The Order: 1886 ESRB Rating Detailed, Find Out How to Get a Free PS4 Theme

February 3, 2015Written by Jason Dunning


To tell everyone exactly why The Order: 1886 is rated Mature, the ESRB published their full report on the game today, revealing that it has blood and gore, intense violence, nudity, sexual content, and strong language.

In the ratings summary, the ESRB describes some of that intense violence, while also highlighting a brothel you can visit:

This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of a soldier in the Victorian era London. As players progress through the storyline to unfold a mystery, they use pistols, rifles, grenades, and fantastical weapons (e.g., electric arc gun) to kill human enemies and Lycan (i.e., werewolf creatures). Players can also employ stealth attacks (e.g., slitting throats) to dispatch enemies. Firefights are accompanied by realistic gunfire, explosions, and splashes of red blood. Some explosives cause dismemberment; mutilated bodies, with exposed viscera, are also depicted. Cutscenes also depict intense acts of violence: a character stabbed repeatedly in the chest and throat; a character shot in the head at close range; a man chained to a tub and repeatedly dunked and punched by guards. During the course of the game, players can visit a brothel that depicts prostitutes with exposed breasts. One brothel sequence depicts a topless woman gyrating on top of a man—the sex act is partially obscured. There is also a fleeting depiction of male genitalia in the game. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” can be heard in the dialogue.

If you head over to the official The Order website on, you’ll be able to explore a pinboard and learn more about The Order: 1886. Once you visit all the sections, you’ll then be given a code that unlocks an exclusive PS4 theme beginning on February 17 (might be North America only).
