Left 4 Dead 2 gets an R18+ Australian classification in its original form




Five years after it was first released in Australia -- with less gore and zombies that de-materialised after they were dispatched (boo!) -- Left 4 Dead 2 is finally headed to the country in its unedited form.

Left 4 Dead 2 has been resubmitted to the Australian Classification Board, earning the R18+ rating that didn't exist back in 2009.

As you'd expect, the game has been flagged with strong impact themes, high impact violence and mild impact language.

Do you have a hankering for Left 4 Dead 2 in its original form, or have you already played this version via alternate means?

Thanks for the heads up, Kotaku.

    Ahhh, good old alternate means.
    I’m excited to have my Steam copy be R18+, the disappearing zombies make it so lame.
