Madworld given 15+ in Australia

Australia’s ever-consistent ratings board, the OFLC, has rated hyper-violent Platinum game Madworld as 15+.

The game has already been passed as an 18 by the BBFC in the UK.

Madworld features some of the most hilariously brutal violence ever seen in a game, which clearly isn’t as offensive to our Australian cousins as the inclusion of a drug pipe in an RPG.

The maximum rating a game can receive in Australia is 15+, so anything deemed unsuitable for school children Down Under gets effectively banned.

Madworld ships in March.
