So can anyone who has played this in beta/alpha comment if it's any good?

The bit I played in beta was pretty good. I thought they did a fairly good job of creating a medieval world, there's plenty of interesting things to do, and there are a lot of RPG elements that I enjoy. The combat is comprehensive and I can definitely see how player skill plays a major role. I think it has some promise.

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.

I'm sorry what

Yeah if I understand it correctly they are compressing the poo poo out of the game to get the file sized down and...unzipping? Mounting? Doing something with an ISO as is it is being played. It's just weird because disk size is cheap while for a lot of people downloads are increasingly expensive. Contact huge patches are going to kill people with data caps.

are downloads that bothersome for people? i imagine it's going to vary a lot by location but i always thought bandwidth was pretty cheap. i'm in australia, and while our internet is famously crappy (though i think many people living here who blithely complain about how our internet is worse than estonia's miss the fact our geography makes it loving hard and estonia has iirc become a bit of an it hub), any patch smaller than 6 or 7 gigs isn't going to do more than mildly irritate me

hard drive space on solid state drives i also think is at a bit of a premium - a lot of games n ow are 50 gigs+ and ssd prices remain pretty expensive (though coming down; iirc technological development pace on storage is better than most other types of progress and cost/mb halves yearly)

The save game system seems quite unorthodox. As far as I can tell, you save when you sleep in game, other times you have a consumable item called Saviour's Schnapps. You drink it to save during gameplay when expecting trouble and it gives you a stat effect like other alcohol does. Means you can't save scum your way through the game, but could be an annoyance depending on playstyle. No doubt this will be modded early once the modding gets unlocked by devs.

In Skyrim I'd save all the time, in KCD I'll have to learn to roll with how the game lets me save. Mistakes have consequences and I'll have to be cautious with what I try to do, until someone makes a mod that gives unlimited Schnapps. Then I'll roll around drunk all day, every day.

The day-night cycle is probably quite a bit shorter than in real life. The nights are dark like the inside of a bag, and you need a torch to see if you're not sleeping the night away.

You can disguise yourself by wearing enemy clothing, btw. The clothing system uses layers of different items like armour, shirts, trousers and what have you. Some items are better for sneaking, some for melee, social interaction or other uses.

There is a discount link for Gamesplanet at the youtube page of let's player Lady Lilia. 13% off when paying with Amazon Pay. She has been playing the Beta and loving it. She will also do a LP of the game's main quest line on release plus streaming sidequests on Twitch.

In this 6-minute video she is just talking about her plans for the game so no spoilers there but there is a link for Gamesplanet on the page.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQC8zaoFQfQ

For the record, I have watched only a few of her videos so far to avoid spoilers and I am not in any way associated with her channel. She gets a small amount of money from purchases made through her affiliate link. You can give her youtube channel some goon views if you want a discount, I won't link to Gamesplanet directly.

I honestly have no idea, but I doubt it though. German medieval farming simulator mod? I'd play that. There's always Stardew Valley for your turnip growing needs.

Archonex, we can only dream of such detail levels. I believe there are some kinds of diseases, debuffs or food poisonings in the game, that much I have seen. If anyone knows more, do share. If you want a game with a dedicated button for urinating, try My Summer Car.

No, I'm just playing along with you, pooper man. If you have a poop humor fixation, I hope you get what you're looking for. There is some cutscene where the main character is flinging poo poo at a house, if that makes you feel warm and fuzzy. I would imagine the mod scene will be a sight to behold... And seriously, check out My Summer Car if you want a beer-drinking-piss-flinging life simulation. Watch a twitch streamer like Jefmajor for it.

At this point in time I can't give a genuine impression of whether this game is good or not. I have heard good things but that is all I can say. If the game does not seem like your kind of thing for any reason, just wait and see how it turns out. Might be boring, might be fun. If you hate the lead developer and want to buy something else with your money, feel free man.

Most videos out there are of the Beta version from a year and a half ago. This one shows some combat training and quests where the main character goes undercover in a monastery in a murder investigation I believe. Some alchemy/cooking too.

You usually get it in time for launch, or thereabouts. Sometimes you can even get it well ahead of the time and can preload.

You should get the key immediately, although sometimes the publisher fucks up and doesn't provide them enough keys to cover the sales immediately at launch and it's a few hours until you get it. that's rare though.

Only reason not to go with GMG if they are having a sale is that you can't preload it.

E. Looks like their 20% off coupon can be used on KCD so yeah go for it if you don't absolutely need to play at midnight

Yeah that was my intention, use the %20 off to play it at midnight but I'm still pretty skeptical so I don't wanna pre-order.

Looks like they are releasing 12 PM ET on the 13th anyway so I'll be at work. I'll just wait to buy it when I get home on the 13th after we get some initial reactions instead of taking the pre-order gamble through GMG.
