Kingdom Come: Deliverance is launching tomorrow and Deep Silver has given us one last trailer. This trailer features a little more story and cinematic footage than we have seen before, including what might be one of the backstories you can choose. This is to be sworn in as a St. Benedict monk, and due to the historical accuracy the developers claim to this game, that means plenty of fun times ahead for you.
Depending on how wealthy the monastery you are staying at is, you will likely be violating just about every rule Saint Benedict came up with, including and not limited to the accumulation of personal wealth, eating meat, and plenty of sex out of wedlock. That said, you can also choose to actually follow Benedict’s rules and stand against the corruption of monasteries at the time.
Needless to say, the historical accuracy of Kingdom Come: Deliverance is thrilling for anyone regardless of how much knowledge you have of the Middle Ages. For history buffs, it will be a bit like reading the book before watching the movie, you will discover all kinds of little tidbits and grand events that reference actual history.
Being able to play in Bohemia, while it was probably the largest section of the Holy Roman Empire, is going to be pure fun. There is so much going on for all walks of life, whether you are a peasant building a beautiful church, a monk running a lucrative business in sex and food, or a knight looking for a fight.
Deep Silver has mentioned that significant historical figures can be found within the game and I dearly hope Chaucer is one of them. Though to be perfectly accurate, Chaucer traveled mostly in Central Europe, rather than Eastern Europe where Bohemia lies. Chaucer is certainly a favorite among Medieval scholars and the ability to interact with him inside a game would be somewhere between hilarious and awe-inspiring.
Who do you hope to see in this game? Who will you choose to be? Let us know in the comments below!
Kingdom Come: Deliverance comes out tomorrow on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
