Chivalry 2 Announced

Publisher Tripwire Interactive and developer Torn Banner Studios announce Chivalry 2, saying a sequel to multiplayer first-person slasher is expected next year. Word is this will be a one-year exclusive on the Epic Games Store. The announcement trailer shows off gameplay to go along with the following details:
Chivalry 2 is a multiplayer first-person slasher inspired by epic medieval movie battles where players will experience the thrill of combat in massive 64-player battlefields brought to life. Chivalry’s flagship Team Objective game mode brings narrative to multiplayer by having players battle across multiple stages in contextualized objectives, thrusting the player into the action of all their favorite medieval movie scenes.

Players will immerse themselves in the sounds and sights of battle as they are thrust into iconic moments of the era, from the heavy thunder of cavalry charges to forest ambushes, sprawling castle sieges, and good old looting and pillaging. Survive waves of fiery arrows raining down from above, slay multiple enemies with a single strike and ride to war on horseback to claim glory by your blade. Riveting sound and effects ensure every blow lands with the sickening thud of steel sinking into bone, making Chivalry 2 the ultimate aggression outlet and emotional release. Think punching bag or stress ball!

Whether you seek to become a Heroic warrior, a blood-soaked murderer or the village goofball, enhanced player expression brings thousands of new voice-lines, deep character customization and a wide range of emotes expanding upon the series iconic battle cries allow for an impressive range of epic and hilarious roleplay opportunities. Whether you want to experience the intensity of Braveheart or the comedy of Monty Python, all the romance of the medieval era awaits.

Players will unleash their inner beast with weighty and satisfying combat utilizing a massive arsenal of brutal medieval weaponry. Based heavily on player feedback,
Chivalry 2 introduces a revamped, faster, and more fluid combat system that also offers an expanded range of creative choices, allowing players to perfect their own strategy and playstyle. The ability to fight through the pain while wounded or bleeding out and roll back to your feet from the ground or fight on even when down a limb gives players the chance to become a hero or die a good death.

“With Chivalry 2 we are bringing the grit and emotions of an epic cinematic medieval battlefield to a completely new level,” said Torn Banner Studios’ President Steve Piggott. “We have fixed the issues of the first game by redesigning our combat, animation and movement systems from the ground up and the result is a deeply satisfying and weighty physicality to every interaction. With an expanded combat moveset allowing for far greater player creativity, a re-imagining of our Team Objective game mode at scale and a focus on AAA level polish and visuals, Chivalry 2 is set to become the first true advancement in the genre.”

"The original Chivalry was an incredibly successful phenomenon that established the first-person medieval combat genre," said Tripwire CEO John Gibson. "We're very honored to be able to team up with our good friends at Torn Banner Studios to bring Chivalry 2 to fans. When two of the most successful, customer focused independent studios in the world collaborate, great things are going to happen. Chivalry 2 is coming. The king of medieval combat games is back. Long live the king!"

So, when Mordhau is already out on Steam and doing everything this is promising and more besides, their solution is to go Epic exclusive. Between this and Mirage: Arcane Warfare, I don't think Torn Banner has the best decision makers at the top. It's looking more and more like they got lucky with the first Chivalry and have been floundering that success ever since.

Been playing the new Mordhau game. 80 hours, level 30 now. So fun. Frontline mode. It's exactly like Chivalry. Very funny moments, and i like using the Maul (heavy slow short-range 1-hit weapon bone-cracking head obliterating fun)

I loved the first Chivalry and was excited to see the a new one. Then like others, saw that it's an Epic exclusive for one year and said NOPE.

Turns out, there's a new game just like this that was just released on Steam called Mordhau. Chivalry 2 is going to have a hard time now I think.

Played Chivalry over 1,000 hours, one of the best games I've played in the last decade.

Was super excited as soon as I saw the sequel, which was immediately dashed by the one-year Epic exclusive.

I am never going to use Epic, it's a matter of principal now. They didn't entice any users by offering them anything personally, they did it by strong-arming everyone. Other people can sell-out to these dirty tactics, but I refuse.

Fuck Epic, and fuck Torn Banner.
