Fallout 3 Now Edited Worldwide

Posted by shaun832 on September 10, 2008

When Fallout 3 ran through the Australian Classification Board the first time, it got Refused Classification. Since there is no R18+ rating for games in Australia, this meant that the game got banned. Later on, Bethesda Softworks edited Fallout 3 slightly and ran it through the Classification Board again. This time it got an MA15+ rating and was unbanned.

There was only one change to the game. All references to real world drugs in Fallout 3 (which happens a lot) was removed and the names of the drugs were changed to names that don’t exist.

Now this edited version is being released worldwide (more info in the article link below), replacing all the other versions that have the word ‘Morphine’ in it.

I find this quite funny. I never actually thought the Australia Classification Board could tick people of worldwide but here’s proof. Now the world will know what it is like to be a gamer in Australia!
