THQ Nordic’s parent company apologises for disastrous 8chan AMA

If you believe (incorrectly) that there's no such thing as bad publicity, you may be impressed that people are still talking about publisher THQ Nordic GmbH. Their 'Ask Me Anything' Q&A session on 8chan - an infamous image-board permanently delisted from Google for hosting suspected child porn - got people chattering. Unfortunately it's the kind of chatter that has brought parent company THQ Nordic AB…

THQ Nordic held a Q&A with 8chan, a website de-listed from Google for hosting suspected child porn

"We're doing an 8chan AMA and we have no idea why," announced THQ Nordic on their Twitter account earlier this evening. If you're not aware, 8chan is an imageboard website which has been de-listed from Google search results for hosting "suspected child abuse content," and which is associated with Swatting and Gamergate. THQ Nordic's marketing director has since apologised and claimed ignorance, but both are…

THQ Nordic buys Kingdom Come: Deliverance developer

Nom Nom Nom Nom. Nom Nom. Nom. That was my impression of THQ Nordic acquiring various IPs as part of it's ongoing, unstoppable quest to presumably create some sort of bizarre Smash Bros knockoff where you can fight Sergeant Cortez from TimeSplitters as the goat from Goat Simulator. Warhorse, the team behind last year's Kingdom Come: Deliverance, is the latest studio to say hello to…

The Steam Awards show was short and to the point

While last year's Steam Awards were just a poll on the store, Valve are stepping up their game this year. Starting in a few minutes (at the time of writing) is the Steam Awards 2018 show, broadcasting live on the company's own Steam TV site. While I doubt there'll be anything as surprising as Epic's coup at the Game Awards before the holidays, there's still…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s hardcore mode brings somnambulistic haemophiliacs

If you fancy playing an RPG as a sleepwalker who can find themself in different places when they wake up, then must find their way navigating by the sun before they starve to death, Kingdom Come: Deliverance now has you covered. Developers Warhorse Studios today patched in a 'Hardcore Mode' making the medieval RPG more like a survival game, hiding UI elements like the health…

Kingdom Come Deliverance mod adds unlimited saving

Kingdom Come: Deliverance deliberately doesn't allow you to save the game whenever you feel like it, insisting that you either buy or brew a bottle of something called Saviour Schnapps first. It's a heady beverage that saves your game even as it gets you drunk, and by the sounds of things it doesn't seem too easy a beverage to come by. While the game does…

Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s latest video breaks down the combat system

Kingdom Come: Deliverance, the historical RPG set in the 14th century, will feature rather a lot of brawling with grunting, armoured men, so Warhorse Studios has put together a detailed video on how the game’s combat system works. The studio is going for realism, basing the fighting techniques on medieval martial arts, so it looks a bit more involved than simply swinging your sword and…

Kingdom Come: Deliverance rides out in February 2018

Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site], the swish-lookin' real-world medieval RPG from Warhose Studios, will arrive on February 13th, 2018. It's the tale of a lowly blacksmith's son in 14th century Bohemia (the Czech Republic, for younguns) who gets caught up in a civil war after his village is massacred. Here, a new trailer celebrating today's announcement gives a look at how that story kicks off:

Kingdom Come: Deliverance gets a new trailer

Ever since I read Edwin's early thoughts on medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site], in which he slung turds at a man who was singing a song he didn't like, I've been intrigued. Warhorse Studios and Deep Silver have now put up a new trailer featuring a lot of good-looking environments and townsfolk going about their daily routines (as well as teasing a bit…

Brian Blessed charges into Kingdom Come: Deliverance

I would say "Sound the Brian Blessed warning alarm!" but goodness me, the man is his own warning alarm. Surely you'll hear him long before you meet him in Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site]. Yup, Brian Blessed (aka Blesso, the Blesser, Bless Up, the Blessinator, and BeeBee) has lent his voice and face to a character in the open-world medieval RPG. In a new dev…

Come Get Yer Armour In Kingdom Come: Deliverance

This is a grown man being kicked in the chest while wearing a full suit of armour. The folks behind Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site], the medieval RPG that is replacing magic, goblins and fantasy with realistic combat and rotting food, have released a development diary showing off the armour system while playing dress-up. It's extensive. While most games of its ilk would be satisfied…

Kingdom Come: Deliverance Delayed Till Next Year

Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site], you may recall, is Warhorse Studios' heartily-crowdfunded medieval RPG that drops fantasy in favour of realism. It's a novel idea - stripping the genre of orcs, magic and dragons; instead focusing on meticulous combat, stat-building and consequence-bearing dialogue - and its CryEngine-powered getup has so far impressed in both its astute sword fighting sequences and moments of reflection. Originally scheduled…

The Complex Combat Of Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site] is a crowd-funding success story about hitting knights with swords in first person. It's aiming to be a realistic RPG, where levelling up and getting loot will help you out, but there will be no magic, no goblins and your skill with a sword will determine your fate more than your stat line. That combat has been detailed in a…

Kingdom Come’s Storm Of Cryengine-Powered Swords

This looks like people actually fighting. Like, properly clobbering each other with swords and boots and such. Whatever else successfully Kickstarted (and its own subsequent campaign, which combined has brough in well over $2m) medial RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site] ends up doing well or poorly, it's gone to town on solid-looking, crunchy animation.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s Rural Idyll

Kingdom Come: Deliverance makes medieval life look so pleasant in its latest trailer. Developers Warhorse have built something beautiful in CryEngine, and are showing off its fields, ponds, meadows, sheep, villages, and taverns in little slices of life. How splendid. They don't show any of the warfare the open-world not-fantasy RPG's actually built around, though. Still, just imagine men with swords hitting each other in…

Space Team: Kingdom Come And Star Citizen Collaborating

But not on a version of the delightful mobile game Space Team. Sometimes my headlines get away from me, take on lives of their own, and begin pulling nefarious pranks on innocent passersby. I apologize. I blame the public schooling system. But anyway, the two members of Kickstarter's Might As Well Be Triple-A contingent, Star Citizen and Kingdom Come: Deliverance, are joining forces to sensually…

Thought Bubbles: Inside Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s AI

"While we don't have dragons, we have chickens," has just become my favourite developer quote of all time. For a brief moment I was imagining a world-dominating chicken that people would live in terror of. The giant beak, the angry peck, the awkward, flappy attempt at flight... terrifying. But context is important, and in this case that quote is about Kingdom Come: Deliverance, a game…

The Pointy End Of Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s Combat

Kingdom Come's crowd-funding effort is still sparking away on the grind-stone of Kickstarter, honing the edge that it'll need to slice through the metal, meat, and bone of... wait, I've accidentally moved from a metaphor into an actual description. It's because I just watched a video detailing the medieval RPG's sword-fighting system, and it looks nicely balanced. They've taken three basic attacks to six zones…

Gear And Clothing: Kingdom Come – Deliverance

Kingdom Come: Deliverance contains the opposite of 'infinite dragons', which is to say that it contains 'no dragons'. Not one. Instead, the Kickstarter project from the super-group made up of Mafia and ARMA developers contains lots and lots of people, all fighting, living and exploring in a believable fashion. Nathan has shared his impressions of an early demo and the latest development video shows that…
