PC gamers will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The medieval RPG was originally set to release on PC sometime in the summer, but a spokesperson for Czech developer Warhorse Studios confirmed to Polygon that it is now coming together with the console versions at a later date in 2016.
Kingdom Come Deliverance Releasing Later in 2016 on all Platforms
The game caught the eye of many in the gaming community due to its promise of realistic sword fighting mechanics and a historically accurate representation of 15th century Europe. At first glance, the game looks similar to other first-person RPGs like The Elder Scrolls Oblivion or Skyrim. However this isn?t a fantasy game so don?t expect magic and dragons to make an appearance. Warhorse stresses that they want this to be an unflinching and realistic portrayal of medieval life.
?Enjoy a world of endless options: use your reputation or charisma to investigate crimes and influence the inhabitants of the reconstructed medieval Bohemia landscape to guide you on your quests. Overcome obstacles in multiple ways whether by diplomatic skills or brute force. Whatever you decide, you will have to face the consequences. Use various weapons, craft supplies, take part in historical battles, participate in castle sieges and master the art of sword-fighting.? Reads the game?s official description.
A small playable beta was recently released to Kickstarter backers a few days ago. Early feedback on the release was mostly positive. PC Gamer?s Chris Thursten said in his review:
?Kingdom Come feels like it’s heading for cult classic status?it has the ambition, the idiosyncratic commitment to realism, and the Kickstarter backers for that. If it gets the time it needs to deliver on all of its ideas, iron out the bugs and flesh out the world with non-placeholder acting then it has a chance at removing ‘cult’ from that equation.?
We hope the full game comes out soon.
