Germany Ends Total Ban On Nazi Symbols In Video Games

Posted by at 1:00 pm on August 10, 2018

Nazi symbols can now appear in video games in Germany, ending a long-running and frequently attacked censorship.

Germany bans symbols belonging to unconstitutional groups, which has caused problems in games where the Nazis are a frequent adversary.

In games like the Wolfenstein series, German editions would change Hitler’s name, remove his moustache, and replace swastikas with another shape.

The change means Nazi symbols used in an artistic way will be allowed.

Until now, using banned symbols would prevent a video game from being considered for a compulsory age rating – essentially banning it from being sold in stores.
