Martha Is Dead will be censored on the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, according to the game's publisher, Wired Productions. It is with regret that we have had to modify the experience [on Sony's consoles], with some elements no longer playable.” The potentially “distressing” horror game will be released unedited on other platforms, such as Xbox and PC, but the company states that “it is with regret that we have had to modify the experience [on Sony's consoles] with some elements no longer playable.”
It has been our intention to contact the organization to obtain clarification on what has been changed and why it has been changed, and we will provide an update when we receive a response. The modifications, according to some fans, may be related to a scene in which you're required to surgically remove a corpse's face, which you then proceed to wear as a mask. It's a nightmare!

Though grotesquely sadistic at times, Mortal Kombat 11 and even Sony's own The Last of Us: Part II, which are both available uncensored on PlayStation platforms, don't seem to be much worse than what's shown in those games. In the meantime, we're awaiting confirmation of exactly what has been changed, so it might be best to refrain from wielding pitchforks – at least until we have the complete picture.
Martha Is Dead's physical release has been delayed as a result of the last-minute changes, but the digital version will still be available on the PlayStation Store starting February 24th. According to Wired Productions, the retail release is expected to be available within a few weeks of the game's originally planned release date, so there won't be a significant delay if you prefer to own your games on Blu-ray instead of DVD.
