We will introduce a sword combat in the next Kingdom Come: Deliverance Tech Alpha update in June

Posted by Warhorse Studios (Creator)
We have been silent for a while, because we are working hard on the next Technology Alpha update, which will be presented at E3 in June. What are the main new features you can look forward to?

  • Combat: 1-on-1 combat with Long sword, featuring parrying, ripostes and combos
  • New location: introducing a new village and surrounding countryside
  • Travel: horse riding is now available
  • Quests: new quests featuring alchemy, lock picking or grave digging
  • Localization: in addition to English voice-overs you can now choose German or French subtitles

If you backed for Baron tier or higher, please register on our website to get the Steam code to download the Tech Alpha. If you need help, please follow the instructions on our website or email us. New update will be available in the second half of June.

You can take a look at the sword combat in this behind the scenes video from Daniel Vávra, but please remember it is still a work in progress from a basic testing build. The combat in game looks already much better :-)


We will also introduce the new location Merhojed village, which was presented on the new screenshots, released on our website:

To make the waiting little bit more bearable, we launched the eagerly awaited merchandise section on our website. Now you can play the Tech Alpha in nice Kingdom Come: Deliverance T-shirt or Warhorse Baseball Cap

Please remember we are not producers of the stuff, so we can't help you with the sizes, distribution or postage, on the other hand we welcome your feedback to design, quality or new product ideas on our Facebook or forum

For European backers we have one more surprise - exclusive Warhorse beer pack by Přátelský pivovar Malešov! The collector's set contains four different beer tastes - light Lager, very strong Lager, Stout Imperial and India Pale Ale. Each bottle is labeled with original artworks, created by our lead concept artist Miky Podprocký and Daniel Vávra. 

Unfortunately the delivery is limited to selected countries only, but hopefully our friends from will be able to widen the options soon.

      The screenshots looks awesome.

      Just hope you guys won't have to "downgrade" them towards game release Witcher 3 style.

      Well, they are shipping to Germany. But ~20€ (with shipping) for 4 0.33l bottles is way over my budged.

      I tried to install the Alpha but Steam complains that my platform is invalid. What am I doing wrong?

      Also, I for one strongly appreciate your pledge, support and thereby advocacy of Umbra!

      It's latest on my top five list of coming titles to the Master Race platform.

      But... but... What about beer lovers from Quebec? Would have been interesting to open one of those when the game is completed! Oh well, keep on the good work.
