Warhorse Studios previously announced an upcoming game for PC, PS4 and the Xbox One by the name of Kingdom Come: Deliverance last December without so much of a hint the developers were chasing donations from the crowd funded medium of – Kickstarter! One month on and a Kickstarter page later, Warhorse has successful reached its Kickstarter goal for Kingdom Come: Deliverance in less than two days!
So, why should “WE” get excited? The game is rooted within the Holy Roman Empire during the late Middle Ages, and Warhorse promise a first-person seat to a harsh and brutal power struggle for the throne. As players traverse expansive, strikingly detailed locales, they’ll grapple with a range of period-accurate fighting techniques, horseback combat, open-field sieges, and large-scale battles, all while developing relationships and a reputation that will inform the greater story. Kingdom Come: Deliverance promises no magic, high fantasy or mythical overtones – it draws its inspiration instead from historically authentic characters, themes, and warfare.
Quoted by Game Director and Lead Designer Dan Vávra:
While we were always confident in our vision for Kingdom Come: Deliverance, we never in our wildest dreams expected a response like this…We’re humbled by the outpouring of support, and admittedly a bit shellshocked. We can’t thank our supporters enough. We are prepared to give everything we have to make an unforgettable game.
Warhorse has confirmed that Kingdom Come: Deliverance will be funded through completion. The game is an open world AAA action-adventure RPG still set for initial release in 2015.
