The Sims 4 Receives ‘Adults Only’ Rating in Russia

The Russian Federation has placed an 18+ rating on The Sims 4, marking the game as “prohibited for children” due to a controversial law restricting the promotion of same-sex relationships.

The latest Sims game has been rated ‘Adults Only’ in Russia, because it contains same-sex relationships.

The Sims 4, which is due to be released later this year, was this week awarded a rating prohibiting its sale to minors in the country.

Same-sex relationships have been present in the EA franchise since the first game in 2000, with same-sex adoptions and marriage later added to the series.

The Sims 4′s official Russian Twitter account explained: “18+ rating has been assigned in accordance with the law number 436-FZ, ‘On the protection of children from information harmful to their health and development’.”

A previous game in the franchise received a 12+ rating in 2009, but Russia has heavily cracked down on portrayals of same-sex relationships in recent years.

    Just shows how backwards the Russians are… It’s time they overthrew their government and got a new democratically elected one… unless they are all backwards, bigots?!

    I bet their rating is rarely enforced anyway.
