When it comes to SWTOR, we’re much like the rest of you, waiting for any news or spoilers to help us out when it comes to learning more about the game. The latest teaser comes from a somewhat unlikely source- the ESRB itself.

ESRB says, “Some sequences depict brief instances of blood and gore. To complete one quest, players must dip a skull in a pool of blood: in another mission, players deliver a severed head to a specific location and place it on a pike.”

So what about sexual content? The ESRB says this:

“Players can freely explore many areas in the game, including clubs that depict scantily clad female dancers with exposed cleavage; some sequences include dialogue with sexual innuendo (e.g., “An hour. I think I'm insulted. We'll need the whole night,” “I'll be sure to make conjugal visits,” and “Come, dear, let's forgo the nuptials and proceed to the honeymoon.”).”

And then remember that topic of profanity in the game we discussed just recently? The ESRB also says “The words “damn” and “hell” can be heard in dialogue throughout the game.”

So there we have some revealing info about the game as a whole but none of it really surprising to those who have been following the game and awaiting its release. In addition to the ESRB warnings, we also have to remember that online, interactive content cannot be rated as you cannot predict what other players of the game might say or do.

SWTOR will be rated T for Teen (as of now anyway) but it does seem that it is being marketed to an older audience.
