Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Given 18 Rating In UK

Infinity Ward’s upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has received an 18 rating by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), MCVUK reports. This marks the first time a Call of Duty game has received such a rating.

The only bit of information regarding the basis for the BBFC’s decision is that the game contains “strong bloody violence,” which was based on a 40-minute collection of cut scenes and gameplay. Last year, the BBFC smacked a 15 rating on Treyarch’s Call of Duty: World at War, even though that game contains some of the more brutal and disturbing violence seen in the Call of Duty franchise to date.

The BBFC based that decision on “strong violence and language,” which makes me wonder just what the hell Modern Warfare 2 has in it that is so much more disturbing and intense than previous COD installments (other than ice axes to the chest). For some context, other recent games to receive 18 ratings from the BBFC include Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, Dragon Age: Origins and Left 4 Dead 2.
