Lair Dev is Complete, Aug 14 Release Set!

Given all the content and interest here on Lair, I figured you guys would also be interested to hear that the North American version of Lair has completed its development and is now in manufacturing! That means that we are on track for our August 14 release date. It goes without saying that we’re eager to get this out to those of you that have been waiting so patiently (or not!) for it to arrive. Considering the new PS3 price and now Lair, hopefully there’s even more of a reason to scoop up a PS3 if you haven’t already!

For us, there’s still a bit of work to do, as we have localization to finish up for Europe, Japan, Korea, and more, which will all hopefully follow very soon. Once those are out, our leaderboards will truly be global, and then we can see once and for all who the best Lair players are out there! The gauntlet has been thrown, and North American players are getting Lair first, so don’t give that advantage away…

We also have some great updates for the official Lair site that will be live soon, so keep an eye out for those …

Nice, like others said, any word on a demo for us?

40cal said:

@ Ryan

Lair will move systems, no doubt. Is there any plans for Lair PSN store stuff? You know Dragon armor so forth?

This will be my first PS3 game. :)

Demo plz?

eclipsed4utoo said:

I would love to get a demo. Currently, Lair is a rental for me. Playing the demo may make me buy the game.

this game looks soooo tight!!!! I’ve been anxiously waiting for Lair and now I know for sure that I can get it on August 14th! Thanks Ryan for the clarifying that for all of us. As for the people begging for a demo I’m right there with ya but no worries if we don’t get it. Byahhhhh

July 25th, 1:41 pm

Wow! August 14th? I didn’t realize it was coming out so soon. Ha, I’m not sure I’ll have enough money to get all these great games coming out in the next few months!

This game is great and I know that I am going to by it. But for the guys at Sony I know the producer or someone who works on the game said the demo might be released after the release but I think you guys should try and find a way to get the demo before the release. Especially for the people who do not know about the game it will be a great way for them to try it out and get excited over it. I also believe that this game will be the first big game of PS3’s line up following Warhawk Heavenly Sword Ratchet and Clank etc..

Tgrant said:

July 25th, 1:42 pm

whats the point of them releasing a demo if the game will be released in like 3 weeks. Patience my friends

RedHawk said:

July 25th, 1:42 pm

Great! Demo now please!

Stoffinator said:

July 25th, 1:43 pm

@ Tgrant

Because the point of a demo is to have it before the game comes out, to see if you like it. This is why I will not be buying Lair until I get to try the demo.

Premonition said:

July 25th, 1:44 pm

@ Ryan,
if you guys release the Demos anytime soon, I hope you have them up and running on all the kiosk around America and EU, so that non PS3 owners can see the power of the system and how great of a game this will be,

P.S. I hope you read my comment :(, cause I want this game to be BIG.

Good, more good games coming out for PS3. Demo please.

Kaze88 said:

July 25th, 1:45 pm

I really love factor5 games like rogue squadrons! Their one of the most enjoyable flyfighter games that ive ever played and the idea in lair is fresh, not too used like most of games nowadays.
This is a must buy for me.

The post “Firmware 1.90 Coming Soon” is broken and can’t be accessed!

redDragon said:

July 25th, 1:46 pm

YES! One of the best PS3 games and the first big exclusive to come out this year is ready!

Can we get a date on the confirmed demo?

FFObsessed said:

July 25th, 1:47 pm

Day 1 purchase from me.

sectionz said:

July 25th, 1:50 pm

this game will need no demo ;) the concept alone was money for me.

well money for sony really. my money. but for sony .. ah forget it.

GFXology.com said:

July 25th, 1:51 pm

Also wondering if we can expect a demo? I love to try before I buy, and this is one of those games that I’m skeptical about, although have faith in your dev. team.

deadxbabiesxinc said:

July 25th, 1:51 pm

the pic you guys decided to use for this blog would make a great wallpaper for my PS3!!!

sectionz said:

July 25th, 1:51 pm

oh wait .. where is the box art?

Riskbreaker23 said:

July 25th, 1:55 pm

great to know we will actually get it on the 14th

Vattu said:

July 25th, 1:56 pm

Exactly WHY is Lair delayed for Europe and other areas?

Kaoro said:

July 25th, 1:57 pm

I can’t wait for Lair!

Quick question, which is more or less about all PS3 games… Will Lair be able to receive patches and/or DLC? I ask this just because I know bugs always turn up in any game.

I know that on the Xbox 360 all games are able to be patched but Resistance and Motorstorm are the only PS3 games I’ve seen receive a patch.

Laid developer Julian Eggebrecht stated quite clearly in an interview not too far back that they have not worked on a demo and won’t do so until the final game is complete. So… no demo before the game ships, unfortunately.

Helghasp said:

July 25th, 1:58 pm

August 14th! I’m so relieved it wasn’t delayed again. Getting it day 1 for sure.

blink18214re said:

July 25th, 1:58 pm

I just cant wait for lair…the story will be so deep and beautiful.

West End Matt said:

July 25th, 1:58 pm

I had no idea this game was gonna go online. That’s insane!! These games are gonna kick ass!!

K said:

July 25th, 1:58 pm

You guys could have made the original July 31 ship date afterall.

@28 http://www.gamestop.com/common/images/lbox/270005brp.jpg

@30 Uh language changes? It isn’t ‘delayed’. If you want it earlier, just import it.

turstkill said:

July 25th, 1:59 pm

Demo, please! Don’t want them annoying fanboys to have more ammo for their (albeit little) guns.

Karamo said:

July 25th, 2:00 pm

I do hope that there is a demo coming

stinkey said:

Cool, this game and Heavenly are going to be my reasons for getting a ps3. A demo would be cool too.


SPARDA said:

July 25th, 2:01 pm

That’s great. Tahnsk for the update.
I remember reading that a Lair demo was going to hit the PS store early July.
Are we still getting one before the release of the full game?

xplosneer said:

July 25th, 2:01 pm

Cool :)
Can’t wait. Any word on a demo for it. Doesn’t matter to me though, I’m getting it :)

xplosneer said:

July 25th, 2:04 pm

K said:

July 25th, 2:09 pm

Yeah a demo is top priority right now (assuming the game is really good!) and it’s got to hit soon or the release date will pass and kids go back to school, game does bad..

killthee said:
