GRAC Age Rating Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • As of December 2, 2019, publishers wishing to publish their digital app or game content to South Korea will be able to obtain a South Korean GRAC age rating for their content via Age Ratings module in Partner Center.  

    For partners who did not change the Partner Center default setting to distribute in all markets in the pricing and availability module, no action is required as your product will be distributed in South Korea now that you have the GRAC rating. (This applies to products submitted or updated after May 5 2018; products that have not been updated since before that date will need to update their product in order to ensure they have responded to the current version of the Age Ratings questionnaire.) Microsoft encourages you to review your pricing and availability settings, the assigned rating, and your product metadata to ensure all is configured appropriately. 

    For partners who opted out of distributing their product to South Korea but would now like to make it available, you will have to update your settings in the Pricing and Availability module in Partner Center for your products (App, Add-ons and Bundles etc.) and add Korea market. If the update requires you to answer the Age Ratings questionnaire, you will be prompted to complete the module before the update can be published. Microsoft suggests that you expand your game availability to all markets and let Partner Center handle geo-political restrictions automatically.
