Jericho denied German rating, demo out tomorrow

jerichoIn some brow furrowing news, the upcoming horror/FPS, Clive Barker’s Jericho, won’t be getting a classification by the USK, Germany’s game-rating organization, according to GamePolitics.

Therefore, much like Xbox 360’s Crackdown, Jericho won’t be sold to minors or via online. Also the game can’t be displayed or advertised in stores in Germany.

It appears Sony and Microsoft won’t market a game without a USK classification, so as of writing, it appears Jericho will only be released for PC and for 18 and older gamers in Germany.

In related news, GameSpot is reporting that Codemasters will release a demo tomorrow for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. The demo will contain:

"In the demo for Barker’s latest supernatural shooter, players will attempt to survive during the Crusades time period after their strike force has been decimated by the evil forces controlling the city of Al-Khali. As the spirit of deceased squad leader Cpt. Devin Ross, players will be able to possess the bodies of heavy-weapons expert Sgt. Frank Delgado, telekinetic sniper Lt. Abigail Black, and enchantress and martial weapons specialist Sgt. Billie Church. Players will also get a first-hand look at the warped abominations that Barker has devised for the game."

Clive Barker’s Jericho is heading to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 23rd (U.S.) and October 26th (Germany).
