I am so ready for historical RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance. An open-world game set in the turbulent middle ages, with billhooks and guisarmes rather than magical wands and +1 longswords? Sign me up.

If you can't wait until the game's projected 2015 release to start hacking peasants apart with their own farming implements, you can back the game to get access to an Alpha version, which Warhorse Studios has revealed is coming in "September/October".

We haven't seen much of Kingdom Come over the past few months or so, despite the Gamescom and E3 press roundabout. Still the developers seem pretty confident that the game remains on course for next year, with a beta in the third quarter of 2015 and a full release in the fourth.

Kingdom Come
casts the player as a simple blacksmith who gets dragged into a vicious struggle for the crown in late middle ages Bohemia. You can play pretty much how you want, either grabbing a sword and charging into large-scale battles to hack away at people in first-person, or sneaking around shooting people with arrows and generally being a great big medieval sod. You can back the game's crowd-funding campaign here.

I think we need a reminder of just how promising it looks. Let's all sit back and enjoy this hour of live-streamed gameplay again.
