Chivalry 2 is out this June, with a closed beta in March – Rock Paper Shotgun

Chivalry 2, a video game about stabbing and being stabbed, will launch on June 8th. This news came by means of today’s Epic Games Store spring showcase, at the end of a video with great deals of stabbing and designers talking about the stabbing.

They do not use the word “stabbing”, however you understand what they indicate:

, a game about being and stabbing stabbed, will release on June 8th. In Chivalry 2, as in all melee multiplayer video games, I will be the man standing at the back of any battle, trying to toss my weapon at another gamer’s head, missing, and then pushing the scream emote until somebody eliminates me. The initial Chivalry: Medieval Warfare was a bit of a cult hit, but this follow up looks to have found out some lessons from more contemporary multiplayer stabfest Mordhau.

In Chivalry 2, as in all melee multiplayer video games, I will be the guy standing at the back of any battle, trying to throw my weapon at another player’s head, missing out on, and then pushing the scream emote up until someone kills me. I’m not great at this.

Ther will be a closed beta for Chivalry 2 from March 26-29. You can sign up at that link for a possibility to get, although the only method to guarantee gain access to is to pre-order by means of the Epic Games Store. (I don’t suggest ever pre-ordering a game.).

The initial Chivalry: Medieval Warfare was a bit of a cult hit, but this sequel aims to have actually discovered some lessons from more modern multiplayer stabfest Mordhau. It’s got more flexible sword controls, and a higher number of ways to bludgeon a male as he shouts at you in a muddy field. It’s likewise got much bigger fights, doubling the player count to 64 gamers on a sever.

Mordhau is a fascinating reference in general. Matt Cox (RPS in peace) loved it, having a grand time with tense swordfights and silly japes, however we were typically uneasy covering it due to racism amongst its neighborhood and its designer’s failure to resolve it. I am positive Chivalry 2 can avoid the exact same issue, and hopeful we may have a new platform for reporting on physics chicanery.

The greatest news from the Epic Games Store display was that the Kingdom Hearts series is concerning PC for the very first time. You can watch the whole display here.
