I wrote to Asmodee Deutschland on Facebook and was told that the planned release date of the german version of TI4 is July 2018. Also it does not seem like they will provide any preorder bonuses (Hardcover rulebook, posters etc.) from their side.

Due to it being written by Asmodees Facebook support this information should be taken with a grain of salt as it is rather unofficial.

Their message:
Quote:

[...] Twillight Imperium wird voraussichtlich im Juli erscheinen. Wir hoffen, dass der Plan sich nicht mehr verschieben wird. [...] Wir verkaufen unsere Produkte nur an Händler und deswegen können wir euch keinen Vorbesteller-Bonus bieten.[...]


So only 5 more months of waiting... cry
Or I will force the english version onto my friends devil

I couldn't wait and forced the English version on my friends already of whom one said he would't play a non-german version.
Now he plays it nevertheless an likes it
Would it not be so expensive i still liked to buy the German version though

Well, I'd stick with the english version, thank you very much.

Translations are often tricky; a guy I know plays X-Wing, and he says the translation to German sucks badly.

If your friends can understand english, I'd force the english version. Better some troubles reading the rules and having to read them twice than having to deal with a bad translation.

Yeah, half a year is quite some time...

I might follow your advice, especially if every possible expansion also has an almost one-year long delay.

That's sad ... I thought it should be released next month in March. What a set back.
I hope they're fixing things to put out a solid version of the game.

"Fixing" what, exactly? Apart from translating the cards, I doubt there will be any differences between the editions.

I learned from the french editor, and the worldwide-production system of FFG makes the entire non-english versions delayed. Apparently, it's the german translation which is not finished yet. They expect everything to be released by the summer, so that should be the case for the german version too.

I just got the great news that the German editions seem to be in stores. But only in the flagship stores.

Everyone who had them pre-ordered and isn't able to go pick them up, can wait for April 2019.

I feel a bit let down, I preordered that game in February 2017. I'm not saying I should be the first one to get it, but to just arbitrary say "nope, you're waiting, because our flagship stores are nowhere near you" feels kinda bad

not sure how the legalities, contractualities, and logisticalities work over there in ole Deutschland, but can’t you buy one online either from the store or 2nd hand?

And if you preordered directly from Asmodee, will they just give you a refund if you have to buy another copy?

Dangerous to think when it comes to trying to understand Asmodee & Fantasy Flight, yet I would THINK they would want as many fans as possible to get the game as soon as possible to grow their fan base as large as possible...
