Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2: Over 500 hours of audio recordings – for one character

The recently announced medieval role-playing saga Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2 continues on its way. An important development milestone has now been reached.

Things are moving forward with Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2 and that's a good thing according to the current plan, as the massive role-playing game is set to replace its great predecessor this year; Whether this will happen or not… We still have slight doubts, given the scale mentioned.

At least one more development milestone has now been reached. Tom McKay, actor of the main character Henry also known as Heinrich, completed his voice recordings. It may sound mundane, but it's not when you consider the scope of recordings. According to this, he is said to have spent 508 hours in 127 studio recording sessions. This could mean that he's a very bad voice actor and needs countless takes, or that Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2 will be a dialogue-heavy game.

Of course, the latter will not surprise us, there have already been lively talks about the previous game and of course not all 508 hours will be included in the game. But the sheer amount of audio recordings of just one character is quite an achievement. Luke Dale, who plays Hans Capon, commented directly on the message, saying: “Guys, we're almost there.”

Czech Warhorse Studios, led by mafia creator Daniel Vavra, has a lot planned for a sequel to the medieval role-playing game. The game aims to surpass its predecessor in every respect, from scope to production value. “What we're doing now is what Kingdom Come: Rescue was initially supposed to be, but we couldn't do it because we didn't have enough resources and experience,” Daniel Vavra said at the announcement.

We're excited because we actually liked the first part, despite some problems, especially of a technical nature, thanks to the approach of implementing a more realistic and authentic medieval role-playing game rather than the typical fantasy. Which seems to have also resonated with the audience, because Kingdom Come: Delivery Delivery sold six million copies and thus laid the foundation for the development of the new part.
