Ubisoft has sent Watch Dogs back to the Australian Classification Board and the game received an 18+ rating.
In accordance to the Australian Classification Board,
R 18+ material is restricted to adults. Such material may contain classifiable elements such as sex scenes and drug use that are high in impact. Some material classified R18+ may be offensive to sections of the adult community. A person may be asked for proof of their age before purchasing, hiring or viewing R18+ films and computer games at a retail store or cinema.
Watch Dogs was originally rated MA15+ in September 2013, but was just modified to 18+ due to “References to sexual violence and sex scenes.”
