I live in Sweden, and generally we have to wait a few weeks/months before FFG products reach our corner of the world. My question is tho, when is the US release? Is there a date set or some kind of estimation?

The announcement said Third Quarter, whatever that means.

Third Quarter means July–September.

 

I would expect this in September, since summer is generally a bad time to release anything (except children's movies).

This industry has a pretty severe GenCon fetish, though. Maybe August?

The standard deal with FFG is that they pay a premium to ship over an advanced load of a product for GenCon. The rest of the shipment will arrive a few months later at their warehouse in the US. Its then another 2 months untill we get anything over here in Europe (November time from my experience).

3rd Quarter means: "As usual". Also, I had DW Core days after it was released in the US.

Is there a pre order with 2nd edition. I was not apart of the beta but really want to see what the differences are. If there is a pre order I will definitely come up with the money for the release.

If you own Black Crusade or Only War, that's basically the difference.

Simsum you missed the totally kickin' rad part where you get to set your character sheet aside for 20 minutes and use the statblock of a moderately-powered NPC. That's new and exciting.

I'm not going to hang around here and become a routine moaner over what was lost, but I wish FFG had stuck with their original plans for DH2. I did playtests and it was vastly improved. It's a real shame that grognards persuaded them to back down from the revisions.

Well I didn't play test it at all. I heard of the new careers and exciting changes they would be making and just for that reason I'am sold on the idea. Makes me wish I bought the beta and play tested the game to at least speak my voice. Although a new sector to fight in and new careers seem pretty cool. I can live with keeping it main stream so to speak.

The newer (is that even a word?) version of the beta discouraged me and my group to buy it, cause we already had a good time with Only War.

We have no problem in different systems etc. But having 2 almost identical games (system wise) gave us that reason..

In the future, we may buy it, but not around the release date.

You may say "Oh Scyndria, you are all wrong.. There is so many new features and.."

Yep.. Features that may not make any sense/broken/F*c* the system totally..

 

As some mentioned earlier in this thread, the ability to hire stronger npc to support your mission.. Why even give the players that ability.. You could easily just gm'it to work, make it all scenematic etc.

We're getting off topic here. The op asked if there was a release date. There isn't per say, end of thread. Let your feelings about the edition go.

Seconded....

 

Inspired by the avatar of ThenDoctor I will guess the ETA by saying: "it will arrive precisely when it means to."

Thx, and what about translations in other languages? Do they take longer or are they in time with the english Europe release?
