THE WITCHER 2 - ASSASSINS OF KINGS is a fantasy role-playing game set in a version of the Middle Ages. The game was classified '18' for very strong language.

The game contains several uses of very strong language. Most of the uses are said in exclamation, but occasionally they are directed at other characters. The BBFC's Guidelines at '15' state 'The strongest terms (for example, 'cunt') may be acceptable if justified by the context. Aggressive or repeated use of the strongest language is unlikely to be acceptable'. Given the number of uses of very strong language and their occasionally directed nature, the game was therefore more appropriately classified at '18'.

The game also includes infrequent strong sex scenes. These are portrayed in 'cutscenes' and cannot be controlled by the player, although they are triggered by selecting dialogue responses. The sex is not shown with any detail, although there is some breast and female frontal nudity. In one scene, a woman is shown using a riding crop to whip another woman as part of a sexual act. The game also contains some strong violence, particularly in 'cutscenes'. One scene depicts a man being attacked with a dagger used against his groin. Although the actual detail is not shown, the scene is quite bloody. Other 'cutscenes' include similar bloody attacks, although there is generally a lack of strong detail. The gameplay violence is less bloody with no injuries clearly seen. The game also includes frequent use of strong language.
