Deep Silver has confirmed that Saints Row 4 will be available in an edited form in Australia, following the original version being denied classification in the country.
A modified version of the game has been granted a MA15+ rating after an “optional” mission, which involves the use of “virtual alien narcotics,” was cut from the game. “To achieve this rating one loyalty mission featuring the character Shaundi has been removed,” the publisher wrote. “This mission has been widely reported on and contains the use of alien narcotics to obtain certain superpowers.
“The mission represents approximately 20 minutes of gameplay out of the hours available to purchasers.”
The publisher has insisted that this removed mission will have “no negative impact on the story.”
