Kingdom Come: Deliverance Offers First-Person Sword Combat at E3

The Czech developers at Warhorse Studios will soon reveal more details about their upcoming game Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The game is a realistic, open world, first-person medieval RPG that was funded in 2014 via Kickstarter. In a recent update, a teaser of the Tech Alpha 0.4 was released, showing how combat will work in-game. The Alpha version will debut at this year’s E3 (June 16-18).

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a single-player RPG set in 15th century Europe. The Kingdom is facing an eminent crisis. The lack of a real king, corrupted nobility wanting to take over, and a divided aristocracy set the tone of the game. A hero, who is controlled by the player, wants to restore order and avenge his beloved’s death fighting the army of the king’s brother. “But beware – this is not a fantasy fairytale and you are not the chosen one.” warns the game’s description.

From time to time, the developers release a new Tech Alpha, which is made for demonstrating some game mechanics and general game technology to backers who pledged at the Baron Tier or higher through crowdfunding ($45+). At this year’s E3, the first-person sword combat will be showcased for visitors as part of the new Tech Alpha, which will later be available for those backers. A demo can be seen in the trailer above, showing how tackles, swings, rebounds, and recoil will work.

A huge fan of every kind of puzzle game, from minimalistic to the big productions. I like to discover how indie developers mess with the players' minds. I also talk about indie games in Brazil, as the editor-in-chief of Sem Tilt website.
