Chris also explained that the CD Logo will most likely be added to the box before it ships, so fear not. ;)

Thanks Chris!

Very, very cool. I like the way how Kain looks like he's on crack when he's ripping everybody to shreds.:rolleyes:

Finally, a game that has a fine-looking boxart. It will definitely catch people's eyes.

Thanks for the news Umah.

Excellent. I knew as soon as I saw that picture that it would be the cover art, but it's cool to see what it really looks like =).

I asked Chris about the PAL version and he said the cover of LOKD was unknown at this time. Sekhmet from www.legacyofkain.de was provided with this image (http://www.legacyofkain.de/index_def.php?lok=packshots&num=17) from Anubis (not Anubis_Orr) who obtained it from the Game Convention in Germany.

It's common for both versions to differ in box art, so I would expect the PAL version to look like what is on Sekhmet's site.

hmm.....you must be american then cos the only PAL version with a worse cover is BO1.
THe PAL covers were kick ass (especially SR2 and SR1 if you have the hologram one that moves between spectral and material)


The pics on that german site are just mock ups as far as I know. Amazon or gameplay were using that picture from the day they put defiance up on their site (remember it was the first art available)



but yeah it's a pretty cool cover. I prefer the artwork that's on the other wallpaper on the site though personally. I wouldn't be suprised if they used that for the PAL boxart actually. BO2 got treated like this. You americans got the crappy one with kain crouching holding the reaver and over here we got the one with kain holding the guy by the throat.:D

Very cool, I would like to see one with the PC-CDROM logo, too.

I prefere the one at the top of the thread to the one that used to be on the site. I'd like to see the same cover in the UK. The red really gets to the point of the game. (Blood!)

You probably won't see one until after the console versions are released. Crystal Dynamics typically ports to the consoles first. (Reason being, I believe that's where their broader audience is).

I really hope that the PAL- version doesn't look like that crappy one shown in the Lok.de site... That red cover is so much cooler... Damn, I really hope that Europeans will have that same cover... Please, PLEASE, PLEASE CHRYSTAL DYNAMICS AND EIDOS!!! Make us fans in here happy! ( Even though the game is more important, but still...)

But anyhow, thanks for sharing the information!

EDIT: I just realized that the PAL-box was not official... So the hopes are up!

I wouldn't say that, the PAL Box Art of Soul Reaver 2 was the same as the NTSC.

I hope Chris will pass on our (european) thoughts to the team to reconsider the current box art, so we will get the ass kicking box art from the NTSC too :)

And if not, this (http://www.legacyofkain.com/downloads/lok_wallpaper01_800.jpg) one would fit much better. :)

I thought the PAL SR2 bos was a slightly closer version of the same pic? the USA one shows the entire reaver doesn't it? The PAL one is much closer.


I prefer that pic for the PAL box art too. I like the pic of raziel much more. Kain doesn't look much better though...

Looks great, and gives an image of the new style of gameplay.

ToTheGame had another pic of the official PAL box art. It`s the same as Sayel reffered to.

Edit: It looks similar to the one Sayel mentioned.

I hope it's good. Although I'm slightly upset that I won't be getting the US version cover.

PS: Good luck in your search.

aw crap!

well at least umah wasn't the one to point that out eh?

Wow. I like the UK box art more than I like the North American box art. The flame-y background could do with some replacement, but the poses are cooler.

the UK boxart maybe different though, as they quite offten are different to the Euro ones.

Plus i would get the PC one will be the same everywhere, its only really consoles that seem to go for different cover art

no. that one has the age rating thing in the corner that UK games have. I'm fairly sure that's the boxart we'll be getting over in the UK on the 28th! (OK so that's date's not official but it's EVERYWHERE for the PAL release date so until someone says otherwise I'm expecting it on the 28th nov)

The Pal - version comes to Europe in December 2003. And the new Box Arts are official, here a pic from the official Site: http://www.eidos.de/gss/legacy/legacyofkain/popup/popup_buy.jpg



Ok, the German version, but it will be the same. I'm so glad because of the "16 - Rating".:) 18 - rating would mean, that it would be very hard to get in Germany.
