BBFC passes GTA: IV for 18-rated release
Yesterday, the BBFC passed GTA: IV for release.
On the official BBFC website, the Grand Theft Auto: IV page was updated and it clearly states 'This work has passed with no cuts'.
The game has been handed an 18 certificate as expected and was, as with most games, passed by clearing the seperate component parts - those being the gameplay footage and the cut scenes.
The BBFC page states the cut-scenes run to a length of 7 hours and 43 minutes, and they cleared over five and a half hours of gameplay footage in the process. We think it is safe to assert that the single-player experience in GTA: IV is going to take around 13-20 hours to complete, if you add together the gameplay, cut-scenes and a good amount of time for each mission.
All of this bodes well for the anticipated release on 29th April.
