The Witcher 3 is by far my favourite game of the past decade and perhaps even beyond. As such, anytime another game wants to dip back into that well I’m incredibly there for it. Even if that game happens to be Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
I’ve been excited about Kingdom Come for a long time. Since it was first announced back in 2013, the idea of a historical RPG with simulation leanings sounded fun as hell. Now that it’s out, though, I’m a lot less excited.
Realistic/historical RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance discusses its first-person melee combat in its most recent video, also talking about the “thousands of hours” of research that went into developing it. Looks fun! The swordfighting, that is, not the research. Video’s embedded below, so make sure to give it a watch.
