Developer Warhorse Studios has just revealed the first trailer for their first next-generation game, Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Warhorse has been working on the game for over a year and a half now, and by the trailer it’s looking pretty good. The game is an open world medieval RPG set during the time of the Holy Roman Empire that will feature everything from first person melee combat, castle sieges, quests, battles and plenty more.
The first press release for the game reveals some additional details about the game which you can read just below.
“The team’s ambition for Kingdom Come: Deliverance is growing this ever-maturing sandbox genre in a believable, real-world context and scope,” remarked studio Creative Director Dan Vávra. “To that end, we’re harnessing CryENGINE®3, nonlinear narrative, varied freedom in character progression, and a consequence-laden living world in ways that have never been possible until now.”
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.
Kingdom Come is being worked on by a considerably talented team and will be utilizing CryEngine to power the next-gen open world. The talent on the team includes members who have worked on franchises such as Mafia, Arma, Operation Flashpoint, Crysis 3 and Forza Horizon.
It will be a while however until we see Kingdom Come: Deliverance, the game won’t be releasing until sometime in 2015 for the PC and next-generation platforms. We’re certainly interested in learning more about the game, and we’ll be closely monitoring the status of it.
