Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Action-adventure RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance has been announced for PS4 and Xbox One. Developer Warhorse Studios has revealed that Microsoft and Sony have both approved the title for their respective systems, and to celebrate, the developers are currently livestreaming a gameplay session. The rewards have also been updated accordingly, with tiers featuring a digital copy being open to either platform, depending on backer preference, and boxed rewards now including console copies (with goodies). Beta access remains for Linux, Mac, and Windows only, but the release notes that console betas might be added later. The game’s current Kickstarter campaign has exceeded its original goal several times over.
Warhorse Studios’ decision to go the Kickstarter route with their upcoming Medieval-era action-adventure RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance has paid off. In just two days, the campaign has managed to not only meet its goal of $500,000 but surpass it, and with room to spare. The studio announced that, with the success of the campaign, the game has been funded through completion. The ambitious titles is free of fantasy elements, leaving gamers to explore an open, dynamic world filled with branching dialog trees, period-specific combat, sieges, and crafting. There will also be role-playing elements for character leveling, and requirements that adventurers eat and sleep.
