Deep Silver has released a new medieval-flavoured Kingdom Come: Deliverance gameplay video, and from the look of things you’ll be taking part in some seriously epic Hollywood-style battles. 

Last time around we had a look at a normal day in the life of protagonist Henry, which looked pretty tame by comparison. However, this new footage showcases Kingdom Come’s more lavish side, with scenes that wouldn’t look out of place in The Lord of the Rings or King Arthur (no, not the crappy Guy Richie adaptation with David Beckham). 

While the video is punctuated with some glorious countryside strolling and dialogue, the new footage is heavy on the fight scenes, depicting hordes of soldiers scrapping outside castle walls in the dead of night, troops marching into battle on a sun-soaked day, and some brutal close-up kills. 

Deep Silver has also been blowing its trumpet in regards to how much chatting is in Kingdom Come: Deliverance, with the game apparently boasting one million words of written back story; that’s more than twice the amount featured in J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy saga. 

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is due out on PS4, PC, and Xbox One on February 13.
