The Walking Dead won’t rise in Australia/New Zealand
Australian fans of The Walking Dead are in for a bit of a disappointment today. The game based on the series of graphic novels will not be releasing in either Australia or New Zealand. It is unclear if the OFLC rejected the game or if developer Telltale Games saw the writing on the wall and didn’t attempt to release it in that territory at all. The Walking Dead received a Mature rating in America so there is no doubt that it contains some intense zombie related scenarios. There is a long history of Australia refusing to release games featuring “mature content”. XBLA has run afoul of this before with Wolfenstein 3D and others. Ultimately this is a shame for both gamers and the developers of what is looking to be a solid game. Stay tuned for our review very soon.
