In spite of promo material labeling it an 18 game.
Most, if not all, Call of Duty games have been rated 18 by PEGI, the European age-rating board for video games. Ghosts, however, breaks the tradition after 2008′s Call of Duty: World at War, and gets rated 16.
What does this mean? It might mean that Activision/Infinity Ward opted not to include any shocking, “No Russian”-style missions this time around, thus getting a more youngster-friendly rating, and expanding their audience. Is this the case, and even more important, is this good? We’ll see on November 5.
Thank you for the reveal, Eurogamer!
