MMOsite’s grabbed some before and after screens, and it looks as though the Chinese government isn’t keen on bones and skulls.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    The Forsaken actually wear shorts that cover their knees in the Chinese version.

    It would be interesting to know the changes and the reasons behind them.
