GERMANY has lifted a ban on computer games that include content featuring Nazi symbology and will now review each game on its artistic and educational merits, following an ongoing debate around the computer game franchise Wolfenstein.

The Entertainment Software Self-Regulation Body (USK) announced on Thursday that they would allow Nazi symbols in video games. The decision comes after the game Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was heavily edited in Germany. The story takes place in an alternate reality where the Nazi’s won, and an aged Hitler’s mustache was edited out and all swastikas were replaced with triangles. Call of Duty: Black Ops, South Park:The Stick of Truth, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade are other titles that were heavily edited to remove Nazi symbols. The symbols will still be illegal in the country, but the ban will allow games to show the symbols if there is a historical purpose behind it.
