    If so, you may find <a href="http://forum.deepsilver.com/forum/showthread.php?p=374109">this Risen Dialogue Video</a> informative. It showcases the player character in a pretty lengthy dialogue with some sort of guard. I'm not really qualified to comment much on it, seeing as my understanding of the language is limited at best, but I'm sure some of our resident Germans will have commentary.

    They're probably planning a European release which includes the UK probably. Maybe a NA Release like 6 months from that release. Speculating.

    SUPER CODEX EXCLUSIVE TRANSLATION
    by yours truly

    Rogue Guard: Where is that bastard?
    Hero: Uh, what?
    Rogue Guard: That stupid cunt Clay has left me waiting here for hours now! It's that dick's turn to stand watch already!
    Hero: So, uh, you are like a guard here?
    Rogue Guard: Yeah, and I have been guarding way too long already! This moldy swamp earth is getting to my feet...
    Hero: Well, where is this Clay-dude?
    Rogue Guard: Beats me. Somewhere in the camp, staring into nothing lazily I bet. If he doesn't show up soon I'll bail.
    Hero: What's there to guard here?
    Rogue Guard: The Swamp Peasant, man. Without him things would be pretty grim here.
    Hero: Well, but who'd want to steal something here?
    Rogue Guard: I ain't worried about the people in the city; they stay away from here. But those damn beasties everywhere! If we weren't careful we'd get swarmed by boars and worse things.
    Hero: So what do you mean by "things would be grim here?"
    Rogue Guard: Dude, just look around you! Does this look like the paradise to you? No bar, no bitches, nothing - just stinking swamp. All we really have left here is boozing. Without the Swamp Peasant's beer there'd be nothing at all, got it?
    Hero: Uh... can I learn something from you?
    Rogue Guard: Pfff ambitious, huh? Used to be like that too. Well, apart from fighting there's a few nifty skills you should possess: sneaking, lockpicking and pick pocketing. I can teach you all those handy things.
    Hero: Great! I'll go see about Clay.
    Rogue Guard: Drag that guy here! I've had it with him, you know!

    That's the worst translation I've ever seen in my life. Thanks for nothing.

    That translation is basically ok, the dialogue obviously "clicks" better in German.

    Sounds 100% Gothic-like to me. Which is good.

    It's better than The Witcher.

    EDIT

    OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE get the voice-actor who did the Hero in Gothics back! Motherfucker, the protagonist sounds like an utter pussy, and is voiced by the guy who used to do the more cowardly characters in previous Gothics. For fuck's sake! Pay the guy a zillion dollars, threaten to kill his familiy, just get him back! Fuck fuck fuck.

    PrzeSzkoda why are you raging? For sure we'll have a localised version here in Poland and I bet the guy from previous G will voice the main protagonist.

    I only played the German versions of Gothics, and that's what I'm planning to do with this one. Used it as a way of learning German. Thanks to these games, I now know how to be offensive in Deutsch!

    See, Jasede? That's the way you should have translated it.

    Improved Translation

    Guard: Where stays this dirt-guy?
    Hero: How please?
    Guard: Clay the old dirt-pig lets me wait here since hours. That big should me finally relieve.
    Hero: You push here watch?
    Guard: Yes damn and that already way too long. I am getting slowly already softened up feet from the moldy ground here.
    Hero: Where exactly is this Clay?
    Guard: What know I? Somewhere in the camp and laying lazily around in the place. When he not soon here on-crosses then I punch simply off.
    Hero: What gives here so important to guard?
    Guard: The swamp builder man. Without him it sees darkly here.
    Hero: Who should here what steal want?
    Guard: When you the people of the city mean, there I make me no worries. They come not here here. But the darn pests everywhere! When we not up-pass we will overrun by boars or worse.
    Hero: What mean you with "darkly"?
    Guard: Older now look you now around here. Sees this maybe like the paradise or what? No bar, no women, nothing. Only stinking swamp. All that us here stays is the boozing. Without the beer from the swamp builder would be here nothing anymore, understand you?
    Hero: Can I what from you learn?
    Guard: Ambitious, what? Was I too once. Away-seen from fight give it a pair nice talents that you on-have should. Sneaking, locks opening, pocket thievery. All these handy things can I you to-bring.
    Hero: Good. I see what Clay right now makes.
    Guard: Take him here here. I have the snout strikethrough full, understand you?
