Saints Row 4 has been rated MA15+ for the Australian market, according to the Australian Classification Board.
This version has been modified and an optional mission has been removed.
“Deep Silver and AIE are pleased to report that the Australian Classification Board has now approved Saints Row IV for sale. They have granted the game an MA15+ rating. To achieve this rating one loyalty mission featuring the character Shaundi has been removed. This mission has been widely reported on and contains the use of alien narcotics to obtain certain superpowers,” publisher Deep Silver said.
“This mission represents approximately 20 minutes of gameplay out of the hours available to purchasers.
“The removal of this mission has no negative impact on the story or the superpowers and will not detract from the enjoyment players will get from their Saints Row IV experience. The rectifier weapon will be available as part of a DLC package as originally intended. Deep Silver stands by this decision and thanks the Australian Classification Board for their assistance with this matter.”
The game was denied classification twice by the CRB, and it’s nice to see Australians not missing out on what seems to be an incredibly fun game.
GTA 5 has also been classified by the CRB but it has been given a different rating.
The game will be released in Australia on August 22nd.
