Diablo III Will Be Edited In Certain Regions

Diablo 3 Barbarian.It’s hard to avoid Blizzard news during pretty much the entire month in which Blizzcon takes place. It’s a huge event, and Blizzard has one of the most rabid fanbases around. That’s a recipe for crazy rumors, crazy news leaks, and even crazier rumors.

Now we’re past Blizzcon, though, so most of what we’re hearing has come straight from the horse’s mouth, and this is no different (though it actually comes from GamesCom). Diablo III developer Jay Wilson spoke with Wired regarding the level of gore in the upcoming dungeon masher. Apparently some regions tend to frown on exploding body parts, to say nothing of most of the parents in the rest of the world. As such, certain regions will be getting an edited version of the new game – one that’s been cleaned up for the prudes of the world.

The game will also be shipping with parental controls for those nitpicky parents who think it’s okay for their son/daughter to be cleaving through the minions of hell, so long as they don’t bleed.
