Kingdom Come: Deliverance II Announced – Coming 2024

When Kingdom Come: Deliverance launched in February 2018, my PC could just handle the graphics in this huge and story-rich open-world RPG that immerses you in an epic adventure in the Holy Roman Empire. I felt the combat was a little clunky at the time, but the story was so epic and the adventures so grand that it was hard to put down. Warhorse Studios has recently announced Kingdom Come: Deliverance II, a true sequel to its predecessor but has been developed and written in such a way that it is perfect for newcomers and longtime fans alike.

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 of Skalitz, 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. Your actions shape Henry’s destiny and how the world will react to him. Customise freely his appearance, skills and equipment while taking a moral stance on the events around you. Travel round the land engaging in unique activities, such as blacksmithing and archery, to truly immerse yourself in this vibrant region of Europe that will remember your actions, forever.

On 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) with the majestic Trosky Castle and then visit an urban environment of 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. I was pleased to hear that the combat system of Kingdom Come: Deliverance II has been revamped to make it more accessible while staying true to its nature – a depiction of real medieval martial arts – from elegant swordplay to deadly ranged attacks, such as the newly added crossbows or early gunpowder weapons.

Now is as good as time as any to jump back into the original as we prepare for the sequel. I am super keen for Kingdom Come: Deliverance II which will release on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S later this year.
