KI Definitive Edition PC Content Transfer

i was about to buy definitive edition when its first released after i start new topic for “whats goin on exactly” stuff. anyway they said after holiday actually they didint say which holiday(im not even american) so. im still waiting for windows 10.

Yeah man same, not sure what Holiday here. All we have left is Thanksgiving and Christmas for the majority of folks here in the US. So hopefully roughly in the next 2 months we will get something nice for the PC folks who waited.


They advertise it here too. Pretty misleading. I guess the wait game is on, but at least I can play the Xbox One version in the meanwhile… Frustrating, but I probably would have chose to wait even if I did know in advance that it was advertised incorrectly.

And here’s what the card in question that I purchased looked like.

Devs should give some sort of reply that’s better than “holidays”, being that they don’t even have support. The only way to contact them is through this forum, and they haven’t replied to this topic after a whole week of it being up. It’s getting hard not to feel super disappointed in the way this situation has been handled so far (Both now, and before in regards to the others who have been waiting for solid info regarding the money they ALREADY put down for this).

seriously we need clear information. i thought developers want to sell their games i dk what these people trying to do. avoiding all questions.

any news about this situation? rukizzel recently answered in this thread here but to be honest I don’t really get what he’s saying with it. I feel he worded it deliberately ambiguous.

so I guess the characters are then considered part of the “app bundle” if they don’t get unlocked on PC. or did anything change and it works now?

Not ambiguous at all. The DE is an app which does nothing more than launch content. That content is either KI, KI Classic 1 & 2, or the in-app experiences like soundtrack, bts vids, etc.

So, in-app experiences are not available on PC at this time, but digital purchasers still get the cross-buy benefits of KI (game). (Classics have always and only been Xbox One, so that’s why I am not counting them.)

I got a reply on twitter once again stating we’ll get the content later this year (Which I accept, though I will still feel ripped off until I get what I paid for, which was mainly all of the actual content for the game, which has been out for a while), so both the DE app AND the game content are currently not being given to us. I’m sure you know that, but I want to keep that clear. I appreciate you taking time out to reply to this discussion and clear up some things regarding what you had said previously.

thanks for trying to clarify the situation, but I still don’t really get it. please bear with me here. so if I understand you correctly the expected behavior is that PC players do get the characters if they bought the digital DE? because until now multiple users here in the forums claimed that they bought the digital DE and still didn’t get any char on PC (codename4711 being one of them). which makes me wonder if it is an issue that was fixed or if this is the way it is supposed to be and one has to wait for the PC release of the DE for it to work.

I’d love to finally start with the game and get me the full package but as long as this remain an unclear situation I’d rather wait then spending 40 bucks and test it for myself.

You will get everything the DE stated, except the app that launches the bonus extras. So characters, modes and game content itself will be available on PC, just not the extras.

Just curious, has anyone that has purchased the digital DE tried to download KI on PC ( not the DE version) and play it?

I noticed in @YOSHi112 's pic it showed KI included in the bundle…has anyone tried to download the components of the bundle and see if it works?

Sorry, just trying to help troubleshoot.

I have, no dice. Shows my stats from testing the game on an Xbox One, but with only Jago (From unlocking him) and whatever character is on rotation. Appreciate it though, any ideas help while we wait!

Yeah, I’ve been playing KI mostly on PC ever since that version came out, so when it comes to stuff like the DE issues I haven’t had to deal with it, and that makes it hard to figure out what might be causing issues for others.

sure that’s the theory. in practice though I haven’t heard from a PC user where this actually works.

that picture is from the XBox section of the store since the DE isn’t available in the windows section to begin with. since on PC you’re supposed to buy the content in the in-game store, there aren’t any additional components you could download aside from the main game.

Because it isn’t going to be compatible until they push the update which is coming around Holiday season, still a couple weeks away.

which was my latest state of knowlede but this contradicts what rukizzel was saying. according to him the extra content of the DE launcher app will become available later on PC (since it’s not ported yet) while all the actual game content should be accessible right now.

Which it absolutely is not. I own DE digital and nothing is available on PC.

Rukizzel’s comment is confusing. He really does make it sound like the characters should be available now, and the extra content later. Which would be awesome! That’s fine. But it isn’t the case. Nothing is available on PC right now if you own DE digital.

Maybe he meant that the Xbox One version is just a launcher app, and that PC users will get all the in-game content in the future, but the in-app experiences will not be available.

I don’t think anyone is really expecting that content. We just want to be able to use the characters/skins/etc. At the least.

Also it’d be nice if Xbox 360 stick support was fixed… That would be a plus too.


that’s what I thought, thanks for the confirmation. so it’s back to the waiting game. hopefully we’ll see a PC release next month.

next month ?! dude…
