Awesome! Thanks for the info. Glad I bought and redeemed it before this whole Kingmaker upgrade/trial has been set in order.
Yes I did, and refer to these two threads for why there was such a large update.
IF I read it correctly, aside from the minor changes there is going to be a new version of war of the roses released as Kingmaker edition, a free upgrade for all those that own the game that includes new maps and Assault and Assault Gate modes. There will be a free trial of the game and in preperation of that this patch puts that in place. The edition should release at the end of March. And there will be a Brian Blessed voice over premium DLC for $4.99 sometime this month. That is all paraphrasing and off memory but if you read those you will get more detailed information. Hope that helps and I'm pretty excited the new stuff looks like it will help the longevity of the game.
EDIT refer to this article. http://www.digitalsp...-roses-dlc.html
Nice that they reduced pole arm thrust damage too (or maybe a lot more than just that...). I only played the game for 30 minutes or so, and too many times did I get instakilled by a pole arm thrust.
