To say that Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a highly anticipated title is an understatement, achieving tremendous success within Kickstarter with the ambition to create an in-depth Medieval RPG experience without Magic or any other fantasy elements.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a game that would not exist without crowdfunding, with publishers refusing to fund the development of such a risky, niche gaming experience. In the eyes of many, Kingdom Come was an interesting concept but not one that was worth risking their money on.
In time these publishers were proved wrong with a strong community response from Kickstarter users, shattering Warhorse's funding goals to make the title one of the platform's biggest successes.
Four years have passed since Kingdom Come's initial Kickstarter, with a release date that is over two years after the game's original Q4 2015 release window. While this is nothing compared to the delays behind Star Citizen, Kingdom Come has been a long time coming.
Today's question is whether or not Kingdom Come's graphics and game performance can live up to the lofty expectations of today's gamers, with the title being within Crytek's CryEngine, an engine famed for producing some of PC gaming's most demanding titles. How well does Kingdom Come: Deliverance run on modern PC hardware? Let's find out.
Both AMD and Nvidia have released optimised drivers for Kingdom Come Deliverance, with AMD offering their Radeon Software Adrenalin 18.2.2 driver and Nvidia offering their Geforce 390.77 driver. Each of these drivers will deliver PC gamers an optimal gameplay experience within Kingdom Come Deliverance, with AMD's driver promising up to a 4% performance improvement.
We recommend that all PC gamers update their graphics card drivers before playing Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
