Australia says no to Syndicate

Bad news for our friends down under; Starbreeze’s Syndicate reboot has been refused classification by the Australian Classification Board.

In short, that means the game is banned until publisher EA either wins an appeal for classification or edits the games content itself to accommodate the Board.

Early previews noted that Syndicate would let players make their enemies shoot themselves among other things. This may have been a reason for refusal. It’s a shame to see Australia still having these problems.
