Will we be able to preload the game?

Recommended Posts

I do not understand how this game is not appearing in "Game Previews" or "Games Comming soon" on my Xbox one. How can you guys promote a PR with the xbox players if the game is only downloadable on the day it is released. Not one person in this world wants to download 60+ gb game at midnight on October 8th. This is an average of 2+ hours of download time..

 

I guess my only option is to change my location to NewZealand and download the game 24 hours before the actual release for my NA location since the servers are already up and running..

There was recently news of this game coming to Xbox featured on Inside Xbox.

But there is yet to be any sign of this game in the store or preview section. 

Im sure it will be added soon.

It’s possible the game might release on the 8th,  but based on GC’s track record to date, I wouldn’t count on it. Since they’ve already said that NA PVP is iterating the Xbox launch version over the 10 day window between, they may be waiting til last minute to release a preload version.

Now they don't bring up their game on steam only. If you work together with Microsoft, so you get no more window for delays. 8.10. Is set and will come.

That is not true forb. They still have to have their finished product pass Xbox QA. There is a good chance of a delay. 

There will now be a good window for delays every single time they update because of Xbox QA. Steam let them roll out anything when they wanted. Xbox will not be letting them do that.

That's true. Microsoft and Sony require certification before any software is released on their platforms, even patches.

They are doing such a bad job at advertising right now. It is shameful. Still don’t actually know the exact price. Still don’t know if it is midnight release or sometimes in the morning.

smh there is only 3 1/2 days left.

true. In the current state, I would not pay more then 10 euros for it. Its lightyears apart from a fullprice product. There is so much missing amd still not working good. That I belive is another reason why there bad decision have a even worst impact on player numbers.

Yes to this. This is very sub par to what they should be doing. As far as I am concerned, it is not happening on the 8th anymore. If they had everything gold then it would be set in stone. It is not set in stone just because we had a reveal.

I just can suggest you guys to set you XBox's Home-Nation as NewZealand and enjoy the game much sooner than intended time for your region.

Se yall in game on 8th!

I shall be holding out a few weeks after launch as I gather info on Xbox players experiences on Atlas. 

Crossplay is my concern as it hasn't been welcomed on other titles I have been playing. Sea of Thrives being one such game. They never did get it balanced and the 1v1 combat of Console Vs PC lacks equality, and can sour the whole experience.

That will not happen or work. If the game releases at midnight it will be pacific standard time at midnight. It won’t matter what time zone you go to. New Zealand people won’t be able to download until the 9th. Everyone gets it released at the same time and pacific standard time is usually what you go off of.

They do not specify a time. If this is a timed released as in the developers already uploaded it to the xbox live store and it passed all the checksums and security protocols. No matter the region the 8th is the 8th. Where in the post does it say anything about a timezoned release date?

Unless they are doing something waaaaaay out of the norm for Grapeshot (not likely) the game will release for Xbox for d/l at 12:01 EST or PST. There is a long track record of this on title after title. Most titles have been PST releases, but just to throw enough confusion into the mix they have had a handful that have released at EST.

Would be nice as 2/3 of the servers coming back are EU servers, that it'd be something like early evening in the EU when they come back online.

Thank you, 5pm GMT. 

For a weekday this is likely ideal for a lot of EU players.

Great news, shame about your diligence.

I can admit when I am wrong and I was actually 1 hour off. I was wrong. It is in fact 9 not 8 pst.

Well you predicted a lot of different times in various posts, so you were never going to be very far out with one of them.
