Syndicate Reboot Effectively Banned in Australia
The Australian Classification Board has refused classification on Starbreeze’s upcoming Syndicate reboot. With the game listed RC on the Classification Board’s website, only a successful appeal will prevent this game from being effectively banned in the land down under.
Any game that rates above “MA 15+” is refused classification — meaning games deemed not suitable for people under the age of 15 don’t pass muster. This can only be a secret government plot to make games in Australia such a rare commodity that its people will understand why games in Australia are overpriced relative to elsewhere in the world.
