Hey Guys and Girls,
It`s such an amazing feeling to continue work on Kingdom Wars 1. The team and I are looking forward to fulfilling all the promises we made with regards to Kingdom Wars future, and albeit delayed by a few months, we hope that today`s update will be a great first step in that direction.
Today we take another swing at releasing update 1.2. Following the problems with the original patch we broke it down into two parts, and done a lot of of additional debugging and polishing.
We have taken all the precautions to make sure nothing gets broken, and if it does, nobody will loose any progress (at most 60 minutes of progress will be lost if worst comes to worst)
This Part 1 will include 90% of changes from our original update 1.2, however we will not be forcing players to update (can keep on playing on older patch), and it will now include few core fixes, like: better performance, no multiplayer lag, steam overlay and store working for everyone, stability and crash fixes.
Part 2 of 1.2 might take us additional couple of weeks to complete.
After we have finally updated to 1.2 Part 2, we`ll easily be able to patch the game in the future, and our priorities will continue to be getting Kingdom Wars stable but free by early-mid summer, followed by release the Lords and Vassals expansion. From that point on we`ll be working on copying various cool features to KW1 - from pathfinding and turn times to Russian localization, and smooth & stable multiplayer games.
