The first details of Warhorse Studios’ debut title, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, have been announced. The game is to be an open-world, action-adventure RPG featuring blockbuster production values, a nonlinear story and revolutionary, first-person melee combat. 

Studio Creative Director Dan Vávra: “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.”

The game will be rooted within the Holy Roman Empire during the late Middle Ages. Players will find themselves in a brutal power struggle, grappling with a range of period-accurate fighting techniques including horseback combat. 

Warhorse Studios promises the arrival of more details on January 20, 2014.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
