Fallout 4 is one of the most anticipated games of the year, but unlike some of the other titles that have come up in the news a lot, it is not because of the strong content that the game brings you.
However, the Australian Classification board has rated the game recently and given it an MA15+ rating which is “Mature Accompanied” and, according to the classification board, people under the age of 15 should not be allowed access to such a content on their own.
According to the game’s listing on the Australian Classification board’s website, the primary reason for the rating is “strong violence” which is followed by moderate levels of sex, drugs and language.
The only category that has not been marked for Fallout 4 was nudity, suggesting that there will not be any sex-on-a-unicorn-like scenes; but then again The Witcher 3 is known for a completely different set of reasons.
That being said, the Australian law states that “a person may be asked to show proof of their age before hiring or purchasing an MA 15+ film or computer game,” though I am not sure how strongly this will be followed in some parts of the country.
Coming back to other Fallout 4 news, Bethesda has been boasting that the game is going to surpass even the success of Skyrim when it releases. That is in contrast to a few negative comparisons being made between the game and its predecessor – which Pete Hines has had a lot to say about.
Fallout 4 releases November 10.
