L4D 2 Banned In Australia: Left for Dead

Update:Because Australia has no R18+classification for games, Left 4 Dead 2 looks set to be banned in its current form.  Who says Aussies are the backward nation. RC classification simply means  Refused Classification.

The maximum Computer and Video game OFLC rating of MA15+ fails us gamers once again.

Left 4 Dead 2 has been refused classification in Australia in a decision announced by the Classification Board this morning.

UPDATE: An EA spokesperson has told us they “are still working through the submission process with OFLC and want to explore all opportunities before making any comment.


This Kotaku post outlines the issue and you can find the Steam forum discussion on it here.

Update via IGN: www.news.com.au has a copy of the board report. "High in Impact" is the reason given for the banning.
