Blizzard: Starcraft 2 with less blood in Germany
It seems like Blizzard wants to adjust Starcraft 2 for the German market this has been revealed in an interview.
Just recently it has been reported that Blizzard will cut Diablo 3 for the German and the Australian markets. Now it has been announced in an interview at the fan website instarcraft2.de that this also applies to Starcraft 2.
Allen Dilling, Lead 3D Artist of Starcraft 2 said that there will be slight adjustments - blood will be removed or changed in color. Cutting enemies in half is one of the discussed things, too. But According to Dilling only few units are affected, because there are a lot of robot units and those wouldn't be changed since they don't bleed.
Blizzard wants to get an USK (German rating board) rating for Starcraft 2 that restricts the game for those below 12 years of age only. The exact modifications have not been decided on yet and the German employees of Activision Blizzard will be consulted first.
