Eh, I'm just going to gamefly it. I'm not even entirely sure if I will enjoy it, as it is bringing back the mother base system which I did not enjoy whatsoever. Also I wonder how much of it is gameplay and how much of it is watching cut-scenes.

Notice: We’re sorry to inform you that we are unable to deliver your pre-ordered version of South Park: The Stick of Truth on March 6th as initially planned. The German and Austrian version of South Park: The Stick of Truth contains an unconstitutional symbol which means that we are unfortunately not able to release the game on the German and Austrian market at this time. This concerns all versions/platforms of the game. There is no need to amend or cancel your pre-order. A new release date of South Park: The Stick of Truth for the German and Austrian market will be announced shortly, and we will ensure that your order is delivered to coincide with this new date.
I knew they were removing the Nazi symbols because they're illegal in Germany but HOW HARD CAN IT BE TO REMOVE SOME SYMBOLS AND STILL RELEASE IT TOMORROW?

Does anyone know how to cancel a pre-order on Steam?

edit: found it, did it. Now I'm gonna check for some uncut keys...

You should just stick with the cracked game.

You might not get the pre-order bonus but oh well. Atleast you get to keep your Mula.

They do realize that in this game (slight spoilers, nothing story related)


I think a little Nazi symbol is the least worthy thing to delay this game for (although I think nothing should, just saying... many worse things in this game than that).

Hope you find a US version.

Yeah I found the US version. The thing with the swastika is that it's completely illegal to use in Germany (with the exception of documentaries and movies) so they basically have to remove the swastikas or the game won't be released at all.

So this will sound like I'm making fun of you but completely honest question, do they not release world war two games in Germany then? Or are they allowed?

They do, but without swastikas.

International:


German:


The same thing happens to the SS runes. Oh so you want to use a Nazi symbol in a WW2 game? Just use the Iron Cross instead! It's kinda nazi but not quite!

Hammer do you agree with taking it out? Forgive me if this sounds ignorant but I don't really understand it. Doesn't change the past, I guess the fear is some people might embrace it? I dunno, just seems like an overreaction to me.

I don't really agree with taking it out of games, especially the WW2 ones. It's one of the reason why I usually get international versions, it just adds realism. And I don't get it either because you can use it in movies, no problem.

In general I guess given the past of this country it's a good thing radical groups can't use the symbol to rally under but talking about video games? It's a bit of an overreaction.

Hmmmm that's interesting. I also noticed that cross has made its way into American games as well.
