Kingdom Come: Deliverance Now Available, New Launch Trailer

Deep Silver and developer Warhorse Studios have released their epic, historical RPG – Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

Alongside the game’s release is a new launch trailer, which gives a nice overview of its historically-inspired story, its combat, and its mechanics.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Warhorse Studios:


You’re Henry, the son of a blacksmith. Thrust into a raging civil war, you watch helplessly as invaders storm your village and slaughter your friends and family. Narrowly escaping the brutal attack, you grab your sword to fight back. Avenge the death of your parents and help repel the invading forces!

Bohemia – located in the heart of Europe, the region is rich in culture, silver, and sprawling castles. The death of its beloved ruler, Emperor Charles IV, has plunged the kingdom into dark times: war, corruption, and discord are tearing this jewel of the Holy Roman Empire apart.
One of Charles’ sons, Wenceslas, has inherited the crown. Unlike his father, Wenceslas is a naive, self-indulgent, unambitious monarch. His half-brother and King of Hungary, Sigismund the Red Fox, senses weakness in Wenceslas. Feigning good will, Sigismund travels to Bohemia and kidnaps his half-brother. With no king on the throne, Sigismund is now free to plunder Bohemia and seize its riches.

In the midst of this chaos, you’re Henry, the son of a blacksmith. Your peaceful life is shattered when a mercenary raid, ordered by King Sigismund himself, burns your village to the ground. By bittersweet fortune, you are one of the few survivors of this massacre.

Without a home, family, or future you end up in the service of Lord Radzig Kobyla, who is forming a resistance against the invasion. Fate drags you into this bloody conflict and shoves you into a raging civil war, where you help fight for the future of Bohemia.

Key Features:

  • Massive realistic open world: Majestic castles, vast fields, all rendered in stunning high-end graphics.

    Really excited for this one. Hopefully its good.

  • Word on the street is that its got bugs galore, but considering it is a massive open world RPG I’m nit exactly surprised that is a pretty common trend for the genre after all.

    my name is wade barret and i got some bad news for you, if you can tolerate bethesda’s day one buggy mess, then step right up and this game is for you.

    Even with a day one patch that literally doubles the file size it’s got some issues. It’s a shame, but the game itself seems fine, it just needs a bit more time to iron out the bugs.

    Why, why are GOG customers punished with a two week wait?!

  • HeartBeat328

    Well, I’m just following my usual policy either way; wait for reviews. Though I did try the game in alpha state and it ran excruciatingly poorly. Hows the performance?
