Activision has announced it will bring Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Torn Banner Studios’ intense, melee-oriented action game, to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next month. This new release features 24-person online multiplayer, over 25 maps, dedicated server support and a new horde mode for teams of up to six.
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is expected to storm the PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store on 2nd Dec. and Xbox One through the Xbox Games Store on 1st Dec. Also launching on these dates, on both platforms, is Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Ultimate Edition, which includes the full game, plus the Barbarian Character Pack, Marauding Arbiter Pack, Inquisitive Dreadnaught Bundle and Barbarian Weapon Pack. Pre-orders for the Standard Game and Ultimate Edition are expected to open on 25th November for Xbox One only.
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare makes combat fast, forceful and precise with a deep melee fighting system and the ability to quickly switch between first and third-person perspectives. Lay waste to castles and villages as one of four distinct classes – Knight, Vanguard, Man-at-Arms and Archer – in battles of cold, ruthless steel across a multitude of solo and team-based modes. The game includes over 60 period-authentic swords, axes, maces, javelins, bows and more, complemented by a range of armours, helmets and siege weapons, including catapults, ballistae, boiling oil and battering rams.
A number of cosmetic DLC sets, each sold separately, will also be available when Chivalry: Medieval Warfare arrives. The Barbarian Character Pack contains savage barbarian skins for each of the game’s four classes. The Marauding Arbiter Pack features new skins and helmets for the Vanguard class. The Inquisitive Dreadnaught Bundle holds new skins, helmets and special weapons for the Knight class. Finally, the Barbarian Weapon Pack delivers five brutal weapons of war.
