      I got my money back (worked without any problems). Does a lot for the ease of mind. I can still buy it once it comes out for my platform (though I assume this will never happen).

      Wait -- I only play Mac games, and backed this game to play on my Mac. And now the Mac version is canceled?

      I did not give money to CryTek though, so I will complain to the merchant who took my money. And let him throttle CryTek in courts if they decide to. Because, you know, that's how things work.

      So, for the record. I still expect my Linux support. I have not got my steam key, there is an abominable delay on this project and I do not trust the bearded guy a single bit. So it better be amazing and support Linux. Let me in fact say it again: Linux. Thanks.

      Guys, if you want to complain about the lack of Mac and Linux support, complain to CryTek.

      Back when the KC:D campaign was running, CryTek was solemnly promising to support Mac and Linux with the CryEngine in the (at that time) near future. Almost three years later, and CryTek hasn't delivered and probably never will.

      When working with a third-party engine, as Warhorse does, you are at the engine's developers' mercy. That's what's happened here.

      Please use Vulkan API for Linux version. :)

      When I funded the Kickstarter, I originally got the Soldier package with the physical box copy for ps3. I now want to switch it to PC, is there any way to do that??

    13. Aaron Smith on September 21

      So I created an account for the website but I never received an activation email. Weird thing is I am getting emails from the site and I have an account created for the forums.

      Here is the info from update 43 "There are two ways how to access Beta, either through Steam or by means of our Warhorse Launcher. Here is the how-to for our new backers and Knights:

      Please register on our website with your Kickstarter email
      Go to your profile
      Click on the Warhorse Launcher link to download it
      Install the Warhorse Launcher
      Enter your login and password
      Download the Beta
      Play the Beta :-)
      The backers registered on our website in the past months already have Steam keys in their profile. The code is still there for your reference. For the Early Alpha players, who already activated the Steam code, the Alpha will automatically update to Beta on Steam.

      To access the Beta now, please create an account on";

    15. Stephen Dixon on September 18

      @Dylan you may want to check in the past updates but I would try to login and or register an account on their website and you should be able to get your baron rewards through there. Once you've got an account on there you can message them through there as well.

      So this is a touch overdue, but life got a bit hectic in the last couple years and I sort of forgot that I backed this. Anyway, I was wondering how I could contact someone to get my rewards for backing at the Baron level. I think I missed the survey and now I unfortunately haven't received anything. I was really looking forward to this when I first heard about it and was really hoping to get my hands on it quickly, so if I could get in contact with whoever can help me quickly that would be much appreciated.

      Will there be a framerate lock on this game when it's launched?
      Currently, the beta seems to be locked at 35 fps for me, and it's not very fluid.

      There's no official statement yet and the game is not released, so it hasn't been decided yet and it's not too late.

      Definitely going to see how I can get my 30 € back. Not delivering on their Linux release promise now that CryEngine even has OFFICIAL Linux support built-in, lol. In October CryEngine even will support Vulkan.

      This look like it's last time I backed game that promised linux support. The linux support was promised for beta and now beta is out a few months and the linux version is nowhere. Even the loader is written in C# and without mono it doesn't run on linux.

      Yeah! We want to know more about status of Linux version. :)

    26. Tom Boyle on September 6

      I keep forgetting i backed this. I doubt thats the kind of reaction you want from people! Do you have any plans to provide regular updates here? I am aware you have a web site and i'm sure there's more information in the forums, but, here is where i come to find out about projects i have backed. Please let me know what your plans are with regards to regular updates on progress.


    27. Atamert Ölçgen on September 6

      I backed this project *because* it supported linux. What's the status of the linux port?

    28. Niels on September 5

      @Matthijs: It is not about delays, it is about the Linux version they promised and fell completely silent about.

      Honestly not sure what people are talking about here. It's too bad they didn't meet the release date of December 2015 but have you played the beta? I'd rather have a good game they are happy with then something that was rushed.

      Hi! So can we expect a Linux version?

      Please test it on *buntu 14.04 LTS and 16.04 LTS.

      OK, this is getting pointless... time to get a refund. By the time this game will MAYBE get released for *nix systems it will cost less than the pledge for it. The game will not be coming to these platforms upon release date and the fact that you still haven't openly announced it to your backers is truly shameful and beyond me. 4 updates in 6 months and one E3 since beta release and not a single one about this issue, explaining your backers where is the problem. One must look and search through your forum to get even shred of information, kickstarter backers are being ignored. Shame on you!

      I am happy to wait until 2017 if it has Linux support, VIVE support and is better than Bannerlord on release date. Otherwise it will be much disappoint, so hype many refundies.

      So I just finally got around to actually messing around with the beta a bit and have a probably rather unusual question. How many plant species do you guys have in here? I'm impressed with the diversity of trees and shrubs rather than just "stock conifer" and "stock hardwood" like so many games have. The birch bark looks great, and it looks like I've found both immature and mature lobed oaks. I also can't tell for sure, but it looks like the dead leaves on the ground are at least partially based on what trees are nearby?

      Some questions though. Flora is already so much better than most games do, will there be mushrooms as well? It also looks like some of the trees and logs have moss texturing but it looks like its all the same, any plans to flesh out some more bryophyte textures? Also have noticed a conspicuous absence of lichen. Also looks like some of the water plants are either azolla or duckweed, but its somewhat hard to tell at the current texture size.

      And then it rained, and I ended up just geeking out over the fact that the ground remains wet after it rains.

      So I can already tell I will spend far too much time just wandering around enjoying the scenery.

      Currently sitting at the soldier pledge. Is there a way to upgrade to knight to play the beta? Probably been asked a thousand times or more by now, but I'm not following the conversation here.

      I'm puzzled that they still have not mentioned that the game will be delayed. See their interview linked a few posts below. That kind of non-communication is a bit worrying, I'd expect not having to search the web for that info... Also it's not cool to get that delay because of consoles, double that non-coolness if you are a linux user. Just saying... :|
      Still looking forward to the game, though.

      So, to this day we still don't have any clear explanation about what happened with Linux version and where is the actual problem... we were told vague excuses and that we'll get the information soon and then we were told to wait for E3. E3? I think you have mistaken your backers for customers with preorders to make them wait for some open public announcement.

      Waiting months for something that was suppose to be handled in one day months prior beta release or at the very least the day of beta release by one of your developer that knows what technical problem there is and could easily explain it, is completely inexcusable. Only thing we get is some PR jester to tell over and over again that Linux beta is not currently possible... no shit, we haven't notice you did not release what you promised us. Where are the kickstarter updates that you are obligated to give us? You clearly don't want to tell us the reasons that much is certain, this whole charade and information embargo is deliberate on your part. Only question remains is whether you are just trying to hide your incompetency or if it's actual lies that are being protected.
