Land of War: The Beginning With New Release Date

We learned the new release date of Land of War: The Beginning. The delay was not long - the title from MS Games will debut on June 10.

The shooter Land of War: The Beginning from MS Games has received a new - this time probably final - release date. The title was supposed to be released on May 28, but at the last minute the developers issued an announcement that they had to remove symbols evoking associations with Nazi ideology from the game and needed more time. Fortunately, the delay turned out to be small and we will play Land of War on June 10.

One of the developers and co-owner of the studio, Sebastian Binik, explained [in Polish] the situation in the following words:

"The game is complete and playable from start to finish. The delay in its release was not due to technical issues but the need to remove some of the symbols that were present in the game. In Land of War we have accurately recreated World War II weapons, uniforms, vehicles, and locations, and we assure history buffs that the changes we have made will not affect the immersion into the reality of the September campaign. We wanted to delay the release as little as possible, so taking all the factors into account we decided on June 10, 2021."

Nazi symbols appearing in pop culture, for obvious reasons, are not well received in some countries, such as Germany, which, while it has partially abolished censorship in 2018, it is with the requirement that the presence of said symbol must serve 'artistic or scientific purposes' and be justified by the presentation of 'current or historical events'. This doesn't quite fit in with Binik's statement and description of what we'll see in Land of War: The Beginning doesn't it? MS Games promised that after the game's release we will receive a patch that will restore the controversial symbols in the countries that permit their use.

Land of War will be released exclusively on PC.
