Grand Theft Auto Officially Rated R18+ In Australia

Grand Theft Auto V won’t be banned in Australia! Oh joyous day!

The eagerly-anticipated next instalment in the the Grand Theft Auto series has scraped through the Classification Board unscathed this morning. The game will now carry an official R18+ rating for Drug Use.

Drug Use was classified as high-impact by the Classification Board in its review, whereas themes, violence, language, nudity and sex were all deemed to have a strong impact.

The game that Australia gets will also be the same version shipped internationally, too, as Rockstar Games showed off the original version to the Classification Board, rather than a version modified for questionable content.

Here’s the Classification Board’s verdict on GTA V.
