Saints Row IV denied classification in Australia; Volition to make changes

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Even with the introduction of its adult content-friendly R18+ rating earlier this year, one game has proven itself way too extreme for the more-relaxed Australian Classification Board. That game is Saints Row IV, which has been refused classification from the board.

The reason being, according to the ACB, is that, “Saints Row IV, includes interactive, visual depictions of implied sexual violence which are not justified by context. In addition, the game includes elements of illicit or proscribed drug use related to incentives or rewards. Such depictions are prohibited by the computer games guidelines."

As a result, publisher Deep Silver announced that Volition will rework the game to better suit the ACB’s restrictions. “Volition, the developer, are reworking some of the code to create a version of the game for this territory by removing the content which could cause offence without reducing the outlandish gameplay that Saints Row fans know and love,” the publisher told Joystiq.

So, I’m guess that means the Dubstep Gun's staying then, right?

While Deep Silver didn’t provide a release date for Saints Row IV: Aussie Edition, the game is still on track for its North American and European launches on August 20 and August 23, respectively.
