Warhorse Studios finally put the final nail in the release date coffin, settling on an early 2018 release where they’ll be competing against Ubisoft’s take on a religious Americana civil war in the form of Far Cry 5. The official release date for Kingdom Come: Deliverance has been established as February 13th, 2018 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The release date refers to a global worldwide release across European, American and other PAL territories.
To commemorate the news a new story trailer was released that explains the role of the player. The main character of the game is Henry, the son of a blacksmith. Henry’s village is razed to the ground by mercenaries carrying out the command of King Sigismund. Henry joins the resistance as a fighter who seeks to free Bohemia from the clutches of the monarchy. You can check out the video below.
That trailer was like 100 times better than I thought it would be.
This reminds me of the quality games we used to get back in the day on PC… the mid-budget titles that would completely surprise with their high-quality and endearing characters, sort of like the kind of games BioWare used to produce before they were overtaken by SJWs.
Anyway, the cinematics and storytelling were a big part of Kingdom Come’s development. Warhorse Studios put a lot of time and effort into the voice acting, the motion capture and the combat. Hopefully the actual gameplay will live up to and will be par the course with the cinematics. There’s nothing worse than having a flashy cinematic with rotten gameplay. It’s like going out dancing with a sexy chick only to find that she suffers from a bad case of swamp arse.
Nevertheless, Deep Silver appears to be handling the publishing and distribution duties for Kingdom Come: Deliverance on the home consoles. So gamers can expect to see the crowdfunded title appear on Microsoft and Sony’s system with release parity alongside the PC version.
