Black Ops Steam Activation Only Works With German Version
Call of Duty fans in Germany hoping to get their hands on the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops will not be able to play PAL versions imported from other EU countries. The strict censorship laws in the country mean that many games, and particularly those with an historical military setting, have to undergo strict checks regarding their use of insignia and depictions of war.
Any copies imported from other EU regions such as the UK will not work in the country, the Steam network will only authorise fully localised German versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops. This means that copies imported from other EU countries won’t be playable.
