Open-world realistic RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance announced

Warhorse Studios announced its existence back in 2011, starting with a small team including the creator of Mafia and other folks from Mafia as well as Arma, and teasing the sort of things one would expect from such people: open worlds and realistic settings. After a lot of peeks here and there, Warhorse has finally announced its first game, an open-world RPG set in the Holy Roman Empire and named Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

Warhorse Studios announced its existence back in 2011, starting with a small team including the creator of Mafia and other folks from Mafia as well as Arma, and teasing the sort of things one would expect from such people: open worlds and realistic settings. After a lot of peeks here and there, Warhorse has finally announced its first game, an open-world RPG set in the Holy Roman Empire and named Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

Quite unconventionally for a medieval RPG, Deliverance won't have a jot of magic or fantasy, Kotaku reports. What it will have is a non-linear story and first-person combat, including fighting from horseback, large battles, and castle sieges. Splendid!

As lovely as it sounds, Warhorse has had a pig of a time finding a publisher, which it detailed in a recent blog post. Apparently the games industry is a cold and uncaring place. Who knew!

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is expected to launch in 2015 on PC and next-gen consoles. Hit the official website to follow it, and check this announcement trailer:

      I really want this game to find a good publisher or another investor. I love the idea of an RPG in this setting without having any of the fantasy tropes or magic plot devices used to get the writers out of a corner.

      The first person melee combat of Chivalry: ME also has me convinced it can be done right after Bethesda games have done it wrong so many times.

      Nope. No gameplay, no hype. Tired of these cgi movies in games. You want my money? Show me the game in motion. Not your talent at making movies.
