Kingdom Come Deliverance - What To Expect
Kingdome Come Deliverance is a sandbox game. If you don’t know what a sandbox game is, simply it’s an open world free roaming game. You can interact with and explore the entire world where your reputation matters. Like in GTA V, Skyrim and Red Dead Redemption. In Kingdom Come Deliverance sandbox gaming is taken to the next level. It’s based on a true story took placed in 1403, in the Kingdom of Bohemia (now Czech Republic). It’s the story between weak-willed king Wenceslaus IV and his half-brother King Sigismund. Where you are just only a son of a blacksmith.
The true-level sandbox gaming plus massive open world. You can interact with most of the elements in the massive open world. Fully AI driven NPCs (Non Player Characters) and AI animals. Open world is so big because developers have designed it with true distances. So you can’t travel between a dungeon and a village in 3 hops. That’s what I called realistic level designing. There are villages, castles, forests and everything you can expect from medieval time. There are real world towns and settlements like Stříbrná Skalice, Světlá nad Sázavou, Talmberk Castle, and Samopše.
A better reputation system. Not that shi**y karma system in Fallout 3. That means if you did a crime without getting caught, it doesn’t affect your reputation. Yeah, boo Fallout 3! However the reputation system is much more life-like. If you are a stranger to the town and suddenly everything goes missing and people get murdered after your arrival, people going to suspect you. Missing one apple and a loaf of bread not going to increase people’s attention. But if you stole people’s jewelries or a full crate of apples, people will be in more alert. If someone got murdered, they will carry weapons. If someone saw you doing a crime, you can neutralize the target before he or she alert the guards. That won’t affect your reputation. There’s two reputation systems. You can have two characteristics in two villages. You have reputation systems for each village, settlement or town. Those reputation systems affect your base reputation according their area. In other words your reputation in the current village you live affects neighboring villages. If you burn down an entire village and travel to the neighboring village they will suspect you. It’s actually fantastic.
There’s a jail system. You can simulate the jail time faster or you can bribe guards to escape. Remember dialogues happens in a tree/ branch system. Your every replies has its own consequences. Every decision you make affects the entire game. If you start a quest with your allies and later you decided to go somewhere else, your allies won’t wait for you. They will complete the quest or die with or without you. You need to eat and sleep to stay healthy. Game actually advances while you sleep. So don’t miss a battle while sleeping. The AI system is so good. Even your horse has its own AI system.
The game is going to be released in less than 3 weeks. It’s available on steam to preorder. I think it’s really a good game. I promise this game is going to be your best medieval single player experience. There’s tons of gameplay videos available on YouTube. Why I love this game really is you are not a highly honored knight or a person with bad-ass magic abilities or a very important character to the story line. You are just a son of a blacksmith. And of cause the stunning graphics.
