In case you’re unfamiliar with the game, Wolfenstein: The New Order features lots of Nazis. Nazi flags, Nazis blowing stuff up, Nazis wearing Nazi arm bands, etc. They’re all over the game, and when BJ Blazkowicz is through with them, they’re literally all over the place — a Nazi giblet here, a newly severed Nazi limb there. For most of the Nazi-hating world, this isn’t a problem, but Germany is still a wee bit sensitive to the whole thing.
For a Nazi-heavy game like The New Order, the fact that it’s illegal in Germany to display symbols of “unconstitutional organizations” — a category in which Nazis would most definitely be filed under — could become a problem. So in order to get the game approved for a release in Germany, developer MachineGames had to go through and make a few changes first.
This before-and-after video from Eurogamer shows off the level of censorship the Nazis endured before the lovely folks in Germany could enjoy it.
Wolfenstein: The New Order is available everywhere — including Germany! — for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
