Game 3 Age Rating - Steam DB Clues?

edited February 22 in Total War General Chat
There has been some discussion on the forum regarding how Slaaneshi unit models will fit within the game's age rating and yet stay true to their tabletop appearance (regardless of whether they use the WFB or AoS style of models).

Well, if you look under "Additional Information" on the Steam DB page for game 3, you'll find lines for "has_adult_content" and "has_adult_content_violence", both marked "Yes". It is worth noting that neither game 1 or 2 has either line on Steam DB. The game 1 Blood for the Blood God DLC, however, does have a line for "has_adult_content_violence".

What do you think this means for game 3? Will the game not be launching with the T rating (or the non-US equivalent) that the first two games had? On another related note, will the game not have a Blood for the Blood God DLC, and instead come with blood effects as an option in the base game?

    I can virtually guarantee the game will launch with a T rating just as the other games in this series did, as it makes very little sense to come out with a sequel to a combined trilogy with a different rating. They will likely treat Warhammer 3 much the same way in terms of blood packs as the first 2 games, in that if you own the blood pack DLC for game 1, you get it for free as an option in game 3 a little bit after launch

    probably the early rating is something put in place to be legally sure until the
    content has been rated officially ?

    That seems most logical, though I do wonder why have those lines on Steam DB. What's your take on how it will be handled? Any possibility of an effects/cosmetic DLC pack similar to a Blood for the Blood God DLC, or simply leave it at the Morathi/Harpy treatment and be done with it?

    Warhammer Fantasy is less grimdark than 40k.
    Ogre Kingdoms when CA?
    Dogs of War need Ogres and halflings.

    I'm very sure that CA will try to keep the rating down and only raise with the blood DLC (which those who own the previous onces will probably get for "free").

    I hope CA at least releases the blood DLC at launch this time.

    Well.. If they are going to increase the rating, then doing it on the third game when the fanbase is already well-established, is the time to do it..

    Maybe there will be a setting you can change in game:

    Bras on/Bras off

    They are going to use the most recent models, which already are covered where necessary, Morathi has even less clothes, so don't expect them to change the models just so people can see virtual tits.

    It would be great but taking into account how stupidly companies chase those ratings I doubt it.

    Some designs may be too violent/weird, like the Great Unclean One with intestines coming from his guts.

    CA should expand Blood and Gore, turn it into Blood and Gore and Bosom.
