Witcher 2's sexual content censored 'down under'

CD Projekt has announced that the Australian version of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings will be censored a bit.

While Australia has adopted a 15+ rating for video games, The Witcher 2 occasionally offers up sex as a possible choice of reward for completing specific quests. The Australian version of the game will still include the associated quests, albeit with modified reward choices.

According to a statement released by CD Projekt, the changes to the Aussie version aren't major ones.

In order to obtain the rating in Australia, CD Projekt RED was unexpectedly obliged to make small changes to game content relating to the topic of sex as a reward. Since these changes are quite minor, especially relative to the total amount of content, they are unlikely to significantly affect the overall play experience.

It's not the first time that mild censorship has struck the series. Those who played the original game will likely remember that some of the game's sexual content (in the form of naughty trading cards the player would receive after each pantless encounter) was censored a bit for The Witcher's initial North American release.
