on September 26, 2016 9:11 AM

Today the ESRB rated the upcoming PS4 exclusive The Last Guardian, which will release in North America on December 6th.

The game got a T for Teen with blood and fantasy violence descriptors, but what is more interesting, is that the rating blurb reveals quite a few gameplay details. Keep in mind that spoiler extremists might consider the last part a mild spoiler, so you have been warned.

“This is an action-adventure game in which players control a young boy as he explores ruins and solves puzzles with his giant animal companion (Trico). Players can command Trico to zap blocked passages or strike enemies with a lightning attack that shoots from its tail. Enemies in suits of armor generally break into pieces when defeated; though soldiers sometimes emit blood-like flashes or red symbols when injured. In some levels, the player’s character can rip the helmets off enemy characters, though no gore is shown. Cutscenes also depict acts of violence and occasional blood: Trico attacked by spears or swords; Trico bleeding from wounds.”
