Russian Titan Quest Gold box (unreleased?)
« on: 15 January 2019, 10:43:14 »

Maybe there's some TQ members here that can answer this for me..

During my usual searching sessions on the vast internets for all things TQ related I came across this unique Gold Edition box cover which, according to Mobygames, was only released for retail in Russia



But then again perhaps it wasn't?  And (much to my disappointment) I can't seem to find it anywhere else, including of course any of the online trading sites (ebay/amazon etc) listing this version

This leads me to believe that it was a potential prototype or concept cover for the Gold Edition that for whatever reason wasn't used ....unless someone has it??! (please post pics if so  ;))  In any case it's a real nice cover with the Greek marble ^^ Hope someone here can confirm the story behind it.

While I came to TQ myself a little too late to have CD versions I do remember this gold edition made an appearance on torrent trackers (pirated). That was several years ago. Probably even these trackers do not exist anymore.

Hey mammoth,

Torrent trackers eh, so as in only downloadable with the torrent showing this image? But still no sign of a physical boxed copy..?  :-\

Unfortunately I stopped using trackers several years ago and the one in question (free-torrents.org) does not exist anymore indeed. But if there were disc images, there was a disc they were made from.


...

Found it on rutracker. But it looks like my account was deleted for inactivity. I only see one image in the post, maybe there are more in the files there

No, haven't seen the image you posted, Prosoro. The Gold Edition I own came in the box mammoth_hunter posted.

Hey Malgardian, yeah that's also the same edition I own as well.  Guess it likely is just a 'promo cover' or concept that Iron Lore/THQ never used..
