Finally pick up your sword and ax again: Chivalry 2 will be released this year
Put on armor, grab your sword and pack a chicken to be on the safe side: Chivalry 2 is on the home stretch. In a new developer diary including new game scenes, Globe Live Media will reveal an exact release date for the multiplayer sword fighting game and provide initial information about the upcoming closed beta.
Release: When will Chivalry 2 be released?
If everything goes according to plan, Chivalry 2 will be released on 8 June for the PC, PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S. On the PC, the medieval multiplayer game will be released exclusively through the Epic Games Store.
Crossplay support: Right from the start, Chivalry 2 will offer crossplay between all five platforms so that nothing stands in the way of battles with up to 64 players.
When does the beta start?
There will be a closed beta on all platforms before the release in June. The test phase will take place from March 26-29, 2021.
Only players who pre-order either the Standard Version or the Special Edition of Chivalry 2 can participate. A free beta has not been announced at the moment.
There is no information about the content of the beta yet. However, these should already follow in the next few weeks.
What can you expect in Chivalry 2?
The sequel to Chivalry: Medieval Warfare consistently continues the chosen path. The focus is on large and chaotic multiplayer battles. With sword, ax, bow or any other weapon you can engage in dynamic battles, which however do not claim to be a complex sword fighting simulation.
Realism is not the goal for the developers anyway. Instead, they are based on epic medieval films and combine it with black humor in the sense of Monty Python. If you are about to lose a duel, you can, for example, throw a chicken in the face of your opponent. This is guaranteed to lighten the mood, as the time of the rides around castles is actually a rather gloomy scenario, as you can read in our report on the fascination of the medieval setting.
In addition to an increased number of players (from 32 to 64 players), Chivalry 2 also features horses for the first time. In addition, the developers promise more precise control and no turning back when depicting violence. Severed heads are therefore the order of the day.
