ESRB Reveals Currently Unannounced PS3 Exclusive?
The ESRB needs time to properly rate any given production, which is why they often have access to a new game long before it ever hits the hype train. But it isn't often we catch one that we've never even heard of...
As located by PlayStation LifeStyle, the ESRB has issued their description for a game called Anarchy: Rush Hour, which includes "realistic-collision physics-intense crashes and loud explosions." The game earned a "T"-Teen rating for Drug Reference, Mild Language, Mild Violence and Suggestive Themes, which indicates that despite the intensity of the action, it's more cartoon-y than graphic. But perhaps the most interesting part is that as of now, this game is only listed for the PS3, which obviously hints at exclusivity. Of course, we don't know if it's set for a standard Blu-Ray release or if it's a downloadable title for the PSN; either way, we certainly want to learn more about it. Here's the full description from the ESRB:
"This is a racing game in which players drive sports cars through the streets of Moscow. Massive traffic accidents are common in this game as players can damage and destroy opponents’ cars at will. In the demolition-style events (e.g., 'Deathmatch'), players can slam into other drivers at high speeds, resulting in realistic-collision physics—intense crashes, loud explosions. An underlying storyline is presented in comic-book-style panels. These images sometimes include brief instances of violence: a woman is kidnapped by two men and thrown into a vehicle; a woman holds a knife to a man’s throat; a car explodes with a character inside. The panels also depict a handful of suggestive images: a woman’s nipples protrude through her shirt as she poses suggestively on the hood of a car; a woman in tight hot pants examines a car’s engine—her buttocks is prominently featured. The dialogue contains the expletives 'bastard' and 'damn,' as well as a minor drug reference (e.g., 'I saw the underworld with its violence, blood, and drugs')."
The developer is Gaijin Entertainment, which was responsible for the very solid IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey and that could be a good sign. For now, we can only speculate as to what Anarchy: Rush Hour actually is, but if it's a PS3 exclusive, it's likely to turn some heads.
