Last week we reported that the new SIMS 4-DLC named "my wedding stories" would not appear in Russia. The reason? The fear that one could not publish the DLC free of censor-free in Russia. Finally, in the DLC, the story of a homosexual relationship between the characters Cam and Cathedral is told. However, since Russia classifies such representations as " homosexual propaganda ", the decision was taken to publish the DLC there.

Sims 4 DLC comes in Russia
Now, however, one has reveled and announced to publish the DLC in Russia. Decisive for this was mainly according to the Sims team the feedback of the community. Especially in the Russian LGBTQIA + community, there were many voices, which complained about the decision. It was considered the act of not publishing the DLC, not as a form of resistance to the regime in Russia, but as exclusion of the Russian LGBTQIA + community.
In a message from the SIMS team, it is said that you will now publish the DLC unchanged in Russia. Release appointment is the 23. February , which thus represents the released time for the DLC worldwide. Sims 4 has in Russia a age release from 18 years , due to the regulations in terms of public presentation of homosexuality. For comparison, Sims 4 has an age release of 6 years in Germany.

Does EA keep his promise?
Under this prefix, it's a little bizarre that you did not want to publish the DLC in Russia. Finally, homosexuality in Sims is nothing new, recognizable at the age release in Russia. It remains to be seen whether Electronic Arts actually released the DLC unchanged in the Russian market, or bent at the last minute and some elements strokes. The latter would certainly be another blow in the face for the Russian LGBTQIA + community.
