Low Violence Edition
Given that Australia has FINALLY added an R18+ rating for video games, is Valve planning on fixing the low violence edition of Left 4 Dead 2?

I know it's laughably easy to fix on the client end, but it would be a great way to close an ugly chapter in Australian gaming history.

/slaps for asking the question thats been asked a bajillion times on this forum.

Anyway answer is valve needs to get it re-rated by the Australian rating board or whatever before they can release it there. Would also probably have to be a dlc or something since it would be a different game (They can make it a free dlc though)

it wouldnt be dlc it would just be an update.

At the start of the year, Valve said they intended to do this and that cost was not an issue.

I'd be interested to know what's holding them up.

they have to have the game re-reviewed by the people who rate them in australia etc, etc.

But have they actually submitted it for re-review? I know that 'Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition' has been successfully rereviewed and classified as R18+. That happened quite some time ago.

I would guess that if Valve was doing the same things at the same time, L4D2 would have been reclassified by now. So presumably there is something else holding them up.

The reason I said it might need to be DLC is because it would be a new game more or less, dunno if you're allowed to force a update that changes the rating higher. (I'm just guessing though, I don't know if this has been done before)

You are stuck with the Aussie version bud! Way around it is to get a fresh copy gifted from the US (this will give you full gore) and start a new steam account! The heinous ♥♥♥♥♥ we call our prime minister doesn`t give a flying ♥♥♥♥ about reversing this for us even though its been passed by law to have an 18+ rating! Hope this helps :D

I really don't think it's the prime minister's job to set the up the R18+ version of L4D2 on Steam. Your abuse is unwarrented and unhelpful.

yes they have said they will send it in for re-review once they look at the laws that will effect it and see if there is a decent enough chance for it too be a positive review, they also said that money is no problem.
