Aliens vs. Predator ban reversed

In an interesting turn of events, Sega Australia has confirmed that the Australian Classification Review Board has reversed their original decision to refuse the game classification and has given the game a MA15+ rating.

Sega Australia’s Managing Director, Darren Macbeth said, “It is with great pleasure that we announce the success of our appeal. We are particularly proud that the game will be released in its original entirety, with no content altered or removed whatsoever.”

“This is a big win for Australian gamers. We applaud the Classification Review Board on making a decision that clearly considers the context of the game, and is in line with the modern expectations of reasonable Australians,” added Macbeth

Sega said the game and its many special additions will announce a local release date sometime in the near future.

This comes as good news for any Australian gamers who’d thought they would miss out on the game.
