Give me ONE other early access game this decade that was not even UPDATED in nearly 5 months and not PATCHED in over 2 months. I mean common. The build we have is that perfect?!
In my games library Ive got currently in early DEV/access :
Song of Conquest. Weekly updates.
Space Haven. Weekly/Monthly updates.
Universe Sandbox. Weekly updates.
I could list dozens more with the same result.
For similar style game, Pathfinder WotR had weekly patches with monthly updates. Same with Solasta.
Was this the same for DOS2 during EA? Patches every 2 months plus??
Haven't checked those you mentioned but are those EA expanding ie "you get what you see" or do they follow Larians model ie "This portion that you can play tells nothing of what you'll get"?
Reason I ask is that for example Valheim get lot of small patches with bugfixes and have a long time between major updates because whenever a new big patch comes, the content is pretty much set to be in the end game, we're just available to play them now with bugs. As for Larians model that can, and probably will change between now and release where now available content might even get cut, it's less important to prioritize minor bugs with weekly patches.
