@DSVolition So, Australians are getting the censored editions no matter where we purchase the game from? Yes or no.— Addie Naylor (@RadeyLady) August 18, 2013
After yet another date pushback on the Australian release of Saints Row 4, the rumour mill is in overdrive. Media outlets are reporting that Volition, Deep Silver or Steam (Valve) have enabled region-locking on digitally downloaded copies of Saints Row.
This could mean that if you try to avoid the Australian ‘low-violence’ version of the game, Steam will convert your full-game key to an Australian key.
Not only does this mean you’ll get the MA15+ version of the game, you could lose the ability to play with your non-Australian friends.
I’ve contacted Volition’s social media team with a support ticket to write in the morning. I’ll update you as soon as I know anything.
