I do not believe this has been answered but forgive me if it has. The game is being released 9am PDT... devs have already said there will be a patch same day, do we know if the patch will be available at the same time the game is released or will it be available later in the day?

Yes and it will be 23GB download :p

 

 

 

just kidding, just kidding, don't hit me. No one has confirmed the release of the patch, but the shipping of physical DVD at later time after release game makes me think, that you get Day 0 patch for this game as well.

I'd be suprised if pre-load did not already include the day-1 patch. Unless it wasn't ready yesterday.

I am not sure day 1 patch is in the preload. I think Obsidian had to submit game to the Steam much earlier because of how they operate and in order for everything to go on time. 

 

I expect game will install after the launch and immediately update. Not sure how big day1 patch will be but we can expect few GB imho.

That's pretty much exactly what I was expecting. I know the patch has some fairly major stuff--revamping the enchanting UI and such.

I noticed my pc version was a 6gb dl, but my mac version was 11.1 gb. I wonder why that is?

I don't actually know, but if I were to take a guess I'd say just different kinds of compression?

I just hope the GoG version is all patched up when it's released later today!

The recent minor snafu with the release of the Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition 1.4 patch (the initial patch download didn't actually have the patch :) ) on GOG led me to go ahead and get PoE on Steam as well, simply to be as current as I can.

 

I love GOG and hopefully PoE on GOG is kept current in a timely fashion for those who chose to get their PoE there. I only got the base game on Steam; GOG will be the source of my extras. :)

Even as a bit of an anti-DRM fanatic, I honestly can't fault people for choosing Steam over GOG in a case like this. My main worry right now is actually whether GOG will be able to handle the early patch(es).

I had an extra chunk of download before on steam, I thought that was the patch downloading. Might be wrong, but I think it already downloaded.

Same here. Finished preloading yesterday and today PoE was downloading some 200mb data. Could be the compressed patch

I'm sure the patch will arrive as soon as the game is unlocked. Obsidian is a reputable company and they won't want to disappoint fans. I worry if GoG will also have it which is why I went Steam even though I really like GoG.

Because GoG does not do preloading, I would not be surprised if the GoG release would be already patched with Day 0 patch at 9am Pacific time.

Semi off topic but has anyone heard rumors if the day 1 patch will include balance changes to the Wizard damage spells vs Druid damage? I've seen various videos where people say Wizard damage is a bit underpowered compared to Druids, so wondering if that's true and if they intend on tweaking the damage on day 1.

I'm interested in knowing how the DRM-free patches that are going to be put up here will compare to steam getting patches. It would be cool if this were the first place to get the updates.

It seems sensible that GOG's install will be the same as the disc one so it may be possible to grab the patch from here and cut out GOG's testing and installer creation.

 

I'd imagine they won't be pushing the initial patch even if thats true. They will have enough to worry about with all the extras being downloaded here.

For those using steam, restart in offline, then restart to online and there will be a 119mb(or somewhere around there) update for PoE.

Weird, I tried that but couldn't see a patch. Maybe I'm missing where it should offer the update. I tried going to my library and right clicking on PoE but couldn't see options to update or any updates in the Recent News. What am I doing wrong?

Yesterday when I finished the 6gb preload, after a couple of hours, my PoE updated again. I don't know what's the size of that update but it took no more than 20 mins to finish. 

 

What could that be?! Hmmm
