Medieval action-strategy game Kingmakers lets you travel back in time and bring a SUV to a sword fight

When I first watched the reveal trailer for Redemption Road Games’ upcoming medieval “action-strategy sandbox” game, Kingmakers, I thought I knew exactly the vibe it was going for. That was until I got 23 seconds in, and realized it was offering something vastly different. 

As you’ll have no doubt picked up from the headline, Kingmakers is no regular medieval warfare game. In reality, players will step into the shoes of an elite task force operative from 500 years in the future who’s been sent back in time in order to alter history itself and prevent the apocalypse. This alone is a really interesting concept, but the developers have taken it a step further by daring to answer the question, ‘What would happen if you brought modern technology to a sword fight?’
