Kingdom Come Deliverance 2 brings back everything you love and adds weapons for good measure


    Almost six years later, the wait is finally over: Czech developer Warhorse Studios is back with its next game, Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2. Or to put it another way: Henry has come to see you again (and his funny friend Hans for good measure).

    The first title did quite well, but still managed to fly under the radar of some (if you fall into this camp, rectify the situation immediately). Need a couple of buzzwords to crack your crowbars? Historical Skyrim. It’s much more than that, no doubt, but that’s actually the crux of the matter.

    Anyway, Warhorse says they’re making KCD2 because they had to cut a lot of things down for the first game. It was so clever that I honestly hadn’t noticed it, but now that they mention it, the story was smaller in scope than we often see in RPGs. That’s really refreshing in a way, but it’ll be cool to see what they can do with a bigger budget, a bigger team (it’s now 250 people), and a bigger vision this time (that’s not just talk: the two new maps will prove double the size of what we saw before). Its creator Daniel Vavra says that now we will see the “troubles of kings”, which I find quite exciting. Let’s do this.

    The main addition to the game that we were given up front is the first firearms (Firearms for the layman), which are as visually and sonically satisfying as could be expected.

    Most of what’s been shown so far is a lot of returning features (alchemy, dice, realistic combat, and the trademark witty humor), but honestly, they nailed it with the first game as well as anyone could have, so more of the same (but bigger) should only be interpreted positively. Graphically, it definitely looks like a step towards an already gorgeous game too, so that certainly doesn’t hurt. Additionally, the biggest complaint (the combat) has been addressed. We don’t have details yet (and based on the trailer, it looks pretty much the same), but I’m sure the combat will be more accessible this time, while maintaining its realism.

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2 will be released later this year for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. Naturally, we will be here for it.
