Serious Sam Collection for PS4 and Xbox One Rated by ESRB
Some hardcore fans might remember the 2013 release that was the Serious Sam Collection, and it now turns out that the collection of classic shooters is being re-released on the Xbox One and PS4. The Entertainment Software Ratings Board [ESRB] has now released a rating for version of this collection, itself being a reworked port of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
The Serious Sam Collection is a compilation game released in July 12, 2013 in UK and July 16, 2013. This version was originally released The following titles are included in this bundle, and are likely to be present in this new version on the current gen consoles: Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter, Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter, Serious Sam 3: BFE along with The Jewel of the Nile DLC and Serious Sam Double D XXL.
The actual rating pegs the games at M for Mature-rated software, meaning a fair amount of violence and gore will likely be in the games. This fact is sure to delight fans of the original games. There’s lots of gore, explosions and bloodshed, as one would expect based on the precedent set by the franchise.
Here’s the basic rundown of the rating in case you were wondering what is actually considered “Mature”.
This is a collection of first-person shooters in which players battle aliens and monsters in frenetic combat. Players use pistols, machine guns, shotguns, and sledgehammers to kill numerous creatures. Large blood-splatter effects occur during combat. Enemies are sometimes shown blowing themselves up into bursts of limbs and blood. Players are also able to rip the eyes out of creatures’ heads and/or rip the hearts out of soldier-like aliens. During the course of the game, harpy-like enemies are depicted topless (though usually from a distance). One character briefly references drugs in the dialogue (e.g., “I’m supposed to be doin’ blow off a stripper’s a*s right now.”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in dialogue.
No other news has been revealed as part of this port, but we can probably expect something of an announcement soon.
