  • Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2 Announced, Releases in 2024

    Featuring a game world that is twice the size of the original.

    Warhorse Studios announced Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2 today as part of a livestreamed presentation. This is a direct sequel to their action-RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance and continues the story set in motion by that first game.

    Players will again get to explore 15th century Bohemia in Central Europe. Once again, you will play as Henry, the son of a blacksmith that got caught up in a story of "vengeance, betrayal, and self-discovery." In the sequel, Henry finds himself traversing the countryside in a land in the midst of a civil war.

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2 will play out across two maps, doubling the size of the original game's game world. Some notable areas include the Bohemian Paradise countryside, to Trosky Castle, and some more urban environments like the silver mining town of Kuttenberg.

    The combat system for Deliverance 2 has been overhauled a bit. Warhorse says that the combat is now more accessible to new players "while staying true to its nature as a depiction of real medieval martial arts." Combat still mainly focuses on swordplay but there are now also more ranged options, such as the new crossbow and very early gunpowder weapons.

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2 is expected to be released later in 2024 for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.

    As I disclosed with the review for Kingdom Come: Deliverance, so will I do now: Warhorse co-founder Daniel Vavra was a vocal supporter of the harassment group known as GamerGate and has shared support for far-right personalities. However, Warhorse is not just Daniel Vavra but is a team made up of over 200 developers of different beliefs and backgrounds. In no way do I support Vavra's beliefs or opinions, but I am also not going to tell you how you should feel about Warhorse Studios, Vavra's involvement, or the Kingdom Come games.

    About Kingdome Come: Deliverance II:

    Diving back into the heart-pounding world of 15th Century Bohemia (Central Europe), Kingdom Come: Deliverance II picks up where its predecessor left off, thrusting players into the shoes of Henry, the steadfast son of a blacksmith embroiled in a tumultuous tale of vengeance, betrayal, and self-discovery.

    In this gripping sequel, players will traverse a meticulously crafted medieval landscape, from the humble confines of a blacksmith's forge to the grandeur of royal courts, all while navigating the treacherous currents of a kingdom torn apart by civil war.

    Across two new maps - double the size of the previous game - players can explore the beautiful and diverse Bohemian Paradise (a real-world location you can still visit in the Czech Republic) from the majestic Trosky Castle to more urban environments such as the silver mining town of Kuttenberg (a Unesco World Heritage site).

    With over five hours of immersive cutscenes narrating Henry's journey, players will find themselves captivated by the unfolding drama at every turn.

    The combat system of Kingdom Come: Deliverance II has been revamped to make it more accessible while staying true to its nature as a depiction of real medieval martial arts. From elegant swordplay to deadly ranged attacks, such as the newly added crossbows or early gunpowder weapons, players will be able to fight like a true medieval knight.

    The game is also a true to the core RPG experience, where you can take multiple approaches to quests, evolve Henry in any way you see fit, and get lost in a responsive and lively world.

    Join Henry on his quest for redemption and revenge in 1403 Bohemia later this year and remember: "Audentes fortuna iuvat."​

      Yep despite that guy, Kingdom Come Deliverance was excellent and still feels unique today. Looking forward to the new one.

      I imagine he'll be having some heated discussions regarding content in the sequel.
