It might not be the Flash Gordon game we know you’ve been waiting for but Zoltan himself, Brian Blessed, is included in the more than fifty-strong cast for Warhorse Studios upcoming RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
News from a Warhorse Studios press release today reveals that experienced actors Brian Blessed and Tom McKay are among a cast of more than fifty actors from the Czech Republic, the UK, and the USA, for Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The actors have contributed a joint total of more than 240 minutes of full motion capture as well as their vocal talents at the developer’s in-house motion capture studio. The studio had this to say about the addition of legendary British actor Blessed,
“With Brian Blessed, Warhorse Studios secured themselves a legend from the British actor’s guild who plays the role of Lord Konrad Kyeser, a famous German military engineer that will aid the player on his journey.”
McKay takes on the role of the main character Henry, who sets out to avenge his family and recover the sword he forged with his father – played by Matthew Wolf. As the player journeys through Kingdom Come: Deliverance, they’ll be dragged into a war against invading forces aided by young Lord Hans Capon, played by Luke Dale.

The upcoming open world RPG from Warhorse Studios takes a historical focus, emphasising realism and historical accuracy and featuring genuine historical figures as NPCs. We discussed some of the more realistic features, such as food spoilage, equipment breakage, and an eating and sleeping system that applies to the player and NPCs, when details were announced last year.
The inclusion of Brian Blessed just elevated this game from “one to watch” to “day one buy” here at the Pure PlayStation tower. GORDON’S ALIVE! Let us know what you think down in the comments.
Dom is a gaming orphan; after his surrogate father SEGA was killed in the console wars, he was adopted by Sony and raised by various PlayStation consoles. He swears he’s not biased in any way though, so that’s good enough for us.
