Thanks for the heads up! Can't wait to try it.

I have the same (fiber optic), but I get pretty close to max DL speed, around 11-12 MB/s with Steam. Origin seems to be a little faster, steady 12-13 MB/s.

100 megabits is equivalent 12.5 megabytes, which is pretty close to my Steam DL speed. Maybe I'm located close to their servers on the West Coast? I suppose the Internet connection probably fluctuates a bit above and below 100 mbps.

Incidentally, the Risen 2 demo requires 6.5GB disc space, but the download package from Steam is only 3.6GB. It took a little under 4 minutes to complete the download in my case.
