South Park: The Stick of Truth will be censored in Europe

Ubisoft has made cuts to seven scenes

[Update: The PC version of The Stick of Truth will be censored in the following regions: Germany, Austria, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.]

Eurogamer has had a look at a document that claims Ubisoft has cut seven scenes in South Park: The Stick of Truth in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The cuts are only happening on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions but not the PC version and affect two mini-games involving abortion and five scenes involving an anal probe. 

All scenes have been replaced by a static image with text written by Trey Stone and Matt Parker. These appear to be the same cuts that have been made to the game at the end of 2013 in Australia to secure an R18+ rating. It seems these cuts have been made to avoid the same issues in the likes of Germany as in Australia.

The humor in South Park treads a fine line and you would expect people to know what to expect if they're buying The Stick of Truth but that's always harder to justify to a country's rating board.
