Soon I'm going to be getting The Witcher: Enchanted edition and and i was wondering what is missing from the censored version? If its just the cards then i don't really mind but if there are parts of the story missing or quest taken out then I would rather get the uncensored version.

First, its Enhanced edition, just to be clear.

Second, yes its censored. The Steam version, retail version, whatever you buy in North America is censored. The cards have the ladies breasts covered up and the in game models that showed breasts are also covered up. For example, in the swamp there is a wood nymph or something and she now has hair covering her nipple pixels.

Absolutely retarded that this country is so ridiculously stupid about nudity censorship when crazy over the top violence is totally acceptable, but that's how it is. I totally understand importing it, as I despise censorship, but in this case I didn't worry about it and just got the Steam version.

I bought it overseas via a UK online store, so it is unrated. I wish I could remember the name of the store, maybe someone else might know. If you don't mind the added price of shipping fees, I reccomend it. If only on principle,  I hear the two versions are not that different.

I don't mind the nudity being censored out; I actually prefer it.  I just don't care for that kind of thing in my games.  This actually answered a question I was going to ask!  lol

There is no blood in the NA versions of the game?

I'm not entirely sure to be honest, my experience is only with the European version. There is a thread concerning this on the official Witcher forums. If I remember correctly, it does feature blood but it's been toned own heavily. Like I say, I do believe it can be fixed.

Ask on uncle Claude's wall, he will be able to fill you exactly. He has the NA version.

EDIT:

I can faintly recall CD Projekt making a mess of things, and unintentionally removing blood from the NA download. I'm pretty sure that's what happened.

Thats bullshit, I`m going to import this.
So when the PS3 version comes out, will that have nudity in EU but not NA? or is there any nudity in this version at all?

I know. It makes no sense. The Strokes had to change their album cover in order to sell it in America because the original cover was "too sexy". It was nothing! It was like, side butt and a black glove. But a game like Gears of War, where you can shoot people to the ground and rip them in half with chainsaws as they try desperately to crawl away, is totally acceptable. But god forbid somebody show a nipple!

I was in the UK when the game came out so I bought it there.
Trust me, you're not missing anything. If you have the cognitive ability to post on this website, you can find better titillation elsewhere.
It's just weird and sad.

Aye it's no big deal at all, it will make no difference to one's experience of the game. Still, the very idea of stuff being censored in any game does not sit well in my mind.

I agree. It's like how they censored out the blood in the PAL version(I think in the Japanese version too) of No More Heroes. I wouldn't have complained about the absence of blood if there wasn't any blood to begin with, but games should be kept the way they were made. Censoring is just lame.

That's a new one on me. I thought they added blood with the NA enhanced edition download. For me there seems to be more blood, but I could be wrong. As for the uncensored version... well as you know the NA version is toned down. I downloaded a mod, but did not use it. I can see the naked cards elsewhere and I quit caring. I would like to see Morenn's green bush though, but I guess it leaves more to the imagination.

Okay I found the Blood Revival Patch: Check the top post on the forums for the download links. I already had it installed.

Awesome on the Blood Revival Patch.  I'll take the blood without the nudity but if I can't have it that way, I'd rather play with none at all.  :)  I plan on picking up the physical copy of the Enhanced Edition so the blood shouldn't be a problem.

I did it as a matter of principle, one well worth the cost of shipping. The US edition is apparently edited in terms of gore, as well. =/

Did you get the standard edition?. because the Limited Edition box is pretty big.  I imagine the shipping on the LE would have cost notably more shipped to the US.

/agree

Nudity is a wonderful thing, especially polygonal nudity because you don't have to worry about herpes
