Realistic medieval open world RPG? I hope that means there are parts in the game where we have to sit around doing jack shit while we wait for a war and random bubonic plague infections. Warhorse Studios just revealed their work on a next-gen/PC game that sounds impressive, but let’s hope it can deliver.

Rooted within the Holy Roman Empire during the late Middle Ages, Kingdom Come: Deliverance promises 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.
