Wolfenstein: The New Order is going to be released in just over a month and ahead of its release, Bethesda has announced that the German version of the game will not feature any Nazis. They said:
They’re a little touchy, So the Nazis are called the Regime in Wolfenstein in Germany and it’s actually…I’m pretty sure this is the first Wolfenstein game that will ever be released in Germany, but it’s completely stripped of all the constitutionally banned content.
Wolfenstein franchise started over 20 years ago in 1992 and was one of the first FPS games. All of the games in series have focused on Nazis as the bad guys, due to this reason none of the titles were released in Germany.
Wolfenstein: The New Order will be the first game of the series to be released in Germany and marketing executive of Bethesda Peter Hines said:
They have a thing about Nazis there. The Nazis will not be called Nazis, instead, they will be called the Regime. A random, made-up hoop of bad guys.
The game will be single player only and will take place in fictional 1960 world where Nazis won the World War 2. The protagonist William “B.J.” Blazkowicz is now given a task to take down the whole Nazi regime and take back the control of super weapons that they are using to dominate the world.
Wolfenstein: The New Order will release on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC on 20th of May.
