Super size patch me if old.


EDIT:


Hey guys, chiming in here for a second. I can talk about the patch to a certain extent, but first, here's a note from Martin Klima, Executive Producer at Warhorse:

“Four years after our Kickstarter campaign, our game is set to be released tomorrow. The task was really big and our team although still quite small and we always wanted to deliver, to create the game we wanted and we believed you wanted. Before talking about some background, all of us at Warhorse would like to thank our community, the backers and friends who helped us to bring this dream to life by giving us the chance to develop what we believe is a unique RPG experience!

The production realities of game development mean that a ‘release’ version has to be finalized some time before the actual release date. We could have used this time to get some rest, or we could use it to create some additional content and sell it to you as DLC, but we went back to the version-to-be-released and worked on it. The results are obvious: quests are more balanced, RPG progression is smoother, the game runs faster and every facet of the game got more polish. The drawback of course is that most of the data in the old build was replaced and has to be downloaded as a patch. At a hefty size, it’s going to take some time to download and it’s a shame. Still, we strongly believe that after four years wait it will pay off to wait a little bit longer while the Day 1 patch is downloading. Trust me, it will deliver the awesome experience YOU deserve!”
So, let me stop the rumor mill dead in its tracks before everyone continues jumping to conclusions. The way that I've been told that the engine works, is it takes the entire game and separates the PKG or ISO into 2GB archives. If during a patch you so much as alter a 1KB text file within any of these 2GB archives, then you need to reupload the ENTIRE 2GB portion. That beings said, this is a major patch that improves overarching mechanics throughout the game, so it touches almost all of these 2GB archives in the entire game build. Essentially you are having to redownload the game to replace the existing files. It shouldn't stack them and inflate on your harddrive, but rather replace the previously downloaded build files.

RIP playing on Day 1 for me. If it reviews well, I was planning on picking up after work, but it'll take several hours for me to download a 23 24 GB patch and I have work the next day, so can't stay up. Dang.

Edit: It should be 23 GB patch, not 24.

People said in the other thread that the disc only comes with like 100mb of data, so it's not the patch that's huge, this is the whole game.

EDIT: That was incorrect:

The game only comes with 100mb? This is 100% not true. The game, whether physical or digital, comes as a fully first party QA approved product. However, since we all waiting four years the for game, I'd recommend waiting another hour to download the patch that the Warhorse team was able to use the 6-weeks (at least) between submission of the final build and its release date to continue to work on and polish.

Well that's how it is for PC games for years allrdy if there even is a physical release in the first place.
Sorry but this is not a excuse if i can't play the game without a patch (buggy or not) this is a scam. Tony Hawk 5 was almost on the same position, it didn't pass.

I remember Warhorse saying they were having issues with Sony and their requirement to have the game be able to run while the disc downloads to hard drive. Wonder if this is a way they worked around it.

Edit: my assumption was wrong, looks like the game is on the disc.

Scam is definitely a bit much and i really don't see a huge issue here unless your internet connection is truly terrible but then you will probably run into problems with most games now since pretty much everything requires at least a day 1 patch these days, let's face it digital is the future the sooner ppl get used to it the better, i'm on PC only i have not seen a physical game in years you get used to it pretty fast and as far as i'm concerned there are no downsides to digital only.

So the disc only has 100MB on it? Why even bother with the disc and retail to begin with? Should have been a digital download only game.

I'll be playing it on PC and have good internet; some people don't have that luxury. I hate to say it but I agree with them, some form of game should have been on the disc; even if it was buggy as shit.

Are the 100MB on disc comments verified? This turned the game from "maybe" to "see you in a year with a complete edition" for me.

Seems like it just was not possible with the build they had at the time.

1.0 save files don't work on the 1.02 patch as well.

Make sure you're downloading your patch before you play with this one!

Archery in stealth mode is just want I want to hear. I like sulking with a bow in Skyrim so I hope that's possible in this.

I have to agree with some of your statement, I'm not having that problem myself, i have unlimited internet + always connect. But having work in a Videogame store for so much years in the pass , I know a lot of poeple that don't have that option, will buy the game, then will explode or take half of their data consumption just to be able to start the game... for them i would totally feel scam... big one day patch, fine it's optional, but having to download the entire game to play a physical copy, this is the most ridiculous thing console game could get. And Sony let's that pass ?

I'll try the disc when I get it, without the patch, to see what happens.

If there is only a 100 odd MB's on it then that is shady.
