Australia has always been known for having one of the more strict review boards when it comes to censorship, especially in relation to games. Luckily back in the beginning of 2013 the Australian Classification Board released an update to their Guidelines for the Classification of Computer Games which has since seen more games getting a passing rating.

Even games that would normally have been banned were given the green light after simple revisions. Oddly enough, it seems that Valve had recently resubmitted Left 4 Dead 2 for review and have now gotten the clear to release the game in all its uncensored glory.

Originally released back in 2010 Valve was force to release a censored version of Left 4 Dead 2, which barely scraped by with an M15+ rating. This version however was met with negative reviews by many. But now fans can play the original, uncensored version of the game which has garnered an R18+ rating in Australia.

Confirmed via Kotaku Australia, Doug Lombardi from Valve has issued a statement letting gamers know that those who previously purchased the 2010 version of the game will soon be able to enjoy the newly uncensored release:

“We are delighted that the full version of Left 4 Dead 2 will be available to fans age 18+ in Australia,” he said. “We are making plans to deliver that version to those who have already purchased the game. We will announce more details on that soon.”
