Verdun, a multiplayer shooter set during World War 1 which has only been on PC, has been rated by PEGI for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The rating was tweeted by PEGI themselves but has since been deleted.
In other World War 1 news, EA’s Patrick Soderlund intially dismissed the idea of setting the new Battlefield game in the era as he felt younger customers may have not heard of the war.
World War 1, we were worried that many of the younger consumers out there didn’t know that there was a World War 2 or Vietnam, so World War 1…
I would suspect that many younger gamers will find Patrick’s comments rather insulting. One also has to wonder why EA are worried about ‘younger consumers’ when the Battlefield games have always had Mature, 18+ rating.
