Xbox and PC RPG 'Kingdom Come: Deliverance' gets new gameplay video detailing combat and quests

Today, Warhorse Studios released a new gameplay video of Kingdom Come: Deliverance detailing its features and mechanics. The video follows a day in the life of Henry, the game's protagonist, with an extensive look at the historically-inspired combat system. According to the developer, to survive fights in a country which is torn apart internally and invaded by foreign forces, evening the odds is important when rushing into a battle. Fighting one bandit instead of taking on a dozen is probably a realistic approach to combat. This isn't The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an upcoming medieval role-playing game (RPG) set to launch on February 13, 2018 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. Contrary to its open nature, the game is story-driven and immerses you in an epic adventure in the medieval Holy Roman Empire. You get to explore majestic castles, deep forests, thriving villages, and countless other real-life places in medieval Bohemia. The title starts off rather tragically because you have to avenge your parents' death. While that may be the main quest, there are much larger forces at play. The game features intense battles, game-changing quests, and the ability to dramatically impact the world by making certain choices.

Hopefully when Kingdom Come: Deliverance launches next month, it'll be a polished experience even on consoles. The developer added that the game will support Xbox One X when it comes out.
