"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're a fan of FPS, get this game. If you are fan of medieval stuff, get this game. If you are a fan of both, shouldn't you already own this game? Chivalry is a very fun game to play with good controls and solid mechanics. It's something that's been missing in maelstrom of brown shooters we've been getting this past 5 or so years. It is honestly a breath of fresh air. So if you've got friends definitely, grab it and hop online and have at each other or team up. If don't have friends, well, still do what I said because this is a great FPS.

In a era where Multiplayer First Person Shooters are kings, it’s hard to believe that a game consisting in sword fights and battles between knights would hold up so well in term of quality and popularity. But it is the case! Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a great multiplayer game. Basically, it is similar to any other FPS game, except that it’s set Medieval times. No SMG here, nor grenade. It’s a game of swords, axes and bows. The weapons are really well made. Each one of them has a different feeling and play style and, oh the gory parts are so satisfying! The game is original enough to justify that you buy it. And it’s look good too!
Great combat, somehauntedkiwi | July 22, 2015 | See all hauntedkiwi's reviews »
PRO: Combat, the bulk of the game, is visceral and satisfying. Four basic classes offer great variety in gameplay and style: (1) ranged and vulnerable, (2) quick/little armor/weak damage, (3) fast sprint/medium armor/medium-to-heavy damage, and (4) slow/heavy armor/heavy damage. Realistic damage including full team damage. Weapon choice is usually pretty good no matter what is chosen; each have weaknesses/strengths. Deadliest Warrior DLC offers real variety in gameplay, if you're bored of the main game. CONS: 1st person view mode, while immersive, is tactically weaker than 3rd person. Sometimes one weapon will be just plain worse or better than than others of the same kind. Match variety is just okay. Offense/defense maps aren't very balanced. Deadliest Warrior DLC class versus class matches are, like the show, often unbalanced.

To begin with, i must admit i didn't really get into the game the first time i played it, but as the time passed by i could not avoid spending lots of hours trying to improve and get to a next level. The game offers what many gamers had always dreamed on, epic medieval battles, with original an enjoyable game dynamics and funny dialogues, interesting objectives where every player plays an important role in order to succeed. Customization is not the best but at least you get to personalize a few things (Weapons are all unlockables). Graphics are very nice and the game is well optimized. It is also modable, which is nice due to of the good mods out there. Quite easy to learn (it offers 1st person as well as 3rd person mode!) together with a nice community!. Overall you get to have a great time if you decide to invest some time into it. GL HF

Not many kickstarter games turn out to be good enough for your investment , but Chivalry Bedevil Warfare was totally investing into ,and it's a fresh experience away from all the modern warfare shooters and sci-fi First person Gimmicks that are flooding the gaming market today ,with it's interesting take on melee combat and timed moves,blocks and swings. the battles are absolutely brutal and hectic , you start off the round by choosing your time of weapon depending on your play style , many weapons are available from ranged to extreme close combat , heavy 2 handed swords , bows and daggers, as well as protection like shields, all dispersed in 4 distinct classes (Archer , Man-at-Arms,Knight and Vanguard). the game also has a very gory dismemberment system that depends on the direction of your blows , nothing is more satisfying than seeing your foe's head rolling on the floor after a successful swing with your claymore, Chivalry offers few types of gameplay with differ from objective modes and free for all modes or team death match . map design is key , as the locales are very authentic and beautifully designed and offer a unique look to the game using the Unreal engines capabilities . a very well executed game and blood pumping combat that keeps you on your toes , but it may not be for everyone who;s looking for one button cheap finishers , if you're into hardcore simulators, this is worth checking out.
