Publisher Wired Productions confirmed that LKA's narrative horror game Martha is Dead will be modified on PlayStation consoles while the PC and Xbox versions will be unaffected.
Sony are censoring parts of the upcoming psychological horror Martha is Dead. In the announcement on Twitter, the publisher of the game Wired Productions have confirmed that the physical release of the PlayStation version is being delayed to a yet undisclosed date, though, the team hopes this will be only a few weeks delay.
Parts of Marth is Dead will be censored while some gameplay elements will be completely removed and no longer playable.
"It is with regret that we have had to modify the experience on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions, with some elements no longer playable," Wired Productions and developer LKA said."
The digital release on PlayStation consoles will still release on February 24 and won't be affected by the delay but will be censored.
On the other hand, Xbox and PC players will get access to a full, unedited game. Martha is Dead will not be censored in any way on these platforms.
One of the scenes in Martha is Dead which could potentially be censored on PlayStation includes a player skinning the face of a dead person. While some may argue that such a scene is gruesome and Sony are right to censor it, it must be said that the company allowed very disturbing and graphic scenes in their first-party title The Last of Us Part II.
Martha is Dead is launching on February 24, 2022, for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and PS5.
