"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."
90/100 - Ausgamers

About This Game

Besiege castles and raid villages in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a first-person slasher with a focus on multi-player.

  • 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.

I bought it for 5 euros at a Steam sale, wasnt expecting much. Just bought it because I love hack and slash games and this one seemed a bit fun. First thing you'll notice when you start playing is the amazing voice acting. Its not just amazing its hilarious as well. Everyone is screaming and it just drags you in.
Lots of people play it, there are plenty of servers and game modes.
I'd recommend it to anyone who likes hack n slash games and also wants to have a good time.
Laughing guaranteed 100%

What I like about this game is that you are able to play it in Firstperson and Thirdperson, and actually both work good like DayZ or games like that.

In this game you Besiege castles and raid villages in lovely objective maps. If you dont like objective you can just play a TDM or FFA in this fast-paced medieval FPS.

And I love the voices in this game, you will notice immidiatly when playing this game, everybody loves to shout and run into their primitive victory or defeat!

I like it a lot.

Imagine Counterstrike, replace the ak47 for a sword and use it for decapitation.

One of a kind. Hundreds of hours of fun. Purely skill-based... and u even get to laugh! A moderately polished gem lost in an ocean of crap. Someone should buy it out and turn it into a masterpiece!

Fun hack and slash, lots of servers, plenty of people all the time. Takes time to get used to, however. Able to be modded effectively through workshop, which makes for good custom game maps, and modes.

However, price is a bit steep for what it is. I would wait for a sale, such as this most recent one.

Really good medieval-like experience with cool game modes and mainly only swords and other hack and slash weapons. Obviously with those you have bows that are difficult to master but are really deadly when used right.
Objective-based gamemodes are fun and challenging change to normal free-for-all type "kill everything that moves". Maps look really cool especially the newer ones that came out some time ago already.
The game mechanics require skill to master the different ways to hit with a sword to shoot with a bow and to hit with throwable things like little daggers and axes. It's still really fun even tho it might seem somewhat difficult at the beginning. But hapily for beginners there are a lot of low level servers for players at levels 0-15 so they can train their swordskills against people closer to their level.
Graphics look good and physics are really fun. Nothing is better than slashing some heads off of dead enemies.

If you like gore, skyrim, detached limbs, and sword fights, this may be the game for you. Chop away at your enemies neck, to produce a wonderful geyser of blood!

This game is absolutely fantastic. It's the most amazing game I've ever played in my whole entire life. This game, is litterally the opposite of Hitler. This is the gun that shot Hitler while he tried to hold it back with his own two hands. If you don't have this game, you should get it. Honestly. Especially if your name starts with D and ends with Errick. *cough cough*

Wish it had a working armor system instead of heavy armor = more health
wish they would bring back 1st person death, but that is just a minor issue
love the fast paced combat, and it is just amazing to look at both in character detail and scenery
great soundtrack and voices
but manny of the weapons in the game while high quality i just do not like the look of.

appart from a few personal astetic issues and lack of a working armor system it is close to the best medieval game since warband

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior are two games that have definitely earned a place in my top favorites. Deadliest Warrior is more Team Deathmatch oriented with only a few objective scenarios like Plant The Banner, Capture The Banner, and Hold The Banner. Medieval Warfare has several Team Objective game modes, as well as, Team Deathmatch, Last Team Standing, and it is also open to community mods. You can think of this game as Skyrim with multiplayer arenas. Alas, no there isn't any magic, however, lopping the heads and limbs off of your opponents, or oops! Your teammates...surely makes up for it! The two are always going on sale so you can pick it up for cheap if you haven't already. If you have already picked it up then what are you doing?! GET ON!
