Good news for the fans who are waiting for Witcher 3 The Wild Hunt. The copies of the game are out on PS4 and Xbox One in Middle East and several game shops are selling the the retail copies ahead of launch. The game is 10 days away from launch and will be coming on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The game that is currently being sold is censored version; this news was confirmed by Rafal Jaki, the business development manager at CDPR. According to Jaki, things needed to be censored this is because Witcher 3 is rated M and not censoring would have caused issues with the game release.
Here’s the official statement:
I would not really call it a censored version. Yes we had to cover the frontal nudity, and turn down some gore, but this is not what the game is about. The Arabic translation is high quality so we would like for the Arab Gamers to try it out.
The countries that will be getting the censored versions are; UAE, KSA, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon.
