Last month we reported that Fallout 3 would be censored in Australia to remove drug use in the game. Turns out we were wrong. Bethesda clarified the issue by explaining that the Aussie version of the game is going to be the same as everyone else's versions of the post-apocalyptic RPG. What was removed, according to Bethesda vice president of PR and marketing Peter Hines was use of real-world prescription drugs in Fallout 3.
“We want to make sure folks understand that the Australian version of Fallout 3 is identical to both the UK and North American versions in every way, on every platform," Hines said.
“An issue was raised concerning references to real world, proscribed drugs in the game, and we subsequently removed those references and replaced them with fictional names. To avoid confusion among people in different territories, we decided to make those substitutions in all versions of the game, in all territories.”
