    I know i have already made a thread on this but it may help more to vote on it rather then just talk about it...

    Yes definitely, with a thick manual, printed encyclopedia and perhaps a collectible item from the game.

    It should defenitely be realeased in a physical copy, just like the first two games were. That way they can separate drivers on the DVD-disc for the various OS/distributions

    I think they mention in one of the interviews that they will.

    And suddenly they announce a collector !
    Depending on the price and what it would offer maybe I would buy one if ever there is one

    I don't like the collector's idea it usually makes other people special and has compatibility issues.

    I tend to think that physical copies are a thing of the past. They are not really necessary. However, the download site has to be good. I guess Steam would do. If there is a disk, you shouldn't need the disk in the drive to play once it's installed. PDF manuals are fine too. Physical copies are just a waste of paper and trees. But that is just my opinion.

    A disc is important to me, as I intend to reinstall the game without the use of internet, so the physical copy comes in handy at that time

    In one of the interviews they did state that a retail hard copy would be available at some point. But no specifics

    I am not planning to buy it in physical so it does not affect me. However if they are willing to make a physical copy I am ok with that!

    Definitely have a physical copy that comes in a large box with a flap that opens to reveal more in game scenes. It also needs a really thick manual that falls apart at the seems after reading through it twice.

    Yes of course we should have the option of having a physical cd copy!

    1) the owner's appreciation

    2) like the original Cossacks European wars the cd version should come with a detailed manual or enclopedia detailing upgrades, individual nations and units or maybe 'history' of the very successful game franchise? Then throw in art work and a poster it will then make it valuable years to come as it'll be a collectable!!!!

    Problem with such a booklet (no matter how much I miss them!) is that it will be outdated quickly due to patches (at least the game related parts). IMO, the weakside of the original Cossacks games was a rather limited post shipment support, if they wish to thrive this time, they will need a robust patch/balance policy.

    Like one those unit/research tree posters are pretty cool!

    If there are a DVD with case and insert, the included instructions could cover the basics of the game, that you got to know about, when you start installing and playing it. I does'nt have to cover up every detail, if the idea is that the game should be updated any now and then after the release

    Those booklets are nice for an old game where the whole game was released once and no more patches or updates. However, for most modern games they are not as good due to the major changes that games go through if they want to stay alive. GSC is no longer as big as it used to be so we already know that they would have to rely heavily in the content after release. Therefore as WERY said if such booklets are included they would have to be more of a "lore" kind of thing explaining the overall game and the different units.
