The fourth and penultimate episode of Dreamfall Chapters — Book Four: Revelations — is now available as a free download for both GoG- and Steam users.
 
If you're playing the game through Steam, it should automatically update to version 4.0.4 when you launch your Steam client. 
GoG users will have to download the new version which will also include the complete upgraded versions of Books One, Two and Three.
 
Book Four includes a brand new, feature length episode of Dreamfall Chapters, along with further Unity 5 fixes and enhancements. 
 
Please note that some players will receive a dialogue when clicking 'Start Book Four' stating that they'll need to replay the end of Book Three by loading their last save game, either automatically or manually. This is due to changes in how story flags are handled, and will not affect all players.
 
Affected players will only need to replay the final scene from Book Three, before starting Book Four. We apologise in advance for this inconvenience. 
 
Version 4.0.4 includes only English voice and text. German and French subtitles will be added soon. 
 
Enjoy the episode, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback!

If you're playing on Steam and not seeing the update, remember to opt out of the beta.

edit: You may have to restart Steam for it to update the settings properly. Right click on the Steam-icon in the task bar and select exit, and then once it's quit relaunch it again. Rebooting your computer should also do the trick.

 

Also you can force steam to download the update if it's queued by going to your download manager and hitting the update symbol (upwards arrow into a line) on the right side of the Dreamfall Chapters entry there.

We're still waiting but HB is based in San Fran so they should be waking up soon and applying the update. Hang in there :)

Out of curiosity (since we were speaking about this earlier), how big did the GOG download end up being? The Steam download is 2.6 GB.

Only 7.48 GB. I was surprised.

Spectacular, folks. Especially the size.

 

I'll be home soon, expecting less than 3 hours of DL time.

*Gets to work*

 

*Phone Buzzes* 

 

"BOOK FOUR IS LIVE"

 

*dies a little*

 

This is going to be a looooooooooong day.

^This. 

 

It's like 6:40 in California right now. So people might not even be in the office yet. Since I'm assuming RTG has sent them the file, hopefully they'll be able to get it up promptly once their business day is in full swing. 

 

However, in the past, they've not been the best about that. Sometimes they do what seems to be nightly server syncs. But they've pushed updates through midday before so... Keeping fingers crossed!!

The game is expanding to 16.8 GB when installed so, yeah, nice job of compression on the part of GOG.

The GOG installer says it requires 16.9 GB to install, so that's some pretty impressive compression. I'll edit this post when I find out how much space it actually takes up after it's been installed.

 

EDIT: Ikon reported it's 16.8 GB when fully installed, but it's 16.5 GB for me. I assume the difference is due to the fact that this is the first time I've installed DFC on this rig.

Galaxy was planning to download *18 GB*. Thanks, Galaxy, I think I'll just download it manually. And maybe I won't even have to replay Book 3 if I manage to extract my savegames from this disk image here...

 

In any case, yay!
