Kingdom Come: Deliverance is Staying Away From Denuvo, Season Passes, and Microtransactions

Kingdom Come: Deliverance promises to be one of the most realistic and immersive medieval RPGs ever made. Possibly the most realistic one now that I think about it. There’s definitely no shortage of medieval RPGs out there, however, most of them feature magic, mythological creatures, or some other types of fantasy elements. Kingdom Come: Deliverance wants to be different. The developers over at Warhorse Studios did their homework and made sure that every aspect of the game is as historically accurate as possible. This includes characters, combat, and especially the kingdom of Bohemia, which serves as the main setting of the game.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance already looks to be an interesting title from a gameplay perspective, however, nowadays there are things that can ruin even the best titles. Things like microtransactions and DRM, for example. Well, anyone looking forward to the game will be happy to know that Kingdom Come: Deliverance will not feature any of that stuff.

Denuvo is the most well-known and effective anti-tampering software out there, which is why it’s present in so many games. But despite being a useful tool for publishers and developers, Denuvo is also known to negatively impact game performance and is generally disliked by most gamers. Fortunately, Warhorse Studios announced that Kingdom Come: Deliverance will not use the anti-tampering software. Although not including DRM is likely to make the game easier to crack and pirate, it’s also a very consumer-friendly move by the developer and one that gamers will no doubt appreciate.

Meanwhile, Warhorse announced on Twitter that there are also no plans to include a Season Pass for the game. The company already confirmed that Kingdom Come: Deliverance will not have any sort of microtransactions either. Basically, it looks like the developers are trying to stay away from all the predatory business practices that have been plaguing video games for the past few years. This also means that no content has been cut from the game just to nickel and dime us later. Companies like EA and Activision should definitely take note.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is set to launch on Steam on February 13th. In case you missed it, a lengthy new gameplay video was released earlier this week. Check it out below if you want to see the game in all of its glory.
