    Sorry Germany - No Dead Island: Riptide for You

    http://www.ps3.qj.net

    Sorry to all those in Germany, but Dead Island: Riptide is a no-go for publishing due to some annoying laws and the lack of a censored version of the game.



    Sebastian Reichert, creative producer of Dead Island: Riptide, told PCGamesN why the game will not be published in Germany: We have no censored version of the game, so we cannot release it in Germany. It feels [] awkward to have one of the most successful games in years and nobody in your country knows it.

    As to why there would have to be a censored version of Dead Island: Riptide to qualify for German release, its because German laws prohibit violence against human-like characters. The original Dead Island was banned in Germany due to portrayed attacks on zombies, which was basically viewed s the mutilation of corpses.

    Reichert said he believes that the German laws are unfair, saying: At the moment, I'm really confused that you can buy Gears of War 3 in stores in Germany, but not Dead Island. Because, where's the difference? [The enemies in Gears of War 3] are human-like, and [players] can do things to them. That's in stores.

    Dead Island: Riptide will be released in April 2013 for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, but not in Germany.

    Thoughts on the German law?
