Seemingly confirming the recent retailer leaks, the ESRB has rated Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Zombies Chronicles for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Since the rating description is the exact same as Black Ops 3, the ESRB also appears to confirm that there will be a retail release featuring both the base game and Zombies Chronicles content.

According to those retailer leaks, Zombies Chronicles will include eight remastered Zombies maps from previous Treyarch games, and all will include the Gobblegum function.

When Activision and Treyarch officially announce Zombies Chronicles, we’ll let you know.

The ESRB also rated Injustice 2 recently, and you can see why it received a Teen rating below:

This is a fighting game in which players engage in one-on-one battles with popular heroes and villains from the DC Comics universe. Players punch, kick, and use a variety of weapons (e.g., knives, swords, machine guns, laser blasters) to drain opponents’ health meters in melee-style combat. Matches are highlighted by impact sounds, splashes of blood, and colorful light effects as fighters are hurled across the screen or to the ground. As players engage in fantasy combat, they can trigger super attacks and transitional attacks that propel opponents from different levels of fighting arenas. Some super attacks depict blood-splatter effects as characters are injured by creatures and/or impaled with swords. Cutscenes depict additional instances of violence and blood: a character impaled with a sword; a prisoner lying in a small pool of blood; a character stabbed with a trident; a villain’s throat slashed off-screen.

The game’s dialogue contains brief sexual references (e.g., “They’re thieves. Rapists. Murderers.”), and some female characters wear revealing outfits (e.g., deep cleavage, tight-fitting clothing) and/or perform suggestive poses. One fight setting takes place in a bar with several alcohol references: signs that read “Beer”‘; drunk patrons in the background; kegs of beer that can be thrown at opponents. The word “sh*t” is heard in dialogue.

Injustice 2 releases in just over two weeks for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
