Community manager replied to me on their forums (it was fast). He said that they're still negotiating supported platforms and release details with their publisher (on E3) and hopefully we will have some news soon
So it's the last day of E3 2016
No linux version is planned?
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.
Email has changed on my Kickstarter account. I need another verification email for my beta-key. What should I do?
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.
I registered and got the activation email, clicked on the link. I'm getting 'record not found' and now can't log in. What gives?
Why am I having to find out about this game being delayed until 2017 on Rock Paper Shotgun, not this Kickstarter page?
What about Linux support?
Waiting for news on the OS X version.
learning the hard way...
We're patiently two years in since funding date... Please update the status on Physical rewards.. Thanks.
I am saddened by the delay of course, but not to the curse laden screaming by some below posters. That level of response to someone trying to come up with a game from scratch (and with the warnings that they are doing so) is rather surprising. Plus if you go to the website and signup, you automatically get your codes. I just did it and it worked to perfection even though I was way late to the party. -- I do hope there is a lot of technical progress beyond the Beta though, as the Beta feels plodding and slow.
Hi can i get this on PS4 rather then pc as a backer once released?
Really hope it gets release on PS4 and not get delay on console platforms
Well, I hope they refund us at least when they don't deliver the Linux version.
I can understand the frustration about the Linux version. But please consider the statement they made in the FAQ, so maybe don't accuse them of scaming...:
"In case we are not able to finish or release the game on the platform you chose for any reason, you will be able to choose again (from available platforms) or demand your money back."
You told me that it's not possible, but as a backer i want to know if it's the bad Cryengine support, that may be better with Vulkan API, or a question of "How may efforts" you have to do to make a stable Linux version.
I'm a linux only gamer, i backed your project for that, and i still hope to be able to play Kingdomecome.
I backed this ONLY because it had a Linux release planned. I'm very disappointed. I planned to double-buy it when it came out, like I usually do for good Linux games, but of course now I won't - ever.
This is the first Kickstarter to "screw me off" in this way. Luckily I had only pledged 18 euros, less than half the digital edition price.
This is very unprofessional of you, and I won't be giving you any more money (unless a clear change happens).
Given that I specifically backed this because of the promised Linux support, I would also like, at the very least, an official update on this.
Please provide us with an official update on Linux support.
You guys seriously promised linux support! You guys might as well not have announced it, just makes you look like you guys stole money.
Is it true that there are currently no plans to release a Linux version?
it's true ? https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/kingdom-come-deliverance-doesnt-look-like-it-will-come-to-linux-any-time-soon.6809
OK, so I got clarification from their support staff: looks like Steam keys are only for Alpha-level backers. So e.g. for me there is no Steam key, since I do not have access to Alpha, only Beta.
They also were very helpful in explaining that they are different company from Steam, and hence can not issue Steam keys at will :D
Just read the very first paragraph on the campaign page... sheesh:
A first-person, open world, realistic RPG that will take you to Medieval Europe in a time of great upheaval and strife. A humble, young blacksmith loses everything to war. As he tries to fulfill the dying wish of his father, Fate drags him into the thick of a conspiracy to save a kidnapped king and stop a bloody conflict. You will wander the world, fighting as a knight, lurking in the shadows as a rogue, or using the bard’s charm to persuade people to your cause. You will dive deep into a sweeping, epic, nonlinear story from Daniel Vávra, an award-winning designer from the Mafia series. Our unique, first-person combat system lets you wield sword or bow in both one-on-one skirmishes and large-scale battles. All of this - and more - brought to life beautifully with next-gen visuals delivered via Cryengine.
Planned platforms: PC, Xbox One*, PS4*, Mac, Linux
Release date: Q4, 2015 on PC, Mac and Linux
Approx. gameplay time: 30 hours (Act 1), 70+ hours (all 3 acts)
* Publishing on closed platforms is subject to approval by the platform holder. This can also influence release date there.
Are you dense? This game was ALWAYS being developed for consoles. From before the kickstarter even ended. They even did an unboxing video of the dev kit they got from Microsoft (update #17 if you can be troubled to browse back that far). Maybe you should make sure you know what the hell you're talking about before you dump your mouth diarrhea all over the comments section.
Unbelievable. I will not be backing another Darkhorse game and I regret giving you crooks my money for something I never agreed to. Fucking ridiculous.
The delay output PC version because the console version is delayed, is Inadmissible!!!
Besides, they are wasting time and our money to program the console version.
I funded the PC version. Bad, very bad!
I have not got any code either. Also, I contacted support via their web form asking for help and got no reply whatsoever.
Kingdome has not come, and there is no deliverance I suppose.
From Friday my account still says "User account hasn't been activated. Please check your mailbox for activation email.". I never received an activation email and it has no option to resend one. Please, developers, activate my account...
You know what? Fuck this developer! Takes OUR money then decides that we can go fuck ourselves while they do a deal to release the game on console which delays the release so it can be released simultaneously. So backers get fucked, developer uses our support, and console players who've invested nothing reap the rewards.
Your obligation is to your backers you cunts! I am giving you ALL the respect and consideration your deserve. I have no issue with console release, in fact I support more platforms being supported. The issue is that WE DID NOT PAY FOR A FUCKING CONSOLE PORT but are still being made to wait for it to be completed.
I will never give you my money, and I think you've proven to be dishonest pricks not deserving of anyone's trust. You come here looking for funding and then sell us out as soon as you can whore yourselves off to the multinational console companies. PC has to deal with delays and late releases all the time, but you DECIDE to fuck us over.
I also notice you still have made no statement directly to your backers about this. The reason is obvious. You know you're fucking us, and don't want to have to deal with us. Its not like the ONLY reason you have a product to sell is because of us.
My account says "Check email for activation". I never received an activation email and it has no option to resend one. I reset password, which worked fine. Still cannot login.
We need a fix for this asap, I'm locked out!
So the game will be delayed 6 months or so to have the console versions come out at the same time? That's a bad decision in my opinion. There better not be a visual downgrade because of this.
I really hope your publisher will fund your next game because people on Kickstarter might think twice now.
I have not recieved ay code either, where do I get it?
Hi, i backed for beta access but i have yet to recieve a code?
hey, i just changed my password for my profile and now i cant log in, anyone else?, really want the beta...
I saw your official site now offer a new deal.
49.99 for full game? So my question is ACT I = full game?
Forgot to mention that i only just now got around to actually making the account on the official site in case that matters.
Backed at Baron and after logging into the site i dont have a steam key in my profile. Is this intended?
8GB of RAM is currently plenty for games. I check the used resources for any of my games that need quite a lot performance and none of them ever pushed the total RAM consumption to more than slightly over 6GB.
Yes, more than 8GB makes sense for 3D-animatior and Video-editing. But everyone who buys 16 or even more GB just for gaming is simply wasting money. TechSpot also was exactly that opinion at the end of November last year.
And that despite that their test with Chrome running in background with 65 tabs open was actually ridiculous.
Wait, is 16 Gb of RAM really that unusual at this point? You make it sound like anybody other than video editors would be crazy to have 16Gb of RAM, but as far as I knew 16 GB has been basically standard for the past couple years on a desktop computer.
Nice of you to quote something from an update that was made after my post, I'm sure I wouldn't have found that myself. But I yesterday already found that information in the Steam forums and directly uninstalled the game before the update was finished. Because why should I waste precious room on one of my SSD's for something that anyways wouldn't run.
created account on site, says credentials dont match for beta launcher. logged into site no problems
@ Ingo Günther: "For the Early Alpha players, who already activated the Steam code, the Alpha will automatically update to Beta on Steam. "
Also, "Beta minimum system requirements ... 16GB RAM".
So only people that have a PC for rendering or video editing or people that simply were stupid enough to think they would need that much RAM in the foreseeable future can play it.
I'm out, and hope the full version won't need this ridiculous amount of RAM.
Also I will be very happy if this Beta, I can't even play, will really replace the Tech Alpha that I could actually play.
Their website says:
"How can I play Beta?
The Beta version of Kingdom Come: Deliverance is accessible through our custom made installer. If you are an eligible Kickstarter backer, then you already received a code to download the game on Steam, or you can gain Beta Access on your Profile page."
In my profile page is only one key that, I think, was for the Alpha and I didn't get any mail recently. I assume the current update for the Alpha makes it the Beta, although the information from Kickstarter updates did sound to me so far like it would be a second release.
Seemingly there is no need to inform the backers here about anything anymore. So like "Beta version to be announced soon!" but there has been no actual announcement, we just had to learn from the public press about a alleged release date. On the other hand I read at that time on another site that backers would already have access to the beta (which clearly wasn't the case), so we cannot even be sure if March 3th is really the correct date. Well, I guess I will wait until the update is finished.
So, where is the promised beta? :)
http://www.pcgamer.com/kingdom-come-deliverance-may-be-delayed-on-pc-to-accommodate-consoles/… for your own good i hopw they are wrong...
Do you have a release date for the Beta ?
Also, How it will work to get the game ? It is not clear for me.
