Sacred 2 Gold

Release date is a HOAX
The release date "21 Dec 2012" is a lie, the REAL release date for EU is November 7, 2008 and
NA is November 11, 2008.

Steam does this a LOT if you haven't noticed. Its the date it was released on Steam

By the way.... what difference does it make?

Also just a FYI the wiki link shows only the release date for the Base game.. not the Gold Pack. They even mention it on the page for the DLC beleing releaced as the Gold pack.

Link to refrence: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_2:_Fallen_Angel#Ice_.26_Blood

So the release date here is correct so I don't know why your claiming it to be a houx.

Last i checked "Sacred 2" and "Sacred 2 Gold" are 2 diffrent entities.. Base game w/ no dlc and the base + dlc.
That's the date it was re-released on Steam. All Steam games go by the date they were first released on Steam rather than the date they were actually released. It's not a hoax if it's factual, and it's not like they could fool anyone, anyways since all people have to do is Google.

No, they don't, this is usually done when a money grab is involved. However, I'm not familiar with this particular title so maybe not in this case.

Um, sorry dude, but if you check the release dates that Steam lists for Realms of Arkania which is a DOS era game, you also will see it is the release date for Steam catalog. So this isn't something hoax-like, this is Steam standard procedure.

It says for Realms of Arkania: Star Trail , July 13, 2013 . Now anybody and everybody who knows it was considered an ancient classic RPG, knows that game is over a decade older than that. These games are two decades old, ran on DOS to start, pre-windows era, and came out circa 1992-1993.

So understand, Steam sees the release dates as the days the game is released to Steam availability in its catalog. Period.

I suggest that whenever you see a game and want to know its release date, just look it up in wikipedia, and it will normally give you a full history with dates on the game. It isn't Sacred publishers fault, it's the fault of Steam.

And for what it is worth, the graphics on Sacred 1 would beat almost any tablet game out there. So the release date isn't the only thing that matters, it would also matter what platform you like, and whether you care about gameplay etc.

How could I have been such a fool, and not seen it? It's all obvious to me now thanks to you, Lord Avarice (a clever play on words, there ^.~ I can see nobody's getting one over on you). It's almost like by selling these games at a fraction of the price they were originally released at during big Steam sales these games have a longer life span than they deserve, and end up making even MORE money than they would have had they never gone on sale on Steam.

Those sick, evil ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥S! This game would have faded into relative obscurity if it weren't for those crazy kids at Valve! Just what do they think they're doing? Trying to revitalize the video game industry or something?

freak
They are a distribution platform. If they said something was available prior to their even being existing as a distributor they would be opening themselves up to lawsuits.

As for the price, that is decided by the game producers not Steam. Steam only takes a percentage of the sale.

I remember it was re-released on Steam on that date. You can take the tinfoil hat off.
Savitr Jul 2, 2014 @ 2:28pm 
Yeah Steam always states the day it was released on Steam which may or may not coincide with the games original release date.

Steam does that all the time.
It's the date it came on Steam.
It's not a hoax; it's just the way Steam does things.

I actually can't believe the game is that old. I figured 2010 or later. Good game.

Descent is correct dated : http://store.steampowered.com/app/273570/

Doom 2 is correct dated too : http://store.steampowered.com/app/2300/

Thanks anyway OP. Hoax may have been to strong of a word, but again thanks for revealing the difference between the actual release date and the Steam release date. This particular type of issue matters to me.
