Fallout 3 banned in Australia

Bethesda’s forthcoming post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 3 has been refused rating by Australia’s Office of Film and Literature Classification, according to reports from VG247.com

The news comes just days after Bethesda revealed a number of controversial themes included in the highly anticipated title, such as slavery, drugs and addiction.

As mentioned previously on PSU, Australia does not permit the sale and distribution of any title beyond that of an MA 15+ rating in the territory, with Fallout 3 joining a host of games that have been refused rating, the most recent case being that of horror FPS, Shellshock: Blood Trail.

Fallout 3 is still on track for release in North America on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 later this year.

Stay tuned.
