State of Decay refused classification “Banned” in Australia
Okay Australians bad news again, an other game has banned in Australia “State of Decay” just in tow days after Saint Row IV has banned because of an “Alien anal probe” .
The Australian Classification Board refused the game for depiction of drug use, said executive producer Jeff Strain on the official forums.
Undead Labs is working with Microsoft to come up with options, including changing names of certain medications in the game to comply with ratings requirements.
Jeff Strain the executive producer said:
I have bad news to share: State of Decay has been refused classification by the Australian Classification Board (ACB). We’ve run afoul of certain prohibitions regarding the depiction of drug use. We’re working with Microsoft to come up with options, including changing names of certain medications in the game to comply with ratings requirements. Whatever our path forward, it’s going to take a bit.
I know this is frustrating — believe me, we’re frustrated too — but each country has the right to set its own rules about content, and it’s our responsibility to comply with them. Rest assured we’ll do everything we can to find a way to get the game into your hands. Stay tuned.
