2K Games may have delayed the release date of WWE 2K15, but new information about the game’s contents have been revealed. According to a product description released by the ESRB from Sept. 23, the upcoming title will keep all the attitude and sex appeal you would expect. The ESRB have rated WWE 2K15 ‘T for Teen’ and lists reasons such as exaggerated breasts, outfits which reveal large amounts cleavage, and violence for the rating. The full description cites the following reasons behind the ‘T’ rating: Alcohol Reference, Blood, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Tobacco and Violence.
The majority of sexual content will stem from the Divas – female wrestlers – who are depicted with exaggerated-size breasts, or in skimpy outfits that may flaunt their cleavage. Furthermore, some of the Divas can perform “provocative” taunting moves to the opposing player. Examples of such gestures are pelvic thrusting and shaking of the buttocks in an opponent’s face. Blood will also be depicted at times when a wrestler is struck with an object, namely after being struck with a chair, table, or a sledgehammer.
If you didn’t know much about WWE 2K15, the ESRB rating description also gives a nice summary of the game. Players can select real wrestlers from the WWE roster, compete in matches, and progress through multiple storylines. You can find the full rating description below:
This is a wrestling simulation game in which players can select real-world competitors from the WWE roster, compete in matches, and progress through multiple storylines. Players can perform a variety of wrestling moves (e.g., holds, grapples, throws) as well as punch and kick opponents.
