Grand Theft Auto V rated R18+ for drug use

AUSTRALIA'S classification board has rated Grand Theft Auto V as R18+, restricting its purchase to adults.

Gamers have speculated hard about the game since its predecessor and any new information or content about the game has been quickly ravaged by keen fans.

The decision has been placed squarely on Board claims that the game offers rewards for drug use.

Australia has some of the harshest content classification laws outside of the middle east, with most games needing significant modifications to comply with local laws.
