Torn Banner Studios have officially announced a sequel for their medieval melee combat title Chivalry on PC Gaming show on E3 2019. Chivalry 2 will be available first on Epic Games Store and it's scheduled to arrive sometime in 2020.
Today, on PC Gaming Show at E3 2019, Torn Banner Studios, better known as creators of medieval combat game Chivalry: Medieval Warfare have announced Chivalry 2, a sequel to the original from 2012.
Described as a game that aims to "bring players into their favourite medieval movie battle scenes", Chivalry 2 will allow you to siege castles, raid villages and for all the psychos out there - burn "filthy peasants".
Torn Banner Studios also confirmed that the new game will feature first-person melee battles of up to 64 players on a single map, which, the developers hope, will help recreate the experience of true medieval warfare and allow players to relive some of the iconic film and TV series scenes like the one from Game of Thrones Battle of the Bastards episode.
According to the developers, they aim to allow players to fight multiple opponents at the same time, with a fluid combat system that is more accessible than the one in its predecessor. Apparently, the combat system has been completely reworked for Chivalry 2, in order to add more variety and fix exploits that are present in the original.
Furthermore, for the first time in the Chivalry franchise, players will be able to ride horses, so get ready for some spectacular raiding and pillaging with your buddies once the game finally arrives.
Speaking about arriving, Chivalry 2, unfortunately, doesn't have a specific release date but it should drop sometime in 2020. As for the platforms, at the moment, only PC is officially confirmed and the game will arrive first to Epic Games Store.
