Risen RPG Refused Classification

No Comment 16 Views

Role-playing game Risen from Gothic developer Piranha Bytes has been refused classification in Australia.

The Classification Board listing for Risen, a third-person RPG for PC and Xbox 360, was updated late yesterday with an RC rating.

A spokesperson for Risen’s Australian distributor Madman Interactive has told us that the Classification Board felt that the game contained "sexual activity and drug use related to incentives or rewards."

Distributor Madman are considering all their options but have yet to decide whether they will appeal the decision or seek to edit the game to suit an MA15+ rating.

In the US, Risen, which is due for release this autumn, has yet to receive a classification with the ESRB saying it’s still pending.

The plot of the game will have the protagonist shipwrecked after a storm on Faranga, an island home to an active volcano. Ancient temple ruins have recently risen from the ground, and bizarre creatures infest the island. Added to the situation, the Inquisition forbids anyone to exit the city of the island.
