One territory can now purchase R18+ games in Australia


The Australian Capital Territory this morning became the first state or territory to pass the R18+ law in Australia. In June, after a decade of political strife, all Australian states and territories agreed to a bill ending the country's much criticized ban on adult games. ACT is now the first to make it law for adults to have access to games rated 18+.

ACT is the smallest of Australia's self-governing internal territories, home to only 1.6% of the country's total population. Australian gamers should now hope the news results in a domino effect across the country. Despite the bill being passed by federal government, each state and territory must pass the law under its own jurisdiction.
