As many fans have predicted, and now confirmed by Gaming Shogun, Funcom will not allow gamers from using another territory's version of the game on their local servers in order to avoid censorship:
Erling Ellingsen, Funcom Product Manager's official comment was: 'If you buy a European copy of the game you will not be able to play towards North American servers. If you buy the North American version of the game, you will not be able to play towards European servers. If you buy a European version of the game, you will be able to play on all European servers (UK, Germany, France, Spain).'
This decision will certainly force some players to play on foreign servers with their uncensored copies, and ignite the mod community to circumvent this restriction.
