UGC Data

We would also like to share the following data on the Customization Store, in order to help guide players on gaps in content offerings - so that you’re better equipped to decide what UGC to create next. We are constantly trying to keep customization offerings diverse to our players. If you make a high quality piece of work for a less represented class or weapon, it’s more likely to make it into Chivalry, sooner. The following charts represent the distribution of items - this is not sales data.

Knight and Vanguard are clearly dominating the class-specific items, without as much love for the Archer and MAA.

There are more options for item bundles (i.e. bundles including 1 helmet & 1 weapon) than single items. This chart does not mean that single items sell better - but that there are fewer bundled sets than individual weapons in the Customization store.

Team distribution
For content accepted into Chivalry so far, we’ve maintained a very even mix between Agatha- and Mason-only content, as well as stuff open to either side. We plan to maintain this ratio moving forward.

Weapon spread
In the below chart, the bottom axis shows the number of variants per weapon type. The Spear, Broadsword, Norse Sword, Longsword & Messer have the most variants, while many weapons - including Warbow, Crossbow, Hatchet, Polehammer, Short Sword and others - have none available yet.

What’s next?

We plan to release three more UGC update packs over the course of Summer 2015. Each pack will contain 3-4 weapon and helmet sets and 5-6 individual weapons. The data above includes what we plan to release in these three packs as well as all previous content - to give a complete sense of what our current offerings will be.

We also hope to share some general sales figures in the near future, to demonstrate what item types are selling better than others.

To sum: study the charts above and take an informed approach to designing new weapons and helmets for Chivalry. Quality of modelling and execution of concept are just as important as ensuring that your UGC items have a relevant, competitive position in the Customization store.

Thanks everyone for your hard work - keep up the incredible Chivalry Workshop submissions!

  • raised buried grass meshes in cave

  • modified lighting slightly to add some cooler tones in addition to the warm lighting

Dark Forest
  • Map exploit in final area blocked
  • Navigation Pylons weren't building properly

  • Block reverse overhead gate exploit

  • first wave enemies just have fists now

  • added AOCFlagAutoReturnOnly - works just like a standard CTF flag with the exception that the enemy team cannot touch it, they must instead defend it until it auto returns.

PC Gamer

Torn Banner Studios is holding a Chivalry Community Fest, which will see the addition of new maps and weapons to the bone-crunching first-person brawler Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, some exclusive in-game swag, and free access to the game over the weekend.

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare earned a very respectable review score of 81 around these parts (though you'll have to take my word for it, the review itself isn't online), and while I was less impressed by the Deadliest Warrior DLC that came out in 2013, I still had some stupid fun going full Braveheart with it. And as of 10.00am PDT today you'll be able to try it out for yourself at no charge on Steam.

Chivalry is also being updated with seven new, community-created maps and nine weapons and helms, an exclusive in-game "brand," and a swanky—you might even say foppish—"Muffin Top" hat for players who follow the game on Steam. And finally, if you like what you see, you can snag the game for keepsies for 80 percent off the regular price, which works out to $5/ 4.

The Chivalry: Medieval Warfare free weekend wraps up at 11 am PDT on May 31, while the sale price will hold until 10 am PDT on June 1. Enjoy the bludgeoning!
