Saints Row IV Approved for Australia With Slightly Modified Content
Essentially no more drugged out Shaundi.
Saints Row IV will be making it to Australian shores after all, as Deep Silver has announced that the Australian Classification Board has approved a slightly modified version of the game for sale. The game is now rated as MA15+, following the removal of a loyalty mission with Shaundi that somehow involved alien drugs.
The mission, which meant about 20 minutes of game time, is now gone. Oddly enough, the anal probe weapon DLC will still be available in Australia. Regardless, the game will apparent suffer “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” with the removal of the loyalty mission.
“Deep Silver stands by this decision and thanks the Australian Classification Board for their assistance with this matter,” the publisher stated. Saints Row IV will be releasing on August 20th in North America and August 23rd in Europe for Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3.
