May 9th, 2007, 01:03
A 75Mb v1.1 patch has been released for Two Worlds. This seems to be for the German version that should have just been released but there are no obvious patch notes on the official site (grab it under Support).
More information.

According to a Zuxxez dude (Dirk P. Hassinger, VP Business Development), the patch adds some multiplayer quests and improves the city overview map.

Do we assume that these will be included in the English release?

If God said it, then that settles it!!

He didn't say but I would assume so. Why would they not ship the latest version to the international publisher when the international versions are up for release in a few weeks, right?
BTW, the German Royal Edition is multilingual so the English version is already finished (except for these post-German-release patches). It's just a matter of a different publishing company that is responsible for the delay.

A quick one on my notebook here (which is a tad too slow for the game): Looks promising. More details after I have played it on my home PC.

First game hour looks good.

hint: to see the intro click on .wmv-file in the video folder -> a codec needs to be installed.

Come on guys, dont be so brief .

Detail, details .

How does the gameplay feel? Hopefully not like a hack&slash(or so called Action-RPGs)?

There's a first(?) German review here at 4Players. The reviewer is the same as the one who tore Gothic III a new one and he awarded Two Worlds a score of 78% saying that it's a pretty good action RPG that is better than Gothic III but not as good as Oblivion.

The main points of criticism are a lack of polish (bad collision detection that makes -not only- horse riding very annoying apparently), a lack of highlights during the course of the story, weak cutscenes, various logical bugs/issues, little response/reactiveness of NPCs to your actions, poor dungeon design, lots of recycled non-unique NPC faces, one-way dialogues almost throughout the entire game, a few really stupid quests (his words, not mine ), poor animations, no physics, no traps, no puzzles, mediocre soundtrack, no real city life, lack of complexity in character creation, tedious combat against wild critters (Gothic III boars anyone?).

And the positive stuff (some seemingly contradicting the negative aspects so there's probably a bit of both in those cases, like e.g. some really good quests and some really dumb ones etc) according to this review is… an interesting story, a huge game world, great looking landscapes & scenery & weather effects, nice selection of flora & fauna, lots of freedom in choosing a career, intuitive combat system, great choice of weapons and armor, seven factions that react to the player's actions, complex character development, tons of quests including a few really good ones, great journal, zoomable map, great (German) voice acting, horse riding & combat, comfy teleport system, three difficulty levels, five schools of magic, tons of alchemy ingredients and a good alchemy system, densely populated cities, classic & bizarre monsters, ability to improve weapons and armor.

All of that taken from the lengthy pro & con list at the end of the review.

I do not agree very often with 4Players. They are a little bit to harsh and always argueing their tests are not meant to be neutral. But it always sounds like a lame excuse, because there is no regularity in this tester's criterias - imho.

can anyone tell a bit more of how the compass works? Does it really lead you from quest to quest? like some action rpgs?
