Alien Vs. Predator to be re-evaluated
Australia’s Classification Review Board will meet again to reconsider the classification (or lack there of) for Aliens vs. Predator. Sega asked for the reconsideration. On Dec. 3 the board refused to classify the game because of the violence and gore in the game. The game developer, Rebellion, has said it will not be modifying the title. What could this mean for the game? Either the ruling will stay in place or the review board will have a change of heart.
“The Review Board has invited applications to be considered an “interested party” to the review, but reminds that this review and its reconsideration can only be within the scope of Australia’s existing classification regulations. I.e., no one’s being invited to complain about creating an R18+ rating category for games, as such an option is for lawmakers, not the review board, to implement.” [Source]
