Storytelling with purpose – DONTNOD Entertainment and Xbox Game Studios conducted on-the-ground research and partnered closely with cultural, mental health and gender advocates to craft a thoughtful, true-to-life experience. The game uses puzzles to unlock portions of the game. The idea goes back to the original DOOM chasing keys down.

This game is rated mature with references to drugs etc. There is moderate blood and strong language. Violence is also moderate.
