ESRB Rates Rocksmith 2014 for Xbox One With Down on a Muff


The Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) has rated Rocksmith 2014 for the Xbox One and Playstation 4 almost 99.999999999999E% confirming that it will be released despite no official confirmations from its publisher Ubisoft.

The ESRB has rated it a Teen Category due to the nature of the lyrics which could be mildly offensive as detailed below:

This is a music and rhythm simulation game in which players learn how to perform songs on an electric guitar. Players simulate strumming guitar strings, score points based on the accuracy of notes hit, and participate in mini-games to test/improve skills. Some mini-games involve brief instances of violence: a cowboy shooting bandits with a pop gun; spaceships shooting lasers at each other; players using a guitar weapon to shoot light blasts at zombies from a first-person perspective. Some song lyrics contain references to suggestive behavior (e.g., “down on a muff . . . I met a cheerleader/Was a real young bleeder”; “But there’s no mistaking who I’m taking to my bed with me tonight”), and the word “a*s” appears in one song.

Rocksmith 2014 was originally released last year for last-gen consoles and featured an overhauled interface with improvements to learning tools. Rocksmith was designed to let you plug in an electric or bass guitar and learn how to play in the fastest way possible with a fully customisable Riff Repeater. No official release date for Xbox One has yet been announced. We’ll keep you posted when Ubisoft drop the details.
