Doom Will Be 100% Uncut In Germany

The words "100 percent uncut" aren't familiar to Germans.

Well, not in relation to the Doom franchise, at any rate. Which is why this news is particularly significant:

Developer id Software's brutal upcoming FPS will be released in its original uncut form in Germany, making it the first time Doom has ever been uncensored in that country. The German arm of publisher Bethesda made the announcement on Twitter, and then we caught a seriously bizarre video:

Then, a Bethesda North America representative offered an English statement to Polygon:

"We're pleased the game can be released in its entirety in Germany without the need to edit or change anything. 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."

Uncut Doom entries were actually barred from legal sale in Germany, due to the Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons. Up until recently, Fallout 3 was also banned in Germany and of course, these are hardly the only examples of banned titles overseas.

But German gamers don't have to worry now, as unbridled gore and death will be coming their way soon. Doom releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in May; recently, we learned the campaign will take about 13 hours to complete, which sounds just about right. We also know a beta is coming soon as well but we don't have any details just yet.

Does that mean it will be all weak from the get go?

Until recently, Germany was high on the censored versions, or complete bans on some games, as FO3 was banned for 7 years till now.
