Call of Duty Black Ops 3 is for Adults Only in Australia

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 will only be playable by adults in Australia, according to ACB (Australian Classification Board).

Since there are so many Call of Duty games and I don’t remember that well so correct if I’m wrong, but I don’t think Call of Duty has ever been rated above MA15+; so this is a series first.

Call of Duty has always featured violence but it getting an adults only rating ( R18+) isn’t something I expected to see.

On the other hand, ratings for other regions are still pending and as we know, Australian ratings board is a bit strict when it comes to violence in video games.

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 deals with human augmentation, tech implants etc, and it is possible that at certains points we’ll get to see soldiers operated on, this may have had a hand it the mentioning of “High impact violence” by ACB.

ACB also revealed mild drug use, moderate language, strong themes and moderate sexual elements. We’ll have to see what the verdict is in North America and Europe.

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 is expected in November for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Last-gen versions are also in development, but due to limited hardware power we’ll get less features.
