Outlast 2 Australian Rating Nearly Refused
Early this March, Outlast 2 Australian rating was almost denied a classification. It was said from a report by Kotaku that it is because of the game’s “implied sexual violence” that the Australian Government’s Classification Board denied the game’s rating. But Red Barrels was able to resubmit the game to the board and receive a different result.
The resubmission resulted in an R18+ rating from the Classification Board. The official statement is given below:
“The original submission of Outlast 2 sent to the Australian Classification Branch contained the final game code and a video file for reference taken from an alpha version of the game. This video file should not have been sent along with the game code, as its content was not representative of the game.”
“In the second submission, the same game code was submitted, with a video file reflecting the final content. The game was then approved for the release with an R18+ rating. There will only be one version of Outlast 2 available worldwide. These will be the final comments on this release.”
The date of approval for the game’s classification is March 21st. It has a rating of R18+ with the warnings of “high-impact horror themes, violence, blood, gore, and sex.
Scheduled Outlast 2 release is on April 25, 2017, available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
