In a day and age where indie developers are more likely to hit it out of the park - thanks to successes like Rocket League, Minecraft, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds - it shouldn't be surprising that Kingdom Come: Deliverance has followed this path as well. Launched earlier this month - after a successful Kickstarter campaign - the game is set in medieval Bohemia, and follows Henry, a lowly son of a blacksmith. After surviving the historical event of 1403, where King Sigismund of Hungaria ordered a raid on mining town Skalitz; he joins the resistance against said Hungarian forces.
Announced by Rick Lagnese, U.S. community manager at Warhorse Studios, the game officially surpassed the one million sales milestone. This is particularly impressive since Kingdom Come: Deliverance has managed to be the second best-selling title on Steam globally since its launch.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance launched on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on February 13. Although the game has received critical acclaim, Digital Foundry found that performance - especially on console - has been less than satisfactory. The developer has since vowed to release patches to fix some of the concerns, with two of them in the works to remedy a myriad of issues.
