Although Tom McKay, the actor portraying Henry, has completed recording his voice lines for Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2, he is still actively promoting the game. He recently conducted an interview with Insider Gaming, during which he expressed astonishment at the scale that the game will offer.

"50 levels up"

When asked how his adventure with Henry began, McKay replied that it started in the same way as any other job in this industry. He recorded material which he sent to Warhorse Studios, and the developer decided to work with him. At that time, however, the actor didn't expect that 8 years later he would finish recording dialogues for the much-awaited second installment - the hype for KCD1 was incomparably lower - which, by the way, made a big impression on him.

I've seen a lot of the work that the guys have done at the Warhorse, and it [Kingdom Come 2] is completely mind-blowing. It's not just a kind of next level from the last game; it's like 50 levels up from there.

Although we already knew that Kingdom Come 2 would offer a completely different scale than its predecessor, McKay's words can definitely stimulate the imagination. We can only hope that they will turn out to be true.

By the way, the actor mentioned that motion capture sessions were conducted for Kingdom Come 2, during which, unlike the first game, faces were also captured. So, it appears that the game will provide much improved facial expressions.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2 will be released later this year on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S. The exact release date isn't known.
