Dungeon Siege 3 - Preorder Offers
 
Dungeon Siege 3 is now available for preorder on Steam, with bonuses of the first two games. Looking around the other vendors to keep things fair, Gamersgate is offering 10% off and I couldn't see it on Impulse or Direct 2 Drive.
More information.

Anyone know if the original DS thru steam will work with the ultima lazarus mod.?

Been waiting to play that one until someone finally came around with a digital download of the original DS game. Hopefully, can get ultima running and game somewhat more optimized for modern systems.

That's the big unknown question right now. I did let the U6P people know on their forums. Would be awesome of STEAM or Square Enix to give them a free copy to possibly test it with.

Game require Steam to play.

Including retails and Gamersgate, at least they are nice enough to warn about the DRM, it's usually not written on the box.

Another reason I won't be buying it.

What is Gamersgate? And well ALL Steam games require steam to run. No surprise there.

A shame GOG couldn't have gotten this, for all the STEAM haters, ;)

Well of course I expect it to need Steam if it's downloaded from there, but not if it's the retail box version.

DoctorNarrative April 9th, 2011 04:55

Times like this I wish I could get over my box addiction, but I can't.

The pre-order specifically states you get a boxed copy? Did I miss something?

My comment was about DS3 in general, not the pre-order specifically. Did you read azarhal's post?

Some people who only buy games on Steam seem completely oblivious to the fact that Steam is often forced on those who don't.

If Steam was always optional I would never bitch about it.

Woah, okay, I got it running. Automatic setup doesn’t seem to work, but just moving the files to their folders, it runs fine. So, yeah, it works on steam
One person has said The Ultima 6 Project seems to work so far with this steam version.

Having a hard time verifying this…

Not seeing it on any of the websites or box covers I can find for the game.

Do you perchance have a link?

Thx :)

Edit/update :

Well Gamersgate IS listing this:

DRM: Requires a 3rd party download and account

So it's like the Warhammer DOW II I guess, even the PC Retail version needs a STEAM account and logon to play….

Thanks for the heads up!

That's not an issue for me but good to know nonetheless ;)

(Might as well purchase through Steam then and get the earlier games too heh)

DSIII isn't the first Square published game to use Steamwork either. It is the first to be sold digitally elsewhere then Steam though. I call this an improvement, before Steamwork games were Steam exclusive for digital version.

There's a lot of chance that Deus Ex: Human Revolution will use it as well, despite there being no confirmations either.

Gamersgate is Paradox's digital distribution store.

I'm sure it's easier for dev's and publishers [and costs less, too] to have on the PC just one Steam version to patch w/ one DRM (Steam)…
as opposed to say having a Steam-version and rest are Non-Steam versions.

Some games bought at Retail that actually do require Steam:
Saints Row 2, FEAR 2, Fallout: New Vegas, DOW2 + Expansions, anything Valve does [obviously], Dark Messiah [MP portion requires Steam, while SP gives you the option of Steam or Non-Steam], AVP 2010, Kane & Lynch 2, Sup Com 2, etc.

And yes, the list is growing.

Liked DS and DS2. Was unconvinced by DS3. Digital distribution version only makes the decision easy.

Steamworks is also a DRM method. I don't like DRM, but if a game has it, I would rather it being Steamworks.
