Kingdom Come: Deliverance 'From the Ashes' expansion launches next week [updated]

Recently, Warhorse Studios released a roadmap for some new content that will be released over the course of the next year for the medieval role-playing game Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The title is currently available for $59.99 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4.

Updated July 5, 2018: Kingdom Come: Deliverance's latest expansion is now available on the Xbox Store. From the Ashes costs $9.99 and unlocks the content in the base game without the need for another large download.

A new "Hardcore Mode" launched on June 26, 2018, and the "From the Ashes" expansion releases next week. In a new developer diary, Warhorse Studios announced that From the Ashes would be available on July 5, 2018. It's unclear how much it'll cost, but given the scope of the content, we don't expect it to be cheap.

In From the Ashes, you have an opportunity to build a new village. As a newly-appointed bailiff, you have to decide what buildings to erect, what people to bring, and how to settle disputes. Buildings are upgradable and require different materials.

Set in 1403, you play as Henry, a humble blacksmith's son, who winds up in not-so-humble circumstances. The game starts off in a fairly benign way, where you resolve village disputes, learn your father's craft, and play real dice games from the time period. The opening is quite deceptive because Henry's simple life is disrupted in a severe way and the adventure begins from there. You will eventually find yourself taking part in large-scale battles, and helping solve a political crisis that threatens all of Bohemia.
