The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has rated Tom Clancy’s Division with a Mature 17+ rating, which means that the content is “generally suitable for ages 17 and up.“. The game received this rating because of the content descriptors “Blood”, “Intense Violence” and “Strong Language”. For a more detailed explanation of what parts have been reviewed in particular, have a look at their rating summary below:

This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of a sleeper agent of The Division, a secret government agency designed to respond to major disasters. As players explore urban areas after a bio-terrorism attack, they combat street gangs and militias in realistic tactical fire fights; characters mostly use machine guns, shotguns, turrets, and grenades to kill enemies. Combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and large splashes of blood. Several sequences depict corpses, some tied up or hanging from railings, and players must rescue hostages in some levels of the game. Cutscenes occasionally depict bound hostages being stabbed or shot in the head. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in the dialogue.ESRB Rating Summary

Besides rescuing hostages it’s also interesting to note that we will come across the one or other cutscene while playing through the story/campaign mode, so ECHOs won’t be the only story related gameplay element that lead us through it.

Around a month ago, on December 1st 2015, The Division already received it’s first classification by the Australian Classification, a MA (Mature Accompanied) 15+ rating.
