The world is finally about to experience the digital awesomeness of South Park: The Stick of Truth–but not every part of the world will get a complete experience.
According to previous reports, Europe and Australia banned several scenes from the new South Park RPG due to what censors deemed to be too offensive for the general public’s eyes and ears. They involve scenes featuring characters being probed by aliens and an abortion being performed as part of a mini-game in the game’s main story mode. Instead, those players will see a message posted in the game apologizing for their native lands’ lack of a sense of humor.
So what exactly was so bad that several nations decided for their citizens that it was too offensive for them to consume? Someone on YouTube posted both of the scenes in question from Ubisoft’s game based on the long-running Comedy Central cartoon. The scenes iare much more than simple cutscenes. In fact, they appear to be playable and even integral parts of the game’s central story. Both, however, are still NSFW unless you happen to work at South Park Studios.
The first involves the playable character being abducted by a UFO and given an anal probe. As they are escorted to their probing chamber, the scene also features several familiar characters from South Park undergoing the procedure.
The other scene in question requires the player to give Randy Marsh, Stan’s dad, an abortion at gunpoint.
These scenes may be graphic for some people with more easily offended minds but banning them seems unnecessary. Come on, would you expect anything less from a South Park game?
