Australian Saints Row 4 Has No Coop And Missing Missions

About a month ago we revealed to you that the upcoming game title Saints Row 4 had been banned in Australia for issues with in-game sexual violence and illicit drug consumption. Developers Volition said that they would do their best to alter the game to get around the ban and get it reclassified as fit for distribution to the Australian public. However, nearly 6 weeks later and it appears Volition have given up trying to get the game to work with Australian censorship laws.

The Australian version of Saints Row 4 will be cut down to exclude certain missions that break Australian regulations and this also means international co-op has to be disabled in the Australian version, as to avoid playing prohibited missions with non-Australian gamers.

“While we are very proud of all our different missions, we do feel that Saints Row IV on the whole remains largely the same without this single optional mission, and we also feel that you deserve to know what you are getting in Australia.” Said the Saints Row 4 Facebook page.

Most Australian gamers believe that they can import the international versions of the new Saints Row 4 game to get around the ban, or use a VPN/Proxy service to digitally download the game via an Online service such as Steam. That said it is still quite sad to see legislation banning games, it is a mild form of censorship for what the public should and shouldn’t be allowed to see.

    Ugh, we get an R18+ rating for these types of games, they still get banned. Typical Australia.
