Ghost Warrior 2’s ‘dismemberment’ feature won’t be on disc

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 has a ‘dismemberment’ feature, allowing players to, well, dismember foes with a well-placed shot. But the feature won’t be included on the game disc. The reason? Germany.

The studio fears the game may be otherwise banned in the country — it tends to do that to more violent games — and will instead release it as DLC in other regions.

Fear not, it will be a free download on all PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and should be available as soon as the game launches in August, producer Michael Sroczynski tells Joystiq.
