My biggest problem with Kingsom Come: Deliverance is, sadly, with the developers and their "Beta", which I still maintain is more of an Alpha.
They have repeatedly said, when questioned about performance issues, that their focus is delivering on the full game and they cannot include any performance updates without either spoiling the game for people or wasting too much time creating new Beta code.
From this I infer a few things:
- The Beta was next to useless.
- This is all we will ever get until full release.
For me, on 1080 FTW card performance is fairly terrible, virtually no improvement over my 980 Ti, and lowering settings doesn't appear to help.
No beta testing can occur as they are not updating the Beta to include new things. Therefore the release product will not have been Beta tested at all, at least by the public. If I had known the extent of the Steam Beta was going to be a single snapshot without updates I wouldn't have given them a penny!
It's a bit of a mess really and all we can hope for is the final product is all it cracks up to be. But hey, at least all those folk who pledged for shiny swords are getting those delivered...
