American ratings group listing shows players will experience nudity-free sexual encounters, drunk driving, and smoking pot.

Grand Theft Auto V's listing on the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has revealed some of the various misdemeanors players will experience in the game, including nudity-free sexual encounters with a prostitute, drunk driving, and smoking pot.

 

Spotted on Kotaku, the American ratings group has collated an extensive list (with some mild spoilers) of the open-world game's encounters with sex, violence, and drug use.

"Players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill various enemies (e.g., rival gang members); players also have the ability to shoot non-adversary civilians, though this may negatively affect players' progress as a penalty system triggers a broad police search. Blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and the game contains rare depictions of dismemberment."

"In one sequence, players are directed to use various instruments and means to extract information from a character; the sequence is intense and prolonged, and it involves some player interaction (i.e., responding to on-screen prompts).

"The game includes depictions of sexual material/activity: implied fellatio and masturbation; various sex acts that the player's character procures from a prostitute--while no nudity is depicted in these sequences, various sexual moaning sounds can be heard. Nudity is present, however, primarily in two settings: a topless lap dance in a strip club and a location that includes male cult members with exposed genitalia in a non-sexual context."

"Within the game, TV programs and radio ads contain instances of mature humor: myriad sex jokes; depictions of raw sewage and feces on a worker's body; a brief instance of necrophilia (no nudity is depicted)."

"Some sequences within the larger game allow players to use narcotics (e.g., smoking from a bong, lighting a marijuana joint); cocaine use is also depicted."

Finally, "players' character can, at various times, consume alcohol and drive while under the influence" and "the words “f**k,” “c*nt,” and “n**ger” can be heard in the dialogue."

Grand Theft Auto V will launch for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17. Grand Theft Auto Online will follow on October 1.

Australia is retarded when they rate something. Like the whole crap that happend with Saints Row 4. They bitched over one weapon. Yet SR3 used the simliar weapons before and they didn't bat an eye. What was stopping the R18 rating anyway? Last time I checked, you're an adult at 18.

It has become better though. Now pretty much only EXTREME violence (somewhere above Mortal Kombat 9, just for reference) and showing off Nazi symbols will get your game censored. In earlier years they would just outright ban the games. Hence piracy still being EXTREMELY prevalent in Germany. USK really hurt the gaming market in Germany -_-
