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.”

"I’m rather enamoured by the unique flavour of online combat presented by Chivalry. It’s fresh and fun, and like the very best games is easy to get into yet incredibly hard to master."

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.

First I have to say I really loved this game when I started playing.
But than the often mentioned broken game mechanics got the better of me.
On hight level servers people spin like a roundabout, jump like grashoppers, bend their bodys enough to make orthopaedists faint and do a lot of other things that should be impossible to do in armor.

If you look for a game that is like the trailer promises, keep searching and tell me when you found it.
If you want a more precise explenation of the mentioned mechanical exploits, take a look at this site: http://lagkill.net/2015/05/09/a-guide-to-advanced-and-obscure-mechanics-in-chivalry-how-to-gain-an-edge-over-everyone-else/ and remember this is pretty much all you will see in this game

Not worth getting anymore... it was fun and still is for veterans, just new players can easily find themselves leaving quite quickly.

But if you're looking for a kickban simulator then get this game. 10/10

If you're seriously looking into a good medieval combat game, get Mount and Blade: Warband. Tons of mods, more active community, single player/multiplayer, and the best DLC of all time, Napoleonic Wars.

I want to like this game, but the combat is so slow and clunky that it's impossible to get into. You know those moments when your frame rate drops in a game that you can normally play on full settings? The headache and the stomach clench from waiting for either the frames to return to normal or the computer to crash? That's combat in this game. It's not fun.

There's nothing quite like the sheer joy you get when the sword swing that you started three full literal seconds ago juuuust barely falls short of its target. Or, better yet, hits and does no visible damage.

It's ok I guess, but the community is comprised of salty, whining, mechanic exploiting, votekick abusing, server hogging, rank boosting crybabies. Most of which will resort to whatever cheap and unrealistic tricks they can to get a quick kill, under the guise of skill.

This game is anything but its name.

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.

Quite possibly the most brutal gaming experience to date.

- First time playing the game
- 4 classes, guess I'll go for the one with the biggest sword
- Playing the knight when suddenly, vanguard rushes me with a polearm and I quickly bleed out.
- Continue playing and proceed to get decapitated.
- learn about different attacks and manage to 5v1 some people with a war hammer

It only takes one round to fall in love with this game. If a medieval bloodbath is something that fancies you, pick this game up!

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.)

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)

You should definitly try out this game if you like epic medieval battles, sure, the game is little hard at first and you have to get the hang of it before you can experience those epic battles but the point is not to give up.

From my experience:
1-5 rank - WTF is going on
5-15 rank - omg i'm good at this (if you play in 1-15 rank servers)
15-25 rank - *getting in the "real world"(servers that are for all ranks)* I suck hard at this game #depressed
25-35 rank - I finally have more kills than deaths !
35-40 rank - omg i'm actually kind of good
40-? rank - polishes skillz
can't say more because i haven't reached a very high rank...

p.s. you can chop off heads

I love this game.
Dont like playing online tho as you tend to end up with people who have a massive ping and then your fighting teleporting ninjas!!
The dev team need to come up with a way for us to create servers with ping limitations then i would be extremely Happy with this product aswell as the Deadliest warrior which has a few bugs such ♥♥♥ problemes with aound which then cause problems with the actuall game. Also graphics are not syncing properly.... I play with a HP Pavilion g6 Note Book pc
AMD A4-4300M APU processor which has 6gb ram and a Radeon HD 7420G graphics card 2.50Ghz.

Still reccommend this to all you team strategy hack n slash fans 7/10
