Realistic Medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance Reaches $2 Million Crowdfunding Mark, Will Open Limited PC Alpha Over Steam This Month
Kingdom Come: Deliverance, an in-progress RPG set in the Middle Ages and slated for a 2015 release, will be opening a limited alpha on October 22, the developer announced in its latest video update.
The update from developer Warhorse Studios starts with the announcement that the game's crowdfunding has hit the impressive $2 million mark. According to the game's list of stretch goals, this means that the game now has enough budget for better voiceover and motion capture actors. The video then goes on to announce the upcoming alpha.
The alpha for Kingdom Come: Deliverance will be available to the game's backers over Steam. The alpha will not be representative of the whole game, understandable considering the game has another full year until its release window. Instead, the alpha will contain a single town with NPCs milling about and a couple of side quests to look into. According to the developer, the plan is to slowly add more content to the alpha over the year, with new content set to debut each month.
If you make it to the end of the video update, Warhorse has prepared a special in-progress teaser trailer for the game.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a medieval RPG with a focus on realism. Set in 15th-century Bohemia – the swath of Central Europe now part of the Czech Republic – Kingdom Come aims to provide the player with gameplay, combat and music all accurate to the period. If this sounds like your bag but you missed the Kickstarter period, worry not. The developers are still accepting donations on their website to achieve even more stretch goals.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is set to be released on PC late next year with a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release sometime after.
