Diablo 3 Expansion Trailer Rated

Every video to be shown publicly needs to receive an age rating and a rating for a Diablo 3 Expansion trailer has been posted on the German ratings board site USK. It gives the trailer a rating of 12.

Update: As there’s some confusion in comments, note that this rating applies only to the content of the video to be shown publicly at Gamescom. This rating tells us *nothing* about the content of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, which will in all likelihood be Mature, the same as Diablo 3 and all previous titles in the series.


Blizzard’s public DiabloWikiGamescom 2013 schedule begins on Thursday but they are scheduled to hold a press conference for media tomorrow where the DiabloWikiDiablo 3 Expansion, Reaper of Souls is expected to be revealed. That or a new wallpaper.

  1. Thanks, nobbie. ^^

  2. I’m betting we’ll get a wallpaper to celebrate the teaser.

  3. finally the USK is good for something 🙂

  4. You guys certainly have a very long night before you today (or a short day). ^^

  5. PG-12? Stupid name catering to kids?
    This expansion is sounding worse and worse.

    • It’s just the CGI trailer that has been given the PG-12 rating.

      • Maybe, but it is impossible that Blizz will make expansion for players 18+

      • Which is sad because the CGI trailers are the only good things about Blizz games these days.

        • Diablo 3 was rated M for Mature in the US and comparable ratings in other countries due to violence and adult themes and such. There’s no way Diablo 3 expansion won’t have a similar rating.

          This is just for the trailer, so it can be shown publicly at the show. The way every R rated movie has a PG trailer that can be shown on TV. (One year during pre-D3 the gameplay was rated 16+ or whatever they call it in Germany, and Bliz had to hastily rearrange their demo area so that people waiting in line outside could *not* see the demo machines.)

    • Diablo III game rating: Mature
      Diablo III itemization rating: Infant

  6. Getting ready for tomorrows… Got fridge packed. 😀

    Watching on twitch… so far its all exclusive content “at launch”…

    That sure is progress from few years ago when some games exclusive to a single platform.
    Now they can only squish out some maps/skins. 🙂

    Can’t beat the $$$.

  7. Hell yeah… och wait rating 12+,… fraq noooooo

    • 12+ tells me: This cinematic is just a slight teaser of the evil D3X1 antagonist at best (because they don’t want to give away the story in advance), and a strong teaser for the next class (possibly druid or a new druidic class). Can we show some druid vs. monster action to 12 year old kids? Yes, we can!

      • You’re probably right on content, but the rating tells us nothing about the content of the trailer. It’s purely a “mature content” rating that says there won’t be graphic violence, or nudity/sex, or drug use, or other stuff the ratings boards oppose.

        Thinking about it, would anything in any of the D3 cinematics qualify for that? I can’t remember anything in any of D3’s FMV or 2D sketch movies that wouldn’t get a PG-12 rating. All the gore and blood was in the game, not in the movies.

  8. At what time does the conference begin? (my english has become a little rusty, so if I make any serious mistakes, please point them out):)

    Also, does anyone know of site where a very hyped up person like me can watch the whole thing?:)
