It’s been a messy saga over the last few weeks for Valve. Their highly anticipated sequel Left 4 Dead 2 was banned in Australia thanks to a truly antiquated rating system, while the South Australian Attorney-general jumped on the Valve-hating bandwagon.
Well, now it seems that L4D2 has indeed received an Australian rating. Read on to find out what it is.
[Update]: With all of the rumours swirling around the blogosphere, Gamer Limit contacted Valve Software directly regarding the submitted version and recieved a reply from Valve’s Doug Lombardi.
Edited. Waiting for word on the appeal of the standard version. So, the game will ship in Austalia the question now is which version.

The Australian Classification Database has just released information that Left 4 Dead 2 has been slapped with an MA15+ rating for “strong bloody violence”.
It is good to see that at least some progress is being made in the campaign for its release.
