Europe release date?

Postby Tonttutoni » Sat Dec 17, 2011 12:36 am

When is trine 2 released on xbox 360 in europe? Everywhere i've looked at the release date has been confirmed to be 21st worldwide. But today i went to xbox.com and saw the game and the release date was claimed to have been 7th of december. It was buyable and my microsoft points were taken just like they normally would be. Earlier this week when i checked the marketplace on my console however the game was not there. I'm at my friends house now and cannot check my console before sunday to see if the game begins to download. Is it really available right now or is this a mistake made by microsoft showing the game on their site too early?

It was a mistake - but indeed the game was available for a period of time today. I was able to download the Trial myself but couldn't buy, guess I was a little late.

I don't know how it will go in your case - I would assume that since you already bought it, you will be able to download the full game. In that case, I hope you will enjoy it. :)

The real release date on XBLA is the 21st of December (on PSN in North America it's the 20th of December, and Europe is TBD still unfortunately).

Do you have any idea if microsoft will punish me somehow for getting it too early even though technically i did not do anything wrong. Is it safe to play it already or should i wait until 21st?

The game still shows up on xbox.com on my download schedule in line to be downloaded. Guess ill see at sunday when i go to my home if it works. Microsoft has not returned my ms points as of now. So i guess those of us who accidentally bought it will get to play it earlier. Unless they have done something to prevent us from getting it before 21st.

I just noticed that on achievement sites there are some other players who also got the game too early due to this mistake. And they are playing it so i guess i will do the same. Thanks for your quick reply on this matter.

I'd imagine there's no harm done if you are among the few lucky who got the game too early. :D

Why European PSN version available later ?

Due to Sony ?

I can say that the reasons are out of our control. The game is fine, which can be seen from North American release today, and we have supplied both versions at the same time.

Not good, not good :(

If I buy today, from US PSN, I will be able to play with my friends who buy the game from EU PSN after the launch in Europe (maybe next week)?

It is my understanding but I have to verify this from the programmers as well.

I think the update is coming later today, like in six to nine hours or so.

I just found this,

"Frozenbyte has just confirmed that it will be releasing its Trine 2 puzzle platformer onto the PlayStation 3, via the PlayStation Network, today, December 20, in North America, and tomorrow, December 21, in Europe."

Yes it should say December 21st is the XBLA release date. :)

We have not been told a date for PSN EU at the moment, which in our experience means several weeks of waiting at least. Sorry for that.

Ok, I have the word from the programmers: Game fully supports this, but it's up to Sony how they handle the listing of games to players. So unfortunately I cannot tell a definite answer until we have tried this ourselves, which we can do only when the PSN EU version comes out. Sorry! :?

If the cross-continent multiplayer doesn't work we can arrange the swap to EU version (once it's released).
