Kingdom Come Deliverance will have a launch day update weighing in at 23GB, developer Warhorse Studios has confirmed.
The patch is double the initial install size of the game and is intended to fix a number of bugs and other issues ahead of its release.
Executive Producer Martin Klima explained the reasoning behind the hefty update on gaming forum ResetEra:
‘The production realities of game development mean that a ‘release’ version has to be finalized some time before the actual release date. We could have used this time to get some rest, or we could use it to create some additional content and sell it to you as DLC, but we went back to the version-to-be-released and worked on it.
The results are obvious: quests are more balanced, RPG progression is smoother, the game runs faster and every facet of the game got more polish,’ explained Klima.

While we found the visuals, voice acting and questionable pace of Kingdom Come Deliverance troubling in our preview, we couldn’t help but admire the passion towards its historical setting.
‘Ultimately, though, Kingdom Come deliberately refrains from the usual pizzazz you’d expect from the genre, and in that shows flashes of originality that may serve it very well indeed. It won’t be for everyone, but the niche to whom it does appeal will probably buy into it hook, line and sinker.’
