Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Patch 47.5 - Hotfix!

This patch addresses the following fixes.


  • Fixed some texture LOD settings that could have been causing incorrect visibility of world objects


Castle Assault / King's Garden
  • Making barriers work properly (not stick in the way after the objective is completed). The barriers added in the previous patch were not implemented correctly and would often bug out, additional protection has been added to ensure they work as intended.

    Drunken Bazaar
  • Fixed the collision on the optional side bridge

Please expect our servers to be down for a time while they are updated

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.

the game itself is quite basic.. the graphics are not that great.. the customisation and weapons are quite limited (unless u want to pay for more) but theres still something about it.. the combat on the other hand is extremely far from basic and tbh theres nothing else out there quite like it.
the feeling of cutting some guys head off after a 2 and a half minute 1 on 1 scrap... or F****** 2 guys up on your own after they both recklessly swing for the fence is very satisfying.. all im gonna say is this is just one of those games u have to play to understand... no youtube video will do it justice.

So, its amazing game! So much fun! As for me, combat is perfect: its not so difficult, but it has some tricks, u need to learn combat system. Graphycs is good, Unrel engine makes its work. And sound! Oh, its so cool, when your team run and shouting "For Order!!!!"! Buy this game, play it and FOR THE ORDER!!!!

Definatly a fun game. Got some idiots in the game of course that really abuse the kick/ban feature. You will find yourself kick/banned from some servers more times than you care to remember. But when you do get into a good game with alot of the community it is great fun.

Spin to win. That's the maxim of soldiers from ye olde times.

Once I learned of this truth I became a Beyblade master.

I also didn't know that knights were made out of paper.

I learned a lot from Chivalry.

Chivalry: Let it Rip.

Edit: Don't forget to crouch. That's important.

For the first 15 levels of the game, it's fun. Everyone is new (Except the ones that make a new account so they can grief the lower level players) and the playstyles are pretty straight forward.
After level 15, you are forced into the "Standard" servers where everyone is using any gimic they can find. Rips the fun out of mechanics and makes it slightly infuriating.

I could arguably recommend this, but there are cons that limit the new player's funtime experience. As a veteran player of Age of Chivalry, I found this game a nice graphic retouching of the original, but I find it frustrating in places like getting kicked for your ping jumping up for a second, or the toxicity of this game's community.

Many of them have criticised the swing mechanic and how players abuse it to make them look like spinning helicopter ballerinas. Truth is that it's actually very easy to counter these reverse-overheads and speed-ups. It's only because after a while you can see where you'd put your block when they do these moves. In other words they become very predictable.

NOW however this does not make it fun for the new player at all once they are kicked out of the low rank servers where they must deal with it. New players would have to put real dedication into it and master blocking these helicopter swings. Making the value of this game decrease dramatically due to it's fun value being lowered by this.

So in conclusion... Get it or not? Get Age of Chivalry first, it's free and has similar gameplay, you're also able to determine if Chivalry is right for you, but the community of Chivalry might drive you away though if you question this swinging mechanic so either turn off chat completely or stick to AoC. THERE ARE RARE CASES OF THE BALLERINAS NOT BEING IN A GAME, so you might be lucky to find such a game, especially if you're a new guy.

I will be playing this though, just because I'm used to the swing mechanic's exploitation being used on me, so it's not a big deal, but like I said it might not make it fun for the new player. (I to this day remain a pure fighter, never abused the swing mechanic.)

I love this game so please fix it. It has been this way as long as I can remember, the devs have not abondoned us by proving through the use of microtransactions and a DLC. We know your there, so please fix the combat exploits of overhead swings especially. Anything would be a great start. Will fix this review if it ever gets fixed

Well this game is truly magnificant in every way possible, from getting slaughtered to being beheaded and your character gurgyling of blood once hes been killed, is definatly one of the best experiences ive had in a while.
Good things:
Well you can make yo moma jokes whick is bloody fantastic
You can teabag
All the classes and weapons are very balanced
Graphics are on point
taunting is also good
Being able to cut off limbs with laughter once your opponent is dead
The glitches that can happen to your ragdoll are unbeatable
and i can on and on but i think the list would've crashed valve
You can decapitate peoples heads :)
Range of weapons and classes
You can get but ♥♥♥♥♥ multiple times
You dont really get a tuturiol and just get plopped right in the middle of a blood bath
You always get DE_stroyed by someone with high ping
This game will cause you to call BS at the screen multiple times in a minute
Sometimes little pathetic throwing knives can go through your thick shield
You will always get double,triple and quadrouple teamed and you cant do anything about it
Full of people with high ping
sometimes lack of servers to your liking
You will get rekt by noobs at some point

Unfortunatly you can get offended by the yo moma jokes
11/10 would decapitate heads
