Fallout 3 : censorship at its best

From the makers of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Game of The Year, 2006) is coming Fallout 3, based on similar but improved mechanics. Bethesda, the developer, decided to change some of the game’s content after its reception at the australian government. Not even available for sale, Fallout 3 is already a polemic. This post-apocalyptic game where the goal is to naviguate a world populated with mutants and other dangers must change its contents before being officially released October 28 2008 for PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

After a refusal of classification in Australia, developer Bethesda decided to change some of the script from its product. Here’s the problem : Fallout 3 rewards the player for using morphine, which was a bit too much for our Aussies friends. These mentions have been severly modified in the final script, and the game finally got a classification equivalent of a Mature rating here. The changes will affect all territories.
