Game release: “Kingdom Come: Deliverance” (PC,PS4,Xbox One)

Warhorse Studios brings back the glory and horror of medieval times with open-world RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

There are so many daily releases that it’s difficult to keep track of them all, especially in the indie scene. It’s often not even clear what makes a AAA game and what an indie developer can achieve (as could be seen with Ghost of a Tale). Considering that the studio comprises alumni who have worked on titles like the two Mafia games, Operation Flashpoint, and ARMA, it comes as no surprise that the expertise shows in the final product, a first-person open world single player RPG.

Realism in a medieval game is already present if one takes out magic, so one won’t find dragons and sorcerers here, only people trying to survive in Bohemia, a European country that is torn apart by war and corruption because of Emperor Charles IV’s son Wenceslas who turns out to be a selfish monarch without any ambitions for his people. But it gets even more complicated when his half-brother and King of Hungary, Sigismund the Red Fox, captures him and starts to plunder the kindom. During all this, Henry, the son of a blacksmith, finds his village burned, and without a home he’s drawn to Lord Radzig Kobyla who tries to form a resistance against the invaders. With historical figures and a general emphasis on historical accuracy, the game certainly sets itself apart from the competition in terms of storytelling, but gameplay is also quite different, as combat is as realistic as the way how one’s actions change people’s perception. Part RPG, part medieval simulation, it’s a title that doesn’t only look great, with some abundance of violence thrown in, but might be one of the most realistic portrayals of medieval times.

The game has been out for over a month on PC and consoles, and it seems it has gathered some good criticism so far, with technical problems addressed as well. One can also buy the digital soundtrack and art book if one wants to further explore the rich medieval world created by Warhorse Studios.
