It’s not easy being a friend of Sir Hans Capon, especially when he has a new crush. Regardless, that’s what Henry has to deal with in the second DLC for Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The Amorous Adventures of Bold Sir Hans Capon is now available for the action RPG and brings several new quests into the fray.
The DLC’s story is pretty simple – Sir Hans Capon wants to win over fair maiden Carolina. To do this, Henry has to indulge in romantic poetry, fight off a crazed butcher, infiltrate a camp of bandits, and even take part in a dice tournament. Of course, there’s also a corpse to dig up and a murder to investigate. Three new quests will be available overall, and you can expect plenty of medieval shenanigans.
For those who don’t own the DLC, the free Tournament update is also live. Head to the Rattay Upper Castle courtyard and take part in a tourney of combat for some neat prizes. The update also fixes a number of bugs in quests like “If You Can’t Beat ’em” and “Gallows Brothers”, along with improving the dice mini-game. Check out the notes in full below for more details.
– Optimizations –
- Texture streaming massively improved. Pop-in of the more detailed textures or body parts should be much less apparent.
- We have optimized despawning of items. This should positively affect performance for some players.
- NPCs no longer randomly drop items while going into less detailed LOD state. This should slightly improve performance.
– New features –
- Tournament! – The tourney takes place every few days in the courtyard of Rattay Upper Castle. Depending on how far you’ve progressed through the story, ask either the Samopesh blacksmith or Sir Hans Capon to make the necessary introductions.
- Dice minigame improved – We have added a new set of dice with a “Joker” side and three types of straights to score. It is now easier to gain points with wild dice, so we raised the score limit to 4000 points.
