It's not often we get a CryEngine graphical powerhouse come our way but Kingdom Come: Deliverance delivers in spades. This is a gorgeous open-world RPG that is the visual equal of just about any other. Be warned though, it's not exactly a game that's easy to run. Here we take a look at Kingdom Come: Deliverance with a series of benchmarks, performance and graphical analyses, and Low v Ultra comparison screens.
After a quiet start to the year of PC gaming, Warhorse Studios is delivering one of the most anticipated RPG's of 2018 with Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Built on the powerful CryEngine, it's indisputably gorgeous. As I can attest to having tried to run Kingdom Come on a GeForce GTX 970 though, getting a stable frame rate isn't easy. Fortunately, once you identify which graphics options in Kingdom Come Deliverance are the most demanding, this all becomes much easier.
As we found out for ourselves, Kingdom Come: Deliverance comes with a huge day one patch. 23GB, to be precise, which is pretty much the same size as the full game. If you’re planning on picking up a physical copy of Kingdom Come on PC, PS4 or Xbox One, suffice to say you’ve got a big wait on your hands until you can actually play the game.
We’re getting deliciously close to Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s launch now, and the hype train is gathering some serious steam. A brooding new trailer has been revealed for the medieval RPG, showcasing Kingdom Come’s stunning world design and one-of-a-kind atmosphere that could end up being very special indeed.
Ah finally, the big games are arriving. Nvidia’s just dropped its first big driver release of 2018. The GeForce 390.77 WHQL graphics card provides Game Ready support for both Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Konami’s Metal Gear Survive, among other goodies.
As Warhorse is at pains to tell us, Kingdom Come: Deliverance isn’t your average RPG. Not only does it eschew magic and dragons for brutal, realistic medieval combat, but it also brings immersive systems to just about every element of the gameplay, as outlined in a hefty new trailer.
In Kingdom Come: Deliverance, choice is everything. Entire questlines can be scuppered with a ruthless swing of a sword. The lines between good and evil can increasingly blur. And there will be several ways to go about any one task.
Having delayed the game to accommodate the new console versions, we’re at long last approaching the launch of Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Warhorse Studios open-world RPG is a much serious take on the genre than we’re perhaps used to, rooted in gritty realism and historical accuracy. It looks to be a breath of fresh air in a field dominated by dwarves and kobolds, and this bleeds through to the authentic combat system being put together for Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
Wah? Is it Gamescom already? That came around sooner than we were expecting. Warhorse Studios has got out there early with its Kingdom Come: Deliverance trailer for Gamescom 2017, tracking the events that lead to the death of protagonist Henry’s parents. He’s your run of the mill blacksmith’s son, the usual innocuous RPG type; yet after watching his parents get murdered by villainous soldiers right before his eyes, Henry joins Sir Radzig for combat training in an effort to quench his thirst for revenge. It’s all very Braveheart, including the dodgy accents.
Swords and no sorcery RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance will be out worldwide on February 13th, 2018, Warhorse Studios and Deep Silver have announced. The medieval role-player will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and the announcement has been joined by an all-new trailer showing off the 'Origin of Henry' quest. In addition to this, the official PC specs for the visually stunning Kingdom Come: Deliverance have also been revealed.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s development has been pootling along for a good number of years now, and by Warhorse’s own admission, we'd have had a PC release already if it weren’t for inking a deal with a publisher that demanded console ports. Things are heating up on the Kingdom Come front though, with an all new teaser trailer hinting at a big announcement to come on Friday, June 9th.
