Today, developer Warhorse Studios unleashed a huge patch update for Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The update has been distributed on PlayStation 4 and should already be available on Steam, according to Warhorse’s creative director, Daniel Vávra. Xbox One users may have to wait a bit longer for their update to arrive, but the developers ensure that it’s on the way.
Today’s patch for Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a whopping 16 GB, which may take a while to download on PS4. Based on a recent post on ResetEra by Deep Silver’s Will Powers, it seems that future patch updates for Kingdom Come will continue to be fairly large in download size.
Hello guys, we are aware about the bugs that could happen and working hard on fixing them. Steam has latest patch already, console owners will get this patch (1.0.3 for PS4, 184.108.40.206 Xbox) ASAP. PS4 patches 1.0.1 & 1.0.2 are the same, the difference is only in territory. 1/1 pic.twitter.com/6w0f0vCiKJ— Daniel Vávra ⚔ (@DanielVavra) February 13, 2018
“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,” said Powers. “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.”
Although Warhorse hasn’t release any official patch notes for today’s update yet, we can glean some information from the PS4 changelog, which states that this update made changes to how quickly people get dirty, along with changes to the stealth mechanic.
Hopefully Warhorse can be a bit clearer in the future as to what players can expect in each patch update across PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Kingdom Come: Deliverance released on February 13, and we already have a handful of guides to help you begin your journey. How to install the unlimited save mod is a good place to start.
