People in Germany can at last buy Wolfenstein 3D

You can always rely on PCG to bring you the news of the hottest game releases as soon as they’re announced. Whether it’s shadow drops at Gamescom, bombshell announcements at TGS, or the latest news on hotly-anticipated titles like, uh, Wolfenstein 3D.

Okay, 1992’s premier FPS isn’t news to you, but people in Germany haven’t been able to buy the game since it was effectively banned from sale in 1994 for its inclusion of Nazi symbols. That ban—and a later one on the game’s 1997 expansion Spear Of Destiny—was at last lifted in 2019 (opens in new tab), but German players still couldn’t really get their hands on the games because they hadn’t been given an age rating by Germany’s Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (Entertainment Software Self-Regulation, or USK).
