Saints Row IV finally granted Australian release

An edited version of Saint’s Row IV has been passed by the Classification Board at the third time of asking

"Deep Silver and AIE are pleased to report that the Australian Classification Board has now approved Saints Row IV for sale," a statement from Deep Silver said. "They have granted the game an MA15+ rating. To achieve this rating one loyalty mission featuring the character Shaundi has been removed. This mission has been widely reported on, and contains the use of alien narcotics to obtain certain superpowers.

"This mission represents approximately 20 minutes of gameplay out of the hours available to purchasers.

"The removal of this mission has 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. The rectifier weapon will be available as part of a DLC package as originally intended. Deep Silver stands by this decision and thanks the Australian Classification Board for their assistance with this matter."

The game had previously failed two attempts at gaining classification.
