Kingdom Come: Deliverance (KCD) is a story-driven open-world RPG that is being told in the Holy Roman Empire, so that is quite the setting for an incredibly rich and elaborate game. In short, KCD is an ambitious project that has known quite some tribulations in its production process, but on February 13 2018 it is finally being released on PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One! As the main character of the game, which can be controlled by gamers, you are seeking revenge for the death of your parents, and that is why you fight against troops that have been invading your territories. Finish your missions, and make choices that influence the gameplay of KCD. Explore humongous castles, but also vast forests, lively villages, but also other hyper-realistic environments in Medieval Bohemia (area in the Czech Republic).
Bohemia lies in the heart of Europe, and always had a rich culture, but this area is also known because of its silver mines and huge castles, but in history this area has had a less colourful run, because after the death of Emperor Charles IV the area changed from a great area to be into a war zone. Next to this, the area was washed over by corruption and leaders that quarrelled. One of the sons of Charles IV, Wenceslas, inherited the crown, but Wenceslas is nothing like his father, he is the total opposite. Wenceslas’ half-brother is the king of Hungary, and he sees Wenceslas’ inabilities. This is reason for Wenceslas to be abducted by his half-brother, and because of this Bohemia can be plundered and ravaged.
