Available now, The Amorous Adventures of Bold Sir Hans Capon is the latest DLC for Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
As its name suggests, it’s another chance for you to spend some time with Sir Hans Capon, a spoilt brat who also happens to be rather fun to be around. But it’s not really his adventures that make up the DLC, it’s yours; he’s just the reason you’re sent from one place to another. He wants to woo a lady, you see?
Sir Hans Capon has fallen head over heels in love with the butcher’s daughter, though he wishes to remain anonymous until he’s pretty sure of his chances. Cue him sending you on adventures to secure valuable jewelry and procure a mysterious concoction, as well as acting as his wingman to ensure his fair maiden responds to his advances. Just what could go wrong? Lots of things, it would seem.
Costing £7.99/$9.99, the value The Amorous Adventures of Bold Sir Hans Capon provides is wholly dependent on how you approach it. Charge straight through it with the most direct resolution to completing each task and it’ll provide you with under three hours of playtime. Take the route that will have you thoroughly investigating a murder and obtaining a must-have potion at a heavily reduced price, however, and that playtime might just be doubled.
The Amorous Adventures of Bold Sir Hans Capon has a little bit of everything. You’ll find yourself wasting some time playing dice, and may even win yourself some goodies in the process. There’s also likely to be a bit of combat involved, as well as some sneaking about. It may be short, but assisting Sir Hans Capon in his endeavours is certainly varied and interesting. Also, much of the dialog found in this new questline is genuinely hilarious.
Every meeting with Sir Hans Capon in Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a memorable one; he’s a charismatic fellow, no doubt. And it’s that charisma that really saves The Amorous Adventures of Bold Sir Hans Capon DLC from being one to miss. It may not add anything to the wider story of the game, or a long-lasting challenge, but it offers another reason to return to Kingdom Come: Deliverance along with plenty of laughs. Whether that’s worth £7.99/$9.99 I’ll leave up to you. But I have to say that I’m glad I’ve experienced it.
