Saints Row 4 was given classification for the Australian market recently, and while this is great news, there has been a few modifications to the version.
It has been revealed that Australian players will be unable to co-op with players from other region due to the changes that were made to get the said classification in the country.
Here’s what the publisher Deep Silver revealed:
While we are very proud of all our different missions, we do feel that Saints Row IV on the whole remains largely the same without this single optional mission, and we also feel that you deserve to know what you are getting in Australia. Due to the changes we were forced to make, this version is different than the version rated by rating boards like the ESRB, USK, and PEGI, which is why it will be incompatible with those versions in co-op.
As for the “Rectifier” weapon that was mentioned as an “alien anal probe” weapon recently — it launches enemies into the sky — this is and always has been a bonus weapon for the Season Pass. At this point in time we are still awaiting details on whether we can include it in the Season Pass in Australia or not.
Other than this, there’s no other changes to the game. Saints Row 4 comes out on August 22nd in Australia.
