Like every previous mainline Call of Duty game, Black Ops Cold War is rated M for Mature in the United States. The game will have blood and gore, drug references, intense violence, strong language, and suggestive themes. There will also be in-game purchases.
The ratings summary, meanwhile, sheds a little more light on the violence and themes of Black Ops Cold War. “Battles are highlighted by realistic gunfire, blood-splatter effects, and cries of pain. In addition to ranged combat, players have the ability to stab or pistol-whip enemies close-up, or use them as human shields,” the description says. “Some weapons cause characters to explode into bloody chunks of flesh.”
