Monster Hunter: World and GTA V bow before the newcomer RPG.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a story-driven open-world RPG that immerses the player in an epic adventure in the Holy Roman Empire. The player incarnates Henry, the son of a blacksmith, dragged by fate into a bloody conflict and shoves him into a raging civil war, where he helps fight for the future of Bohemia. Before Kingdom Come: Deliverance was even released it received a ‘Best PC Game of the Gamescom’ award from Gamescom 2017 in Germany.
In January 2014, Warhorse launched a Kickstarter campaign for the realistic medieval RPG game. It ended up being the third most successful project, according to the number of backers, in 2014. With an initial goal of £300,000, it finally gathered over £1.1M. Warhorse Studios was also named among the World‘s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies on Kickstarter of 2015 by Fast Company.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is selling extremely well, according to Slovakian newspaper Hospodarske Noviny, selling over 500,000 copies across all platforms in the first two days. These impressive sales figures have landed Kingdom Come: Deliverance into second place in the UK charts, with only Fifa 18 selling better than the ambitious indie RPG.
You can buy Kingdom Come: Deliverance on Steam now for £39.99 / €49.99 / $59.99. It’s also available for PS4 and Xbox One.
