Bethesda: Fallout 3 versions in UK, Aussie and US are the same

Dustin Burg

Previously, Bethesda made it known that Fallout 3 was getting heat from various game ratings boards around the globe and just revealed that they've removed a drug reference in all versions. A change across the board that'll make the UK, Australia and U.S. versions all the same.

Bethesda's Pete Hines confirmed that they removed the real-world drug Morphine from Fallout 3 due to ratings board issues, opting to replace it with the not so real-world drug called "Med-X". Though, in a statement from Hines to Joystiq, he makes it clear that the drug reference was the only change made to the UK, Australia and US versions mentioning that Bethesda hasn't toned down the violence or bloody dismemberment effects. Just no morphine, because drugs are bad, kids, drugs are bad.
