Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Jeez 15+???

Its not a 15+, the game is easy compared to its inspirations like DayZ there is blood that now can be filtered which is huge plus even then it isn't that much blood, small puddle on floor. The only thing is proximity chat, meaning you can trash talk your opponents before a fight and the director, kind of like a show host, can talk to you at time, but again it can be turned off. This can even be played alone with offline modes and with friends with duos and private servers, so yes this game is so entertaining and will appeal to ages 11+

Creative battle Royale features bloody violence

The Darwin project features infrequent and spread out violence, which creates a large amount of blood that spurts out into the air and onto the snow. You can use axes and bows to kill other cartoonish humans and deer. With parental supervision, you can prevent online bullying and inappropriate content by muting other players. During the game, you will hear some usage of mild profanities even if not online.
