Bohemian rhapsody.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is now available for pre-order, DRM-free on GOG.com. Get it now to receive the Treasure Map DLC as a pre-order bonus.
Your sword is vengeance. Your sword is destiny. Your sword is all you have left.
The civil war that ravages medieval Bohemia took everything from you and now a life in the service of a local lord seems the only available path. But only momentarily, because this dynamic open world is packed with role-playing opportunities and challenges, opening up into a gut-wrenching narrative involving historical characters of the era.

NOTE: The DRM-free version of the game will be released on GOG.com on February 27, due to the publisher's decision.
Hmm..this looks realy good but i am unsure if i should buy the PC or the Xbox-version.

Most the time i play 1P-Games at the console but i fear about the rpg-parts--Inventorymanagment, SC-Develepoment,...

mystral: I actually disagree with you that fantasy settings like the Elder Scrolls or Dungeon&Dragons are less historically accurate than ones that try to be realistic.
I agree that fantasy settings could be highly accurate historical settings too.
Ars Magica anyone?

Fact is that Elder Scrolls and D&D are not one of those settings.

mystral: I actually disagree with you that fantasy settings like the Elder Scrolls or Dungeon&Dragons are less historically accurate than ones that try to be realistic.

The simple fact of the matter is that settings that are pure fantasy have nothing to do with our history and therefore whether they bear any resemblance whatsoever to an historical time period in our world is entirely irrelevant. It's fiction, plain and simple.

On the other hand, a game (or book, or movie, or whatever) who does claim to at least partly represent part of our history (whether they're alternate history, historical fiction or an actual documentary) can be judged on its accuracy. Which is probably one of the reasons game developers don't use that kind of setting more often, since proper research takes time (and therefore money).
avatar
RoseLegion: That's one perspective, and you are entitled to it of course, but you are right we very much disagree on this point.
Fine, let's just agree to disagree on that one.

avatar
mystral: And while I agree that there are time periods where historians are reduced to little more than conjecture when it comes to historical facts or how the people of said times lived, I don't think early 15th century is really one of those times, at least in Europe. There were plenty of people who kept records at that point, from monks to Italian bankers to actual historians, and Bohemia was an important enough country at the time that we should be able to have a good idea how people lived there.
avatar
RoseLegion: There certainly are times where more and less records were created (and survived) but even in the times where there are many making certain that you've followed a thread which has solid backing and that such backing isn't distorted by contemporary bias (either theirs or ours) or outright misrepresentation (revisionist history has been around at least as long as Egyptian Pharaohs), is another thing again.
My dear friend, who is currently finishing his post graduate studies in history, has very firmly educated me during our semi-frequent discussions of history and culture, that making statements which are either too unequivocal or too confident is very likely to mean that you are making statements about history which are in some manner unreliable.
I don't claim to be an expert in the field by any means (I dabble here and there but am no professional) but when someone I trust who is a practitioner of the field tells me something I do tend to take them at their word.

That aside a lot of this seems to revolve once more around the our simple difference in perspective about the accuracy of a setting. To me a setting which is more like the historical context is more historically accurate than a pure fantasy setting which makes no effort to contain historical representation, but again from my perspective this is all on a spectrum there aren't really any binary answers to be found here (well, okay, something set in the future isn't historical... unless it's A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.... then maybe ;) ).
While I agree that a historian should be cautious about historical sources, should strive not to let any kind of bias taint his interpretation of said sources and should be ready to admit when there just isn't enough material to know with any kind of accuracy what happened, he also shouldn't fall into the opposite extreme of doubting everything and claiming historical accuracy is impossible to achieve.

The fact is that if you have several contemporary sources which say the same thing, there's no reason to assume they're all lying unless you have some other documents that lead you to suspect they are.
To go back to the original point, the reason we know for a fact that plate armor was extremely expensive and rare in the early 15th century is that we still have plenty of records that show it was, from armorers' bills, to letters between noblemen, to bankers' records about loans they gave out.

Fair point. Also to be clear (because I think I wasn't before) I'm not at all trying to contend that plate was commonplace or cheap, my comments were more general in nature but your point is well taken in either event.

jalister: How did they keep their word? If you mean by making a DRM free version of the game, at this time they said Kickstarter backers can't have a GOG version.
avatar
RadonGOG: Hmm? Your second sentence is exactly what they promised: There will be one, but not for backers. (a strange decision though, which was the reason why I didn´t back it)
The problem I have is Warhorse knew what a lot of backers wanted, and even addressed it in the FAQ on Kickstarter. They could do it, but just aren't willing to put in a little effort to please the people that backed Warhorse when they needed it. My experience with other campaigns that had a DRM and DRM free version either gave backers a choice of one or the other, or gave backers both versions, or in the worst case scenario we simply had to ask for the DRM free version. In that third case the answers were like "Of course, enjoy". Plus the answer of can't isn't true because in realty they won't. The entry from the FAQ is below.


Can I get a DRM-free version of the game?

We get many questions about DRM and whether our game is going to be DRM free. Frankly, we have to admit we are not sure at this moment. We are planning to use Steam on open platforms, so the game will be using Steam default copy protection mechanics. Other options including GOG.com are being considered but can't be confirmed as of yet.

paladin181: Will this game be worth $60US? It seems pricey for a Kickstarter game. The trailers look great but preorder exclusives piss me off. Tentatively watching this one.

Paul_cz: This game is an open world RPG developed by team of over 100 people for 6 years, offering over 100 hours of playtime, with full voice acting and orchestral soundtrack, and you are surprised it costs normal price of new game?

The kickstarter money was just a fraction of overall budget.
Maybe it's normal, but $60 is a lot to me.
Are there any reviews worth noting up yet?

althrian: Are there any reviews worth noting up yet?
Depends on what you mean by 'worth noting'. I guess there are some 'professional' reviews from various sources, but since the game's not yet released anywhere, there are no user reviews.

Just out of curiosity do you know the final budget?
The Kickstarted clocks in at £1,106,371 pledged, how small a fraction of their budget was that?

I meant reviews that you or others find to be important or worth sharing :)

GOG.com: ~Snip~
NOTE: The DRM-free version of the game will be released on GOG.com on February 27, due to the publisher's decision.
Ya know, if every publisher did this in lieu of denuvo, then I'm all for getting the game much later! (Within reason!) This should be the best alternative to denuvo! Please GOG, help make this a thing!

INSTA-BOUGHT for this very reason!

Although I'm a little bit pissed to not receive a non-Steam key as a Kickstarter supporter, I'm pretty happy to see the game released on GOG within a reasonable timeframe. This is huge for Warhorse and even bigger for GOG. The game looked super promising all along and I could very well imagine for KC:D to be a serious "RPG of the year" candidate. Really looking forward to the first reviews by the end of the week!

These figures aren't public. But Warhorse once mentioned that their initial tech-demo cost almost a million to make. And that was 4 years ago, with a minimal amount of systems in place.

The game is absolutely worth the full retail price, from what I've seen.
