DayZ Going Into Rehab Over Aussie Ban

Following the news that DayZ is now Refused Classification in Australia because of the game's inclusion of marijuana, Kotaku Australia has word Bohemia Interactive is removing the drug from all versions of the game. This is so that DayZ can again be sold down under, and so that Aussie players can still play jointly with gamers from the rest of the world. Here's word:

Bohemia Interactive confirmed to Kotaku Australia late Monday evening that DayZ would be getting modified globally to comply with the Classification Board's requirements. Bohemia could have opted to exclude Australians from DayZ's next major release to give themselves time to work out another solution, but in an email the studio explained that they did not want Aussie gamers to be separated from the rest of the world.

"We donít want to separate Australian players from the rest of the world, since many people play cross-region," the studio said. "We love that DayZ is the place to meet with friends and experience the game without dramatic regional lag. We donít want to change that."

"At the moment, we are editing the global version of DayZ so it will fit into the Boardís requirements. The key objective is to keep the gameplay as authentic as it was, so players are not affected by this change."

Australia must have some really easily impressionable people living there.

Not that at all, and the US and many other countries could stand to do the same. Shits out of control. And what were they thinking putting in marijuana? How stupid was that!

This site has zero ability to detect humor.

I'm hoping that this is a joke too...

Case in point.

Hey, with some people on here, I have to question everything that doesn't include a /s marker...lol

So what cyber-magic are you using that causes someone from Australia and someone from the US playing together to not lag compared to each other? Confused

Good, I stoped playing DayZ when I saw the ground becoming littered with the used syringes of dopers who couldn't play the game without shooting up virtual tokes of that fucking Jazz Cabbage.

All performance enhancing drugs should be banned in games.

Also it is hard to ignore the mounting evidence simulated drug use in murder simulators is spilling over into the real world in the form of real violence.

The opioid epidemic was caused by video game drug use. Obviously.
