Wolfenstein: Youngblood Will Receive Uncensored Version in Germany

Published

 on

Wolfenstein: Youngblood‘s will show Nazi imagery in a video game available in Germany for the first time.

In previous Wolfenstein games, the German versions had various alterations to comply with the country’s laws regarding Nazi imagery. For example, Hitler’s name was changed from “Fuhrer” to “Chancellor” in Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, as well as also had his mustache removed. Additionally, the swastikas were replaced with triangles. However, the guidelines of Germany’s strict laws have loosened. Gamers in Germany will have access to both the German version as well as the international version, with the latter being uncensored.

Germany’s laws make displaying the swastika and gestures like the Nazi salute in public illegal. However, if the symbols are used in education or for artistic purposes, then they could be allowed. Back in August 2018, Germany’s rating body, USK, noted that video games are now treated as a form of art like film and will be reviewed on a case by case basis. As a result Wolfenstein: Youngblood can justify its use of such imagery.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood showed off a new trailer during E3.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is one of OnlySP’s 50 favorite games. Read OnlySP’s review of Wolfenstein 2:The New Colossus here.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood launches on July 26, 2019 on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

The opening shows an earthquake that has hit Kanobe City, as well as some ominous red eyes (presumably Digimon) surrounding an old man in a forest. Near the end, the main character, Takuma, sees a mysterious silhouette of a girl, and the opening finishes with her singing.

Digimon Survive follows Takuma and his companion, Agumon, as they make decisions to stay alive and escape a bizarre dimension.
