A modified version of Blizzard’s StarCraft II has apparently made its way through Korea’s Games Rating Board (GRB) and earned a rating for gamers aged 12 and up.
This follows an earlier version of the game being branded with an adults only, or over 18, rating last month. 1UP, via a Team Liquid forum translation, indicates that Blizzard changed the color of in-game blood to black, removed vulgar language and exorcised smoking references in the game in order to achieve the lower age rating.
Blizzard may also consider releasing a separate version of StarCraft II that is aimed for adults only.
The game earned a “T” (Teen) rating from the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).
