And also an arm. And a leg. And a head, if you’re feeling especially generous/decapitated. Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Torn Banner’s claimant to the suddenly contested online thwack ‘n’ slash throne, is now riding onto the battlefield. And by the looks of things, it means business. And by “means business,” I mean wow. I’ve been enjoying War of the Roses despite a number of flaws, but I might give it a break this evening to stare intently as Chivalry’s download bar fills up on Steam. I’m exaggerating, of course, but it really does look quite impressive. Peruse the limb-severing carnage with your eyeballs – which are hopefully still attached to your body in some form or another – after the break.
Get out your swords and shields, today's the day that Chivalry: Medieval Warfare finally comes to Steam. We've been following this game for a while now, and Luke's even spent a good chunk of time playing the beta. I'm really looking forward to seeing how the final game works, and how good the mouse-driven first-person swordplay really is. (Though, as the trailer above is sure to note, you can also play Chivalry in third-person.
Between this and Dishonored, it's been a heck of a month for good first-person swashbuckling. I'm looking forward to digging in to the game and lopping off some heads.
