Mafia creator Daniel Vavra has a new company named Warhorse Studios and it’s kicking things off with the announcement of its debut project, a medieval RPG called Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
The announcement states that the game will be released on PC and “next-gen consoles,” which could mean that the studio hasn’t officially partnered with any platform holders at this time.
The team that brought us Knights of the Old Republic and Mass Effect is hard at work on an all-new franchise and it’s already playable, according to producer Casey Hudson. He has also said that the game will deliver “something new, the way we [BioWare] did at the very beginning of Mass Effect.”

Last night Amazon got another shipment of PlayStation 4 units in stock and they have surprisingly not all sold out yet. Sony’s next gen console is currently sitting at number one on the video game charts and selling fast, so don’t expect it to last long. This could be your last chance to snag a PlayStation 4 before the end of the year, as Sony has indicated that supply is limited.
If you’re looking to pick up a PlayStation 4 this holiday season and you don’t already have one in the bag, chances are you’re going to have to wait.

Don’t expect that to change before the new year, as Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House says that the console is likely to be ‘supply-challenged’ for the rest of 2013. Sony aims to sell 3 million PlayStation 4 units by January 1 and 5 million by the end of the fiscal year on March 31, 2014.
