Finally, a game that can be enjoyed by history buffs, medieval language experts, and master swordsmen all at the same time. As the name suggests, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an RPG set in 1403 in the region of Bohemia (now known as the Czech Republic). A total of $2.5 million was raised through crowdfunding during its five-year development period, with more than 50,000 supporters helping it come to fruition. All of the support appears to have stemmed from a perceived need in the market for an RPG that was rigidly historical, extremely realistic, and open-ended. As a result, Kingdom Come: Deliverance was released.
A story based on the actual political situation that unfolded in Bohemia at the time, as well as an array of regional dialects that the player must navigate through speech checks – Warhorse Studios, has gone to great lengths to recreate the era’s most iconic moments. Because of this, we have put together this comprehensive guide that covers all of the essential details and features you need to know about Kingdom Come: Deliverance, as well as a few extras for good measure.
KINGDOM COME: DELIVERANCE RELEASE DATE
Kingdom Come: Deliverance, which was released on February 13th, 2018, allows you to immerse yourself in the world of Medieval Bohemia right now. We did, and despite its clunkiness, we were impressed by its ambition and zeal.
KINGDOM COME: DELIVERANCE PLOT
In the real-world area between Sázava and Rataje nad Sázavou in the modern-day Czech Republic, Kingdom Come: Deliverance begins with the kidnapping and deposition of the newly crowned Wenceslaus IV of Bohemia by his more ambitious brother, Sigismund, and the subsequent restoration of Wenceslaus IV as King of Bohemia. Sigismund’s invasion is well underway when the player assumes control of Henry, the son of a blacksmith who returns home from an errand to find his village engulfed in war, his family murdered, and Sigismund’s invasion well underway.
It is a tale of vengeance that unfolds as you learn about different medieval Bohemian factions on your quest to exact vengeance on your parents’ deaths and fend off the invading forces.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s cinematics has been lavished with high-quality production value by Warhorse Studios. Three directors, a cast of 60 actors (including Brian Blessed), an in-house motion capture studio, and an entire department of animators to put it all together, Kingdom Come: Deliverance appears to be a cut above many other role-playing games.
KINGDOM COME: DELIVERANCE TRAILER
KINGDOM COME: DELIVERANCE GAMEPLAY
The realism of the role-playing options that players will have in Kingdom Come: Deliverance will be the focus of the game. In this world, there are no magical abilities or spiritual affinities that can assist you in your journey through it. Instead, players improve their abilities by honing them, which is reminiscent of the progression system found in The Elder Scrolls series. For example, if you want to improve your swordsmanship, you must engage in combat. If you win, your swordsmanship skill will improve; however, if the fight is too difficult, you will be forced to go to a trainer and duel with him or pay him to gain the experience you have been missing.
So, if zapping your enemies and conjuring demons aren’t options, what kinds of skills and stats can you improve? Swordsmanship, fencing, defense, and archery are all employed in combat. Outside of combat, you’ll want to keep an eye out for stats like strength, agility, speech, vitality, and charisma, as well as supplementary stats like visibility, conspicuousness, alchemy, noise, lockpicking, and horse whispering to keep an eye out for as well. The overall goal is to channel players into one of three different playing styles: bard, rogue, or warrior, depending on their skill level.
There is also a stat that does not neatly fit into any of the standard RPG categories, which is referred to as ‘badass.’ If you choose to use it in conversation options, it is represented by a pig wearing sunglasses and operates in a similar way to intimation or charm, but is based on your appearance and demeanor. If you are decked out in impressive plate armor and wielding a blood-stained sword, you are regarded as a ‘badass’ who should not be trifled with, and this results in new dialogue lines being unlocked for you to use.
The way you dress and conduct yourself has an impact on the options you have when speaking with NPCs. For example, if you dress in the manner of a beggar, you may find it easier to obtain information from them. Similarly, if you dress in more upscale clothing, you will be able to negotiate better prices with merchants.
All of this contributes to the most important element of modern-day role-playing games: the element of choice. Warhorse Studios has promised players that they will have nearly complete control over how they choose to approach quests and the game world as a whole. It is possible to cripple an enemy camp in two ways: either by launching a full-frontal assault or by sneaking in by donning enemy colors and talking your way past the guards. Once inside, you can sabotage their ability to fight back by poisoning their food or starting a fire in their arrow storage facilities, for example. You can also kill any NPC in the game, including important ones, but be prepared to deal with the ramifications of your actions.
