First Kingdom Come Deliverance DLC From the Ashes Turns the RPG Into a Management Sim Today

"Sim"-dom Come: Deliverance.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Warhorse's historical RPG, released its first premium DLC today called From the Ashes which lets the player become the bailiff of a new settlement. Players will help manage, build, and plan the new settlement and oversee all parts of its growth.

From the Ashes is a paid DLC that sees the main character take on a new role as Bailiff, an overseer role of sorts where players can decide which structures and buildings to build, preside as a judge over citizen disputes, and basically manage the day-to-day of a new settlement built atop the burnt ruins of a bandit camp. You can see the DLC trailer below.

From the Ashes looks to veer towards management sim territory which is a bit of a departure from the Kingdom Come base game, which is more geared towards the RPG aspects of Warhorse's medieval world.

Kingdom Come prides itself on its realism, with players forced to manage their time, resources, and energy to properly progress through the game's accurate recreation of medieval eastern Europe. The game was criticized for defending its lack of minorities on historical accuracy, something disputed by historians.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance From the Ashes DLC is available today on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for $9.99. For more on Kingdom Come, check out our complete Kingdom Come guide for walkthroughs and tips.
