Heavy Rain Rated In The UK

January 8, 2010 Written by Sebastian Moss

Murder mystery Heavy Rain is set to be one of the hottest upcoming games of the year, bringing a whole new level of interactive gaming to the PlayStation 3. CEO of Quantic Dream and the renowned writer and director of Heavy Rain, David Cage, has often pushed the games level of maturity and how it appeals to an adult audience, causing many to believe that the game would get an 18 rating.

Although the game features full male and female nudity, including steamy shower scenes, the British Board of Film Classification has rated Heavy Rain as a 15 title, intended for that age group and above. Additionally, the BBFC has confirmed that nothing will be cut from the game. The rating was given due to the game’s “strong language, violence and sex.”

Heavy Rain is set to release in February 2010.
