According to a report from, the EU version of Call of Duty: Black Ops has been banned in Germany.

Instead, only localised versions of the game will be authorised by Steam.

This is down to censorship laws in the country, with games having to go under checks in regards to the uses of depictions of war.

Because Steam will require an activation for a localised version, the EU version of the game can’t be imported, including from those in the UK.

Call of Duty: Black Ops releases on November 9 worldwide.
