Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

The game's no longer on sale
It says that it's just temporary because they're working on some updates. What do you think that will happen?

We do not think, we know. gog working now on the update of SR1. When they will finish, updated distributive of SR1 will be available on Steam for sale. On gog itself, SR1 is still available for sale.

Do you have the link to this info by any chance? I can't find anything for some reason.

I provided in my thread the direct quotes from the words of the chief of the gog dev team which is working now on the update for SR1. There are no other links now. If you want, you can try to write into gog tech support and, perhaps, they will provide for you the needed contacts. Or will not provide. I do not know.

Are the other games getting updated too?

I sure hope so, this series needs some love. Maybe Square will notice the attention this games still gather and perhaps they'll consider the possibility of releasing some sort of HD Collection.

Forget about HD collection. They will keep the original format of games as it was released at the start of century. gog will just add some wrappers for the work of games on the newest OSs, no more.

Yeah, you're right. Looking back at a few HD compilations of some other franchises, they just end up looking decent at best. It'll be best if the og's just get updated. That's enough for me to be happy.
open sales in 2021?

I think that they will release their important (as SE said on main page) product very soon.

It will have the name Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver Degradated Edition because they will return original rpl videos of low quality with black stripes as one can see now in BO1.

Also they provided at least two additional bags, so - if they will not fix them (90% of probability to not) - no one can play in SR1 more than 20 minutes due to overflow of sound mixer and forced exit from the game by pressing the button in the dialog menu in the background which will lock the game process.

Why would they do that? What's the reason? :/
We can play the game well thanks to patches/mods of people like you, I really don't understand

I can suppose these reasons:
1) some problems with legality (using of bink api by SE without buying its license);
2) forcing gog to fulfill their contract by which they must provide ONLY their product;
3) unwilling or inability of gog dev team to provide the product which can concurent with already existed fan product even using provided for them sources of this fan product (their position - they will provide exact copy of the original distributive, though they already corrupted the main exe file by themself introducing at least two new bugs into the game; also now they do not want to include into the game distributive the OFFICIAL localizations by the same reason, though I said them that their info is wrong - the original distributive of the game that was released in 1999 had 1+6 OFFICIAL localizations; i.e. they just do not want to do their work on the professional level).

I had no problems with running SR1 on W10 w/o any patches. And it has not even crashed once, I have about 17 hours in it. I don't really know why a port is so unstable on same OS. Hope they will fix it. Also hope steam cards will appear - so we can have backgrounds that has Raziel or Kain :zagpls: Would be nice :D

Not gonna lie, that'll be cool. I just hope they don't ♥♥♥♥ up with the patches.

I also do not have technical problems with SR1 (excepting 100% crash on the chrono movies at the end of game in the case of using unpatched game, though exactly it is already patched, because official distributive already includes fan made bink patch), but now, after playing about one year with the enhanced features of updated version of bink patch, it is uncomfortable for me to play in this game without: mouse support, some kind of dynamic (and correct) music playback, possibility to skip ingame cutscenes, possibility to load the game at the same level when it was saved, Debug Menu (Swim Fly Mode), possibility to play in the game with already solved stupid block puzzles, possibility to use additional hotkeys, may be something else. I did not see all of these things when I tested gog product.

Hopefully they bring it back before the sale ends. In case anybody missed it, all the LoK games are on sale right now for like 97 cents I think.

Had a random hankering the other day to play this game again so my phone probably read my mind and notified Squeenix who then took it off the store just to mess with me. Sorry guys.
