Age RatingsAge Ratings

PEGI 7+ with fear and violence. ESRB rated this EVERYONE 10+: Players use swords and magic spells to defend against fantastical enemies (e.g., giants, ghosts, stone statues); enemies generally cry out and disappear amid puffs of smoke. The game includes some thematic elements within text (e.g., a child's death, a reference to being poisoned); one cutscene depicts a woman dying. A handful of sequences depict drunk characters (e.g., birds drinking from bottles, hiccuping, stumbling); some characters also smoke tobacco pipes.
