Star Wars Jedi: Survivor — the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC-bound sequel to 2019 Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order — has been reviewed by the ESRB prior to release. For those who don’t know, the ESRB stands for Entertainment Software Rating Board, and they are the self-regulatory organization for the video game industry that specifically rates games for release in the United States. And it recently reviewed Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, giving the game a “T” for “Teen,” which is the same rating as its predecessor.
As in the first game, there is explicit language. For example, the review reveals that the word “bastard” appears in the game, just like in the first game. However, unlike the first game, the word “ass” appears in the game.
“This is an action-adventure game where players take on the role of an outlaw Jedi on the run from the galactic empire,” the review summary reads. From a third-person perspective, players explore alien planets as they use their Jedi powers to traverse environments and defeat enemies in melee-style combat. Players use lightsabers to slice and tear apart aliens, droids, and humanoid foes. fights are fast-paced, with screams of agony, impact noises, and large explosions. Some sequences show characters being impaled through the chest. The words ‘a*s’ and ‘bastard’ can be heard in the game.”
We don’t know what the context is for these parts of the game, but we expect both words to come out of someone’s mouth during the events of the game, which will be released worldwide on March 17 via the aforementioned platforms.
