Cyberpunk 2077 may be one of, if not the most anticipated game of this year, and it finally got an official rating from Brazil, detailing some explicit adult content featured within the game. Now CD Projekt Red are no strangers to adult content, looking back at their history of mature themes and content in games like The Witcher 3 just goes to show that this is not your average family-friendly LEGO game, and Cyberpunk 2077 doesn’t seem to hold anything back…

So what kind of explicit material can we expect from CP2077? Well, first of all the game is obviously rated as an 18+ (big surprise there). Secondly, the following list is translated from Brazilian, so it can sometimes be a bit awkward sounding in English. I would take the liberty of paraphrasing them into something more akin to what we would see in western ratings like PEGI and ESRB, but where’s the fun in that?

Now onto the fun stuff, Cyberpunk 2077 will feature several different types of adult content including the classics like violence, sexual content, drug use etc. But CDPR looks to have included a lot more compared to their previous titles...

So, the kind of explicit content we can expect to see in Cyberpunk 2077 includes: Weapon Without Violence, Moderate or Hinted use of Illicit Drugs, Weapon With Violence, Criminal Act Without Violence, Description of Consume of Illicit Drugs, Derogatory Language, Verbal Aggression, Violent Acts, Sexual Pleasurement, Consumption of Illicit Drugs, Violence Description, Exposure to Danger, Exposure to Death Corpse, Body Injury, Foul Language, Sexual Language, Blood, Description of Illicit Drugs Consumption or Trafficking, Sexualization, Sexual Exploitation, Intentional Death, Nudity, Prostitution, Sexual Relationship, Consumption of Illicit Drugs, Mutilation, Intense Sexual Relationship, Suicide, and Cruelty.

That’s some pretty heavy stuff, “weapon without violence” and “weapon with violence”? Cyberpunk 2077 really has it all! “Exposure to death corpse” is also a fun one (and by that I mean the shoddy translation, I’m not a sadist I promise). There seems to be a lot of sexual content here, more so than The Witcher series had, but it makes sense for a gritty neo-dystopia setting. Plus, considering the gameplay videos and cinematic trailers we’ve seen already, did we expect anything less?

It will be interesting to see what the Western English rating boards will detail in their ratings description. If anything though, this just makes me more excited to play the game (okay, seriously, I’m not a sadist I promise) as this only confirms that CP2077 is closer to being completely finished, which hopefully means it won’t be delayed any further (fingers crossed).

Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 17th.

What do you think? Is Cyberpunk 2077 CD Projekt Red’s most explicit game yet? Did anything surprise you in the ratings? Will PEGI and ESRB rate it any differently? Let us know your thoughts!

As a native portuguese speaker that read the original report I can confirm it's translated well enough, except "exposure to death corpse" translates only to "exposure to corpse". What I find curious is that they show the age each content...

... and the only thing that they consider to be 18+ is cruelty, everything else is 16 or less, yes, things like mutilation, prostitution, suicide and intense sexual relation are curiously considered less severe than that.

Death Corpse sounds like a pretty good death metal band name

Now if they don't dig really deep, and present up with the refuse of human behavior I'll be disappointed.

This could be a problem for youtube videos or twitch streams, if the game gets an "adult only" rating in the US, there is a possibility it will get banned from those platforms.

Not exactly censorship. Just making sure parents aren't unknowingly buying their 8-year-olds stuff like this...

I was playing Postal 2, Manhunt, Sillent Hill 2, Conker's bad fur day, GTA Vice City, The Punisher at the age of 4 and I knew they weren't real and I didn't care, what kind of kids don't know that video games aren't real?

At the age of 4...? Yeah, right xDDDD
I was playing all those same games as a teenager, so you won't get lip from me there, but I wouldn't give Postal 2 or...Agony...to a kid younger than around 10.
Not because "oh it's just a video game" (and I agree), but just for the content inside those games. GTA is vanilla compared to what you can do in Postal 2. No need to f*ck with kids' brains, that's just nihilistic.

Absolutely I did. My dad thought it was halarious. I used to call Postal 2 the game with the shovel dude and gasoline until I was 8. My dad got the games from a friend of his and I played them as well, simple as that.
I played God of War 1 when I was 6-7.

I don't think at the age of 4 I had any mental capacity to play any of those games. All I used to play was NFS II SE

Well I played them, I certainly didn't beat them, but I've been playing games a little before I turned 3, with my first game being prince of persia 3D and I my parents have me video taped playing it on my Name's day(January 7th) and I was brain-dead, but I still managed to... let's say 25% play it. I was failing jumps and dying and mashing buttons when in combat and my dad was helping me.


But yeah I was playing those games at 4 and again when I say play, don't imagine I was good at them, I didn't even know that there were objectives in Postal 2 until I was in first grade.

Wait I can do one better, I didn't realise you were taking a piss on people in Postal 2 until I was in 3rd grade. And I just realized that that noise is the zipper of his pants. XD

Yeah, I wouldn't have called it "playing" when you can barely walk... I was playing games since the age of 4 as well, but we had a knock-off Famicom, so I started with Mario and the likes. At the age of 5 we got a PC, so played some Turok and Blood II: The Chosen as my first games there. Postal 2 came out WAY later than that. Then again, I'm 27.5 right now, so I was already 10-11 when it launched, but probably played it when I was 12 or so (eastern Europe, some russian copy of the game it was - I have to commend the voice acting in the RU version!).

My dad was a gamer ever since the 80s up to 2011 so i played on his old consoles as well. Famicom, Super Famicom, Mega Drive, N64, Saturn(not really, like he/I have 2 games), Dreamcast, PS1 and the first console he bought for "me" was the PS2, yeah, we played a sh!t ton together back then. And yeah, I was 3-4 years old when postal 2 came out and I played it when I was, probably close to 5. I mean I don't see why not. Also I don't think my legs are required to play video games. XD
My brother has been playing video games since he was three and a half years old as he used to get very sick as a baby and was at my grandma/pa's most of the time until the age of 3.
