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.
