equivalent throughout the history rated games.
