Additionally, patch 1.9 was deployed on PC (Steam) for every owner of Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Performance has been improved in various areas according to the developers and there are some brand new features added to Kingdom Come: Deliverance, too. Check out the changelog below.

Better introduction and tutorials
  • All tutorials now have improved formatting.
  • All tutorials were rewritten with an emphasis on clarity.
  • Added some new tutorials.
  • First combat tutorial with Bernard improved.
  • Bernard now has his own map icon when ready to train Henry outside quests.
  • Many confusing situations during the first hours of gameplay improved.
Events improved
  • We improved the environment and NPC positions for most of the events.
  • Added better fast travel description to every event type.
  • Player's position now makes much more sense when pulled out of fast travel by an event.
  • No event should catch the player again immediately after a successful evasion.
  • Events were re-labeled. Traps and ambushes are no longer revealed to the player by the label. We apologize to all honest bandits in Rattay.
Proper dating with Theresa
  • You can now continue to date Theresa after "the act" (ahem).
  • Be careful though, Theresa has a mind of her own and can even dump you...
  • But if she likes you, she can help you in your endeavors.
Better handling of mods
  • After the download of any new patch, all installed mods will be disabled and moved to a specific folder; the player will be notified by overlay in the main menu. We highly recommend only installing mods that have been updated to match the current game version.
  • The game now handles installing and uninstalling mods containing new NPCs, items, perks and buffs much better. This should solve many corrupted saves.
  • The game now visually marks any save that is modded or was created from a playthrough using mods. We can't guarantee stability on these saves.
Other new features
  • We didn't want to leave bandits and Cumans without pets, so we gave them dogs as well. Unfortunately, the dogs adopted their masters' aggression and will attack Henry on sight…
  • Players can now switch to simplified lockpicking for gamepad in-game settings.
  • Changes made to enemies' perception to improve stealth experience.
  • Many NPCs will now take cover from the rain under roofs or trees.
  • Item categories added to horse inventory.
  • Guards now confiscate stolen items dropped near Henry when frisking him.
  • Dogs will now fall asleep after eating food with sleeping potion.
  • New first-person dialog camera added.
  • The first quest for every DLC now has a custom map icon.
  • Shooting on the move should be more precise now. The arrow was previously shot before the animation completely ended.
  • Merchants now have correct purchase prices corresponding to their trade.
  • The amount of Groschen on NPCs is now more accurately adjusted to their profession.
  • Changing graphics settings is much faster now.
  • We solved many performance peaks to optimize the game. Framerate should be more consistent now.
  • Framerate in battles slightly improved by adjusting visual settings.
  • We slightly improved framerate in the most demanding locations by removing some light sources.
  • Graphical settings adjusted. Lower settings should look the same and run slightly faster. Higher settings should run the same and look slightly better.
