Rated for younger players in the US. ESRB EVERYONE 10+ with alcohol and tobacco reference, comic mischief, mild cartoon, violence, suggestive themes. The game includes several comical depictions of characters, including a scene in which a "Meathook" character turns his back to the camera to reveal a slightly exposed buttocks (e.g., "plumber's crack"). During a sword fight, one of the characters uses a suggestive metaphor to describe battle (e.g., "Sword fighting is kinda like making love. It's not always what you do, it's what you say."). While players have no direct control over the sword combat, they can sometimes make/hear comments such as "prepare to die" and "I will milk every drop of blood from your body." One character is depicted with a cigar in his mouth, and another character discusses how rum is an ingredient in a grog mixture.
