"Marvel's Iron Man VR" Gets A Teen Rating For A Swear Word

Of all the things you would think might get Marvel's Iron Man VR a Teen rating, a simple swear word might not be the first thing that comes to mind. But according to the ESRB, that's exactly what pushed the game from having a regular 'ol E-rating to a T. The rating board released a rating summary for the game this week, and aside from hearing people scream in terror (because you're a superhero saving people), the big thing that got the game a bump up to Teen was the fact that someone says the word "ass". Here's the summary for you.

"Marvel's Iron Man VR" Releases In Early 2020 With An Iconic Villain

This is a VR action-adventure game in which players assume the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man as he battles a villain intent on destroying his company. From a first-person perspective, players interact with different characters and engage in combat in the Iron Man suit. Players use lasers, missiles, and repulsor rays to destroy waves of enemy drones and tanks. Battles are accompanied by large explosions and realistic gunfire effects. In one sequence, civilians can be heard screaming inside elevators, as players attempt to help them escape detonations. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: a character pointing a pistol towards the screen; a bound Tony getting his arc reactor ripped out of his chest. The word "a*s" is heard in the game.

Feel free to post your generic Simpsons meme and scream "Oh, won't somebody think of the children?!" Marvel's Iron Man VR will be released on May 15th, 2020 exclusively on PSVR. Provided it isn't pushed back again.
