I am so ready for historical RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance. An open-world game set in the turbulent middle ages, with billhooks and guisarmes rather than magical wands and +1 longswords? Sign me up.

If you can't wait until the game's projected 2015 release to start hacking peasants apart with their own farming implements, you can back the game to get access to an Alpha version, which Warhorse Studios has revealed is coming in "September/October".

The medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance is still open for business when it comes to pledges late to the party, following its £1,106,371 Kickstarter success. Reward tiers are still available to late backers.

If you've already pledged then you can also upgrade to a higher tier. Their next stretch goal stands at $2m and they're just over $120k shy. They want to hire better actors for performance capture.
