Kingdom Come: Deliverance Box Art

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an open-world action RPG developed by Czech company Warhorse Studios, and published by Deep Silver. It is set in 15th-century Bohemia, a part of the Holy Roman Empire, during the time of great upheaval following the death of emperor Charles IV. Players take on the role of Henry, the son of a humble blacksmith. After his family and entire village is massacred by an invading army, he is drafted into the service of lord Radzig Kobyla, who is leading the resistance.

A classless system is used for character advancement, and proficiency in different weapons as well as skills like lock-picking can be freely learned without restrictions to character archetypes.
