TotalBiscuit

"It needs a little bit more skill, it's less defensive, it's a more aggressive combat system in general - particularly with the addition of abilities. The combat can be quite fast paced at times but it still has the weight of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare"

Angry Joe

“You know Chivalry: Medieval Warfare? Take that, take the training wheels off, take the historical restrictions away and then just go crazy with it and that’s what you have here with magic and special abilities.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YklJpKCCpNs


Game Informer

“The premise is easy to love, and with a focus on blocking magic and melee attacks at the right time while finding an opening for magic spells, Mirage is more than just your average FPS with swords and fireballs.”

Tom’s Hardware

“These days, you’re bound to see another multiplayer game with some variation on the first-person shooter (FPS) mechanic. However, Torn Banner stuck to its guns (pun intended) to deliver competitive multiplayer with a melee twist. Adding magic to the mix makes for new ways to take out enemies without overpowering the melee combat that serves as the game's backbone.”

Force Gaming

“Having played the game I’d say this is definitely a positive direction that they’re taking it in. They’ve got the the similarly deep combat mechanics [as Chivalry] but then with the extra layer of magic they can make combat a bit more interesting and add an extra layer of depth”

PC Gamer interview

“We’re bringing fighting game mechanics into multiplayer.”

Hardcore Gamer

“After every convention, certain games seem to stand out as the clear winners of a given event. After spending forty-five minutes with the brutal, intense Mirage: Arcane Warfare, it’s safe to say that players should eagerly anticipate Torn Banner’s next title. After all, there was a reason why fans kept on flocking back to hop in and get another match in rather than seeing something new.”

About This Game

Besiege castles and raid villages in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a first-person slasher with a focus on multi-player. Featuring competitive online combat that seeks to capture the experience of truly being on a medieval battlefield. Inspired from the intensity and epicness of swordfighting movies such as 300, Gladiator and Braveheart, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare aims to bring that experience to the hands of a gamer.

The game is skill-based and controls like an FPS, but instead of guns and grenades, players are given swords, shields, maces, battleaxes and longbows. Set in a fictional, yet gritty and realistic world, players will fight in fast paced online battles besieging castles, raiding medieval villages and fighting for glory in the arena with up to 32 players.

Key Features:


  • Deep melee combat system provides players with a huge range of responsive combat options
  • Adjust your attacks and blocks in real time with the mouse for precise and full control of the action
  • Wield an arsenal of up to 60 brutal weapons ranging from broad swords and battle axes to longbows and javelins
  • Dynamic objective system brings team tactics and strategy to the forefront as players batter down gates, raid villages and assassinate enemy royalty to achieve victory.
  • Use a variety of siege weapons ranging from catapults, boiling oil, ballista, battering rams and more
  • Vast, lush environments that transport the player to a gritty and immersive medieval world.
  • Offline play options that allow players to gain familiarity with the controls and gameplay before being thrust into the action.

Got it off humble bundle for essentially nothing...
now im screaming and charging into battle, laughing heartily as i slice down peasants and try to backwards-mouselook-block as many archer shots as i can with my back-mounted tower shield because i saw someone do it once and it was badass as ♥♥♥♥...

People who complain about the games mechanics (accellerated and decellerated strikes along with feinting) are just crybabies. They're the only things making this game's crazy combat fun and unique, and you CAN deal with them. I'm sure they were left in on purpose because otherwise it'd be pretty boring.

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is nice, the gameplay is mostly nice, the important thing is your abilities (mostly) and the game is fast and fun. The hardest thing is be a new player, you have the noob servers, but when you start the game and starts to play the noobs on this servers will destroy you. I recommend it, if you are looking for multiplayers medieval combats. at last, if you are a br players, NÃO COMPRA ESSA ♥♥♥♥♥ A NÃO SER QUE ESTEJA NA PROMOÇÃO, PROS GRINGOS DEVE TA 5 DOLARES ESSA ♥♥♥♥♥, PODE COMPRAR, É DIVERTIDO, MAS SÓ SE ESTIVER NA PROMOÇÃO.

This is one of the few medieval themed games with a big focus on melee combat.

The fighting takes place on decent sized maps with some general objectives to accomplish. Those are mostly kill the enemy team's king, push the battering ram towards the gate, kill peasants or burn houses. They are pretty fun for both teams.

Sadly, for people expecting anything realistic, it is a dissapointment. The actual skill of this game focuses on exploiting bad physics. The combat against "experienced" players is immersion breaking as they are using all the exploits possible to gain an advantage, all while looking downright silly at the same time (knights doing moves no human being could do). It might take skill to do it but it simply isnt proper swordfighting.

You could probably find some fun in it if you're not looking for a interesting spin on melee combat, while not focusing on the realism whatsoever, or you plan on doing some fights with friends.

Personally I cannot recommend the game. I bough it for 1 eur along some other games (humble bundle) and found it quite fun for a limited time, but at full price it's definetely not worth it.

This is an amazing concept for a game,a medieval warfare simulator, and it could have been briliant, but the devs ♥♥♥♥ed up.Insted of focusing on gameplay and mechanics they add new more powerful weapons to the game which you can only get by paying more money.

Lost potential....

For the first 20 hours it is brilliant, some of the best fun I have had in a multiplayer game. Once you break level 15 it becomes a lot less fun, as you are in servers with people far above your skill level, who abuse the mechanics of the game.

For the £3 I paid for it, I'd say 20 hours of fun is still worth it though.

A decent multiplayer action game (no singleplayer!)

Chivalry is similar to Mount & Blade and War of the Roses games. Like WotR, Chivalry is much more fast-paced than M&B. Unlike both M&B and WotR, Chivalry has no mounted combat at all, although it's not a huge drawback, it's still something relevant. Maps in Chivalry are small and the game offers a lot of game modes: deathmatches, capture the flag, king of the hill and many more. During the game the player chooses one of four classes - an archer or light/medium/heavy infrantry. They play quite differently - their speed is different and weaponry differs as well. However, the game suffers from terrible hitboxes - some weapons hit the enemy while they seem to be still far away from him, while other seemingly go through enemies harmlessly. In addition, there seems to be some kind of autoaim when playing archers, it seems very easy to just headshot a lot (or I am very good at it, which I doubt a lot as I'm not a good FPS player). There is a huge amount of graphical bugs or half-baked meshes and textures. Overall, the game is fun and I recommend getting it, albeit after some time it gets a bit stale. I definitely enjoy it more than War of the Roses and vanilla M&B, but cRPG servers in M&B Warband still remain my favourite swordplay action game.

+ fun!
+ interesting game modes
+ decent combat

- terrible hitboxes
- no horsies
- a lot of bugs

+- tiny maps
+- very arcade and quick

I can't tell you how is this game realistic,real,indie & . . .
So awesome everything .... least the bugs :P
When nobody can join to a server only you that's the best part of the game.
Because this game is full of action. More players more fun.

I freakin' recommend it for everyone! 10/10

(Yes, i know only 3 hours but i played a lot of time in offline mod so i have about 60 hours.)

After breaking lvl15 it lets you into the other servers. Where people 20+ levels group together and beat on you and chuckle, it's not a fun game at all after a couple weeks, it's ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

Worth what I paid for it, though.

This game is fun but!!!
I do not recommend this game and better stay away, while The first 10-15 hours are where the fun is, After you finish rank 15 it is where this game is dead.

-The game hit boxes are broken. characters model can bend like matrix which make them very very hard to hit while they can hit you, also doucking and looking in the ground make it even harder. someone wanted to sell me a macro which will make my character glitch and become very hard to hit.

-There is also the spinning, where players will run around just doing 180 and 360 (known as helicopter simulator)

After you rank 15 you go in the battle with the higher ranks and the fun is gone! Also, to many high rank players get hurt feelings n start crying when you tell them that they have no life off CMW will kick u when u tell them truth on how they r 2 poor 4 a new game.. Kick me all u want but ill be the 1 with the new games n rare achevs.. Get a life losers

Don't care 4 it once bit.. The blocking system is a freaking joke! U may get a few lucking shots in but at the end of the match you will go negative and that will be every single game no matter how hard you try to fight.. The game also has some cheaters but they are few in number and quit when you call them out..

You also have some trash or as people call them now - Trolls who go around being a nuisance and when you try u'r very best to kick a person who is disrupting the whole game, No one wants to do the right thing and kick the 5 year old.. I can't believe how shameful pc players are and weak to let one person ruin the whole game and when you can simply just vote yes to a kick!

I do not recommend this game for people who don't like to fail when you are doing everything you can to fight but keep failing b'cuss of the games terrible made in game system! If you get mad easy like i do sometimes when a game like this is made bad, than don't waste any time or money on this one

I urge people to look past this game and look towards the future of medieval warfare games such as kingdom come or banner lord 2 but if you want a game like Chivalry then look towards Mordhau it fixes everything Chivalry should have fixed four years ago and adds a ♥♥♥♥ ton more than this game ever will. (and i aint talking about skins :O) Chivalry will always have a special place in my heart ;3 especially all of the friends and enemies i made but its time to move on and away from a company who keeps adding skins in instead of the patches we really need. However if you are tempted to buy this please do not buy at full price try it for free on free weekends and if you do like it get it while a sale is happening and i hope you have as much fun with this game as i did.
