According to Daniel Vávra, Creative Director of Kingdom Come Deliverance, the game has sold nearly 500.000 copies. The game seems to be doing amazingly well, especially for an indie game, no matter the marketing. Despite all of the problems the game has, many people like it quite a bit. At this speed, it’ll definitely break one million.
Kingdom Come Deliverance might not be the best-working game. It might be very rough around the edges. Its problems are numerous. There’s bugs galore, the lockpicking mechanic is awful, and the insistence on historical accuracy is rubbing some the wrong way. But, by god, it’s selling pretty damn well, according to Creative Director Daniel Vávra. In an interview on Czech national TV, he announced that they’ve sold almost 500.000 copies of Kingdom Come Deliverance. If those numbers are correct, despite its clumsiness, the game has plenty appeal to go around.
According to SteamSpy, about 165.000 people own the game on steam, with nearly 75.000 concurrent players at peak. Not only that, but Kingdom Come Deliverance is getting a lot of press, both positive and negative. While many are complaining about the bugs and some of the mechanics, a lot of people are praising it. And, if we’re being honest, the game does have its specific charm. It’s pretty unique as RPGs go. You might have to battle through some major annoyances to get to the good stuff, but many players think it’s worth it. When the major patches start hitting two weeks from now, the experience will probably be much more comfortable.
Kingdom Come Deliverance came out on February 13th, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. For more information about the game, you can check out our other Kingdom Come Deliverance articles, including Next To Godliness – Wine, Flowers & Roses and Mysterious Ways Quest – Sermon Guide.
