There is no multiplayer or co-op support in Kingdom Come: Deliverance. That doesn’t mean that you have to tackle every fight on your own, though. In this guide, we’ll show you how to get help from the game (in lieu of other players).
How to get co-op-like help
Pretty early in the game, you’ll be searching for a stablehand named Ginger. One of the numerous ways to handle on of the numerous steps in this quest is to take on a pair of bandits in the forest. Since you’re probably underprepared to take on both bandits at once (and survive), this can be a very frustrating step. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were someone to help you?
While there’s no way to ask your real-world friends for help, the world of Kingdom Come: Deliverance is full of NPCs. In the example above, once you get tired of getting killed by bandits over and over again, you can head back to Captain Bernard in Neuhof. When you talk to him, one of your dialogue options will let him know about the bandits. The next thing you know, he’ll be right there, fighting the bandits by your side.
Nearly every objective in Kingdom Come: Deliverance has multiple solutions. Everything from time of day to weather to your reputation can figure into how you choose to handle a task. Besides the obvious options of brute force, stealth or bribery, keep in mind that Henry’s not a one-man army — he’s just a guy with a job to do. And that adds a new option to your problem-solving tools. Talk to the people involved in your quest, side quest or task as you learn new things. New options might open up for you.
