Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Will Have “Crude Language,” Says IMDA Rating
The sequel to Fallen Order will also tone up the violence according to a rating from the Singapore IMDA
Only a few franchises in the entertainment circle are successful in all forms of media. Star Wars is one such behemoth that has taken over everything from movies to books and continues to dominate. Gaming is no exception to its influence and Probably the best example of that is 2019’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
The game was a huge success both commercially and critically with the fans loving the open-world approach. Since then, a sequel has been in the works and with the release a short time away, the hype is through the roof. Now, a new rating has revealed that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, will feature some rough language and limb cutting.
- Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will feature crude language in the form of words like “*******” and “Hell”
- It will have moderate violence like the previous game, with limb cutting now present.
- The game is playable for ages 16 and above according to the Singapore IMDA.
Infocomm Media Development Authority, shortly known as IMDA, has rated the upcoming game in Singapore. The media agency has given Star Wars Jedi: Survivor an Advisory 16 (ADV16) rating, which is fair. But, the extended classification information present in this rating gives us some interesting info.
First up, the rating means that the game is suitable for ages 16 and above in the region of Asia. The release year of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is also 2023 in the rating, which is a nice corroboration from the rating agency. Everything in the preliminary info lines up with what we already know.
An analysis of the upcoming sequel from the IMDA provides some insights that pique our interest. Star Wars Jedi Survivor will feature “crude language” according to a sentence from the extended classification. The words included in this are “damn“, “hell“, and “*******“, which reflect the 16+ rating.
Even though these words are pretty standard from a gamer’s point of view, it is similar to the previous game. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order also had low-tier cuss words like the ones mentioned above. The word ******* was also in use only once in the game, meaning the sequel is staying true to its predecessor.
Another interesting tidbit in the analytical info was the violence in the game. The IMDA says that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will have moderate violence, but it does include some strong scenes. Characters can have their limbs cut off or get impaled depicting graphical violence.
However, this is done without any bloodshed and we don’t see any of the red stuff on screen. This makes Star Wars Jedi: Survivor both similar to Fallen Order, and a little bit more violent. In the previous game, the strongest scene was a character’s hand being cut off, while this time around the game has upgraded to limbs.
So, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has taken a small step up in violence, while keeping the PG elements of the last game. According to the IMDA, it follows the ADV16 guidance of “realistic but not excessively graphic violence with no depiction of blood.” In addition to all of this, the rating also has a summary of the upcoming game:
“Star Wars Jedi: Survivor” is a sci-fi adventure game which revolves around Cal Kestis, one of the last remaining Jedi in the galaxy. Accompanied by his droid partner, BD-1, Cal must acquire skills, enlist allies, and deepen his connection with the Force to survive the Empire’s pursuit of destroying the Jedi.”
This synopsis resembles that of the Fallen order and the mechanics will mostly be the same. According to the rating, players will solve puzzles, gain abilities, and explore environments. and take part in melee combat. Besides the addition of the new move sets, the way Star Wars Jedi: Survivor progresses resembles its predecessor.
Parents also don’t have to worry too much as there are no explicit scenes of bloodletting and no profanity either. So, you should get your lightsaber ready as Star Wars Jedi Survivor drops on March 17, 2023, on PC, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. Hopefully, the game delivers on its promising premise.
