Australias’s Office Of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC) has reclassified Bethesda’s Fallout 3, clearing it for release. The game will now be assigned the highest age rating for games in Australia, MA-15, advising consumers that it features strong violence, drug references and coarse language.As welast month, The OFLC originally refused to give Fallout 3 a rating on the basis that the game’s ‘chems’ system was judged to advocate drug use.
