    A lot of content was, somewhat infamously, left on the cutting room floor for Left 4 Dead 2's original Australian release. The gore was significantly reduced, bodies disappeared almost instantly, etc., making for an experience that was down underwhelming.

    But not to worry, Aussie fans, because you're getting the full version... five years after the fact.

    If we want to put on our conspiracy hats for a second here, there's strong cicumstantial evidence suggesting that Valve was working on a new version of Left 4 Dead 2 for its Source 2 engine, whenever that gets released. A move like this might be another hint that the rerelease is on the way. Of course, Valve has yet to really confirm anything on the matter yet, so for now we just have to twiddle our thumbs.

    So yeah. Congrats, Australians, you get a five year old game in all its gory glory. On the bright side, though, at least it's fresher than vegemite.

    Unfortunately I find it very unlikely that people who bought the game previously in Australia are going to benefit from this. They're most likely going to be stuck with their censored versions unless they ask Steam support to remove their censored copy and then buy and register a new uncensored copy for themself.

    Sir, next time you post an article, I along with all the other Australians who patronise this forum would thank you for not insulting our cultural delicacies!

    :lol:

    And here I am, 5 years later, still playing this game on steam.

    Because for some reason, this game is one of the funnest online games I've ever played.

    Hands down.
