"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.

I thought I was playing a medieval fighter; I was having fun swordfighting and throwing pebbles, but after playing with some high levels, I realized this was no medieval fighter, it was merely a spinning simulator.

The game is dying at a rapid pace. I don't expect it to be alive by 2017. With Mordhau coming soon I'd wait for that. This game is a beast of it's own but the glory days are behind it; the community it is left with is nothing short of terrible. The developers only add skins now and don't care for the game. Exploits in this game don't get patched anymore. Just wait for Mordhau honestly.

Great concept, poor execution. The majority of your deaths will be from "skilled" players twisting their bodies in impossible ways to get a ridiculous kill that would seem to belong in a comedy show. Like an enemy suddenly turning their backs towards you and doing the limbo while swinging overhead. Or doing a spin while contorting their bodies in a way that should disembowel them and looking up to the stars as if they're pondering the meaning of life only to spin again and stab you.

>Joins game for first time-"Aw yea! Time to chop some limbs off! Gunna be so fun!"
>Sees people spinning around chopping people-"Uh... Is this some type of modded server or just lag?"
>Engages combat for the first time-"Aw ye! Your heads going on my banner first!"
>Opponent spins around, I strike his head, but somehow he blocks it from behind, does some dancing technique and kills me-"I think I'll find a new server..."

>Joins new server

Combat system is ridiculous, hitboxes are, well, decent...

Some of the community is HORRIBLE, I see high level players votekicking low er level players or teaming up on them..

People whine because people use feinting, sure its a cheap tactic, but its a game mechanic..

When I first got the game back in around 2013, I quite enjoyed the game! I was sharpening skills with bots then going to multiplayer and had a blast dueling people and have a nice chat with them! Best of all! No dancing knights!

Now, well.. ehhh.. Dancing knights, really the only chat in the actual chat is

"feinting scrub!"

"stfu! feinting is a game mechanic anyways"

"Wow, lol, this noob cant even do a rainbow, Hah! Imbecile"

You better enjoy your time from level 0-15 before it reaches the point of elitists.

Game is, good, yet could be MUCH MUCH better, community is horrible.
