AU SoF: Payback Refused Classification

Kotaku Australia reports that Soldier of Fortune Payback has been refused classification by the Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC), though Activision claims this is unrelated to the release date setback the game has suffered in Australia that will not impact other territories. This means the game will have to be reworked to be sold down under, but also should reassure fans of the series that Payback contains the graphic violent content for which earlier installments in the mercenary shooter series were notorious.
