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.

The game boasts historically-accurate medieval combat: for example, sword blows against armor are deflected, so the player has to find and exploit weaknesses in the opponent’s defenses. 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.
