"Like its competition, Chivalry hasn't quite perfected the formula for medieval warfare, but it's a violent, fun time nonetheless." - IGN.com
"This is not a pompous blockbuster, nor a long-term proposition. This is about men hitting each other with swords, and the hitting part works great. Chivalry is a simple pleasure, and a funny game indeed." - Eurogamer.com

CHIVALRY: Medieval Warfare is a first-person slasher with a focus on multi-player. Featuring competitive online combat that seeks to capture the experience of truly being on a medieval battlefield. We've drawn our inspiration from the intensity and epicness of swordfighting movies such as 300, Gladiator and Braveheart and we want to bring that experience to the hands of a gamer.
The game is skill-based and controls like a FPS, but instead of guns and grenades, players are given swords, shields, maces, battleaxes and longbows. Set in a fictional yet gritty and realistic world, players will fight in fast paced online battles besieging castles, raiding medieval villages and fighting for glory in the arena with up to 32 players.
Deep melee combat system provides players with a huge range of responsive combat options
Adjust your attacks and blocks in real time with the mouse for precise and full control of the action
Wield an arsenal of up to 60 brutal weapons ranging from broad swords and battle axes to longbows and javelins
Dynamic objective system brings team tactics and strategy to the forefront as players batter down gates, raid villages and assassinate enemy royalty to achieve victory.
Use a variety of siege weapons ranging from catapults, boiling oil, ballista, battering rams and more
Vast, lush environments that transport the player to a gritty and immersive medieval world.
Offline play options that allow players to gain familiarity with the controls and gameplay before being thrust into the action.

If you shy away from the sight of blood, this game probably isn't for you. However, if you're anyone else, this game is a must-play. Chivalry Medieval Warfare is the standalone version of a popular source mod, and it is a fast paced brutal multiplayer experience. The combat mechanics are fairly easy to learn, and hard to master. The melee combat is some of the best I've seen in a multiplayer game, and the ranged combat is decent as well. The game looks fairly good for an indie game, and it runs fairly well. There is also customization for your warrior, which is a nice touch for those who want to decorate their knight. Chivalry is a great and unique game that is a definite buy.
a great combat simulatormirta000 | May 19, 2014 | See all mirta000's reviews »
This game is a solely multiplayer fighting game, but it's good at what it does. There are several different maps and game modes. Weapons in the game range from ranged, light and heavy and they all feel very different.
The combat is what this game is so awesome for and it's something that you have to experience. It's controlled with your mouse alone, but it's more complex than you could think. Where you swing and whether the enemy counters counts, whether you block and where you block counts, whether you're doing a light or a heavy attack counts. It's very fun to play for that sole reason - you have so much control over your swings that it will be your skill and not your stats that will land you the kill.
I recommend this game to all of the PvP enthusiasts out there!
Lots of Fun, Lots of DepthRiptide0 | April 21, 2014 | See all Riptide0's reviews »
Chivalry is an online multiplayer sword fighting game. The matches are usually 10-32 players in two teams or in free for all.
There's four classes to choose from: archer, man at arms, vanguard and knight. Each has their own set of unlockable weapons and each weapons and each class has a different playstyle.
There's 4 weapons unlocked for each class to start with six more to unlock as you get kills with the various weapons. Learning which weapon suits you best and which class you're best with takes a lot of experimentation and practice to learn how to use each effectively.
The combat system is fairly deep with each weapon having varying speed, length and damage stats as well as different animations, different types of damage and different ways to swing or thrust each weapon. However, while there's a lot to dive into it's easy to just pick up a sword and charge at the opponent swinging for their head and still have a good time so don't let the thought of learning all the different weapons/classes deter you.
There's around ten maps of different sizes as well as workshop maps that are becoming more and more popular. There's at least six game modes like Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, etc as well as a Team Objective based mode which involves attacking or protecting objectives.
If you've ever wanted to storm a castle's walls with a longsword chopping off your enemies' heads as you go while a ballista bolt fires and impales the knight who was running next to you with longbow arrows flying all around you as you try to get to the battering ram to destroy the castle's gate so you can run inside and kill the king, this is the game for you.
Great online multiplayer action!HappyCloud9 | March 28, 2014 | See all HappyCloud9's reviews »
Although the game is still in the beta stages, it is an excellent multiplayer experience. The combat varies depending on what class you pick (Man-At-Arms, Vanguard, Knight, or Archer) all of which feature their own arsenal of primary, secondary, and tertiary weapons. The game is a First Person (Third person is available by pressing "P") online Player vs. Player type game. The combat is similar to The Elder Scrolls series except with more than just hacks and slashes. I recommend this game to anyone willing to have a great online experience.
(P.S: Try the "Black Knight Mode" mod, it adds a hilarious new mode on certain servers in which players can lose their limbs but continue fighting.)
Interesting and Unique CombatFazbott | March 27, 2014 | See all Fazbott's reviews »
This is definitely a great game to get into with some friends. The combat is really interesting and quite different from most first-person games. Imagine Skyrim if the combat wasn't so clunky, then turn it into PVP action. That's kinda what you're getting into here. Stabbing, slashing, slice, and piercing are all in the great fun of this wondrous medieval warfare-alicous game.
