Ok, here are a few points addressed in the PC Action preview of Drakensang. I don't know what is already known, so I just post everything I think is interesting.
Warning: Potential spoilers!
You don't have to know the first three DSA games to enjoy Drakensang
The preview version they played at the developers Berlin studio was 80% complete.
In the beginning your character travels to the capital Ferdok to meet with an old friend called Ardo. But he is missing and after a few inquiries you find out that there have been several murders in Ferdok and that your friend is somehow involved.
Later on the player will learn that Ardo is dead and stumble across a big conspiracy.
You may play elves, dwarfes and humans
You do not need to understand the pnp system to play the game.
There won't be day/night cycles
You walk from one area into another by using a map (like BG oder NWN2 I think)
There will be 50 locations, all about 1km^2
There are random encounters
The game looks and feels like a BG
Six person party: Four heroes, one guest and a summoned creature
You may 'store' your characters in one location and they level even if you are not using them (see NWN2 or Kotor)
you may pause combat at any time
There are 40 spells
Some of them have been modified (for example the 'five-minutes' spells)
You can hurt your own party members if you are not careful enough
Not all dialogues will be synchronized
There will be only on ending but a few ways to get there
