Cyberpunk 2077 won’t be out until September of this year, but the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) has released a few details about what we can expect from the game while we wait.
The ESRB also puts together a summary explaining each rating. This summary often includes details about the game, some of its missions, or the various activities and shenanigans that players can find as they play. There’s shooting, and blood, and guns, which all checks out. But then things get more interesting.
The ESRB describes a mission where you “assist a character by hammering nails through his hands and feet,” and also mentions that the game includes drugs, both real and fictional, and depictions of their use.
Then there’s the sexual content. “The game contains nudity and sexual material,” the ESRB states. “Players can select a gender and customize their character; customization can include depictions of breasts, buttocks, and genitalia, as well as various sizes and combinations of genitals.”
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released for Google Stadia, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on Sept. 17, with an Xbox One X version coming at a later date.
The PlayStation 4 Pro is 4K-ready, and several of the PS4’s best games are “enhanced” to take advantage of the more powerful console’s improved visuals and frame rates.
