Introducing armor layer system in Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Dear backers, 


We at Warhorse Studios are happy to present new insides of the development of Kingdom Come: Deliverance. In our new video we delve into the extensive RPG System, the sophisticated armor layering system and introduces the item quality and survival elements. 


RPG System

Shape your character and level your skills. Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an open world RPG and allows you to freely choose your playstyle: a diplomatic way using your speech skills, a sneaky way using your stealth skills, or a violent way with your weapon ready. You will only become better by actively using your skills or by visiting different trainers. But be careful, everything you do in Kingdom Come: Deliverance will affect your reputation and you’ll have to face the consequences.

 Armor layer system

Kingdom Come: Deliverance offers you a 16 slot armor layering system (+4 weapon slots) which allows you to fully customize your character.

  • 6 body slots (cloth, chainmail, plate, sleeves, gloves, coat/hood)
  • 4 leg slots (trousers, chainmail, armor, boots)
  • 4 head slots (coif, chainmail, helmet, necklace)
  • 2 jewelry slots (ring, spur)

(Weapon slots contain: weapon, shield, bow, arrow)

Layer different types of armor over each other to prepare for the next battle. From a soft linen shirt to massive full plate armor, every material is good against different types of attacks such as slashes, stabs, and blunt hits. Combine different materials to use their benefits and negate their weak spots.

A sophisticated physical collision system calculates the exact position of each strike. Due to the collision system, armor pieces only protect particular spots on your body, but the more hits you get the more your armor is weakened. Keeping armor clean and in good shape is crucial; dirty, bloody or destroyed armor has a direct influence on the effectiveness, your appearance and your reputation. This could result in quests becoming easier or harder, trades cheaper or more expensive, or people might greet you warmly or attack you on sight. A wisely chosen piece of armor might make the difference between survival and death.

To get even more in-depth look at the technology behind our clothing system, please take a look at Tomas Barak’s speech from last years Game Developers Conference: 

Survival and item quality 

Your weapons and armor can be destroyed, which will drastically decrease its quality and effectiveness. Bring your armor to the local smith or use a grind stone to keep your gear in good condition.

Wounds can only be treated with medicine, bandages, food and sleep. But food can spoil so choose wisely what to bring on your next quest. A lack of food or sleep will harm you and affect your overall vitality, combat strength and can eventually lead to death.

Making the swords for Kickstarter backers


Remember the day when our Kickstarter campaign started? We were full of doubts: How would the campaign end? What would gamers say about the idea to develop realistic medieval RPG? Did we offer interesting rewards? We were excited and scared both in the same time.

Today we already know that you are the best backers in the world! Thanks to you we are able to work on a game we have dreamed of for years. To show you how grateful we are, we were sharing news from the game development, we released early Technical Alpha versions and few months ago we invited you to find Reeky in the Beta access. Now it is time to start the work on delivering the physical rewards :-)

We are proud to announce that the production of the swords for Kickstarter backers started! The hand-made swords are being produced by our friends from Wulflund Pagan Shop and Arma Epona smithy located in the beautiful landscape of Central Bohemia. Let’s visit the forge to see for yourself!

To get a sword of similar quality please visit our website to get the Limited edition now! 

If you want to taste a real sword fighting while waiting for the package with the rewards, download the Beta version of Kingdom Come: Deliverance and jump into the fight!

Thank you once again for supporting us!

PS: Please update your profile on Kingdom Come page with your address, phone number and/or photos for in-game picture, so we can send you the rewards, when the right time comes. Thank you!
