Today Dec. 19, 2013 independent video game development house Warhorse Studios announced their first title "Kingdom Come: Deliverance" will be hitting next generation consoles and PC in 2015. The company also revealed the game's first teaser trailer, along with a couple of screenshots. This open world action-adventure role-playing game features "blockbuster production values, a nonlinear story and revolutionary, first-person melee combat."
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."
