The video game hits the tabletop, as the medieval Bohemian world of Kingdom Come: Deliverance is getting an app-enhanced board game.
Medieval times, dinner and… board game
You might not immediately think of Kingdom Come: Deliverance as a smash hit, but yeah it kind of was. The game, which places players in the heart of Bohemia in the 15th century, featured an open-world, with RPG gameplay. It was a hit with both critics and players, accumulating some 5 million units sold.
Now a physical translation of that experience will be coming to tabletops, with the new Kingdom Come: Deliverance – The Board Game. Well, it might be, but we’ll get to that. First, take a look at the game in action.
Taking Kingdom Come: Deliverance from the realm of the digital to a real-life top-down experience – Warhorse Studios partnered up with the Czech board game powerhouse Boardcubator to translate the critically acclaimed historical open-world RPG into the real world of dice, tokens, and tactical tabletop strategy. While Kingdom Come: Deliverance – The Board Game shares a few locations and characters in common with the video game, the board game itself tells its own self-contained story and is to be embraced as a coinciding epic adventure that shares the same universe.
A newly-released trailer sets the mood for the same immersive experience over 5 million Kingdom Come: Deliverance fans enjoyed in the video game. Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s living and breathing world, impactful decisions, and huge focus on storytelling and immersion are present to be explored. Put down your controller and pick up your dice for this thrilling tabletop experience.Prime Matter press release
A game, if you help make it
Now, as hinted at above, there’s no guarantee that Kingdom Come: Deliverance – The Board Game will actually get made. That’s because, instead of going a more traditional route, Prime Matter, Warhorse Studios, and board game developer Boardcubator are heading to Gamefound with it.
If you’re not familiar, Gamefound is a kind of Indiegogo or Kickstarter, but for tabletop stuff. On it you’ll find all kinds of board and RPG games, including Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
As of this writing, the game has already crushed its goal, and is well into working on stretch goals. With 17 days left in the campaign, there’s still plenty of time to back, but if you want to see the rest of those goals hit, it’s probably best to dive in as early as you can.
The game is scheduled to deliver in December of 2024,and you can check it out here.
