Conan Exiles On Xbox Won’t Have Nudity In America, Will Have Nudity In Europe
Conan Exiles
(Last Updated On: August 12, 2017)

Americans won’t be able to increase the size of their dong or tea-bag opponents with a physics-based sausage spinner in Conan: Exiles when it launches for Xbox One on August 16th.

The news came courtesy of a live-stream from Funcom, where they were peppered with questions from the console gaming community about the nudity in Conan: Exiles, and whether it would make the leap from the PC version to the console version. Unfortunately, Americans won’t be able to experience big boobs and wobbly dongs… but Europeans will be able to experience them until their heart’s content. Censored Gaming captured the short two-minute clip where the differences between the two regional versions are explained.

For the hearing impaired, Funcom’s community manager for Conan: Exiles, Jens Erik, explained in the live-stream…

“There will be full nudity on the Xbox version in Europe, and there will be partial nudity on the Xbox version in the U.S.

 

“And the reason for this is – if we included full nudity in Conan: Exiles, this would have resulted in a more restrictive ESRB rating in North America, which then might have prevented a broad release of the game.”

So basically, the issue arose from the ESRB. According to Erik, the game had no issues securing an 18+ PEGI rating in Europe – even with the game including full nudity for both males and females – but they couldn’t secure an ‘M’ for Mature rating from the ESRB for full nudity. Instead, Funcom had to settle for partial nudity in Conan: Exiles for the Xbox One, and even that still netted them an ‘M’ for Mature rating.

If you’re not happy about the North American Xbox One version being restricted in what sort of content it can show, you can always stick with the PC version of the game, or play the European version of the game.

Conan: Exiles is due for release on the Xbox One in the Game Preview program starting August 16th for $34.99. Funcom plans on continuing to update and iterate the game during the Early Access phase leading up to a full release during the first quarter of 2018.

    either setup ur console region settings to within europe and connect a vpn within europe and download the uncensored version, or just get it on pc without a rating xD you can release Adult Only Games On Steam.

  • Eldhin Hellknight

    Thankyou Gringoland… I suppose that it will be the same for PS4 version (if there’s one)

    • RichardGristle

      Sony and MS generally share the same “We’re a corporation that doesn’t want to be associated with this kind of content” approach with non-AAA games.

      • Eldhin Hellknight

        At least people can buy the EU version, since both consoles are region free. But I wonder if Xbox users must buy an EU Live membership to be able to play it.

  • MONAD

    M rated games have full frontal nudity all the time. I don’t get why Exiles is the special case that it has to be censored.

  • Troy Marcel

    Yay for wobbly bits for the rest of the world

  • Pratim Gupta

    And that is why kids, PC is still and always will be the Master Race. Praise Lord Gaben

    So what can one do to get your dong and pussy back with tities too.

    You can write to the ESRB tell them your thoughts and tell them a question why it needed to be partially naked. Tell them other games shows a penis and boobs and slap on a M.

    and see what you get back there are the PEGI emails out there on the net.

    Doing nothing won’t do jack shit done, also boycott the NA version because that what I shall do if I lived over there. Buy our Dong/ pussy uncensored version instead if a lot of people do that it makes funcom and Microsoft and Sony sit up a notice.

    Speaking of Sony I wonder if the PS4 will be censored for NA and uncensored for EU hmmm.

    Edit: also once you get a response from ESRB post a screencap here and elsewhere.

    So no long dong and wet pussy swaying in the wind for NA, but dong in GTA get it a M.

    I show that stream it suppose to be partially nude for NA but looking at the stream no boobs are showing.

    Besides it the old hear say NISA excuse without any proof, they got no proof that ESRB will slap a AO they can guess it could but even so it didn’t and how can you not support a dev If they don’t try.

      “wet pussy swaying in the wind”

      I swear that’s a line from an Enya song.

  • RichardGristle
  • Funny how games like The Witcher 3 and Grand Theft Auto V on the NA copies of the Xbox One gets to go uncensored with exposed tittie nippies while this one doesn’t.

    • Alistair

      Yes both titles got nudity and have a M rating. So this makes no sense unless ESRB are changing for the worst.

      If PEGI change it will be basically game over for the game industry.

      • Thank goodness game ratings doesn’t matter on pc.

    You know, its funny that usa is so puritan with nudity that it somehow the parents passed it to the progressive children and they are also sex negative. I mean Germany and france have feminism but they like nudity. Wtf?

    • Kiryu

      And yet absolute violence is a ok.I’ll never understand usa and their puritanism either.

      • It’s based on the old Catholic Orthodoxy of Puritanism and the basic religious tenets of Judeo-Christian principles of conduct. It’s part of the ingrained culture relating to views on obscenity and sex in America, especially when multimedia really took off during the 1950s.

        Things partly died down during the late 1990s but kicked back up again when the FCC threw a conniption over Janet Jackson’s partially exposed nipple during the half-time show at the Super Bowl in 2004. Censorship really kicked up once more and even cable programs scaled back.

        During the late aughts things died down again and we saw a lot more boundaries being pushed in multimedia once more. However, as we all know, around 2012 or so regressive third-wave feminists from the Liberal Left led the charge for Social Justice Warriors to yell about everything being sexist, this also re-opened the door for Conservative Puritans to rear their heads once more and start a war on boobs… again.

    • Alistair

      I know it kinda funny isn’t it because they are a backwards lot as in regressions.

      But it still doesn’t explain backwards ESRB that allow boobs in GTA with a M rating but any sight of a penis and pussy it a automatic AO.

      Maybe someone must tell the ESRB you only running around naked and not having sex hell GTA had sex in it also a man penis and still given a M.

      Edit: what we have hear is a classic case of cherry picking the issue is not about depictions of strong sexy characters because they are well in EU.

      the left doesn’t single out every game if they did why not a uproar about our EU uncensored version. And I don’t hear NA queen Anita or other SJWers saying bad shit about Conan exiles even though it censored.
