Bethesda has announced that “Wolfenstein: Youngblood” and the VR offshoot “Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot” will be released on July 26, 2019, in parallel to the German version for the first time as an international version in Germany.
The USK (entertainment software self-control) has, after submission for both variants, the age identification “from 18” (“No youth release according to § 14 JuSchG”) confirmed.
Both versions are, as in the past, the same content in terms of their explicit representation of the effects. The original international version is available in English.
The statement: “The initial evaluation of this version by the USK committees was made possible by a change in the USK’s testing practice, which considers the so-called social adequacy clause of § 86a (3) of the Criminal Code (StGB) in games.
Although approval is always an individual decision based on the final product, the development continued to work on both versions, which are now being published at the same time, each of which is a standalone development, which is why it is moving from the German version to the international one Original version and vice versa not possible. ”
