Kingdom Come: Deliverance has had an impressive launch, despite all the bugs, performance problems and the game’s general unfriendliness towards players.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance developer Warhorse has announced that the RPG has sold 300,000 copies on Steam, and over 100,000 at retail.
Game designer Daniel Vávra revealed the milestone on national Czech TV, adding that selling a million copies or more would be nice.
The game was Steam’s top seller the day it launched, and even managed to break into the top five most played games. Concurrent player numbers peaked at 75,071. That’s pretty impressive for an indie game not exactly designed to appeal to everyone.
Although many of Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s reviews weren’t kind, there’s no denying the game fills a niche in the medieval RPG scene with its historically-accurate setting, mechanics, and combat.
