Great news for all RPG fans as the Kickstarter campaign for Kingdom Come: Deliverance has already met its initial £300K goal. Obviously this is great news as Warhorse was unable to sign a deal with a publisher due to the nature of this RPG. What was it you publishers claimed? That the game would not attract gamers because it did not feature dragons? Guess again.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a first-person, open world, realistic RPG that will take you to Medieval Europe in a time of great upheaval and strife. The game will be released in three acts and each one of them will last 30 hours.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance will be coming on the PC, as well as Xbox One, PS4, Mac, Linux in 2015 (Q4).
Here are the game’s key features:
Non-linear story lets you choose between being a villain or a savior. Every quest can be solved in multiple ways.
A revolutionary combat systembased on inverse kinematics, the only one of its kind to offer a rich, authentic yet easy-to-control, first-person melee experience. Based on actual 15th century fighting techniques and designed in cooperation with medieval martial arts experts.
Improve your character. Different play styles – warrior, rogue or bard – can be mixed and matched as you see fit. You can develop your skills, earn new perks, and fine-tune your equipment.
Large realistic, medieval-themed, open world landscape covering 3.5 square miles and 30 hours of gameplay (in first act, out of 3 total).
Lead the charge in enormous, open field battles and sieges. You are no superhero. If you’re going to take on an army of enemies, you better find one of your own to back you up.
Take a trip through the Middle Ages: Traverse sprawling cities, magnificent castles, towering, dark forests, and muck-strewn villages.
Discover this huge world from horseback or on foot. If you can see it, you can visit it.
A dynamic world comes alive. Every inhabitant plays a role in their communities, and as night follows day, you can watch people work, help them when needed, or try to interfere in their routine and see what happens.
Build relationships with characters, become a criminal or a local hero, seduce local women, threaten your enemies or pardon vanquished opponents.
Create your own weapons, cook, brew up potions, or dig around for silver. All crafting occurs in-game, using clever mini-games, rather than boring, soulless menus.
