Saints Row IV banned in Australia because of ‘Alien Anal Probe’ weapon

saints row iv box art 259x300 Saints Row IV banned in Australia because of Alien Anal Probe weaponThe Australian classification board have confirmed that Saints Row IV was banned in Australia because of a weapon called the Alien Anal Probe.

The weapon is apparently half sword and half dildo which you enter into the rear-end of your enemies. The weapon will allow you to probe either enemies or civilians, then fire them into the air. Upon using the weapon the victims lower regions become pixilated, which apparently highlights the face they have a probe up their bum.

The statement from the classification board goes on to say: “The game contains an optional mission which involves the player obtaining and smoking drugs referred to as “alien narcotics”. Smoking the “alien narcotics” equips the player with “superpowers” which increase their in-game abilities allowing them to progress through the mission more easily.”

Volition have also confirmed they will be reworking the game so that it can be released in Australian markets, “Deep Silver can confirm that Saints Row IV was denied an age classification in Australia. Volition, the developer, are reworking some of the code to create a version of the game for this territory by removing the content which could cause offence without reducing the outlandish gameplay that Saints Row fans know and love. Saints Row IV has been awarded PEGI 18 and ESRB M ratings where fans can enjoy their time in Steelport as originally intended.”

So sorry Australia, no anal probing for you!
