Valve may re-issue Left 4 Dead 2 as R18+
blog Remember how US gaming giant Valve Software had to cut all the gore, blood splatter, dismemberment, corpses, burning and riot cop zombies out of its highly popular online cooperative zombie shooter game Left 4 Dead 2, when it was released in Australia a few years ago? Yeah. Here’s a heads up: Zombie games without gore just ain’t as much fun. Well, thanks to the new laws allowing R18+ video games to be sold in Australia, Valve is strongly investigating re-releasing the game locally in its original gory form. Valve staffer ‘chetf’ writes on the company’s forum earlier this month:
“No need to flood us with emails. We have been exploring the options here and what we can legally do. We will have more information on this when we understand the issues fully and how we are moving forward but don’t worry any cost associated with it doesn’t worry us, this is something we want to do.”
This is fantastic news. Now raise your head up to the picture at the top of this screen and think about how wonderful Valve co-founder Gabe Newell is. Praise the Gaben. Look at that benevolent expression. All good things come from the Gaben. Even feel free to drop him an email personally at email@example.com and let him know how great a move you think a R18+ version of Left 4 Dead 2 would be for Australia. Who knows — he may even respond, in his trademark fashion. All praise to the Gaben. Bless.
