  • When you say Windows, does that mean the Windows 10 Edition or the Windows Steam version? I have the Windows 10E
  • Probably the steam version.  Which is all I've heard about with this release.  So let me ask you, with the E version, you can only install from the Windows Store correct? If that's true, then clearly its talking steam.
  • Yes the 10E is only available on the Windows Store. When i got the game i had no idea there was a steam version. I may grab the game on Steam after waiting a few to see if anything from this update makes it over the Windows Store version.
  • Cool!!  I can't wait.
