The Order: 1886 banned in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait

Ready at Dawn’s PS4-exclusive The Order: 1886 has been banned in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, Sony’s Middle Eastern arm has announced.

As a result, the PlayStation 4-exclusive action-adventure title won’t be able to purchase in these two Middle-Eastern countries. 

This isn’t the first major game to be banned in Saudi Arabia either; Grand Theft Auto V from Rockstar Games is also unavailable in the country upon its release in 2013.

Interestingly, NetherRealm Studios’ Injustice: Gods Among Us was banned in the United Arab Emirates due to the use of the word ‘God’ in the title. Even after the game was resubmitted as Injustice: The Mighty Among Us, the title was still refused to be sold in the region as the word ‘God’ can still be found within the game itself.
