My nerddom kicked in and I checked out the Amazon.de page for the collector's edition of the game. I translated it and it says it includes a beta code for their next title. So...there is more PB to look forward to already!

You're referring to Arcania: A Gothic Tale (made by Spellbound). I've thought the same -- Risen is a Gothic game...they've got so much of the series in it I have to wonder what Spellbound has left to work with. And the game's been cooking for a long time now with little to show for it...I could see it being canceled even, particularly if Risen does well. I do hope it turns out to be a good game, though, then we get two Gothics, or at least two great RPGs.

The collector Edition is out there? Yay And with nice stuff like that? Ok My Precious, my precious Get ya ^^
Arcania...hmmm. For all i new now is, that the trailer doesn't look bad (good visualisations and interesting landscape), but i read that they took a lot parts from online RPG fighting systems (like WoW for example) and also the display look on the normal charakter screen from those games. Well, and some other things, which, in my opinion, have nothing to do with Gothic or an normal RPG and that is why they have no right to be there. In any case it can be a reason why i mabye dont like it nevertheless. I'm also afraid without PB they maybe forgot to put some nice gimmicks in and some fun into all those discussions with the NPCs and all those little things that made Gothic to what it was... So I'd rather trust PB and get myself this little masterpeace. Well maybe there are a view bugs left, but that has never destroyed the fun i have with all parts of the Gothic series and it never would if PB remains faithfull to itself.
But after all im not unintersted in Arcania. I like a lot RPGs, maybe Arcania could not be the Winner of this years price or so, but it may develop to a solid and good RPG if Jowood doesn't make the same mistake like with Forsaken Gods. Just producing for commerce and not producing quality. And ignoring the community after that... IF they will do that again, they really better cancel this thing as soon as possible (or they loose their face this time REALLY and better never produce a RPG again for the next 50 years...)

Anyway, thanx for the welcome ^^

EDIT: gotcha soon...Amazon my friend ^^
