The Sims 4 given 18+ rating in Russia because you can be involved in same-sex relationships


A bit more of a weird news story than normal, but something which will effect those in Russia.

If you’re below 18 in Russia and somehow get hold of The Sims 4, you’re committing a criminal offence according to their law. The reason for this is that The Sims 4 includes same-sex relationships and that’s deemed illegal unless you’re older than 18.

A fan of the game asked the official Russian Twitter account why it was given an 18+ rating in Russia and they said it was just complying with law number 436-FZ, “On Protection of Children from Information Harmful to Their Health and Development.”

The Sims 4 is expected to be released this fall. More information on the game will be posted as soon as we hear about it.

  1. Let’s hope those who are younger than 18 don’t manage to get this game..we wouldn’t want them to get into any kind of trouble. But tbh, there’s probably at least a few minors who have already got it. Be careful! xD
