Confirmed: Fallout 3 refused classification in Australia


Bethesda's Fallout 3 has been refused classification by the Australian OFLC.

Dated July 4, the RC rating comes just four days before Bethesda announced that the game would feature slavery, drugs and addiction.

The Australian classification rules are as follows:

There are six classification categories for films (G, PG, M, MA 15+, R 18+, X 18+) and four classification categories for computer games (G, PG, M and MA 15+). The R 18+ and X 18+ categories do not apply to computer games in Australia. Films and computer games can also be classified RC (refused classification). RC films and computer games cannot be legally sold or distributed in Australia.

We're asking Bethseda for a comment right now.
