Psychological thriller Martha is Dead is heading to Xbox in a couple of weeks' time on February 24th, and it's now been confirmed that the Xbox and PC versions will be "unedited", while the PlayStation versions are getting some changes.
In a message posted on Twitter, the development team explained that the game "consists of potentially discomforting scenes and themes that may distress players", but insisted that they have "always been open and honest" about its content since the game was announced in 2019, and they're "regrettably" having to modify the experience on PlayStation. Here's a look at the full statement:
Since the announcement, a video clip has been doing the rounds on Twitter showing a particularly discomforting scene in which you're required to cut off the face of a dead person, which is certainly very violent and graphic.
The game itself isn't actually being described as a horror title but rather a "dark first-person psychological thriller" set in 1944 Italy, in which you set out to find out what happened to a woman called Martha who's desecrated body is found after being drowned. It's said to feature "a dark multi-layered narrative which blurs the lines between reality, superstition and the tragedy of war."
