Which will only affect the R18+ rating, and change the classification description by omitting 'threat of sexual violence' to 'high impact violence, online interactivity'. Not a censorship case my any stretch it seems that Activision re-submitted the game for re-classification last week, probably as a way to remove the reference to sexual violence that would appear on every box.

So, what does this mean in terms of changes. Well as per the classification board the scene was originally presented as per blow. Spoilers, obviously.

In one section of the game, the player controls Rosseau, a female spy, as she infiltrates a German building. While inside, she witnesses a woman as she is dragged by a Nazi soldier into a closet, against her will, screaming, "You're all pigs!"

Rosseau opes the closet door, as the soldier says, "Leave. This is none of your business." The player is then given the option to kill the soldier or leave.
If the player chooses to leave, the player closes the door, as the soldier is heard unziping his fly and viewed advancing towards the woman. She screams, "Ah! Get away from me!" as Rosseau leaves.

It is implied that the soldier is going to sexually assault the woman, but at no time is the assault depicted.


The modified version alters the woman's clothing and removes the unzipping sound.

Censorship and re-writing history like rape as a weapon of war never occurred. OFLC are a bunch of lefty ostriches.

Nah wasn't censorship, was Activision's way to remove that rating descriptor. Anything related to sexual violence is policy for the ratings peeps to highlight on the label

So they are changing that scene so they don't have to have sexual violence on the box? Seems kinda silly to me.
