With this partnership, Kingdom Come: Deliverance will get both a physical and digital release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For the PC version, the physical release will be handled by Deep Silver, while the digital release will be carried out by Warhorse.
A final release date has yet to be divulged, but it was revealed that one will be announced in “the near future.” Both the physical and digital versions will share a simultaneous launch.
Never heard of Kingdom Come: Deliverance? No worries — here’s everything you need to know via the game’s Kickstarter:
“A first-person, open world, realistic RPG that will take you to Medieval Europe in a time of great upheaval and strife. A humble, young blacksmith loses everything to war. As he tries to fulfill the dying wish of his father, Fate drags him into the thick of a conspiracy to save a kidnapped king and stop a bloody conflict. You will wander the world, fighting as a knight, lurking in the shadows as a rogue, or using the bard’s charm to persuade people to your cause. You will dive deep into a sweeping, epic, nonlinear story from Daniel Vávra, an award-winning designer from the Mafia series. Our unique, first-person combat system lets you wield sword or bow in both one-on-one skirmishes and large-scale battles. All of this – and more – brought to life beautifully with next-gen visuals delivered via Cryengine.”
- Non-linear story lets you choose between being a villain or a savior. Every quest can be solved in multiple ways.
- A revolutionary combat system based 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.
Honestly, I may get a copy of each, after all this is perhaps my most anticipated game for 2017.
