Kingdom Come: Deliverance Sells Around 500,000 Copies

A lordly launch for a niche RPG.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an imperfect RPG, but it has some interesting ideas. Evidently, those ideas and the game's general ambition were more than enough to convince people to give it a try on day one.

Deliverance has reportedly sold somewhere in the neighborhood of 500,000 copies. Designer Daniel Vávra talked about the sales on national Czech TV (via VG24/7 and Czech newspaper Hospodarske Noviny), where he also said Warhorse is hoping to sell a million copies or more.

Digital platforms are Deliverance's bread and butter. 300,000 copies of the game were peddled through the virtual marketplace, and it was Steam's top seller on its February 13 launch day.

Deliverance's early reviews showcase extensive complaints about bugs and glitches, and Warhorse promises a patch is coming soon. That'll mean the end of seeing NPCs deliver flying karate kicks straight out of the Matrix. A shame, maybe, but I guess that's not the kind of thing you can keep in a game that prides itself on delivering a true-to-life medieval wartime experience (unless it's a game about the deadly 15th century Hungarian Dragon-Monks—oops, I've said too much).

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. If you're having trouble finding your way through this dense game, don't be shy; check out our beginner's guide.
