Yesterday, Czech Reublic-based developer Warhorse Studios confirmed it’s upcoming Medieval RPG, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, will support PS4 Pro.
The news came via a weekly update from the game’s official forums, where Warhorse Studios said that while it isn’t 100% sure what specific PS4 Pro enhancements will be supported, the game will definitely offer “higher resolution or better graphic quality settings.”
Never heard of Kingdom Come Deliverance? No problem, here’s an official overview of the game:
The year is 1403, the region Bohemia, located in the heart of Europe, rich in culture, silver and sprawling castles. The game is based on a true story – a story of kings, heirs, a kingdom, castle sieges and bloody battles.
The King is dead and his eldest son Wenceslas IV becomes the new King of Bohemia.
Wenceslas’s enraged half-brother Sigismund imprisons Wenceslas and invades the country with his mighty army. Unfortunately, in the midst of this chaos, your character Henry suffers. The mercenary army destroys your home and kills your family, you are the sole survivor of the bloodbath and it is here that your road to redemption starts. Enjoy the detailed reconstruction of the 15th century landscape. Use weapons that were used by knights. Take part in epic historical battles that happened in Middle Europe and in castle sieges!
