Editor’s note: For games (computer and video games), rating plays a very important role. In the present case, the USK is responsible for the classification in Germany and German-speaking countries, according to which games are placed in age-restricted schemes (in this case for 12-year-olds) so that they can be marketed and targeted. The USK 12 category, by the way, includes, among other things, historical and strategy games, in which Cossacks: European Wars fits perfectly. The decision is also important from a business point of view: the lower the rating of the game, the more age groups it reaches, in other words the product can reach a larger customer base.
