Here's the description:

Stranger seems to be distributed by Koch Media in Germany, not CDV.

Which is weird, because CDV is originally a German company.

Today I read that there's already a patch out;

new Version number is 1.2, size 53 MB, the patch contains a fix for NVidia-based cards (8800), and contains a new multiplayer-map "Rivers of Kront" that was formerly available with the MP-DEmo, the article says.

CDV is no longer a classic publisher. They´ve redefined themselves as an independent service provider for everything needed to bring a game onto the shelf. They even say they are the only truly independent full-service provider on the German market. Just read the last couple of PRs about their restructuring.
CDV has hardly 1/10th the size of Koch Media. It´s easy to guess that guaranteed money by Koch is a good reason to partner with them instead of shouldering the risk (almost) alone by going through CDV. Koch certainly has at least as much market penetration in Germany and much more in the rest of Europe.

I see. And no, I haven't read their latest PR sheets.

Here is the link for multilingual patch v1.2


The patch is cumulative, so you don't need to install v1.1 before installing v1.2
