We've often wondered why other game publishers haven't tried this in the past, but it appears that the creators of the upcoming Sniper 2: Ghost Warrior are separating the controversial dismemberment feature of the game out into a post-launch download content pack in order to avoid regional censorship issues.

Speaking to Joystiq (via: VG247), Producer Michael Sroczynski explained that
"dismemberment" was removed in retail copies of the game in order to ensure the title would not be banned in Germany. Sroczynski referred to the additional content as "DLC" and not an update; however, he did promise it would launch free for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. The intention is to release the content in all regions – save for Germany – as soon as the game launches later this year.
As Australia was not specifically mentioned there, there's no guarantee we'll see the DLC on local platforms here either and we expect that we may well end up lumped in with Germany. Nevertheless, it's good to see a publisher taking a more proactive strategy to potential censorship rather than just letting their game be banned outright.

The original Sniper: Ghost Warrior recieved an MA15+ classification from the ACB in 2012, but the sequel has yet to be rated.

I bought the first one on Steam.

It was alright... but then it got to some FPS, COD type shoot out on an oil rig or something. Where the game play mechanics were so horrible. Obviously not tweaked for PC. I never played again.
