Iron Galaxy’s Extinction is set to release on April 10, 2018, and the action game has players attempting to save humanity from giant enemies. The game’s ESRB rating just went live, and it certainly earns its M-rating. According to the ESRB, players will cut off limbs of ogres and eventually defeat them via decapitation. Some particularly violent scenes include seeing “ogres smashing villagers with clubs, a bloodied man impaled by a large piece of wood, [and] a character hitting an ogre in the head with a pickaxe.”

Check out the full Extinction ESRB rating below:

This is an action role-playing game in which players control a warrior (Aviil) as he attempts to save humanity from extinction by killing giant ogres and their minions. From a third-person perspective, players use swords to attack and kill ogres in melee-style combat; large blood-splatter effects occur when enemies are hit. Players must also climb and kill giant ogres by cutting off their limbs and eventually decapitating them. Dismemberment and decapitation are accompanied by large sprays of blood. Some animated cutscenes also depict violence: ogres smashing villagers with clubs; a bloodied man impaled by a large piece of wood; a character hitting an ogre in the head with a pickaxe.

When Extinction launches April 10, 2018 there’ll be several different preorder bonuses. Here’s how they breakdown:
