The team at Warhorse Studios has decades of experience in AAA game development, working on notable franchises such as "Mafia," "Crysis," "ArmA," and "Operation Flashpoint."

According to a prepared statement we received from the studio's creative director Dan Vávra:

The team’s ambition for Kingdom Come: Deliverance is growing this ever-maturing sandbox genre in a believable, real-world context and scope. To that end, we’re harnessing CryENGINE 3, nonlinear narrative, varied freedom in character progression, and a consequence-laden living world in ways that have never been possible until now.

"Kingdom Come: Deliverance" takes place in the Holy Roman Empire during the late Middle Ages and is a "first-person seat to a harsh and brutal power struggle for the throne." Several notable features of the game include period-accurate fighting techniques, horseback combat, open-field sieges, and large-scale battles. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the game is that there's "no magic, high fantasy or mythical overtones - it draws its inspiration instead from historically authentic characters, themes, and warfare."
