Collector's Edition

Postby Dthen » Fri Oct 28, 2011 6:59 am (link to this post)

I remember reading a while back about the possibility of a collector's edition.
Is there any news on this?

Ooh, excellent! That's good to hear, I'm glad it's definitely still happening.

Is this a digital Collector's Edition, or a physical box with goodies? If latter, would upgrading Steam pre-orders to this physical CE be possible?

It's a digital Collector's edition, but for example Focus Home Interactive is offering in Europe a boxed Collector's edition with additional physical artbook. The game and soundtrack are essentially the same in Steam's Collector's edition (and all other possible Collector's edition goodies which can be digitally distributed), but of course we can't hand out physical stuff with the digital version.

Edit: digital artbook may be added to all CE's. However I don't promise anything before it's sure!

Thanks for quick reply, I have two additional questions.

Will the boxed Collector's Edition contain a CD with the soundtrack?
Will the soundtrack in the digital Collector's Edition be distributed in a lossless format?

It's only digital version in the retail box, ie. on the game DVD.

I'm not entirely sure other than it will be very high quality. Nevertheless it's same quality as in the retail version.

Have you considered giving a pdf version of the artbook to the Steam Collector's edition? I think new Deus Ex did it this way without problems.

We may not be able to do this unfortunately. Hard to say yet though, remains to be seen...

Unfortunately there's no way to pre-order on PSN (nor XBLA). Sorry for the longer wait!

Thanks for the answer. Too bad though, it would make my decision much easier. I want to try Trine 2 as soon as possible, but I don't want to miss anything.

However it seems Focus Home Interactive isn't the distributor in my country (Czech republic), so it's back to Steam hah.

Anyway, if the pdf version of the artbook goes through in the end, let us know. It would be a great bonus :).

The digital artbook has taken steps forward to happen, but I still need to confirm it.

For those of us who already own Trine 1 and have pre purchased Trine 2. If you release a CE on Steam can we get a free upgrade? :)

Trine 2 is already so cheap, getting free stuff would only make me feel like I stole something :P

I'd love to preorder from Steam, however the physical collector's edition is too much of a temptation so my question is this:

Do I lose anything (except the access to the beta) if I buy the physical copy instead of a preorder through Steam, be it content, badge, or anything similar?

There might be some preorder-only TF2 hats coming to Steam :)

If that's all I'm missing, then I'm quite fine with a physical edition, bring on the release date! (tho on that matter, seems that Pan Vision: http://www.panvision.com/1/1.0.1.0/33/4/?item=prod_prod-s1/51889 "knows" the release date (or is that only an estimate?) but the shops I asked from don't know anything yet.)

The release dates which retailers post are estimates, as there is no release date set. (and will not be set before console channels do so). This is completely out of our hands, unfortunately, but December is still a good guess :D

Is there going to be a physical release in NA at all? Haven't seen anything on it. I love having boxes, even though I already preordered it on Steam so it'd be purely for show.

At the moment we have distribution agreed only to Quebec, and that will be most likely French box, although the game itself will include all languages. :)

We keep looking for larger NA distribution but I must say it's unlikely - there's not really publishers who would like to pick up only retail deal.

That said, if you get European Amazon's for example to ship to NA then it's one way to get the boxed edition. I don't know will US Amazon stock from the EU counterparts, but we'll try to make that happen.

I've been unable to import games through amazon.co.uk. Just able to order CDs through them. Not sure if the others would let me. Amazon.com won't ship some games to me either. Not sure what 'requirements' there are for what they ship and don't, tried to find out but couldn't find the info.

-sigh- I'll keep my fingers crossed. It's not that I need to buy it, since I already preordered it on Steam and will buy it on PS3 the day it comes out and eventually 360 as well. Would be nice to have a pretty box and other extras for it anyway, because I'm obsessive with Trine.

Numerous stores (Amazon etc) have the Trine 2 CE containing a sountrack CD, i was under the impression that is was digital download only?

Placed my preorder for a CE at shopto.net - Apparently they are ok with shipping it to the United states.

It'd be awesome if we started a list to see who is carrying the physical Collectors edition and if they ship outside europe.. That'd be sweet.
