Players can get high in GTAV, says ESRB
American ratings group listing shows players will experience nudity-free sexual encounters, drunk driving, and smoking pot.
Grand Theft Auto V's listing on the Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed some of the various misdemeanors players will experience in the game, including nudity-free sexual encounters with a prostitute, drunk driving, and smoking pot.
"Players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill various enemies (e.g., rival gang members); players also have the ability to shoot non-adversary civilians, though this may negatively affect players' progress as a penalty system triggers a broad police search. Blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and the game contains rare depictions of dismemberment."
"In one sequence, players are directed to use various instruments and means to extract information from a character; the sequence is intense and prolonged, and it involves some player interaction (i.e., responding to on-screen prompts).
"The game includes depictions of sexual material/activity: implied fellatio and masturbation; various sex acts that the player's character procures from a prostitute--while no nudity is depicted in these sequences, various sexual moaning sounds can be heard. Nudity is present, however, primarily in two settings: a topless lap dance in a strip club and a location that includes male cult members with exposed genitalia in a non-sexual context."
"Within the game, TV programs and radio ads contain instances of mature humor: myriad sex jokes; depictions of raw sewage and feces on a worker's body; a brief instance of necrophilia (no nudity is depicted)."
"Some sequences within the larger game allow players to use narcotics (e.g., smoking from a bong, lighting a marijuana joint); cocaine use is also depicted."
Finally, "players' character can, at various times, consume alcohol and drive while under the influence" and "the words 'f**k,' 'c*nt,' and 'n**ger' can be heard in the dialogue."
Grand Theft Auto V will launch for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17. Grand Theft Auto Online will follow on October 1.
