Truly enjoyable game for ages 11+

As a 17 year old, I recently played through the game and I can say that PEGI's rating for this game is way too high. This game might have a little bit of blood, but this can be turned off in settings, as well as optional violence (meaning you don't have to do it). There is bad language but it is quite mild, and can, again, be turned off if you so wish. No sex, no drugs, nudity, profanity or anything like that, (except if you count it being quite obvious if your horse is male.) Overall the game is enjoyable and very immersive and expansive, hence it took 8 years to make. I am so confident in my age opinion that I allowed my younger brother, age 11 to play the game and he seemed completely fine with the content.
