Age RatingsAge Ratings

Although some versions are rated PEGI 18, however Battlefield V is rated PEGI 16. This is for frequent scenes of strong violence and strong language. Violence is typical of war time first person shooters. Players are armed with a variety of firearms, blades, explosives and vehicles such as tanks and aircraft. When soldiers are shot and killed, there’s often a spray of blood and they collapse to the floor. Melee attacks consist of using various weapons such as machetes, knives, hatchets and broken bottles to stab other soldiers and they collapse to the floor when killed. This game includes multiple uses of the word “*!@?*” and its derivatives. One cutscene shows a soldier that has been hanged for being a deserter.
This game has been rated ESRB MATURE 17+.

Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
