Update 1.28 is now live and should be downloading through Steam as we speak.

And as usual, we recommend that you complete any ongoing saves that you want to finish in the previous version of the game (1.27.2) before updating. Starting old saves in 1.28 may result in strange results.

Also note that with version 1.28 the system requirements have been updated.
If you can not meet these updated requirements, then we recommend that you do not buy Golden Century and you should keep your game on version 1.27.2!

Minimum requirements

4GB RAM (up from 2GB)
6GB hard drive space (up from 2GB)

Recommended requirements
8GB RAM (up from 2GB)
6GB hard drive space (up from 2GB)

Information on how to revert/keep your game on version 1.27.2 can be found here!

Why was the hard drive space requirement tripled? Sorry if we aren't meant to reply this post
We hadn't updated them in a while, but clearly the game today is not the same as the game on release 5 years ago.
Assets take disk space, more tags and provinces means more RAM is needed to keep track of everything.

Finally we have to take ecosystem changes into account. A computer on "idle" today uses more RAM than it did earlier this decade, just look at your Chrome memory usage for example.
The game itself requires less than 2GB of RAM to run, but that's free memory and not total memory, which is unfortunately not the way minimum system requirements are expressed.

But I hope that this post-release revision of requirements is seen as a last resort, not a regular practice.

Took us 5 years to update it, so don't think you have to worry about it becoming a habit exactly ;)
