Introducing armor layer system in Kingdom Come: Deliverance
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.
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: http://www.gdcvault.com/play/1022822/Adaptive-Clothing-System-in-Kingdom
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.
