Was thinking of trying this out but the minimum specs are like exactly my processing power lol. I guess it's time to upgrade again :)

Got my code, was not going to pick up the game but a 15-day trial is not bad at all.

Thanks for the code. I was on the fence about this game and unwilling to pay to try it out.

Wow, seriously lame on the part of the Fallen Earth team here. The patcher is claiming their server will take 11 days to fully patch the game. I hope this speeds up.

My thoughts exactly.

Really FE? Really? a 583MB download but like 4GB in patching?

It would not take that long to download 4GB. Patchers should be just that, for patching, not for downloading a whole game.

Had the same problem. I think it was a firewall or virus software issue for me at first. I re-booted and now I'm down to just under 5 days... at least I'll have 10 days to play! Haha.

It has to be the most depressingly inaccurate time estimator ever.

I went from 4 days 20 hours to 2 days 19 hours in about 15 minutes.

And the Updater stops responding to my system soon after starting it. I think it is still loading it just does not update the screen and shows as unresponsive in my task manager.

And yet...I'm excited about being able to play...

Well, this thing is clearly as good as a Win95 download time estimator. I've got 5 minutes left now.

Lots of people had problems with long estimates, and patcher lock-ups. Most people got through it fine and just the estimations were off. Others (like myself), had to find a different patcher download on the official FE forums. Sorry I don't have the link, I had to do forum searches for it.

Or, just keep restarting it, it'll get done eventually. Not the best option, but it does work. On a side note, only the initial patching has done this as far as I've seen.

They must have one horrid server to be running the patcher off of.

CO is having a free weekend next week and so I downloaded that, not only was the file a bit bigger (total wise) I was already at 10% in the first 10 minutes.

However FE will be done soon enough, left it on over night but I do not think it made to much progress.

I already got all mine from Ten Ton Hammer earlier today. You're kinda late to the party this time Massively.

Um... late to the game in giving away 2000 free trial keys? Whatever. You'll be downgraded soon enough.

Thanks for the key Massively! I've been wanting to try this game out for a while now.

I've been watching this game from afar, and a two week trial is just what I needed. I'm the kinda guy who doesn't buy new games right off the bad without a free trial first.

Ok, nevermind, I tried to use the key and it says this key has already been used!

What the....?!

I give up.

Used Ten Ton Hammer instead, thanks to the above poster for reminding me.
