What sort of copy protection (if any) will it use, then?

And what version/variety? Because if it's like Bioshock, Mass Effect, and Spore (90% of user reviews on Amazon are one-star reviews due to SecuROM), I'm not sure that's a good idea.

Don't worry - online activation won't be needed.

Default Official Response?

Okay, I really, really want to buy this game; but until I'm assured by the official 1C big-wigs that StarForce is NOT going to be used then I will hold off buying it.

Well, 1C … Can you assure your customers that StarForce will not be included with the game?

So the rumors of "FrontLine ProActive", from the makers of StarForce, aren't true? or is that only for the digital distribution copies?

The main technical problem is the restrictive number of installations. The "ethical" problem is that the studios are considering the customers as potential pirates.
And I think you can easily see it with the Spore scandal, the result is that the protection didn't stop piracy at all, and the abusive protection only punishes the honest customers.
So, I'd also like to know some details about the used securom protection in the us and european versions of King's Bounty.

Default What editions of the game can we expect?

So far, I've read that besides the boxed edition, there will be an online purchase option using 1C's new online shop.
But will there be any Collector's Edition with some nice extras available?
