Illustration for article titled Risen Banned In Australia, Sexual Activity And Drug Use Cited

Third person role-playing-game Risen from German developer Piranha Bytes has been refused classification in Australia.

No reasons were initially given why the game has been banned Down Under. Kotaku Australia contacted Risen's Australian distributor Madman Interactive and were told that the country's Classification Board felt the game contained "sexual activity and drug use related to incentives or rewards."

Madman Interactive has yet to decide whether it will appeal this decision or release an edited version for a 15-years-old-and-up rating.
