We may not be in 2014 yet, but Warhorse Studios (made up of people who have worked on MafiaOperation Flashpoint, and other franchises) has announced that Kingdom Come: Deliverance will be released in 2015 for the PC and next-gen consoles.

Described as an open world, action-adventure, role-playing game featuring blockbuster production values, a nonlinear story and revolutionary, first-person melee combat, here’s a brief look into what you can expect from Kingdom Come: Deliverance:

Rooted within the Holy Roman Empire during the late Middle Ages, Kingdom Come: Deliverance promises a first-person seat to a harsh and brutal power struggle for the throne. As players traverse expansive, strikingly detailed locales, they’ll grapple with a range of period-accurate fighting techniques, horseback combat, open-field sieges, and large-scale battles, all while developing relationships and a reputation that will inform the greater story. Kingdom Come: Deliverance promises no magic, high fantasy or mythical overtones – it draws its inspiration instead from historically authentic characters, themes, and warfare.

Studio Creative Director Dan Vávra added:

The team’s ambition for Kingdom Come: Deliverance is growing this ever-maturing sandbox genre in a believable, real-world context and scope. To that end, we’re harnessing CryEngine 3, nonlinear narrative, varied freedom in character progression, and a consequence-laden living world in ways that have never been possible until now.

You can expect to hear more about Kingdom Come: Deliverance on January 20th, 2014.
