The ban on the game Wolfenstein 3D is lifted in Germany. This means that the Germans get to play the classic FPS adventure 30 years after the rest of us. As a bonus, Spear of Destiny will also be included for those who purchase the game on Steam.
Germany has traditionally had tough laws for digital games. There has almost always been some form of censorship in the games that have been released (if they are even allowed to be released). It has been everything from the enemies being turned into robots or the blood being dyed green, all to reduce the "violence" in the games. It has been particularly sensitive if the games had any kind of connection to Nazism or the Second World War. Games like Wolfenstein have been banned without pardon in the country, but now after 30 years the classic Wolfenstein 3D is finally being released . Game history is made!
