There is no way to really know how worthy the game actually is prior to properly playing and experiencing the final finished release build.
I mean....it was around this time last year a certain other indie game released that literally promised us the universe and came off the back of a 3 year long hype train that formed massive online cults, supposed endorsements by famous directors and stars...and basically everyone thinking it was going to be the second coming and a major revolution in the gaming industry. And the game released for the full $60.
I think people know what game I am talking about.....and the dream shattering backlash that ensued very quick after it released!!!!
But Warhorse on the other hand have been a lot more forthcoming and open about what we can expect for KCD....going as far as to release an online beta version for PC gamers to experience.
I only actually found out about KCD back in May. I was actually looking for info on a possible new Saints Row game. And knowing Deep Silver was the game developers publisher (ever since THQ went bust) I was seeing if there was any chance Deep Silver was going to show off a new Saints Row game at E3....and saw nothing about it and was disappointed. Though kind of expecting there to be no new game.
Then I noticed they had KCD listed as a game that was going to be shown at E3. As soon as I saw it was meant to be a big open world realistic Medieval game....and most important of all, SINGLE PLAYER ONLY!!!!....and coming to PS4.....then watching a few videos on it. Well then I was sold on the idea of what this game seems to be aiming for.
How good it will really turn out to be or how worthy it actually is, I don't know. But I REALLY love the idea and concept Warhorse are going for with this project. And I intend to purchase it on release day on PSN digital download.
Am hoping for a good game....NOT expecting an earth shattering masterpiece, though it really would be awesome if it turned out to be one of those. Just want to keep expectations reasonable and well in check.
