It looks like it will be longer before this game becomes available. I sure hope it's worth the wait.

Thanks John. The game is finished, so I'm guessing it might have something to do with a packaging delay. The U.K. release (which includes the collector's edition) is due two weeks after the N.A. version 8/14.

Hi,

Well I won't be able to play this one. I send an email to them asking if it would work on Windows 2000 and they told me no.:(

Sorry VHL frown . A lot of new games are going to XP/Vista only it seems. But some folks find ways to get around it, so here's hoping you'll be able to play it in the future.

Hmm, strange. This game has already been released in Europe (mainland) for weeks now. I have seen it several times in shops. I'll see if I can pick up a copy this weekend.

That's right, and it got good reviews in Germany. If you do pick it up, I know I'd love to hear what you think of it!

Well, to put it mildly, the game is gorgeous. Stunning visuals, great gameplay, well balanced. I have been playing for a few hours a day during one week. And it feels awesome. You can go however you want, dashing in and attack or the sneaky way or just bombard them with spells or take them out with bows.
The delay for US release is probably because it needed patching, alot of it. they are currently on patch 1.4. This one will be included in the US version released this summer.

Thanks Niku'a for coming back and telling us about it! I've heard it compared to Oblivion - is that the impression you get?
Gamestop shows it shipping 8/21.
Hey Karsten, the collector's edition has the cool metal box you like. laugh

Darn Niku'a...I wish it would work on Windows 2000 but alas it won't. Maybe someone will find a way for it to work for Me....who know.:(

I have read to many threads that XP has issues with a lot of games and as for Vista my computer magazines tell me to not be in a hurry to get it so there you have it.

smile Thank you Nickie for telling me about the Collector's Edition having the cool metal box smile Really nice it was smile

Yes, the game have been out in Germany for months, it seems.
However, as I live in Denmark I'm waiting for the UK version of the game to be shipped. I think it will shipped/released on the same day as the US one, August 21st?? [The publisher is German so it is not surprising that the game camoe out first in Germany...].

On the Zuxxex forums, I've seen an international version mentioned?? Does anyone know if this is available in a cool metal box, too, or if the UK version Collector's Edition will have a cool metal box also?? [I could order it from the US, but the tax and the shipping would be ½ the game price - or more...].

XP is very stable today, and should be not having trouble with newer games, built for it, such as Two Worlds. XP plays some older games like Baldur's Gate, Gothic etc. very well. Most games released for the PC seems to have bugs in them, but that's hardly due to WIN XP, but because some developers release the game too soon... XP may have troubles with some older games, but you can always use Dosbox to play them.

nickie, I can't say that it does compare to Oblivion, because I haven't played that one. I do know that if you want to get a feel of the game, there will be a demo (1.3 GB) released on August 21.
I am currently level 25 and died a total of 4 times. As long as I don't get surrounded there is no problem. Also when you die you don't have to reload a save, you'll simply resurrect on a nearby marker.

Karsten, here is a link for the collector's edition being released in the U.K. - I think a week after the N/A release.

Niku'a, thanks about the demo - I just don't do them because of my dial-up. Instead I like to vicariously see it through your eyes. grin

Thank you, Nickie. It is nice to know I always can trust the boomers smile to come with answers to my questions. I'll be checking out the demo first, though, I think. Thank you for letting us know about that smile , Niku'a smile Very nice smile

Great Karsten, let us know what you think. I wasn't going to pay the extra for that metal box, but it sure is something to consider - maybe it could actually keep the game safe from my destructive dogs! puppy lol

Lost in the Arizona Desert
Hi all,
Well I was in Phoenix with some time to kill and stepped into a local Gamestop store. PC Games are now relegated to one tiny rack called Windows games and there is hardly anything worth looking at on the rack. I'm rambling though. Anyway, I saw the Game Guide for Two Worlds sitting on the counter and asked the clerk about the game and he said it was due in their store on 22 Aug. However, the fact that the Game Guide is already out is a hopeful sign that the game might arrive on time.

I have pre-ordered the Royal Edition from Germany...they better not push it forward again. Grr...especially since I have already paid and this is an eBay seller. I hate dealing with PayPal and refunds, should that edition be cancelled altogether.

Really? I got a mail from the place I pre-ordered saying it might be delayed til the 20th of September. Maybe that´s just the special edition. frown

I think it's really weird because I have an English version of the game and not the German one. It should already be able for purchase in Sweden if I can get it here. And I have seen French versions as well.

I know, even the regular version isn´t released here yet. Which I find quite strange because it has already been released in other parts of Europe. On the other hand, it could also be because it is the 360 version, and not the PC.

I stopped at the local Gamestop today. They told me Two Worlds will be out on Friday the 24th. Why not today? Because Bioshock is being released today and Two Worlds wanted a day all by itself. I reserved a copy and a guide. I hope Friday will be it.
