    You can always install and start the game in English/German/French/Polish/Russian no matter which version you have bought.

    Hello sorry if you distrubo, but do you know if there is an italian community of this game?

    #50921

    Damn, so no boxes in N. America?

    Oh well. Already pre-ordered the Steam version. All I really want out of a deluxe edition of a game usually is the soundtrack anyway. And boy, is it looking like an awesome soundtrack.

    Thanks for letting us know about the Retail versions.
    It’s a bummer to know there is no special edition or limited edition in english version for us in Belgium or the Netherlands. My german is a little rusty…

    @arnout Ok thanks, then i take the collector 🙂 and just to be sure, with the collector there is those 2 scenario right ?

    it says : 2 Codes für digitale Zusatzinhalte o Das Szenario „Der Aufstieg der Elfen“, welches den Spieler zurück in den Herzholzwald schickt, den man dereinst in Age of Wonders bereisen konnte. Bis zu 6 Spieler messen sich auf dieser Karte o Das Szenario „Drachenthron“ führt den Spieler an die Küste des Meeres der Flammen, wo ein mörderischer Krieg um ein Drachen-Ei entbrannt ist.

    I think it says there is elven resurgence and dragon’s throne but i don’t understand german ^^’

    Still the booklet and the covertext is in German.
    In the boxes of AoWII and AoWIISM the text are in English. Althou I don’t have the limited edition or special edition.
    I’m still thinking which one I will order…

    Boxed version in Hungary?<br>
    Nice! However, I didn’t expect it, so I already pre-orderd the game on steam ;(

    You can probably cancel it, no?

    No. I already bought the game on steam. There is no way to cancel ; (
    It’s how steam works.

    Okay I caved in and finally ordered the physical German Collector’s Edition, after already pre-ordered the Steam version. The Steam key will go to my brother, so I am afraid I won’t be offering it in a raffle 🙂

    Kind regards,

    So I have to order it from a website in a language I don’t understand at all? That’s just great.
    Guess I won’t be buying the game then.

    Very excited for the game! Shame the LE is not in English, this prevents me from buying that version, but I’ll still get it on Steam regardless.

    Although at first glance it seemed to me you would lose a large market by not bringing out AoW in English, but since it’s on Steam I doubt this hardly matters. Maybe it can be added later, if the game turns out to be a success (with help from Mojang???)
    There is one thing I find a shame, the lack of attention in the Netherlands itself for a beautiful game like this which may very well be the best created by ‘us’ (And yes, with all due respect, even better then Killzone).

    I also want to play the game with my brother on 1 PC, so I’m hoping for scenerio option of multiple human wizards on 1 PC is still available?

    Can’t wait for the game to arrive!

    Yup, that’s still a possibility, you can have multiple human and AI players in a scenario 🙂

    Still somewhat dissapointed by the lack of english booklet&special edition though, as most here. Because I’ve been thinking, and while I understand the decision not to partner with anyone to ship the game to the UK or the US, US and UK buyers would have no problem ordering an english edition from the game from Amazon.de (I’ve had experience ordering from the US and UK amazon). so really there is rather significant market to be lost there, judged by these posts alone.

    Did notice the game on the Dutch website bol.com (not the LE):

    Earlier in this thread Lennart Sas said that they would have to self publish to make an english edition. They did not want to, or could not afford to, do that so therefore no boxed english edition.

    Argh! Stupid living in the USA where physical copies of PC games don’t sell anymore…

    Me comprende only English, but froggie is at least slightly understandable due to de William de Bastardo and de Norman robber barons.

    So, is there any reason why I should not order the French retail edition rather than the German one – I would prefer to get both bonus senarios.

    I wouldn’t mind buying the German version for the LE, but I really do want an English guide book to put in pride of place next to my AOW1 guide book… In English >_<

    Steam will be fine for me although I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on some of those goodies anyway.

    Just wondering. When will we be able to download the game from Steam? Some games let you download it the day before (or thereabouts). Just wondering if this was the case for AoW3.

    Can’t wait. You guys are amazing

    I won’t pretend I’m not EXTREMELY disappointed that these physical editions are not being offered in the USA. Sorry, I’m not passing judgment, but it seems like a cop-out when even if, I concede, there are percentage-wise more European PC gamers than American, at a little over 60% for Germany and 50% for the UK vs 40% for the US, the fact that we have over 150 million gamers in total compared to the UK and Germany’s combined less than 100 million suggests that a game like this would sell FAR better over here. The big chains like Gamestop and Best Buy would likely have put at least a few copies on the shelves, and spread out over their tens of thousands of stores that adds up to quite a few. As a fan of the franchise from the first game onward, this is a bitter blow. Just expressing my opinion and voicing the disappointment of one gamer. One of a great many over here in the States.

    Information about Polish edition is wrong, please fix. You guys missed point 3.

    1. Game
    2. Guide
    3. Great Book of Army <- i do not know what this is exactly, probably bestiary.
    4. Poster
    5. DLC: Dragon Throne
    6. Sountrack <- only one CD not two
    7. Stickers
