AUSTRALIA: Left 4 Dead 2 ban lifted

Electronic Arts’ upcoming Left 4 Dead 2 has been classified for release in Australia.

The game was banned in the territory last month for its violent content, but the Australian Classification Board’s website now shows it has been given the maximum rating of MA 15+.

A Valve spokesperson told Kotaku that the build of Left 4 Dead 2 granted classification for the region was an “adjusted version”. He added that the developer is hoping the standard Left 4 Dead 2 could be cleared for release before the game is due to launch.

“We are still awaiting the decision on the rest of world/standard version and remain optimistic about being able to ship this version in November,” he said.

“However, we are now able to ship a version of Left 4 Dead 2 in Australia. So the question is no longer if Left 4 Dead 2 ships there, but which version.”
