At long last, German owners of 2009’s classic multiplayer survival horror game Left 4 Dead 2 can finally play it uncut over a decade since its initial release. The developer announced on Steam that German authorities reevaluated the survival horror game after they had deemed the game too violent and removed blood scenes whilst also preventing players doing all kinds of gorry things to enemies. Australia also had the same issues as Germany where Value had to remove bodies of the infected after dying and even went to the lengths of removing the game’s cover image that featured a hand with a finger missing.
The statement reads: “Valve recently requested that German authorities re-evaluate the game Left 4 Dead 2. We are happy to let you know that as a result the uncut international version of Left 4 Dead 2 is now available to our customers in Germany. Owners of the game in Germany can download this free DLC to update the game if you wish to do so.”
Valve released the uncut version of Left 4 Dead in Australia all the way back in 2014 after the R18+ rating for video games went into effect in the country and now Germany has finally caught up giving German owners of the game the full and meatier version where they can hack and slash their way through the title without missing out and download the free DLC to add gore back into the game.
