Play OverviewPlay Overview

Goat Simulator 3 (2014) is the sequel to Goat Simulator, where you cause mayhem and destruction as a goat (or other animal) in a relatively realistic world with exaggerated physics. This game adds several new challenges and ways to play to the game, like online multiplayer and unusual mini-games. It's a celebration of strangeness and chaos that lets you wreak havoc to your heart's content.

You play a cloven-hoofed goat in an open-world action game where you steer your goat to do as much damage as possible. the original game started as a joke prototype that caught on due to its extremely silly action and developed a cult following.

The game is popular because of the bizarre, silly and overblown violent action. You head-butt the locals, ram into buildings, cause explosions, and even set off rockets. Unlike other destructible open worlds (like Lego games) here you have no set objectives, goals or busy work to attend to. The incentive is the world itself - both discovering more places to go and even sillier pranks to pull.

Goat Simulator 3 takes you to explore the vast open world of San Angora, filled to the brim with varied locales, wacky characters, mini-games and events to participate in. As you play, you unlock new types of "goat" to play as, including a striped goat (a zebra), a tall goat (giraffe), and even a goldfish. you can also find items to decorate your goat with, including toilet rolls, tea trays, and a working jetpack.

The result is a game that is as fun as it is bizarre. It's one of the experiences that kids love and parents find bewildering (which only makes kids love it more). The latest entry in the series matches the peculiar play of earlier games while adding some new twists, jokes, explosions, and of course an endless supply of goats.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 12 for Violence and Language. The purpose of the game is for the goat to cause as much chaos and destruction as possible. This can result in violence against human characters. For example, if the goat delivers a head butt to a propane tank, it will explode and anything within the vicinity will be set alight. This will cause human and other animal characters to run or roll about, although no visible harm is seen to come to them and they continue as normal once the flames are extinguished. Similarly, characters can be hit by moving vehicles but no injuries are shown. The goat is also able to attack human characters, who scream and shout and fall to the ground. Characters who have been knocked over may scream again if trampled upon. There is use of mild bad language ('*!@?*').
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Earlier Goat Simulator games in the series were rated PEGI 16 for occasional use of a sexual expletive.
