Doom uncut version is coming to Germany for the first time in series history. This is something that has never been done before. Great news for German gamers as nothing will be cut from the game this time.
The news was confirmed by Bethesda Germany on Twitter:

According to Pete Hines:
We’re pleased the game can be released in its entirety in Germany without the need to edit or change anything,” Bethesda vice president of marketing Pete Hines told Polygon.Perhaps not all that surprising given how other titles have been rated there recently, but still a cool thing to see given that Doom and Doom 2 were banned in Germany and were delisted a few years ago.
Doom games were banned from releasing unedited in Germany as they were considered a bad influence on young minds. Doom 1 and 2 were banned for almost a decade before Bethesda picked up its intellectual property back in 2009 and appealed against the ban successfully.
Doom and Doom 2 are available unedited in the country now, so you can pick them up too before jumping into the new Doom game. Doom uncut version will provide the same amount of gore and violence players will other countries experience.
The game is expected to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 13.
