With the reason chalked up to implied sexual violence. As per the report over at Kotaku, the refusal comes down to one sequence where the main character Blake is hallucinating and sees all manner of weirdness. Like his wife chained up in agony, and what's described as one creature bending another over a rock and engaging in rear-entry, err, stuff. Also, Blake gets taken advantage of by a female creature with "greyish breasts bared".

As per our rating system, implied sexual violence is an automatic refusal. As per the Outlast 2 demo, which got an R18+ rating, it's believed that the full game would have also gotten a similar rating minus this one sequence.

Here's the full description of the sequence in question. Fair warning though, as it paints a pretty horrific picture.

In one cut-scene in the game ... a female creature prepares Blake for a ritual. She says, "I want to see your true face. Your seed will burn this world." Shortly afterwards, he objects to having psycho-active dust blown into his face, yelling, "Nope! Nope!" before he stumbles into a forest clearing.
His vision blurring, he witnesses what appears to a ritualistic orgy. His wife, Lynn, calls out for his help, saying, "It hurts! Oh god!," as she hangs from chains on a raised platform at the front of the clearing. Humanoid creatures, their skin grey, spattered with blood and scarred, implicity have sex as others pray, or chant, or gesticulate.
One creature has another bent over a rock, thrusting as they implicitly have rear-entry sex, another sits astride the pelvic region of a creature prone on the ground, moving their hips rhythmically as they too implicitly have sex. Two other pairs of creatures in the clearing are also implicitly having sex.
As Blake yells for the creatures to "Get away from her!" a female creature, her greyish breasts bared, pushes him onto his back, holds his arms to the ground and repeatedly thrusts her crotch against him. As Blake protests, saying "No! Stop that!" the creature thrusts again, before placing its face over his midsection and then sitting up and wiping its mouth.
Although much of the contact between the creature and Blake is obscurred, by it taking place below screen, the sexualised surroundings and aggressive behaviour of the creature suggest that it is an assault which is sexual in nature. The Board is of the opinion that this, combined with Blake's objections and distress, constitutes a depiction of implied sexual violence.
In the Board's opinion, the above example constitutes a depiction of implied sexual violence and therefore cannot be accommodated within the R18+ classification category and the game is therefore Refused Classification.

What's the point of an R rating if it can't accommodate monstrous ritual demon orgies

Well now.

Seems this game I haven't heard of is now on my radar. Thanks ever present censorship system for alerting me to this.
If the government decides it can do my thinking for me, I say f*** that and I'm going to play it in defiance.

Rear-entry sex

The person who wrote that sounds like they'd be really boring in bed, missionary 4 life, only once each second Tuesday. lol
