Australian Board To Take Another Look At Saints Row 4

We reported last month that the Australian Classification Board had refused classification for the game Saints Row IV, which banned it in the country. The board has announced that they have received an application to review the classification of the game.

On July 29th the board will take another looks at the game so see if the modifications made to it are sufficient to give it a classification that will allow it to be sold in Australia. On their web site they simply state;

The Classification Review Board has received an application to review the classification of the computer game Saints Row IV.

Saints Row IV was Refused Classification by the Classification Board on 19 June 2013.

The Classification Review Board will meet on 29 July 2013 to consider the application.

The game was originally refused classification due to containing, "interactive, visual depictions of implied sexual violence which was not justified by content, " and also, "elements of illicit or proscribed drug use related to incentive and awards." Since that time a "low violence" version of the game has been made available on Steam.
