Speaking to Edge, Bethesda’s Peter Hines has confirmed that the version of Fallout 3 censored to pass for release in Australia will be the version that ships worldwide.

“We want to make sure folks understand that the Australian version of Fallout 3 is identical to both the UK and North American versions in every way, on every platform,” he said.

“An issue was raised concerning references to real world, proscribed drugs in the game, and we subsequently removed those references and replaced them with fictional names.

“To avoid confusion among people in different territories, we decided to make those substitutions in all versions of the game, in all territories.”
