State of Decay Also RC in Oz - SR4 Explanation

A post on the Undead Labs forums have word that State of Decay is being refused classification by the Australian ratings board, following shortly after news that Saints Row IV was refused classification under the country's rating system, which was recently revised to include an adult R18+ rating. As a result, while the games will be legal to own in Australia, they cannot be publicly sold there. The post explains: "We've run afoul of certain prohibitions regarding the depiction of drug use. We're working with Microsoft to come up with options, including changing names of certain medications in the game to comply with ratings requirements. Whatever our path forward, it's going to take a bit." Thanks Player Attack, where, on a related note, they have a follow-up on the Saints Row IV situation, saying the problem with the game is the inclusion of an "alien anal probe." In spite of this being implied and blurred, apparently there's a fear of copycat crimes once alien anal probes are actually invented.
