The reason for showing something at this exhibition was mentioned in the interview: DSA has an installed base of 7 Mio players.
Certainly most of them are no hardcore computer/video gamers. Making them aware in advance to watch out for a PC game connected to their hobby is good business practice.
This also explains why the interview repeatedly stresses how close they want to stay to the source material.

I don´t think there´s anything to worry about. Radon Labs´ two older full price games both received good reviews. Now they have their own technology (-> saves budget), an official license of a proven RPG system, the 4 original DSA story authors, and a new trainee responsible for fact checking and ruleset consistency. IMHO the chances are slim that Drakensang won´t be at least "pretty good".
