You can turn off gore. And you can play 90% of the game stealthily and just sneak pass them.

any option for the strong language? it doesn't make sense to me that they would go through the trouble of putting in a gore filter and yet leave the other element that makes the game so 'mature' without an option to tone down a bit. I'm just curious, so please don't bash me about it. just asking

That would require redoing the lines and the mouth animations where the gore is just randomized animations and is not for cutscenes.

audio would sound choppy and they would cut out alot of lines out. My reasoning for the gore censor option is for people who get nauseas from gore

The game is not focused on gore, it's there but it has just enough to make you realize the state of the world in Tlou. Now, if you get killed there are some pretty gruesome scenes that show you die, but nothing any worse to the ones back in the day of Resident Evil 2.

 

As far as dealing with your oppoents in game, you can go in guns blazing (provided you've saved ammo and are not on survivor) which is obviously going to be violent, if you shoot someone, blood does hit the wall and all that. You can sneak kill them, which in  my opinion, isn't that gruesome in terms of visuals, you kill them with a shank and can barely see anything, besides it happens so fast there isnt much time to see anything (other than the amazing facial expressions of struggle Smiley Happy )

 

Would I let a five to ten year old play this game? No. But maybe go rent it and you'll see the story is so great that everything else just takes a back seat.

 

Oh and if you're a total badass, I'm sure you could avoid 95% of enemies in the game completely through stealth.

Wait... Gruesome violence takes the fun out of it for you? Well the game isnt supposed to make you feel like killing people us fun. Each time I exit combat I tend to feel relieved and diagusted.
You can turm the gore off though.

There is a gore toggle, but I'm pretty sure that strong language will not be affected when it is turned on.

 

There are ways to completely avoid combat by taking the stealth route, but there are going to be sections where you will be forced to fight people.

 

Also, I'm almost positive that cutscenes will NOT be censored by the gore toggle, so watch out for that.

There are times when strong language, when used effectively, can enhance an experience and make it have a bolder or stronger impact. I think The Last of Us might be there.

But a real good example is Pulp Fiction.
