Assassin's Creed: Valhalla has been rated by Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), revealing interesting new details about the game. The rating summary states that the game contains drug usage and sex scenes among other things.

Thanks to the official ESRB rating, we have a couple of new details about Ubisoft's upcoming heavy hitter Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. We already knew that the game will be quite brutal with decapitation and more realistic combat when compared to Odyssey, but it looks like Ubisoft Montreal team decided to go the extra mile to make this Viking-themed adventure, potentially one of the best entry in the series.

According to the rating summary, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla contains some sexual material. There's a mission taking place in a brothel, where topless woman are straddling men, with player character agreeing to "lay with" a man. Apparently, kissing is depicted before the scene fades to black, which is similar to scenes from Odyssey. 

On top of this, a handful of sequences depict screen distortion and discolouration with impaired movements after players' character consumes mushrooms or inhales mushroom-based fumes. "I may still be buzzing from these mushrooms," is one of the dialogue choices.

Last but not list, the description confirms that Valhalla will have the previously rumoured X-ray assassinations , which are described as "zoom-in sequences" that "depict victims' bones, organs, and muscles getting damaged by players' blade."
