Fallout 3 refused classification in Australia

OFLC bans Bethesda title from sale in the region

Bethesda's forthcoming Fallout 3 has been refused classification in Australia.

An RC rating by the Office of Film and Literature Classification effectively means the game is banned from sale in the region.

Many publishers have fallen foul of the strict classification system in Australia which does not grant games a rating above 15+, but allows movies to receive 18+ ratings.

Most recently, D3P's Dark Sector was finally cleared for sale in the region after receiving a series of cuts to content.

Fallout 3 is the latest title from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion team Bethesda, due for release this autumn.

GamesIndustry.biz has contacted Bethesda for comment.
