Kingdom Come: Deliverance trailer heralds upcoming pre-alpha

Kingdom Come

Kingdom Come: Deliverance claims it's a realistic RPG, but this trailer makes things look far too pretty. My knowledge of the past pegs it as a squalid, terrible place filled with toil and misery. And that's just the '90s. Here you get a chance to experience some serene environments—free of the combat and quests that will populate the game itself.

For the relevant backers—either of this year's Kickstarter, or the game's current backer page—the pre-alpha will be released on 22 October. Backers need to have pledged at least $40 to receive alpha access.

He eventually joined full-time as a news writer, before moving to the magazine to review immersive sims, RPGs and Hitman games. Now he leads PC Gamer's UK team, but still sometimes finds the time to write about his ongoing obsessions with Destiny 2, GTA Online and Apex Legends. When he's not levelling up battle passes, he's checking out the latest tactics game or dipping back into Guild Wars 2. He's largely responsible for the whole Tub Geralt thing, but still isn't sorry.
