I have seen it mentioned before but has there been any thought in how Beta tester will be able to Download the beta

Through

Reverie World Studios sever

Or Through

Steam
Gamersgate
Direct2drive

I know I would prefer through a Reverie client download or if i had to choose a 3rd party Direct2drive is ok...

I just hope if its third party we dont have to pay any kind of money to get it...

Well the full game will be available for digital download and in stores...
I doubt it will be released on steam.
Uh I don't know what gamersgate it. But as for the beta my guess is Reverie will just upload the client to their server, really not a big matter.

Post was not meant to be big deal... was just curious, it seems more often these days betas are hitting File download sites instead of Dev sites. And some file download sites suck hard.

And When EQ2 sold Digital downloads for there latest expansion it was quicker and easier to pull it down from direct2drive.com then there own Launcher...

Any idea of size of Download yet?

Make sure your information is correct before you post it and start a horrendous rumor. :p

It will most likely be hosted on our server, but this is not confirmed. We don't have the extra money to throw around to pay another place to host it, after all.;)

You will see when it happens. Over-speculation can lead to over-assumption and make false preconceptions.

Steam

As a producer, I`ll have to say no comment. You never know - might be.

As a player, not affiliated to Reverie World Studios, I`d say - out of our dead cold hands.

Sorry I sounded so certain;
I just didn't think you'd be using the steam online system to power the multiplayer.

Over 9000.


9000 mb appox 9gb is believable.....

Age of Conan was 15000 mb on a Download Which I also beta tested..

This whole posts was to get an idea of things.

I hate steam. Really hope you aren't going to use steam.

I like steam, never had a problem with it besides waiting for new released games, I hope we do because it will provide a larger population for dof, and the more the marrier!
I highly doubt the game will be 9 gb in size, quite smaller then that.

Just put it up on rapidshare. :p

In response to the post below and others. You people mustn't go through life unaware of the "over 9000" meme. Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBk5KNpiHhI&feature=related

Over 9000 is actually a corny joke from the series of Dragonball Z, I think that's what Bryan meant.
And I love steam, it's awesome. I hope it will be released on steam anyway, as you said, Joseph, it may get more players to the game.
I can't wait to play it myself though, I want to make some music videos. I love making videos for games I love and not many have an editor where you can make your own scenes. I want to make it look like a lord of the rings 4 trailer xD

Personally I hate Steam...

Yes a fileshare site would increase players. but Steam servers suck on high traffic downloads....

Direct2drive has much better servers on high traffic releases..

Just an opinion though

i like steam because you can buy games there and download them any time anywhere. like itunes.

Why not just make it a torrent? That makes it cost considerably less money and everyone beta testing can help other beta testers get the download faster. Since the devs themselves would be making the torrent it would be perfectly legal and everything.

Dude, how long could it possibly take to download something from a regular server. Why are you all complaining about this, and making it so difficult. Rev will just upload the client somewhere, hell, I'll host it on dofsource if you want. Cheese!

That solves the getting the game but not the playing and supporting the game, torrents are good for fast downloading but it wouldnt solve the fact that the game needs a server to play its MMO on... with a server for that they may as well add the download of the game to it

I'll just host it on dofsource. You can d/l it there. :3
I'll see if I can provide a torrent as well. (but only for the client, not like illegal or anything).
