We all know that both Austria and Germany have a big problem when it comes to video games. A lot of games were restriced, and a lot more were cut down to pieces to hid every detail that upset the government.
Volition’s latest game, Saints Row IV got this treatment aswell. The version that will be made available for Australia will lack a side-mission that apparently was offending for them.
More than that, this version of the game will not be compatible with other versions sold worldwide in co-op mode.
“Due to the changes we were forced to make, this version is different than the version rated by rating boards like the ESRB, USK, and PEGI, which is why it will be incompatible with those versions in co-op,” Volition stated.
While this mission will not be available for them, the developers ensures potential buyers that the story will not be affected and the mission took only 20 minutes to complete out of several hours of gameplay in Saints Row IV.
