Australia's long nation nightmare of maybe not being able to play Left 4 Dead 2 may soon be over, as the government's media ratings board has apparently issued the zombie shooter a rating of MA-15+.
That would essentially mean an end to the "ban" on Valve's PC and Xbox 360 sequel and translate into "good news" for our Survivor friends down under.
No word yet on whether Valve's appeal was successful and/or if the company had to submit the edited version of the game for the Australian release.
Kotaku AU Note: Valve submitted an edited version of Left 4 Dead 2 which has now received an MA15+ rating. Meanwhile they are also appealing the original decision and still hope to release the unedited version. Gabe Newell told Kotaku AU yesterday that the edited version was simply a "back-up plan" in case the appeal failed.
We'd like to simply think that Gabe Newell just got down there a little early and put some Aussie's in a headlock. Or that Australian man's man Saxton Hale called in a favour.
Left 4 Dead 2 [OFLC - thanks, Robert!]
