RATINGS: ADULTS ONLY (SENSITIVE CONTENT)
This video game is primarily intended for a desensitized audience.
The goal of this game is to stage subversive content: raw violence, very suggestive content, raw humor, gambling, drugs. Not recommended for minors.
For every game:
There is no perfect duration for a session. Each player or parent must decide. In any case, the time per session should not be detrimental to basic needs: eating, sleeping, socializing with friends and family, going to school…
More specifically for this game:
Each Incursion (or mission) is split up into three Sub-Zones. Depending on the objective and the approach chosen, it can take between 5 to -15 minutes to complete a Sub-Zone. You can then extract or end a mission, whenever you choose, so you do not need to complete all three Sub-Zones on one map before the Incursion ends.
