Kingdom Come Deliverance Developers Discuss Past Updates And Future Plans
There is no denying that Warhorse Studios’ story-driven RPG has had quite the rocky start. Even though a massive day-one patch was provided for players, the game’s launch was still plagued by bugs. This, of course, hasn’t stopped the Kingdom Come Deliverance developers from working hard on finding fixes needed to enhance the overall experience for players.
In a recent post on the game’s Steam page, the Kingdom Come Deliverance developers discussed future plans, while also taking into account the things that have already happened. The major annoyance with previous patches for the title has been players not knowing which version of said patch they had installed. This has been due to Warhorse having no control over the numbering of the updates. Here is the breakdown that community manager Rick Lagnese provided:
When we finish any patch we can’t just upload it and send it to you immediately. There is a certification phase in which platform holders check whether the patch is stable. This process takes various amounts of time on different platforms. This is the reason why the patches are released at different times.
However, they check not only stability but also platform-specific requirements, for example, whether the controllers are named correctly, whether you can change user mid-gameplay etc. If we fail any of these platform-specific requirements, we have to upload a correction just for that specific platform. This is the reason why we are releasing a different number of patches on each platform.
We don’t have any control of patch version numbers that you see when downloading. These are numbers assigned by platform holder and they could vary in different regions, languages etc. So if you want to be sure which version you have installed, launch the game and in the main menu check the bottom left corner. That’s the right patch version.”
Now that we have some clarification on the numbering process of patches and how to ensure players have the proper one installed, it’s time to look to the future. The Kingdom Come Deliverance developers seemingly have no intention of slowing down when it comes to fixing any and all bugs gamers have been experiencing. In the same post from above, Warhorse Studios outlined what can be expected in the next two updates for the game. Check them out below:
Hotfix – Version 1.2.5 (upcoming)
We already fixed some of the worst bugs and want to give these fixes to the community as fast as possible. Therefore we will push this to certification on Monday 2/19
