"Decapitation, dismemberment" and more removed from L4D2 for Oz release


While news of Left 4 Dead clearing OFLC regulations this morning will bring relief to Down-Under gamers, it looks as though large cuts have been made to the approved version.

According to, the ratings board has confirmed that "the game no longer contains depictions of decapitation, dismemberment, wound detail or piles of dead bodies lying about the environment.

“No wound detail is shown and the implicitly dead bodies and blood splatter disappear as they touch the ground.”

Melee weapons made the cut. EA's quoted in that article as saying it still hopes the full version will be classified. Hate to be the voice of doom, but it doesn't look like it, does it?

Left 4 Dead 2 was originally refused classification in Australia last month.

Thanks, Filofax.
