We know Heavy Rain was a 18 rated game, and that may have led to a few sales loss, but a new edition is being made that makes it more Teen friendly. The game loses a few content to get that desired rating drop in Europe. PEGI (which is a rating agency in Europe) rated Heavy Rain ’18’ citing, “extreme violence, violence towards defenceless people, sexual violence and strong language.”
The new version will not be available in the entire Europe but only the French market and is being named as Heavy Rain Edition Modifiée. The name is self-explanatory. The new rating for this edition is ’16’ and features, “realistic looking violence, nudity of a sexual nature, and strong language”.
