New title announced by the relatively new Czech company Warhorse Studios, featuring several of the original Mafia: City of Lost Heaven developers.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance has been advertised by its creators as a medieval open world RPG with none of the fantasy elements found in most other games of the genre. It should be set in the Holy Roman Empire in the year 1403. The devs promise authentic historical personae and actual events having taken place around the early beginnings of the early-fifteenth century.

The game is set to be published in 2015 and will be built around the CryEngine 3.

Indeed, I've been waiting for ages for another decent medieval RPG with zero magic to come out. Wizardry has always kind of been an immersion breaker for me, at least in games. And as the RPS article states: if the people behind Mafia were good at one thing, it was at creating an intense, immersive atmosphere that swallowed you whole.

This can be great, and if it works it could open the door for more realistic historical RPGs wich is something I have always wanted.

From what little we saw of gameplay, combat seems to involve a lot of quick time events.

Does anyone else think something is off at the end where he hits the other guy in the head? Could just be me not understanding swords & physics.

Neat, missed the gif at the end there. Cry engine for the win this upcoming generation of games it appears. Glad to see another 'realistic' based medieval game, they are rare.

Maybe they'll get the melee combat right unlike a considerable number of other 'realistic' medieval games.

Nope chainmail is supposed to stop slashes. It's accurate.
I'd have imagined the sword would have slid onto the shoulder though, instead of getting pushed back.

I think it registered as a hit, it just didn't kill the guy. While not realistic, I'm assuming they are going by the standard game-y "health" that is present. Unless that is of course merely really early gameplay, and subject to change.

No, they haven't sadly.

EDIT: I'm quite surprised by the fact that so many people on Kotaku seem adverse to the idea of playing a "realistic" medieval open world RPG. The game not being fantastical seems to be the very thing turning them off. Never really considered the idea that the absence of fantasy elements could push people away from a game.
