    Because, the trailer... did not use final footage. It was made to announce the game. Everything is considered place holder until the game is released.

    The "Enhanced" mode will be 4K compatible, native widescreen, global illumination, updated shadows, ambient occlusion, in game AA..
    As I said, updated textures are a possibility and is something the team are looking at. But, the key is to not loose the feel of the original game's visuals.
    Updated models, again... possible... but a very, very small possibility. But people should not plan on it.
    And, with the Kingpin Community Council that was announced, fans will be able to play test and offer direct feedback so we can make it the best possible version of Kingpin.


    But, why release it? Because the main goal is the fix the core gameplay as well as update the visuals.
    A big focus of the Enhanced release will be to better balance the game's difficulty and pacing. Weapons, quests and inventory. How the player is informed during their time with the game.
    Do you know how many people had/have no idea you could loot enemy bodies for money? There are still people who were unaware of that, because the game never tells you.

    It's about making Kingpin the best game it could be.

    Question.....Will I be able to “bunny hop”? The original kingpin was infamous for bunny hopping!

    Is multiplayer going to change at all? I’m really looking forward to playing multiplayer....if there’s a community.

    Goal is to make it feel like the original. Movement is key.

    Is this game delayed because of Corona?

    No.
    3DR and Slipgate Ironworks are a global studio. With people working digitally from their home.
    Only a handful of people, maybe 8 or so, work from the office in Denmark.

    Kingpin is moving along nicely, and we have a reveal planned. It's just taken a bit longer then originally planned, as this is being done without the original source code. As that code was lost.

    Thanx for your reply. I was looking @Steam and saw Q2 as release date that's why i asked.

    Yeah, the Q2 date on Steam was a place holder. And it's easier to simply leave it as is until we have a more defined release window.

    Is it still on track anyhow?
    It seemed to have a lot of "Steam" post announcement then it kinda died off.
    For once i was happy to see it happen but then it just went totally radio silent.

    Yes.
    It is still being worked on, the team are doing very well.

    Since the original Source Code for Kingpin is lost, it's taking longer then anticipated, but they are making good progress.
    We hope to have some news in the near future.
