Kingdom Come: Deliverance is the debut project of Warhorse Studios and promises to be one of the most realistic medieval games to date. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait a bit longer before we’ll know if that’s true because the game just recently got delayed. Initially expected to launch sometime later this year, Kingdom Come: Deliverance was pushed back until February 13, 2018 when it will launch for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The announcement was made earlier today via a new gameplay video, which you can see below.
As you can tell from the video above, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a very narrative-focused game that puts a lot of emphasis on realism. The upcoming title takes place in the Kingdom of Bohemia during the 15th century and features a number of historical figures that lived during that time, such as Charles IV. Just like in The Witcher games, the medieval-themed world of Kingdom Come: Deliverance is rife with political intrigue and you, unsurprisingly, get sucked up in the middle of it. Taking on the role of a young blacksmith who just witnessed the death of his family, you start off small in the game, but you’ll ultimately end up shaping major events in your quest to avenge your family and restore order to Bohemia.
While some of the animations and lip sync could do with a bit more polish, Kingdom Come: Deliverance overall looks extremely promising in this new trailer. As mentioned above, however, we’re still a ways off from launch so we’re likely to see a lot more improvements until then. In fact, the game seems to have been delayed specifically so that Warhorse Studios can have plenty of time to make it as good as they can, which is always nice to hear. This is especially true in a day and age when many games launch in an incomplete or broken state. Looking at you Mass Effect Andromeda.
If you’re excited about the release of Kingdom Come: Deliverance but also sad because of the delay, I think we may have just what you need.
