So, last dev movie really scared me badly, it wasnt the monster tho, it was PEGI 12 rating http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vBpbj3sC2E

How can we expect proper Elder Scrolls with this rating? Yes I know, we all have seen it coming after cute Ogrim and Harpies with makeup. But how does any daedra fit in? How do you actually make a PEGI - 12 game with Molag Bal as main villain?

Here is my guess on ESO lore entry:
Daughter of Coldharbour - a woman Molag Bal has been very mean to. That made her so sad, that she turned into monstrous supervampire

Any thoughts how to put it better?

I expected it from childish artstyle elements, but the game is still not rated, so I thought little rage-ing wont do any harm :)

It's a preliminary - even FFXIV got PEGI 16, so I think it can go up still; censors probably have not seen the full game yet. Skyrim has PEGI 18, Oblivion has 16, Morrowind has 12.

Limited amount of blood, limited nudity, no overtly sexual scenes (or even overtly implied) or extreme violence so far has given it 12, I suppose, but you wouldn't need much to bring it up. Add a quest where you need to decapitate a body - without showing it - and then putting the head on a stake and that would probably be enough for 16.

Exactly. How to explain rape to a 12 year old. Not going to happen.

Its likely that it will have a lower rating, purely so that there is a larger audience able to play.
However this particular video may only be rated PEGI 12.

Either way, rating shouldn't do much to the game play.

It might be that - PEGI's official side doesn't have TESO yet in it's database - but the official game site does have that provisional PEGI 12 rating too up itself.

one of PEGI's deciding factors "Discrimination." sure, races in TES discriminating against khajiits or argonians or dark elves (or any race) isnt really that big of a deal, but according to PEGI, any discrimination results in a 18 rating. idk if it translates to non humans though, seeing that this is a fantasy game. i dont know too much about this since im not from europe; im not trying to look like an idiot

Just looked up the PEGI rating system...do they not have any alcohol in TESO? That goblin quest from the QuakeCon footage seemed pretty graphic.

How is this 12?

Maybe its just Zenimax hinting 'Give us this rating despite the actual game'

Well, seeing as Morrowind as PEGI 12 and still had this guy on it, I suppose there is still some home. Then again, rules might have been more laxed back then :P

Yeh, those PEGI ratings are based solely on realistic the violence is.
Its safe to say that given Australian politician views the game will come under an R18+ rating in which you will need to do a mental health check and a police check to buy, then require law enforcement supervision to play.
