Just one day after Saints Row IV became the first game to be refused classification after the R18+ laws passed, the Classification Board has reportedly followed it up by giving the same treatment to State of Decay.

State of Decay is a "zombie-survival open-world game" created by Undead Labs for the Xbox 360 and PC.

Kotaku has, once again, received a copy of the Classification Board's report regarding its decision. The report concludes: "in the board's opinion, the game enables the player's character to self-administer proscribed drugs which aid in gameplay progression. This game therefore contains drug use related to incentives or rewards, and should be refused classification."
