Destiny 2: Forsaken Gets ESRB Rating

Whether you’ve never played Destiny, got tired of the grind, or you’ve always remembered what it means to be a Guardian, there has never been a better time to be a part of Destiny 2. The recently announced DLC Forsaken is set to be an absolute – and literal – game changer compared to the previously released content. Today, we learned that the Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for Destiny 2: Forsaken and some its findings may surprise you.

The Destiny expansion ended up getting a T (for Teen) rating. It got dinged for having blood and violence, as well as some filthy language.


You can check out the ESRB description for Forsaken below:

“This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a group (Guardians) defending humanity against an alien force. Players travel across futuristic landscapes and planets to battle a horde of alien creatures. Players use pistols, machine guns, rocket launchers, and various elemental weapons (e.g., flame sword, lightning staff) to kill enemies. Battles are frenetic and are accompanied by realistic gunfire and large explosions. Cutscenes sometimes depict dramatic spaceship battles and characters getting shot, electrocuted, and strangled. Splashes of red blood occasionally appear on the screen when players are injured, and some creatures emit splashes of black liquid when killed. The word “a*shole” is heard in the dialogue.”

Destiny 2 Gambit

Destiny 2: Forsaken is the latest DLC coming to the genre-defining sci-fi shooter. Players will work alongside Cayde-6 in an attempt to stop a brutal prison break in the Rift where an all-new race of enemies has been held captive at the hands of our favorite hunter. The game will offer a complete overhaul to the loadout system, brand new Super attacks for every class, hundreds of weapons, and so much more. As seen above, Forsaken also features a new 4 v 4 multiplayer mode called Gambit, in which two teams work to drop powerful enemies into the other teams arena, with one player from each team able to invade the opposing side and make even more mayhem.
