Eat Sleep Play's upcoming Twisted Metal for the PS3 has been rated Mature by the ESRB. The ESRB's listing on the game also provides some additional details on the game's plot.

Twisted Metal once again centers around a global competition of the same name. Combatants drive vehicles armed to the teeth with "chainsaws, machine guns, flame throwers, and missiles." They then attempt to destroy each other in an effort to win prizes beyond their imagining.

The standard "last man standing" fights from the original games are joined by new modes. The ESRB mentions one mode in which players try to capture enemy leaders. You don't just toss these leaders in the backseat. Instead, you hitch them to your back bumper and drag them, bloodied and screaming, down the road.

The storyline is conveyed through live-action scenes presented between matches. It seems that these scenes are the most explicit parts of the game.

"A variety of live-action sequences depict more intense acts of violence: a serial killer getting stabbed in the face with scissors; a woman holding a bloodied saw and severed head; a character stabbing hospital patients with a machete; a woman bleeding from the neck and lying on the street," says the ESRB.

The ESRB also mentions that the words “motherf**ker,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” all make appearances, but in truth sailor language is a bit tame compared to face-stabbing.

Twisted Metal is due on February 14th. The Limited Edition of the game will be packaged with a download voucher for PS2 title Twisted Metal Black. Black, like this latest game, is rated Mature.
