Quote:
Vienna, AUSTRIA (August 27th 2013) – Nordic Games is excited to announce that Ancestry Of Lies, the second chapter of the point and click adventure The Raven – Legacy Of A Master Thief, is now available for PC via Steam , and will be available later this year in digital format for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

In the second chapter, players experience the ’heist’ part of the story for the first time and switch perspectives.


Ancestry Of Lies can be purchased from Steam as a Standard Edition priced £20.99 and is also available as a Digital Deluxe version for £24.99 including the official soundtrack, ‘making of booklet’, story book and printable posters. Both versions will unlock the first episode The Eye Of The Sphinx instantly and will also unlock the third episode on September 24th.

“It’s been incredibly fun to work alongside the guys at KING Art on The Raven and the reception of the game has been fantastic,” said Martin Kreuch, Producer at Nordic Games. “One of our objectives with this game was to keep players guessing, right up until the very end of chapter 3, and from the community feedback we’ve received we’re on track with that.”

“In the second chapter of the game we’ve crammed it full lots of twists and turns that will keep players guessing. This part of the story is a real gem; even though we want to progress with the genre, we also wanted to keep the classic elements that players already love,” said Jan Theysen, Creative Director at KING Art. “We’ve struck a fine balance between focusing on speeding up the gameplay and creating a deep and interesting story which charms players, but also broadens our audience.”

The Raven – Legacy Of A Master Thief is a crime tale set across 1960s Europe which will immerse players in both sides of the story, as players adopt the role of the thief and the investigator. Elements of a whodunit-mystery and a heist-story are combined as players follow The Raven’s trademark black clues.
The daring hunt across Europe is a story that features more camera shots and character animation than all of KING Art’s previous point and click adventures put together. Journeying through thrilling and dense atmospheres with the aim of catching the thief players will follow his trademark black feather clues to capture him and protect the legendary sapphire, the "Eye of the Sphinx".

To learn about the back story to The Raven, there is a free Interactive Graphic Novel available to play where players can learn about the bitter rivalry between The Raven and Legrand.

Thanks Sheriff but...

Maybe I missed it but I don't see any mention at Steam or the games web site informing how to download Part 2. I may be nutty though. Has anyone downloaded part 2 yet?

Re: The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief - Ancestry Of Lies Released Today - 08/27/13 02:45 PM

Open Steam.
Open The Raven game.
It will automatically download the game.

Play a new game directly and select Chapter 2.

luck
I can't play yet - just downloaded.

I have "The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief" - installed but not yet played.

And I must have lost track somewhere because I thought it was a complete story.

So is it just a first chapter ??

Or is it a complete story - but the first in a series ??

Thank you so much, Mag. If I hadn't read your post I would never have known about this. I followed your instructions and now Chapter 2 is up and running..
Now you know what my NEXT question to you will be.

I bought the Raven from GamersGate about a month ago and it said chapter 2 in unavailable. Do I have to buy the Raven again. Thanks

Richard,

Have you tried to start the game again?
Does it say that a new patch is available?
Posted by: kjos

Re: The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief - Ancestry Of Lies Released Today - 08/28/13 11:49 AM

Kolby,it says a new patch is available. I should click on it. It sure is slow loading. Does the patch mean it's loading chapter 2?
You were right I can play chapter 2 now

Thanks
Richard

Re: The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief - Ancestry Of Lies Released Today - 08/28/13 01:23 PM

EDIT :

I, too, bought my "Raven" from Gamersgate so I went to their site looking for Chapter 2 and couldn't find it. Or a patch woozy

However, if I launch the existing Chapter (1) I already have, then I do get the offer of a patch.
But after downloading the patch I get an error message that says the patch failed and my game files are now corrupt and I need to reinstall them frown

I have gone through this procedure twice now (obviously cleaning up afterwards each time) and got the same failure and corruption message. So it would seem pointless to try it again duh

My question now is :
Has anyone downloaded Chapter 2 from Gamersgate other than by a patch and if so, from where on their site ?? help help

Thanks very much for that clarification, MaG !! kissy

Just shows how poor my attention must have been when Gameboomers first broke news of this game redface

Thank you Anna, for the info about Steam. So it's just another website for downloading games like The Adventure Shop or Big Fish?

Re: The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief - Ancestry Of Lies Released Today - 08/28/13 07:14 PM

Mad, maybe you should delete Raven and download it again. I played the game about a month ago and deleted it. I downloaded it again and used the patch with no trouble at all. Took about three hours to install the patch. I use revo uninstaller for all my games.

Hi kjos - And thanks for replying smile

I obviously didn't state my case properly in my original post, sorry.

I have already uninstalled and reinstalled The Raven (Chapter 1) and tried the patch, TWICE, but the patch failed both times.

It looks like I'll have to try Customer Support at GamersGate and see if they can sort it crazy

Cheers.

Mad whistle

EDITING again !! :

I had another thought. I tried disabling my anti-virus before attempting to download the patch - and this time the patch apparently worked happydance

But I still have questions laugh

Is there any way I can tell if I do have the first two chapters now - without actually playing ?? As I would prefer not to play any of the game until I have all three chapters.]

Cheers.

Kathy, when you start up the game again, check to see if it tells you there's a patch available. Install the patch -- that's Chapter 2.

Re: The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief - Ancestry Of Lies Released Today - 08/30/13 12:24 PM

I got mine from Adventure Shop and when I tried, it killed in 15 minutes. I had to reinstall it (takes too long) and then reinstall the update and the same thing happens. I did this with and without firewall and antivirus. They just told me to do what I already said I did. I have a lot of time this weekend and want to play, so hope they tell me what to do. Don't like paying for 3 chapters and only playing 1/3 of it. Ant suggestions?

Re: The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief - Ancestry Of Lies Released Today - 08/30/13 12:26 PM

I was considering getting this from Gamersgate, but based on all the problems people are having, I think I'll wait and see if GOG gets the game in its entirety. smile

Re: The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief - Ancestry Of Lies Released Today - 08/30/13 12:58 PM

venus,I got my game ftom GamersGate and didn't have any problems at all. They give you free points for a free game also.

Once I was informed that the "patch" was actually "Chapter 2" .... and after I also realised that I needed to disable my anti-virus during the download of the patch .... all ended up being fine with GamersGate laugh

But I did find it rather confusing not to have seen it mentioned beforehand anywhere in big letters that the patch was the next chapter whistle

Re: The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief - Ancestry Of Lies Released Today - 08/31/13 10:06 PM

Thanks for the info, kjos and Mad. Since I just got Memoria, I'm still going to wait a little while on this one. If GOG doesn't get it, or if I decide to get it sooner then its complete release, I'll definitely go for the Gamersgate version, however, as it's DRM free. thumbsup

I have the ShinyLoot version, and that's also DRM free thumbsup
