Watch eight minutes of raw gameplay from Mirage: Arcane Warfare from its first public appearance at PAX East 2016. The new title from the creators of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare will release later in 2016.

Recorded by our own team, in an Alpha version demo of Mirage.

Plus, check out PAX East hands-on media impressions of Mirage - to be updated with more to come!


"It needs a little bit more skill, it's less defensive, it's a more aggressive combat system in general - particularly with the addition of abilities. The combat can be quite fast paced at times but it still has the weight of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare"

Angry Joe

“You know Chivalry: Medieval Warfare? Take that, take the training wheels off, take the historical restrictions away and then just go crazy with it and that’s what you have here with magic and special abilities.”

Game Informer

“The premise is easy to love, and with a focus on blocking magic and melee attacks at the right time while finding an opening for magic spells, Mirage is more than just your average FPS with swords and fireballs.”

Tom’s Hardware

“These days, you’re bound to see another multiplayer game with some variation on the first-person shooter (FPS) mechanic. However, Torn Banner stuck to its guns (pun intended) to deliver competitive multiplayer with a melee twist. Adding magic to the mix makes for new ways to take out enemies without overpowering the melee combat that serves as the game's backbone.”,31676.html

Force Gaming

“Having played the game I’d say this is definitely a positive direction that they’re taking it in. They’ve got the the similarly deep combat mechanics [as Chivalry] but then with the extra layer of magic they can make combat a bit more interesting and add an extra layer of depth”

PC Gamer interview

“We’re bringing fighting game mechanics into multiplayer.”

Hardcore Gamer

“After every convention, certain games seem to stand out as the clear winners of a given event. After spending forty-five minutes with the brutal, intense Mirage: Arcane Warfare, it’s safe to say that players should eagerly anticipate Torn Banner’s next title. After all, there was a reason why fans kept on flocking back to hop in and get another match in rather than seeing something new.”

A new patch is now available for Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.

This patch adds a quartet of new Workshop items created by artist Oilystool, and donated for free to Chivalry players - as a way for the prolific Chivalry content creator to give back to the community. Follow the Chivalry Community on Steam to unlock the following items:
  • Myrmidon, a Javelin replacement for the Archer.
  • The Milanese, a Quarterstaff replacement for the Man-at-arms.
  • Headhunter, a Messer replacement for the Knight.
  • Cold Spectre, a Greatsword replacement for the Vanguard.
The patch also addresses the following fixes.

  • Added the Royal Squad helm, a helmet replacement for the Agatha Archer by Ni Huishenme (part of the Royal Squad set).
  • Removed console command exploits
  • Decreased range of “kick” action
  • Added customization options to Mercenary Roundshield by Oilystool
  • Removed all collision from a couple foliage meshes that blocked weapons
  • Map fixes:
    • Irilla: fixed two points bugs: Masons no longer get endless points until you die if you were in the trebuchet volume when the trebuchet objective is completed. Can no longer use the ram after the second door is destroyed, thus getting endless free points.
    • Stoneshill village FFA/TDM: made the gate to the castle with no collision a feature, not a bug! Gate is now visibly open. Fixed a broken blocking volume on top of a village house.
    • Hillside: "defend the ballista"/"destroy ships" hud markers stuck off in the distance removed.
    • Colosseum: side gate with potentially no collision fixed.
    • Belmez: added double check to fix potential issue where spawn points don't change after the barn is burnt.
    • Citadel: fixed collision issue on broken bridge mesh which was breaking firepots.
    • Drunken Bazaar: smoothed over collision on rubble immediately under bridge crank. Set final area peasants to non-moving so they stop wandering off the balcony. Added kill volumes off the balcony to prevent map escaping out that-a-way. Removed sticky spot on a rock along the push path.
    • Darkforest: further blocked off a roof in the final area that should be inaccessible
    • Belmez: fixed invisible spawn boat.
    • Castle Assault: removed access to a map exploit by walking on some cliffs in the river near the first objective.
    • Castle assault duel: moved spawn points outside of the inaccessible rooms
    • Shore: minor collision improvement on arch near first Agatha spawn.
    • Hideout: stuck spot behind a pillar jumping down to the breakable gate
    • Coldfront: that one floating torch. Siege weapons are disabled after second objective completes. Replaced the bots on the docks that usually go completely unnoticed with simple animated peasants. Blocked gate from being able to be hit from the rear.
    • Outpost: added extra collision to tree trunks that could be hidden in.

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare developer Torn Banner Studios has announced that its next project is an online multiplayer combat game called Mirage: Arcane Warfare. The studio said it will feature fast-paced combat gameplay and bloody weaponry, which makes it sound an awful lot like its less-wizardly predecessor, but with a much more vibrant color scheme. 

The website at is pretty thin at this point, containing just the teaser above and a countdown timer with slightly less than six days remaining. Once it zeroes out, the full trailer, and presumably some proper details about the game, will be revealed.

Despite the relative dearth of information, I'm actually kind of excited by the prospect. Chivalry's first-person melee combat is fun in a way that only teeing off on someone's skull with a sword the size of a small tree can be, and magic is a natural fit with that kind of experience. It matches up thematically (although admittedly more with giant swords than the medieval angle) and it could also be an interesting way to deepen the combat without having to dramatically change it.

The countdown timer will finish ticking off, by my calculations, on March 9.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - (Alice O'Connor)

If you want to run around a virtual battlefield lopping off knights’ arms with swords and axes, you can’t go too far wrong with Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. (Have You Played the first-person multiplayer melee murderfest?) But what if you want to do that and also be a wizard? Trying to perform coin tricks at your desk while playing will only get you killed. Friend, put your pennies away.

Chivalry devs Torn Banner Studios today announced Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site], which seems to be Chivalry with wizards. Wizalry.
