A little less than 48 hours after launching their Kickstarter for open world medieval times RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Warhorse Studios has reached their funding goal. This means 2015 will be the year realistically rendered trebuchets take gaming by storm. Or rather, by siege.
“This is a big and expensive game,” says Game Director and Lead Designer Dan Vávra Since. “Game publishers are not throwing money at us, we’ve made a deal with our investor: if we raise the relatively reasonable sum of US$500k [on Kickstarter], it is proof for him that the game has potential, and he would continue to finance us.”
Needless to say, Mr. Moneybags will be continuing to finance the “dungeons and no dragons” sandbox stunner, which is planned to release on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Mac and Linux sometime late next year. In the meantime, the Kickstarter campaign has almost a month on the clock. Warhorse plans to use any extra cash collected to improve the experience and to make additional content.
So, fingers crossed for a side quest where you play as Genghis Khan, gathering plague-riddled corpses to catapult at your enemies.
