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."

About to give up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
