The Australian classification Board has now rated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

The Australian Classification Board rated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain “R18+”. The consumer advice says the game includes “high impact themes, violence and online interactivity”.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is also a game with a lot of mature content. The game has both high impact themes and violence. There is also a moderate level of impact of language and sex in the game too. The only mild impact in the entire game is nudity.

The R18+ rating for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a first for the franchise. Previous Metal Gear Solid games wasn’t rated that high over in Australia. It looks like Hideo Kojima has pushed the boundaries of themes and violence that will be in the new game.

It will be interesting if New Zealand has a similar R18+ rating for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain too. A local retailer known as The Warehouse no longer sells R18+ content. It’s possible they won’t be selling The Phantom Pain too. They already banned Grand Theft Auto V and Mortal Kombat X.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain releases in September for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 platforms.
