For those who don’t know, Kingdom Come Deliverance is a 2018 ARPG (action role-playing game). It was developed by Warhorse Studios and is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. This game received good reviews and won multiple Game of The Year awards. The uniqueness of the game is in the non-uniqueness of the protagonist, unlike other RPG games, the protagonist is a standard soldier. This is an open-world game and is played from a first-person perspective and feels a lot like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, minus the mystical stuff.
As for the plot of the game, Kingdom Come Deliverance takes place in the medieval kingdom of Bohemia. On orders by the Hungarian king Sigismund, the village of the protagonist, Henry, was attacked. In this attack, Henry’s family, and most of the people were killed and Henry was one of the few survivors. In order to get revenge, he joins a resistance movement against the empire and tries to restore Sigismund's half-brother, Wenceslaus IV, who is also the rightful heir of Bohemia, to the throne.
Overall, Kingdom Come Deliverance is a very fun game and is definitely worth a shot for anyone who likes playing ARPG games. Since you can try it for free, there is not much to complain about either. Go to the Steam page and get it
