Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Patch 47 - Unleash the Vypress Sabre!



Unleash the Vypress Sabre in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare - a crossover weapon from Torn Banner Studios’ upcoming multiplayer magic & melee FPS Mirage: Arcane Warfare.

Join the Mirage Steam Community to unlock this brand new weapon in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, available as a free replacement for the Sabre.

Also in this patch, a freshly baked batch of community-created weapons and armor:


This patch also addresses the following fixes.

Changes

Gameplay
  • Miscellaneous exploit fixes
  • Various config file exploits fixed (e.g. removing foliage)
  • Tournament Mode; only admins can unpause a paused match

Misc.
  • fixed inverted normal map on Cold Spectre Greatsword
  • Fix crash when downloading workshop files if using -nomovie
  • added new UGC rounds 10,11 and 12!
  • added Vypress Sabre… must be a member of Mirage Steam Community

Maps/Levels
Coldfront
  • reverted accidental change that effectively broke the king objective. Removed bonus time for *completing second objective.

Castle Assault
  • added blockers to prevent you from reaching the gate to the king immediately. They are destroyed 10 seconds after the town objective completes.

Citadel
  • disabled collision on ash particle and instead added weather volumes to interior spaces to turn off the ash

Cove
  • spawn point access blockering, some were quite easy to get into from the outside.
  • Also some blocking volumes added to prevent a map exploit where players could get inside buildings they aren’t meant to.
  • Cove LTS - fully blocked off spawn point zones

Forest
  • set lightshaft meshes and fireflies to medium detail up from low (will not show up on low detail now). Set fixed bounds on fireflies particle system.

King's Garden
  • added blockers during the first stage to prevent you from reaching the gate to the king, preventing attackers from camping the gate before the ram objective is complete to make it more fair to defenders

Outpost
  • set owner of first objective properly so when Agatha successfully completes it they are no longer told they failed
  • tent burning progress bars are now split between left/right tents
  • changed values on mason chieftain AI settings to not be out of range (which can make the AI act dumb)

AOCFFA-DrunkenBazaar-CM_p
  • New! FFA map in the final library area of Drunken Bazaar
  • Beta note: fixed broken spawns from first beta build

Misc maps
  • there was one stair mesh with bad lightmaps which is all over hillside

"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."

“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.”

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.

Should you buy this game? No. Absolutely not.

This game, for some reason or another, is home to some mind-numbingly huge ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. The game itself is actually quite fun and interesting; it offers a varied experience that only becomes better with friends. However, all that charm is gone if you play online. Online is cancer. Yes, people online can be jerks. Hence, most games have a votekick feature for those little ♥♥♥♥♥, but this is a different ballpark. This isn't a case of the odd ♥♥♥ here and there, almost every match will have some ♥♥♥♥ with some complex coming on to ruin the fun.

This isn't to say the game can't be great; it can be. You just have to find either the rare ♥♥♥ free server or have enough friends to make it work. That is why this game is so hard to simply recommend or not recommend. I recommend the game, but you aren't just buying the game. You are paying to be a part of a community, and that community is awful. You can disable chat if you want, and you should if you buy this game. However, you should just think of the implications of that statement: you should cut off communication in this game.

Maybe you are more tolerant of asshats than I am, if so then power to you. It is just extremely hard to recommend that experience. If you buy this, I really do hope you have fun with the cool game and that your experience isn't ruined.

Edit: Also, as everyone else points out: ♥♥♥♥ING COMBAT EXPLOITS.

A truly under rated game: This game is the most realistic swordplay game that will ever exist, the spam tactic will get you killed, the block tactic will get you killed, the long-range archer tactic will get you killed. This game requires perfect timing and tactical movements in order to outsmart the other player, and not thinking about what your next ove is will end up in your demise. The battles are amazing, just imagine walking out of your spawn and seeing a REAL battle going on with archers on the defensive wall and burning oil being poured on people, the enemy team overrunning you and you re forced to retreat and get reinforcements, that is the best thing about this game is that it's so immersive and believable. It's kind of how the old FPS shooters were such as Battlefield 1942 where you would see proped 20-20 matches of people trying their hardest and the patient ones end up victorious. I bought this game along with the deadliest warrior DLC for $5. It really is a shame more people don't play this and I highly recommend.

Best game ever. 100% fun. Can't get tired of it.

That is, IF TORN BANNER (the devs) FINALLY DECIDES TO FIX THE BLOODY SPINNING GLITCHY ATTACKS (the reverse overheads, rainbows and silly things like that).

No medieval swordsman ever 360° spinned attack while crouching. Unless he wanted to die quickly.

I will pass my review in a "I recommend" status as soon as it gets fixed.

But man I love this game, and it kills me to see that it is still not properly fixed.

> Join dueling server
> Select the Knight class
> Queue up to fight
> Get paired with a new player, knows nothing about the game
> I do the crouch-smashing-your-head-into-the-floor gesture, as a sign of good luck to my opponent
> I can smell his fear
> See that he doesn't do the same gesture, I lose respect for this peasant
> I move to the very center of the arena, allowing him to make the first move
> He takes a swing, but block it as if it was nothing
> I then slice his head off with my axe
> I stare down at his headless corpse, hear and see blood spewing from his neck, his head rolls off to the side
> Queue up again
> And again, and again
> Keep winning lots of duels
> Next queue
> Opponent is a formiddable one
> We do the good luck gesture
> We both walk to the center of the arena
> I take a swing, and he blocks it as if it was nothing
> He then slices off my head with his axe
> He stares down at my corpse, sees and hears blood spewing out from my neck
> Whoever fights noobs, should see to it that in the process he does become a noob. And if you gaze long enough into the blood spewing corpse, the corpse will gaze back into you. - Friedrich Nietzsche

Was a good game but am not happy with the combat exploits. The devs need to fix the combat exploits by eliminating the rainbow/overhead/whirlwind attack, or whatever its called! DEVS FIX THIS ASAP ITS RUINING A GREAT GAME!

from level 0-15 this game is great, once you figure out how the weapons work the only thing left to do after you reach the rookie level cap of 15 is be thrown in an MLG Jedi Master swordsman server and get your ♥♥♥ pounded.



dont buy.

Chivalry is actually pretty enjoyable when you first start playing. After a certain point, however, you realize that the game is broken beyond reason. When you're past level 15, you'll no longer be able to play in low level servers. It means you'll be stuck with 1500 hour tryhards who'll make use of every possible broken mechanic, glitch and bug in the game to dominate you. Apparently, instead of fixing their game, the developers decided to "include" everything broken in the game as part of its core mechanics. Because they are too busy developing another equally broken sequel. They are still updating the game regularly, but the patches mostly include community made cosmetic skins which are sold by real money. Not much bugfixing and never the most important stuff.

What's worse is that the game has one of the most toxic communities I have ever seen. Whenever you try to point out the game's flaws, you will be mocked. You will be insulted. They will tell you to "git gud" at glitching or stop playing. You will be teamkilled by cancerous trolls that never gets votekicked and in retaliation, start a votekick against you.

Newer players realize these problems and stop playing the game sooner or later. So, the servers are full of these glitch♥♥♥♥♥ "experts" who are competing in their own ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ contest about who glitches the best. Since the game doesn't give you a "casual player" space, you'll be stuck in this mess until your growing mental illness prevents you from gaming, or you'll die of cancer.

If you buy this game, there are only 2 outcomes:
1. You'll hate its guts and regret paying even a single dollar for it. You'll most likely uninstall it and never look back.
2. You'll bite and become a glitchmongering cancerous ballerina yourself. You will look down on every reasonable person who realize that the game is a broken, pathetic piece of human feces. You will masturbate on other people's misery.
