European Exile Set For Release This Week
9:18 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Two sources have confirmed Myst III: Exile is set for a release sometime this week in Europe. While the game was originally scheduled for a simultaneous release with North America, Ubi Soft later announced a large delay in the game's release, supposedly due to the time it will take to "localize" the game for various European languages and operating systems. Now both the Riven Unofficial Home Page and Eurogamer confirm this 3D adventure game should be out this week, though whether it will be Thursday or Friday seems to be the only subject up for dispute. Localization should be complete, and according to Jim Stephenson, Exile will contain both the country's native language and English:

Ubi Soft says that Myst III: Exile will be released in Europe on September 6. As far as I know, both the regular edition and collector's edition will be released at the same time. Please keep in mind that it may take several days for it to reach every store and for mail orders to be delivered.


Regarding languages, the latest I heard was that versions sold in each country will contain both that country's local language and English.


Eurogamer also has a giveaway scheduled for only European residents with copies of the higher-priced Collector's Edition. If you're living on that side of the pond, be sure to head over now and enter to win.
