Fallout's Strange History of Censorship

German censorship[]

  • Blood and gore were removed.
  • Blood in the intro was removed (only PlayStation 3).

Indian censorship[]

The game is not available on Steam in India, due to the game featuring mutant cattle called "Brahmin", which could be offensive to Hindus.

Japanese censorship[]

  • The "Fat Man" nuclear catapult weapon was renamed "Nuka Launcher". This is because "Fat Man" was the codename for the atomic bomb that was detonated over Nagasaki by the United States on 9 August 1945.
  • Due to Bethesda wanting ensure the game's release and avoid controversy, the drug "morphine" was renamed to "Med-X".

Where to find it uncensored[]

There is no completely uncensored version available to the public. Germans can access the least censored version (the international version of the Ultimate Edition) on Steam.
