Thread: Pre-order Crusader Kings II live!

  1. #61
    It's finally here, awesome! I can't expect to see which kind of pre-order bonus there will be...

    And, in the opposite way of most questions here: if I buy it from Gamersgate, will I be able to activate it on Steam?

    (Paradox games on Steam can be played offline without problems (you just have to double-click the goddamn *.exe!), and I like to have my games fully integrated into one platform, but it's easier to me to buy games from GamersGate.)

    I'm wondering...

    Can the devs say if it will be an easier task to have a Steam copy of CKII with regards to the new policy upon DLCs and the like?

    Or do they estimate it to be roughly the same with GG? With GG just requiring a manual install of the DLCs among other things?

    I was wondering about the same. Will there be a difference in apllying DLC's to the two versions, and/or various mods that will surely appear.

    Thank you for clarifying this.

    When it comes to DLC's and expansions, both GG and Steam versions will be fine and similarly solved.

    Wonderful news. Preordered on Gamersgate.
    There are three roads to ruin: by gambling, which is the quickest; through women, which is the most pleasurable; and through taking the advice of experts, which is the most certain.

    Waiting for the Steam preorder to go up. I'll do it as soon as it arrives.

    Edit - Actually, not so sure. So many blue coins...

    Edit 2 - Preorder complete.

    What about patches and beta-patches? Do you know yet if they will be supported differently? I.e. will both version get access to beta-patches, will patches for one version be released sooner, etc.?

    Will there still be non-Steam beta patches in the future?

    Bah, more dev money gone because of Steam-o-phobias. I read apost the other day, by Johan I believe, where he explains why a single version of the game would save money and benefit the development of the game in general.

    But hey, no progress is fine and I hope those people are happy now.


    On topic.

    I'll preorder this when the bonusses have been revealed.

    I assume any pre-order will have the same bonuses, no matter how far before release one buys it?

    This feels like GG again getting early cash by letting people pre-order it before any other media has the chance to offer it.

    Instant-Preorder done!

    Ordered via gamersgate since I like to support them. (No I don't hate steam, but I love gamersgate)

    Great to hear that. What is the situation of the boxed version, will it be Steam-only, activatable on Steam but not required or completely non-Steam?
    Or does this depend on the publishers in the respective countries (probably Koch Media in Germany)?

    Since I always have enjoyed to get the boxed version, I checked if I could preorder CKII from cdon.fi, and it turned out I could!! Can't wait for February!

    i'll probably preorder this after my question in answered, but I am wondering, like Maizel, if the earlier/later we preorder, will effect what bonuses we get?, would be great if thsoe who preorder earlier, get a little something extra.
