(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – The Elder Scrolls Online has just received its ESRB rating, and it wasn’t what Bethesda was expecting.
According to Bethesda’s official Twitter account, the rating board gave the game an M rating, far from the T rating they were aiming for.
“The ESRB advised us that it has given The Elder Scrolls Online a Mature rating. While we may disagree with the ESRB’s determination, we do not plan to challenge that rating, and we are unwilling to change the game’s content to achieve a different rating. The game we have created is the one we want our fans to be able to play.”
It’s uncertain how this will affect the success of the game, but it certainly will prevent minors from buying the game in stores.
The Elder Scrolls Online will be available for Mac and PC on April 4th, and June 2014 for PS4 and Xbox One consoles.
