Dennaton Games' highly-anticipated top-down ultra-violent sequel Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number has finally been given a solid release date of March 10th, though the game is sadly still banned here in Australia.

Back in January our Australian Classification Board ruled that Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number would not receive a classification due to an apparent scene in the game that implied sexual rape. A refused classification means the game can not be sold publicly or advertised, though developer Dennaton Games has suggested that Australian fans simply pirate the game.

For those who are able to purchase Hotline Miami 2 and happen to also own PayDay 2 will receive a Jacket character pack and exclusive masks for free. Purchasing the standard edition of Hotline Miami 2 gets you the Hotline Miami Mask Pack, which comes with six masks: Richter the Rat, Jake the Snake, Alex the Swan, Tony the Tiger, Corey the Zebra, and Helmet. The mask pack also adds 5 gallons of Hype Fuel for PayDay 2’s Hype Train event.

Those purchasing the Digital Special Edition of Hotline Miami 2 will receive the Jacket character set, all six masks plus the additional “Richard Returns” mask, a Sociopath perk deck, the Carpenter’s Delight hammer weapon, an SMG called Jacket’s Piece, and 10 gallons of Hype Fuel.

Due to Australia not selling the game, Dennaton has asked that those who do happen to find a way to buy the game send Overkill an email at info@overkillsoftware.com with “Australian Heister calling in” as the subject line.

You’ll then need to verify your Australian citizenship with an ID or passport in order to receive a special code for the PayDay 2 content.

You can read more about these at PayDay 2's official website.

I for one am glad we have a small selection of a limited cross-section of people dictating what is and isn't acceptable for adults of Australia to view. God forbid I have to make up my own mind.

For goodness sake Overkill, all you need to do now is set up a paypal donation button.
Then, wait to see how many of us thieves make a donation for being so awesome about our fuddy duddy classification board.

The Overkill guys are pretty cool :)

Reminds me of the original GTA, where they gave you a discount if you sent in a valid speeding ticket.

I was gonna get my kiwi mate to gift me it, but apparently he cant get it either so does anyone know if you can still just do the vpn trick and get it that way?
I don't really wanna pirate it, would prefer to hook such legends up with some moolah.

Just use a browser VPN and buy it from GMG, they have a 20% off code right now as well that puts it to $14 or so.

Jesus, without using a VPN you can't even VIEW THE PAGE for Hotline Miami 2 on GMG, Steam or GOG.
