We all know that developers perform research for their games, but we enjoy the details. In a new trailer, Kingdom Come: Deliverance aims to give you realistic medieval combat without having to spend years as a squire. All of this is shown from a movie armory that houses more weapons than Ted Nugent.
There are a variety of weapons to choose in Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The ax is great for attacking, a polearm gives you some space to work, and a sword is the all purpose killing tool. Each weapon uses physics to determine how it will attack. For example, the sword will slide off another sword or armor.
An armored opponent is more difficult to slay. One hit may not be enough, but repeated blows in the same place will weaken and break that armor. With thirty target areas, you have to carefully choose where to apply your steel, and the enemy is looking for the same on you.
Stamina is the most important resource to manage. It dictates whether you can block, and is directly impacted by your actions and any injuries you have. Eating and drinking are critical to surviving a fight, because skipping a meal will lower your available stamina. It has never been so important to eat all your vegetables.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an open world RPG, and your character will be avenging the death of his parents. In the time of the Holy Roman Empire, you will solve quests, choose how to fight and level up with new skills and equipment, and make decisions as you interact within a historical time period.
Go medieval without going to a renaissance fair when Kingdom Come: Deliverance sallies forth onto shelves on February 13th, 2018.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
