The sci-fi role-playing game Cyberpunk 19 is scheduled to be released on November 2077, and CD Projekt Red and Bandai Namco have cleared an important hurdle, at least in Germany: the age check at the USK. Only for adults, ie vice versa: "No youth release according to the Youth Protection Act" is the verdict that the entertainment software self-regulation has made.
Ungeschnitten erscheint CD Projekt Reds Sci-Fi-RPG Cyberpunk 2077 hierzulande, das ist längst klar. Dass die Macher von „The Witcher“ auch bei ihrem neuen Cyberpunk-Rollenspiel auf Tabu-Themen, Gewalt und Sex setzen würden, wurde bereits angerissen – von Fans sogar erwartet. Nun ist klar: Auch die Prüfinstanz Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle sieht genügend Inhalte für Erwachsene, um dem Videospiel sein verdientes USK-18-Siegel zu verleihen. Entwickler und Fans freut es.
Cyberpunk 2077 appears uncut in Germany
On August 13th, the USK tested Cyberpunk 2077 in the English language version. The verdict was as expected. CD Projekt Red is not particularly reticent when it comes to using taboo topics. The first part of the "The Witcher" series and the latest third offshoot were already full of scenes that are not suitable for children's eyes - and it's the same with Cyberpunk 2077.
Among other things, this trailer makes it clear why the USK should not have thought long about the classification:
The previously published screenshots and trailers for the game have already provided a foretaste of the gloomy setting. With its test verdict, the USK has now officially confirmed what fans had long expected - some had hoped -: The game world of Cyberpunk 2077 is a rough place.
Cyberpunk 2077 will appear in Germany as early as November. Unedited, as the developers have officially announced - and they are even happy about the decision of the entertainment self-control, because it is clear that CD Projekt Red can present the game to its fans in the same way as developers and authors the setting, the world and have presented the actions.
CD Projekt Red has dated its release on November 19th. Cyberpunk 2077 will then be released for PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4, and a version for Google Stadia is planned for the current year. Cyberpunk 2077 will also appear on next-gen consoles as soon as they are available - a corresponding upgrade that uses the hardware of the new generation of consoles will also come later.
