Kingdom Come: Deliverance screenshot of a massive battle

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an upcoming medieval RPG that aims to be as realistic and immersive as it can possibly be. What this means in gameplay terms is that you won't be throwing fireballs at dragons or beating down scores of bandits with your own bare hands. Instead, if you're smart, you'll get some backup before tackling groups of enemies, avoid them through a bit of trickery, or at the very least attempt to isolate your foes so that you can defeat them one-on-one through sheer martial prowess.

While the recently posted video does not feature much combat, it will give you a pretty damn good idea of the type of decisions you will have to make over the course of a single quest, as well as the consequences that come with such decisions. Have a look, its quite an interesting video:


If the developers can keep this level of decision-making present throughout the entire game I'd say Kingdom Come: Deliverance will have a solid chance of being one of the more engaging RPGs released in recent years. Its obviously a bit janky and the characters look like they're dead inside while talking, but the scope is so massive that it might just be worth overlooking those flaws.  

Whatever the case may be, we'll find out soon enough as Kingdom Come: Deliverance is set to release this February 13th. You can learn more, or just check out some of the other gameplay videos, by heading over to either the official website or Steam
