Cyberpunk 2077: Leaked 18+ Rating in Brazil; 8K AI Upscaled Version of CD Projekt-Released 15 Minute Gameplay Video

As part of our services towards making the world a better place, we bring you two pieces of news regarding one of the most hotly anticipated video games in the last years. CD Projekt Red's upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to be one of the games of the decade, much like their previous The Witcher 3 was. And now, we have some additional information on what we can expect in-game when it comes to the maturity of its world. While the game hasn't yet been rated by the ESRB or PEGI, Brazil's game ratings board has apparently already given it their own, and it's 18+. The one 18+ rating the game has received is that of "Cruelty"; check out the leaked list on the image below to see exactly what we're looking at, though it seems obvious that CD Projekt didn't pull any punches in making this game an accurate representation of a cyberpunk world.

The second piece of news here is the release of an 8K, AI-enhanced version of the 15-minute gameplay video that CD Projekt Red released back in 2019. YouTube user Ani HVX has uploaded the video to YouTube, with the AI helping in image clarity, artifact removal, and overall pixel density over the originally-released video. Yes, it's uploaded on YouTube, so that will again degrade quality on its own; that's why a 16 GB uncompressed video of the same 15 minutes is also available for download (expect to hit download limits on Google Drive though). This 2019 build of the game doesn't feature ray tracing (which the game will support), and it still features the old female V design. Quality of the final product can be better than this build (or, *trembles in fear*, worse).

So cruelty of all the things is the one that requires 18+?

I wonder, though, if it's simply cruelty or it's so hard-core that it scarred the minds of the rating agency staff :laugh:

Joke aside, Brazil's rating system has a list of aggravating elements that may bump up the rating that a certain title would otherwise receive.

you think so? I mean idk about you but cruelty can mean a lot of things, like being sexually abused publically, then kicked around being left for dead or some insanely fd up stuff like that.

Ratings are contextual in some countries. And some sick-ass torture scene, for example, would get a stricter rating, than say a film or game full of swearing. Likewise, non-sexual nudity might garner a 15, but a sexually abusive scene might be 18.

Anybody that thinks cruelty is something we should all enjoy needs their own 18+ tag.

Age ratings... yeah. Who's got time for that? I never did... My parents never did...

My body is ready, bring on that second outbreak in September and lock us down. :roll::roll:

Wasn't sure where to put this Cyberpunk one hour of gameplay, so here it is. Looks very cool indeed.

I really do hope it has a good quality story, and not just mindless shooting and crappy quests.
