Actually I just received the email. You have to go to


Login with your KS email and choose whether you wanted Steam key or GoG key. If you did not answer, the default is Steam key, so no biggie if you are always on Steam.


#507

You got your key, or that email? I got the email too, but no key yet.


#508

I got the reminder email, not the key yet.


#509

And you just put Dead Space to bed. You’re ready for this!

I’m knee deep in RDR2 though. Underworld might have to wait.


#510

I’m still not done with AC Odyssey, and Hitman 2 is out on the same day!


#511

Anyone else finds these bonuses a little odd? It was my understand that games like these (Dishonored, Prey, etc) specifically avoid giving the player exclusive items that affect gameplay/balance. Pretty sure I read that in multiple interviews with Arkane heads over the years.

Anyway, picking this up day one if it’s really going to be 30 bucks like comments say.

@Major_Malphunktion : can you give as an estimate on game’s length, compared to games like System Shock 2, original Deus Ex, etc?


#512

UW:A isn’t being made by Arkane. Hopefully those items are just little bonuses that the player would have picked up eventually anyway.


#513

I know, but it’s a very similar style of game, hence why I brought up Arkane.


#514

So I tried the beta from a month ago finally. It all looks kind of cartoony but the systems seem solid (barring a clipping bug I found with a door). However, my one worry is that the beta didn’t support 21:9. I sure hope the final release does.


#515

Woah… that’s a make-or-break issue for me. If anyone can confirm whether this has been fixed (or not), please do so!


#516

Paging @Major_Malphunktion - any idea on the 21:9?


#517

As far as I know the 21:9 bugs are not fixed for launch. they are on the short list tho.


#518

I’m just thinking that maybe a few gamers around here need to get a fucking monitor that humans use. Not all of us are like

#519

Is 16:10 implemented?


#520

I don’t even check for 21:9 compatibility on new games anymore, as it’s been a long time since I’ve encountered one where it’s a problem. I’m glad this came up. Those early-adopter bonus pets were sorely tempting me.

Dr Helena Russell.

Good grief, why do I still remember that? :)


#524

Not that I’m personally too bothered, but the email I just received from them states that the Steam copy of the game is drm-free and can be played offline which may be useful for some to know.


#525

I hate that this is a “feature” in 2018.

If the last two games that I played that didn’t have 21:9 support at launch are anything to go by, prepare yourself for lots of angry posts in the Steam forums and reviews about the lack of this essential feature. Unlocked frame rate, that’s the other one that gets certain people to blow their tops (the 60 Hz limit on the menu screen of Into the Breach was the best one! “Literally unplayable.”).


#526

I suggest a known issues post noting that ultra-widescreen support is in the works and expected in X weeks to head that crap off.
