PB never sold much world wide in comparison to the German sells. This is the main cause for not marketing Risen 3 world wide. It never paid off in the past.
The Gothic and Risen games are only insiders' tips world wide.
In Germany many PC gamers play these games, even if they are not CRPG fans in the first place.
Yep and Germans love sims like "Landwirtschafts-Simulator 2015"

My hopes for Risen 3:
- Magic system from Risen 1
- Add Voodoo possessions from Risen 2
- Add companions system from Risen 2
- TOTALLY remove anything resembling the boss fight of Risen 1
- Not too long, not too short… 40-60 hours is fine
- Please test it well! Have it 2 years in 'Steam Early Access' if you want.

As far as I know the German Risen "First editions":
(regular) First Edition
Collector's Edition
Shadow Lord Edition


are DRM free and have no Steam key. I don't know if the English localization is included.

I can't seem to find the retail version on any UK sites…

I know too many questions lol
Any german retail version has only one language: German.
There is no Steam, Origin or uPlay key on it, it's DRMfree.

Multilanguage PC retail versions are not available for preorder yet. Still no word about them. Console versions are available for preorder.

All digital download PC versions contain Steamworks DRM. Practically you buy and receive Risen 3 Steam key and then download the game from Steam.

@HiddenX and @joxer

Thanks for the info.

I would like to get the CE edition for the map but I also prefer to to have it on steam etc for cases where I loose the cds lol

Anyway it looks like I have to wait a bit in order to get the English retail version.

I'm not sure if this is real deal, but this swiss store seems to offer multilanguage CE and ShadowLord edition:
http://www.wog.ch/index.cfm/details/…ectors-Edition
http://www.wog.ch/index.cfm/details/…w-Lord-Edition

For what I've heard Shadow Lord edition is german only.
Either sources didn't tell the truth or this store doesn't have a proper info.

CE edition there however could really be multilanguage (but manual still on german).
And that's the only such offer out there. Be patient, there's still plenty of time before the release.
Forget buying there as they ship only to Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

And now I see that on amazon.de also says this on german collector edition:
Sprache: Englisch, Deutsch (sprache means language, englisch is obvious, deutsch is german).

Man, this got totally complicated. I'm definetly gonna ask on deepsilver forum to clear this once and for all. Hell if german CE contains also english dub, I might still order it. Amazon.de ships to all EU countries (not all but most of stuff).

Deep Silver handling of Risen 3 retail release outside of Germany is just abysmal. They seem to be banking on the German audiance only - do they (Deep Silver) know something we don't?

Risen 3 looks exactly like Risen 2 which isn't a good thing. They're using the exact same engine and the game has been built within two years. I don't have high hopes for this one and it's releasing near Shadows of Mordor, Lords of the Fallen and Dragon Age: Inquisition which are all bigger titles and AAA. Not to mention it's only on last gen.

This will probably only sell to its fan base now. Most other people are probably still playing Original Sin which will tide them over to the other RPG's coming out later in the year. I know I'm doing that….

Well I'm not.

Oh btw… Not buying Shadows of Mordor as I already have it on my good old C64.
I'd rather play more of the same Risen 2 than let anyone to milk me with overmilked Tolkien's book.

Lords of the fallen? Never heard of it.

https://games-konsolen-shop.de/Risen…ds::43567.html

So two shops are saying:

Game Speech: German, English
Game Subtitles: German, English, French, Italian, Spanish(?)
Manuals etc.: only German

Deep Silver Moderator says:
All DRM-free Risen 3 retail editions are only in German … hmmm

Your loss bro.

The other games you mention have very different types of gameplay compared to the Risen series. I don't see them as being direct competition to Risen 3. Especially since none of those titles are being released until October at the earliest.
