There hasn’t been much in the way of information regarding the story of Kingdom Come: Deliverance. However a new trailer for the game has emerged and the game that was once just a simple Kickstarter now looks and feels like a fully fleshed out game. You are a blacksmith’s son who has been thrown in the depths of war, and now you have to follow his story and avenge the death of your parents.
If you haven’t heard of Kingdom Come yet you are in luck. The game sets itself apart from most in the sense that it has been made to be historically accurate. You won’t find the stereotypical tropes of other medieval games like magic, or paranormal activity or even monsters. In this game it’s you, your sword and the gear you wear.
Bohemia – located in the heart of Europe, the region is rich in culture, silver, and sprawling castles. The death of its beloved ruler, Emperor Charles IV, has plunged the kingdom into dark times: war, corruption, and discord are tearing this jewel of the Holy Roman Empire apart.
One of Charles' sons, Wenceslas, has inherited the crown. Unlike his father, Wenceslas is a naive, self-indulgent, unambitious monarch. His half-brother and King of Hungary, Sigismund the Red Fox, senses weakness in Wenceslas. Feigning good will, Sigismund travels to Bohemia and kidnaps his half-brother. With no king on the throne, Sigismund is now free to plunder Bohemia and seize its riches.
In the midst of this chaos, you're Henry, the son of a blacksmith. Your peaceful life is shattered when a mercenary raid, ordered by King Sigismund himself, burns your village to the ground. By bittersweet fortune, you are one of the few survivors of this massacre.
Without a home, family, or future you end up in the service of Lord Radzig Kobyla, who is forming a resistance against the invasion. Fate drags you into this bloody conflict and shoves you into a raging civil war, where you help fight for the future of Bohemia.
The impressive trailer shows what you should expect from the upcoming game including the original fighting system and the ever beautiful world. I have been following this game since it was originally funded over 4 years ago and I am super excited for it to finally come out February 13th. Warhorse Studios the creators of the game have done a really good job keeping people up to date with the development of the game, a partial reason why the game has thus far been so successful. Regardless of how well it performs I can't wait to do a full review of the game when it releases.
