It was supposed to be cancelled. All mentions of the game were removed from publisher Deep Silver’s website. But now Ride to Hell, a game that explores biker culture in the late 1960s, has just received an R18+ classification and, according to the local Australian distributors, is set for release later this year on PC, 360 and PS3.
Ride to Hell follows one man as he returns from Vietnam to find America in cultural upheaval. It features a non-linear open world game with 95 square kilometres of space to explore and is said to feature “[h]igh impact sexual references and drug references”, resulting in the game receiving an adult classification.
Strangely some sites reported that Ride to Hell had been cancelled, but we have confirmed locally that the classification is legitimate and Ride to Hell will be released here in Australia. There is no fixed date as of yet, but it should be released at some point in 2013.
