Painkiller: H & D and Arcania: TCT will now release in May 31st for Europe / UK. No date yet reveal for US or other rest of world.

Both games original dated were 5th April 2013 for Europe / UK and US will have wait for Painkiller: H & D in later April but now US get no date now but Nordic Games will reveal new date in later time. For now May 2013 release for both games.

My friend told me he found out Nordic Games delayed Painkiller again.

Now shopto and Amazon.co.uk got 31st May for releases for both games.

Sadly? I want this game so much. FFS!!!

Noooooooooooooooooo!

Well at least we have a lot of games between now and May to keep us busy. Damn shame about it being delayed again. From January 22nd to April 5th, then from April 5th to May 31st now.

The way I really see it is a short delay (like a month) is good, because that means they need more time to polish it or to fix minor bugs which were found. A long delay, like a few months or more, is bad because then that means that they found some big problems.

Meh, just gives me additional time to rerun Hell Wars on the original Xbox. ;)

Looks like I'll be busy with Dead Island and Metro in the meantime.

Hey yeah but also Painkiller: H & D delayed from September to October 2012 then October 2012 to January 2013.

Big delayed for this game. Hope it not get more and more before cancelled. I hope May is it is time to release it. I think and agreed they want more and more time with polish and maybe because PC version released last October 2012 and got lots of negative reviews so make sense they want bring consoles better then PC? Maybe huh? :)

I agreed with both of you that lots of games in between April and May like Defiance, Dead Island: Riptide, GRID 2, Resident Evil: Revelations, Star Trek, Metro: Last Light, Dark, Injustic: Gods Among Us and more also hope Painkiller is one of them too. :)

Yeah strange as I knew US alway get games on Tuesdays and Europe with Australia on Thursdays and UK on Fridays.

It's wrong I bet. I do hope Painkiller come out soon. Been waiting for longer time since Painkiller game cancelled on original Xbox. :)

Well the official site (which is what I am going off of and hoping for) says May 31st on consoles. Let's hope that's true.

Still don't see the collector's edition on GameStop. I hope it shows up soon so I can get my pre-order in.

Updated: Game now delayed from 31st May to 28th June. WTF!!!!! Again. :/

Now Arcania: The Complete Tale get new date now is 15th July 2013 as well new game call The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief is getting date as well on 23rd July 2013. By Shopto.net. :)

I think Nordic Games release 3 new games this Summer and maybe they want to correct date for them releases and right time. :)

Don't know where you got this info from, every online game store I've checked (UK and Australian based) says the release date is May 31st. Even a mod on the Nordic Games forums confirmed the May 31st release date for Europe only yesterday.

I saw somewhere (can't remember where) that the US release date was June 4th, if anyone is interested. That could very well change.

I not sure I am totally confuse for which is real date now for this game for Europe, UK and US. Well I hope Nordic Games explain clear soon. :)

Just cannot wait for Painkiller returns. :D

He claimed it was a review copy, but he was a douchebag so who knows if he was telling the truth or not. He got himself banned from the forum though.

Looking on the official facebook page, it has been once again delayed. This time until June 28th. Amazon says August and Gamestop says July 30th though...

I went to Gamestop and asked them and they said August well. At this point why don't they just release it digitally when they are ready.

As of right now (hopefully) the official dates are:

EU: May 31st
International: June 4th

However as you said, GameStop lists it as August 30th.

I hope it wasn't delayed again. Really getting sick of these delays. The game is finished. I don't know why they are pushing it back constantly. Reason being is because the achievement list is out, and furthermore there is a guy on these boards who has played it and is on the leaderboards (who was also banned trololol).

I really hope they put up the collector's edition pretty soon on the US GameStop since it's still not there. They announced it so long ago and you still can't place a pre-order. Hopefully they will add it soon and it will still come out on the above days.

Either way, I doubt it will be cancelled but you never know.

I found this out the other day, I ordered the Collector's Edition a few months ago from a UK based retailer, and I just went to check to see if I was lucky and they had dispatched it early. Instead I found a new release date of June 28th.:eek:

Sucks to have to wait another month, but as long as the game's great I can live with it.

This game feels like it should come straight to digital. Just release it as On Demand or as an arcade game. Not a lot of people are going to pick this up at stores with all of these delays. A lot of people are going to shy away and going digital they can put it out when they are ready.

I love how everyone has different dates. Would be nice if the developers/publishers would officially announce the official dates so we can ignore all the others.

Delayed again. :/

June 28th is now the new date, most likely the EU date. That means international will probably be July 2nd or sometime around there.

Gosh darn it.

This is ridiculous, no one has the same date for this game. All I see is release dates pass and no game on the shelves. Wake me when I can actually go to the store and purchase this. Lol

It's available on Steam (for a few months now, as far as I understand). I have the game and all the DLC packs.

As for the Xbox 360 version, I heard for the public relations dude for this game that he "wouldn't have 360 copies in until mid/late June". This was back when June 4th was still the release date, so it makes sense that it got pushed back. Not sure how people are already playing it on their gamercards considering the publisher doesn't even have copies yet.

One reason why PC is better in a way. Usually everything can be put out for it quickly and easily without having to jump through all of the hoops to get it out for consoles.

Mid/late June is about the 28th and around there. So I have faith this is the final push back. If it's not, then I'm going to be very upset. But I still love Painkiller and my patience for it is eternal.

Not sure how people are playing it either. It has got to be pirated copies or something. One guy on the site here has it already apparently. Claimed it was a review copy, but this early? Right.

Of course you can't. Thats because it doesn't belong at the top.

...just another ploy to get money on prepurchases way ahead of time. Look for the actual release toward the end of the 4th quarter of this year. Around the holidays.

US will have this game by 30th July 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
Achievements list in The Complete Tale will be same from Arcania: Gothic 4 so if you had played Gothic 4 there no need re-buy since achievements list is same into The Complete Tale. It is just Nordic Games release this re-version with change main title name. :)

That is for an updates now.

Nevander
06-30-2013, 04:13 PM
Yep it's officially out in Europe. I wonder why the US version isn't coming until August 30th or later? Are they unfamiliar with NTSC discs or something?
