Jericho faces German ban

342w ago - Update: Codemasters state: Following a review by the USK ratings board, which declined to give an official rating, Codemasters has decided not to change the artistic vision of the renowned author and filmmaker Clive Barker through cuts and extensive changes.

"Codemasters respects Mr Barker's creative ideas, despite the German distribution and marketing consequences for the title. Therefore Codemasters will release only the PC version of Clive Barker's Jericho in its original form on the 26th of October for adult gamers and Clive Barker fans."

Here's a shocker for you: Clive Barker's Jericho, the ultra-gory horror FPS from Codemasters, is facing a ban from censorship-conscious Germany as its USK ratings board refuses to issue it a rating.

However, unlike the Manhunt 2 ban ordeal which saw Rockstar forced into making changes to the game to receive an acceptable rating, Codemasters remains defiant in the German ruling.

Meanwhile, no such problems are expected here in UK, as the demo is due for PC and 360 tomorrow, and for PS3 here in Europe next week.

Clive Barker's Jericho demo arriving this week

343w ago - Codemasters confirmed to GameSpot today that a PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 demo for Clive Barker's Jericho would be getting under gamers' skin this week. The PC demo will creep onto GameSpot Wednesday, with an Xbox Live and PlayStation Network trial slated to follow on Thursday.

Clive Barker's Jericho is rated M for Mature. Check out the latest trailer for the game, available exclusively through GameSpot, and pick up the PC demo on Wednesday.

In the demo for Barker's latest supernatural shooter, players will attempt to survive during the Crusades time period after their strike force has been decimated by the evil forces controlling the city of Al-Khali. As the spirit of deceased squad leader Cpt. Devin Ross, players will be able to possess the bodies of heavy-weapons expert Sgt. Frank Delgado, telekinetic sniper Lt. Abigail Black, and enchantress and martial weapons specialist Sgt. Billie Church. Players will also get a first-hand look at the warped abominations that Barker has devised for the game.
