Can we get a gore toggle yet?
Since before the game even launched, various Funcom reps have been telling us that the ability to remove the absolutely unnecessary dismemberment and excessive blood as an option similar to the nudity switch was “definitely coming”, “being looked at closely”, “agreed with the devs”, or “in a future update” - and yet, up until now, people with very valid reasons to not want exaggerated explosive gibbing have had to rely on a 3rd-party mod. Well, now Litman has gone off to travel the wilds, and abandoned his mod, and no-one else is willing to pick it up - and no-one should have to!
It is insane that this feature was not there on day one, and even more so that it has been admitted as being considered, relatively easy, and important, by Funcom for years with no actual action being taken.
Some people get squeamish about nudity, and America doesn’t like it, so Funcom makes sure that their sensibilities are protected - but people with Haemophobia, invasive thoughts, mental issues, PTSD, or actual fans of Conan lore who know that the original books were not full of people exploding into pieces every 2 minutes, are SOL? Why? (I have asked Funcom directly why they feel excessive gore is essential to the game, but nudity isn’t, despite the opposite being true in the source material, but they have not answered)
So, can we have our oft-promised gore switch yet?
