Chivalry 2, a new first-person fighting game set in the Medieval era by Torn Banner Studios, was released today, shortly following an open beta that took place last weekend. To mark the release of Chivalry 2, Torn Banner Studio released a trailer that gives players one last look into the game’s mechanics. The trailer showcasedcinematic previews and gameplay while highlighting some rare and unique situations players may find themselves on the battlefield. Chivalry 2 embraces its setting, allowing players to participate in wide-scale medieval battles, as shown in the launch trailer. With such weapons like swords, shields, and bows, players can fight against each other in frantic conflicts in a mix of game modes like team deathmatch and objective-based missions.
A New Medieval Combat Experience
Chivalry 2 features combat filled
with heavy strikes, feints, and a mix of offensive and defensive maneuvers used
to overwhelm opponents or survive uneven skirmishes. Torn Banner pit players in
the role of knights and soldiers, fighting for victory for their separate
factions. The game features eight maps, ranging from castle sieges, towns, and
even arenas. On historically authentic battlefields, the game features unique combat
scenarios, including being downed but still capable of fighting instead to earn
your redemption by helping take out the enemy in a last stand type of scenario.
With these additions to the game, Chivalry II continues to highlight its combat and battles. According to Torn Banner Studios, the game is not focused on just being a sword fighting simulation. The game allows you to pick up and use anything they can find, allowing players to adjust and adapt to a map or situation with the items or weapons they find. Along with the combat and gameplay, the game presents such wide scale conflicts the players can partake in, with the weaponry, catapults, and maps that can support up to 64 players at any time. The game overall showcases solid historical inspiration as a cinematic experience that Torn Banner Studios has built upon by building up its first original game, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.
