Kingdom Come: Deliverance Patch 1.9 improves performance and fixes bugs

Kingdom Come: Deliverance, the medieval RPG video game who had set records throughout the past is deploying yet another update. Unlike previous patches, this time Warhorse Studios is aiming to improve a lot of in-game tutorials, performance, enhance events, but also fix NPC positioning to suit the current batch. Patch 1.9 aims to improve a lot of things, and you can find them all below.

The tutorial improvements aim for clarity that will allow the players to easily understand what the hint implies on. The game also received new tutorials such as combat to designate player’s needs.

When it comes down to performance, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is set to receive a huge improvement, developing a much more consistent and stable frame rate performance. Thanks to the new Graphics tweak and the new NPC behavior, the game is bound to look a lot more fresh and realistic.

NPCs will no longer stay under the rain if it’s raining, but will most likely take cover and use solid objects such as roofs and trees found in the environment to protect themselves from cold. At last, a patch without bug fixes won’t suit the content well, as patch 1.9 includes a bunch of them too.

For more detailed 1.9 patch notes, check the section below:

Better introduction and tutorials
  • All tutorials now have improved formatting.
  • All tutorials rewritten with 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 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 download of any new patch, all installed mods will be disabled and moved to a specific folder; player will be notified by overlay in 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

Continuing where I left before feels refreshing. Addicted to the gaming industry, best I do is working on looter-shooters but also express my opinion on a variety of BR video games. Future Game Releases is my new home and I hope it will stay that way.
