The published new edition of Commandos 2 on Steam will only appear in a version without symbols and other things from the Second World War. The makers want to comply with the laws in different countries. In the forum, however, some users criticize this decision because the authenticity of the scenarios is lost. Among other things, there is talk of censorship.
Publisher Kalypso Media released Commandos 2 – HD Remaster, a new edition of the real-time tactics title for the PC last week. However, some fans are in the Steam forum disappointed with the version of the game. Accordingly, the creators opted for a single version of Commando 2 without "symbols, portraits or speeches" from the times of the Second World War. The main purpose of this is to avoid difficulties in some countries where these things would cause violations of the law. You can find part of the statement below.
"As a company, we’re committed to complying with the law, but we want to give our users the best experience possible with our games without causing possible delays or even bans in certain countries. That’s why we chose this route, so that we are not forced to split the players into groups or not to publish the game in some regions. "
In the forum, fans criticize, among other things, the statement that the game should offer "authentic WW2 scenarios". However, this authenticity should not be achieved due to the lack of symbols. Some users even accuse the team of censoring content. In August 2018, the USK lifted the ban on swastikas in games in Germany. These guidelines were then fleshed out last year.
