The Entertainment Software Rating Board from the U.S. has just posted a listing for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, mentioning new details about the game's story and its gameplay, while giving it an M rating.

The ESRB has made a habit of leaking not just the existence of certain games but also for revealing special details about ones that are going to appear in the near future.

This time, the ratings board has just posted a classification for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, detailing the plot of the game and presenting new information about its actual gameplay, like the fact that Lara will get to explore gruesome lairs and battle demonic soldiers.

Check out the full description below, via the ESRB website.

"This is an action game in which players assume the role of a young explorer named Lara Croft who investigates a mystery surrounding an ancient queen. As Lara, players explore caves and ruins, and use arrows, firearms (e.g., pistols, shotguns, machine guns), and bladed weapons to battle wild animals, human enemies, and demonic soldiers."

"During several sequences, Lara is depicted getting stabbed, beaten, strangled, or shot by enemies; these close-up deaths occur as fail scenarios, usually when players miss certain action cues. A handful of cutscenes also depict enemy characters shot at close range. Large blood-splatter effects occur when characters are hit; one level depicts a demonic lair covered in dismembered human corpses--scattered limbs and pools of blood are prominent."

Considering the new Tomb Raider game is released on March 5 worldwide for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, you can expect to hear much more details about the game and its recently confirmed multiplayer mode, in the following weeks.
