Kingdom Come: Deliverance had a rocky launch back in February last year, but that didn't stop it from selling a million copies within two weeks of release. As a backer and day-one player, I had my share of issues, but I was still very much engrossed by the experience. It was and remains an extremely flawed and niche open world RPG with performance issues and some historical inconsistencies, but its immersiveness is something else. I often had to pull myself out of the game after sinking hours into it.

Publisher Deep Silver and developer Warhorse Studios have now announced Kingdom Come: Deliverance Royal Edition for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will include the base game and all DLC released until now, plus the final DLC that's yet to be released. These include Treasures of the Past (originally a backer and pre-order exclusive), From the Ashes, The Amorous Adventures of bold Sir Hans Capon, Band of Bastards, and the unreleased A Woman's Lot. There were also some free DLC after release, such as the Hardcore Mode and the Tournament activity. And while the game does include mod support on PC, I've found that the modding community for the game isn't as dedicated as, say, Fallout: New Vegas modders. Many mods are now abandoned and unsupported by the game's current version, unfortunately.

While we're on this subject, let me say I have actually reviewed each of the DLCs released so far. The review of the first DLC, From the Ashes, will be published tomorrow. The other two will follow a couple of days later. I also intend to review the final DLC, A Woman's Lot as soon as it's released. So stay tuned to TechRaptor for more coverage of Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

Do you intend to pick up the Kingdom Come: Deliverance Royal Edition? Or will you wait for the inevitable sequel to wrap up the cliffhanger in the ending? Let us know in the comments below!
