Chivalry: Medieval Warfare (Saga of the Crypts) Follow-up Patch!

We Fixed the Trolls... and some other fixes!
Crypts bug fixes

  • Fixed a game breaking error in Smelly Troll health calculation
  • Enabled one room / all rooms mode toggle during intermission
  • Removed unnecessary kismet on interactable objects (class select, manual level statues, health fountains), no longer need to use them multiple times for the events to fire
  • Forward spawning should work more reliably now
  • Fixed error where using the manual levelling fountains might cause class selecting to not level up your character
  • Manual levelling statues now also level character
  • Gates close on the class selection after a delay after enemies start spawning, prevents exploit of free health late in a round
  • Added a 120 second timer once hud markers are added to the final 3 enemies, you will beat the wave either when you kill them or after the 2 minutes ends
  • Altered enemy type spawn logic, less "super heavy" enemies in earlier levels
  • Buffed archer backpedal and strafe speeds, no penalty compared to forward movement now
  • Gave archer infinite ammo
  • Gave each class a unique character unlock at character level 6
  • Possible fix to enemies spawning in the wrong room
  • Added 4 new enemy spawn points to the upper floor of "room 1" (the one with the three long narrow stair cases down to the bottom floor) and spread out basement enemy spawnpoints
  • Fixed corpse VO
    Other Fixes
    • Belmez: Fixed exploit where players attacking could bypass objectives.

"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

“I saw my body slump to the floor, some distance away and then the hammer-bastard was standing over me, attempting to play croquet with what remained of my face.”

  • 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.

Ever wanted an FPS without guns?! No? Cease lying to thine self, knave! If so- get Chivalry: Medieval Warfare!

HOURS of fast paced, your teammate's sword-in face action with a whole variety of classes such as the slow-♥♥♥ shield guy knight in shining armor, exclusive spear user well-rounded vanguard, coward fast-moving man at arms and ANNOYING LITTLE FU archer, everyone can find a place on the battlefield!

Pros:
  • Melee battles that aren't just "mash left mouse button and maybe right click sometimes"
  • Lots of weapons to unlock that genuinely feel different from eachother.
  • Doesn't get repetitive too easily
  • Classes all have distinctive playstyles screw archers though
  • The character lines can be really funny. Also, there are lots of Shakespeare quotes. How could you pass that up?
  • Plenty of strategical variety in battle. While there are only three ways to swing (6 if you count different directions), tactics like dragging, matrixing and feinting really makes battles interesting, not to mention class mechanics like dodging and charging.

Cons:
  • Teamkilling is common, especially among lower rank servers. Taking it out would suck, though.
  • In a melee dependent game, lag is a HUGE problem. You pretty much need decent internet.
  • Learning curve can be a bit daunting.
  • THE ARCHERS ARE CUTTING US DOWN

Best teamkilling simulator on the market!
10/10, would slay archers where they stand again

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%

Well well well, after 800+ I think I can finally give my honest opinion of this game. Where oh where to start, lets talk about what this game does well.

For a start IT IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING in terms of graphics, and would look an perform a lot better if optimized.

Its combat system while widely criticized, is good in some areas in most of them in fact. The concept of mouse dragging is great, however because of what it is, it will always and I mean always be controversial.

The map design mixed in with the visuals, especially on some of the Team Objective based maps is actually really well done.

I could and would list tons of other good points about this, but I am going to keep it short here's my opinion on whether or not you should pick up this medieval simulator as it where.
I really think that if you are someone that has a lot of tolerance, and is willing to accept mechanics as they are and not how they should be then this is for you. There is always room to improve in any multiplayer game, and this game excells in most areas. I admit, it is not a very straightforward game to newcomers. It never will be, however if you have the patience to put up with some of the many annoyances this games system has then go for it!

It is not realistic, that you can spin your sword around your back and dodge out of the way of a sword. It is still possible to find fun in this game, if and only if you are willing to actually learn it.

That is all-Krsko

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.

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.

So addictive play it atleast once a day! My only problem is that the base game Medieval Warfare seems to be the only part getting updates/new-content while Deadliest Warrior has been left alone for quite a while. I hope to see this game get better and better over time, still a great buy.

HAPPY 2nd YEAR ANNIVERSERY!!!
