In Germany lifted the ban on games with Nazi symbols

В Германии сняли запрет на игры с нацистской символикой

Nazi symbols should serve artistic or scientific purpose or be used to play specific historical events. The German organization USK governing entertainment software in Germany, allowed to sell in the country video games that use Nazi symbols, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to UNIAN.

USK decided that instead of a complete ban can be entered on the additional video games age rating.

In USK at the same time said that the use of banned symbols in video games should be “socially adequate”. This means that Nazi symbols should serve artistic or scientific purpose or be used to reproduce specific historical events, explained in the organization.

The reason for discussing the use of Nazi symbols in video games was released in 2017, the game “Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus”. It takes place in an alternate universe where the Nazis won the Second world war. In Germany made a separate version of the game, in which a swastika replaced the “neutral triangle” and Adolf Hitler “removed” mustache.

Among other games uncensored in Germany: “Call of Duty: Black “, “South Park: The Stick of Truth” and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”.
