Kotaku.com are reporting that Rebellion‚Äôs latest Alien vs Predator is the latest game to receive the honor of being banned in Australia. ‚ÄúWhat will Rebellion do to water it down and will it be in our version?‚ÄĚ you might ask.
The answer is nothing.
Rebellion issued the following statement in response to the banning.
"Rebellion is disappointed that its upcoming title Aliens vs. Predator has been banned in Australia. However, as we understand the law in that country the authorities had no choice as we agree strongly that our game is not suitable for game players who are not adults."
"The content of AvP is based on some of the most innovative and iconic horror movies, and as such we wanted to create a title that was true to the source material,‚ÄĚ
In other words, movies did it first.
‚ÄĚIt is for adults, and it is bloody and frightening, that was our intent. We will not be releasing a sanitised or cut down version for territories where adults are not considered by their governments to be able to make their own entertainment choices."
So unless Aussie gamers stage nationwide protests to change the OLFC‚Äôs mind/get the legislation for game ratings updated, or Rebellion changes their mind ‚Äď the Australians will have to go without.
