Europe is so used to being second in line, behind North America, when it comes to videogame releases, but in the case of Spore we'll get our hands on it first. Okay, only two days earlier, but it does make us feel special.

EA and Maxis has today confirmed that the life-sim has gone gold and will be available on the Mac and PC at retailers September 5 in Europe and September 7 in North America and Asia Pacific. Spore Creatures for Nintendo DS and Spore Origins for mobile phones will also be available globally September 7.

For the ultimate Spore fan, the limited Galactic Edition will contain the 'Making of Spore' DVD, 'How to Build a Better Being' DVD (a 50 minute National Geographic Channel documentary DVD hosted by Spore mastermind, Will Wright), 'The Art of Spore' hardback book, an exclusive Spore poster, and a premium 100-page Galactic Handbook.

Spore gives players their own personal universe in a box, allowing fans to create and evolve life, establish tribes, build civilizations, sculpt entire worlds and explore a universe created by other gamers. Spore gives players a wealth of creative tools to customize nearly every aspect of their universe: creatures, vehicles, buildings, and even spaceships. Players can then seamlessly share their creations with the world via the Sporepedia and explore infinite new galaxies created by other gamers.

Check out some of the creatures created by the HEXUS.community members.

What are the chances it lives up to the hype?

I dunno, but I'll probably be buying it anyway :p The release falls nicely into the period after when my work contracts runs out and before I start back at uni :)
The creature creator is a bit of a giggle :)

Apparently EA have decided to DRM it up to the hilt though, so I doubt I'll bother with the full game unless it's on the PS3 or something where those horrible DRM rootkit things can't screw my dvd drive up again..
