Make sure you completely exit steam after deleting local content to make sure it's got the update. Easiest way to be sure is to reboot.

Austria Hungary did it. I tried expanding early on and this new "sphere" caused them to declare war on me! It was too good. Lol

The Linux version will only be available on Steam. We will be turning it on shortly - just making sure we are setup to debug problems if they are reported.

What video cards will you be supporting? Many laptops do have integrated intel ...

One suggestion: make a script that checks the system telling what libraries/moduls are missing.

I should be able to download that one in advance, few kB and check my system.

  • Making History: The Great War Developer Diary 4: The Steam “Early Access” Experience
    January 20, 2015 

    With the game about to officially release on Jan 29th, lead engineer Dave McCool, MH designer Ralph Gerth and I (Chris Parsons, product manager), were reflecting recently on our experience having a game available to the public on Steam’s Early Access. We’ve been hearing a lot about Early Access lately, including some criticism from players who bought in and then were unhappy when the title they purchased remained in Early Access too long, or, in some cases, never emerged. These are perfectly valid concerns. Like Kickstarter projects, buying into a creative process in the early stages of development isn’t a sure thing. So what’s the view from the developer side?
