Valve appeals Australian L4D2 ban

Australia’s decision to deny Left 4 Dead 2 classification was appealed by Valve yesterday, a note sent over by Valve today informs us. While other countries from Germany to Korea have given the zombie killing sim an 18+ or an equivalent Mature rating, the Australian Ratings Board denied to classify L4D2 on September 19th on the grounds of it containing “high impact violence” and for portraying “living humans with a rabies-like virus” — news that saddened Valve and made EA question the Australian ratings system.

We’ll keep you updated on how much effect Valve’s appeal will have.
