I'm thinking about picking up this game, but am not sure if I should get the Graviteam or Matrix version? Getting the Matrix version would be slightly easier, but I'm worried about compatibility of the Matrix version with patches, campaigns, etc. put out by Graviteam. What's the deal?

I have the Graviteam version but would have held on for the matrix version had I known one was in the pipeline. I may be old fashioned but I prefer to have a CD in a case where possible. If that is not an issue I am not sure it makes any difference either way.

Alan, thanks for the response. Actually, I don't care at all about a CD, I am mainly worried about patches; in another Matrix game I bought (FoG), there were some incompatabilities/delays between the patches released by the developer (Slitherine) and Matrix.

There aren't two different versions. Both are the same except here Matrix sells it. I do believe patches through Matrix will be easier and just a one click installer. Though i expect you could use a Matrix patch for the game bought from somewhere else.

I think people think now Matrix is selling then they now have a say in the game. Not so. Matrix are just a distributer.

This is what I'd like confirmation about, I guess from Matrix. I seem to recall that with a different game I had compatibilty issues between the patches issued by Matrix and by the developer. And will I be able to use the campaigns offered by Graviteam even if Matrix doesn't offer them? Does Matrix plan to offer all of the campaigns?

Hi 76mm,

Our release has all the existing updates included, which saves you over a gigabyte of extra downloads and a rather complex updating process. Future Graviteam updates will work fine with our release, but we also plan to put then in an easier installer for our customers.

We will also have the DLCs available in our store in the future.

Regards,

- Erik

About how long before you do have them available? This month?

I bought from Gamersgate before Matrix offered it. Are you saying that future updates offered by Matrix will work with what I bought from Gamersgate?
