Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain Gets An R18+ Rating in Australia

Possibly Kojima’s last Metal Gear – Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain – has now been rated in Australia. While many of us were expecting some intense reaction to The Phantom Pain in Australia, considering how they reacted with Hotline Miami 2, it seems The Phantom Pain and its “High Impact Themes and Violence” will make it to the country without any issue.

The Australian Classification Board rated the game on May 20 and gave it an R18 + rating. Which means if you aren’t  18 years old or above, you can not buy the game on your own.

Moreover, the board revealed that The Phantom Pain also features moderate level of impact language in addition to mild nudity. Meanwhile, sex is of moderate impact as well.

Surely, fans in Australia will be happy that the game isn’t banned.

On a related note, in a recent interview Stefanie Joosten spoke about Quiet and how players may start to hate some of the game’s characters. She also mentioned a really dark tone. You can read more on what she had to say here.

Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain is slated for a release on September 1. The title is a continuation of the story from Ground Zeroes. The game will hit PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
