Forums - Gaming Discussion - Kingdom Come: Deliverance sells a million in its first week

 

I'm really glad for. It's a good counter to Bethesda dumbing down the elder scrolls series. Maybe it will provide an alternative to Elder Scrolls and competition to Bethesda. Btw, this the dev's first game. Please read the article.

"Kingdom Come: Deliverance is the latest AAA game to grace our monitors, courtesy of Warhorse Studio. The game has been lauded for its dedication to historical accuracy and a rare take on the RPG genre. That praise looks to have translated into sales figures, with Warhorse Studio CEO Martin Frývaldský confirming that the game sold a million copies within its first week, across all platforms."

"That figure is impressive by all counts, especially considering the fact that the game had a number of funding issues during the course of its development. The studio, in fact, had to launch a Kickstarter campaign to prove its commercial viability to investors."

Here's some screen shots of the game.

Good to hear! It's always nice when smaller studios manages to deliver something that's "beyond their scope", as with Hellblade last year.



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Good to hear. I hope it goes on to sell a few million more too. I want to get a copy at some point, just don't have the time/money for it right now.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Congrats on the success. I'm getting a copy once it goes on sale.

Completely unrelated, but Skyrim > Oblivion and its not even close. Perhaps the factions were worse , but Skyrim improved upon Oblivion in almost every other aspect.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Good for them, I've been on the fence for a while on this game... going from absolute must buy to waiting until it gets patched.

Now, I'm back to must buy. Gonna jump in next week.

To be honest, it's a bit buggy. If that is something that would bug ya then you might want to wait a month or so for patches.



The main man behind this game Daniel Vavra was also the main behind one of my fav games Mafia (2002).

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

Indeed. He's been in the spotlight lately for silly reasons however in a thread I made here someone posted past interviews and a google trip through his history in the gaming industry. He is one of the most reasoned and simply likeable characters in game development I've come across. I was going to buy this game anyway on sale but I'm buying tonight at full price just to support these developers and the man himself, I really respect this guy now.

@OP ...The fact that they sold one million off of this says great thing for niche markets and niches of niches Project CARS, DiRT rally,  until dawn, kongdom come deliverence and the flurry of VR genres prove the niches are never dead but dormant until someone handles them right.

Love the devs, love the director and from the 4 or 5 hours of gameplay I've seen Im positive I'll love the game in a few wèeks when I get Finish Apex construct, run through moss, bored of sprint vector, too sore from knock out league regardless raid fatigue from FF14. 

What a great start to a year that is sure to be amazing.

Is the game really niche though? It's an open world RPG, that's about as mainstream as it can get (without being a shooter). The only differences are that it's a realistic rather than fantasy setting and the dev studio is much smaller than your typical open world RPG studio. Neither of those should qualify it as being a niche title though.

That's really good! But I'm waiting for bug fixes and perhaps even some mods before I get this.
