Warhorse Studios has confirmed that Kingdom Come: Deliverance, an upcoming Kickstarter-funded open-world RPG, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
"We originally announced our game for PC and next gen console," said the company. "While we never doubted our technical ability to do it, we were not sure about the actual publishing and distribution. In the last console generation, it just wasn’t possible to have a game on console without an official publisher.
"In this generation it’s going to be different though. We had lot of discussion with both Microsoft and Sony in the past weeks and we are happy to announce that the game concept of Kingdom Come: Deliverance was approved by both Sony and Microsoft for the next gen platform (PS4 and Xbox One).
"Both companies are very eager to work with independent developers now and were really helpful in speeding up the whole process. We were provided with devkits and will get cracking on the console version right away."
While Warhorse has the chance to self-publish Kingdom Come for digital platforms, it noted it may have to find a publishing partner to secure a physical release.
Kingdom Come casts players as an unfortunate blacksmith, who finds himself down and out after the outbreak of war. Following on the dying wishes of his father, the young man finds himself entangled in a plot involving a kidnapped king and to put a stop to the bloody conflict.
Players will have a variety of choices on their hands, and can opt to play as a battle-ready knight, a rogue that lurks in the shadows for his prey, or persuade people to join the cause as the charming bard.
