Warhorse Delivers the Kingdom
Warhorse Studios is bringing Open World to the Old World. The independent, Czech, developers who have only been up and running for 18 months, announces their debut title, Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Set to be released on PC and Next-gen consoles in 2015, the action-adventure, role-playing game has a non-linear story, and never before seen first-person melee combat.
The team seem to have a lot of experience, being involved with some awesome AAA titles like Mafia, Crysis, ArmA and Operation Flashpoint franchises. There is definitely no shortage of creative talent within this team, which should lead to a title of epic proportions. Studio Creative Director, Dan Vavra remarked:
"The team's ambition for Kingdom Come: Deliverance is growing this ever-maturing sandbox genre in a believable, real-world context and scope. 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."
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is set deep in the Holy Roman Empire during the late Middle Ages. The game promises a first-person seat to the harsh brutal power struggle for the throne. As well as players travelling around an expansive, highly detailed world. They will also come across period-accurate fighting techniques, horseback combat, open-field sieges, and large-scale battles. There are relationships to form, as well as a reputation across the land. The game is shaping up to be a good-looking title, which should be quite popular with fans of these types of games.
