"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.
Gruesome and brilliant!Spenk | May 22, 2013 | See all Spenk's reviews »
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a first person (can be switched to third person) all-out brawl that offers a variety of classes and weapons that can keep you entertained for many hours and is great fun solo or with friends. For the price I can wholeheartedly recommend this to any lover of fans of first person melee combat or the medieval era. The only gripes I would say (and i'm clutching for straws) is that some of the weapons feel rather similar, a lack of customisation for your knight and the graphics are rather average, But none of these detract from the experience of the game. GO BUY!
Great game, good funsignox | May 20, 2013 | See all signox's reviews »
This is a excellent game, you will get a lot of blood and fun playing this game. From the crossbow to the 2 hands swords, there is weapons for all style. Also, the different type of game mode will allow everybody to play like they want and have fun. Plus, the class are well balanced. The big problem with this game is the servers, it is sometime hard to find a good server with a good ping, but once your are in the server, you get a lot of fun. Also, in every server, anybody can call a vote, this is awesome because the hackers (never find one yet, but we never know) and the idiot who team kill for fun will be kick in a matter of minutes. So, in general, this game is exactly like a call of duty game, but medieval style, multiplayer focus, always the same maps and weapons but style fun and different every game. Hours of fun for sure and if you have friends to play with you, it is funnier because team play is important
Hardcore and gore, like Middle Age certainly wasccccp | May 19, 2013 | See all ccccp's reviews »
It is beautiful without being beautiful, there are still bugs lurking ... but sounds very good and especially make it a KILLER GAME literally! Both nag, gore and technique. It's a little hard to get to the gameplay at the beginning and you have to be willing to suffer (and die elsewhere) a while, but once mastered about we realize that we can not let go !
Despite its flaws this game is packed with fun. But after adding (already planned) new content (maps, weapons ...) and fixing bugs, Chivalry might deserve a good 90 !
However,this style of game is a little bit different and is not suitable for all types of players:

This is by far one of the best, if not the best, melee fighting game of all time. Chopping limbs has never been this satisfying!
There are different game modes to keep you busy. Ofcource there's the classics; TDM, DM and CTF. Those are not the only ones though! King of the hill, last man standing and 1on1. Every map has their own set of gametypes and depending on which side you're on, you'll ofcource get different objectives.
Grab a couple of friend, get on your favorite VOIP-program and get ready to have a blast!

This game really has a visceral heavy feeling of combat. Every swing matters and dodging, blocking and good strategy matter even more. You must get into the mind set of a medieval warrior in order to survive and slaughter.
If you are a fan of D&D, Deadliest Warrior, Conan, etc then you will absolutely love this game. The game modes are fun and interesting; they are not just boring team deathmatch or capture the flag modes, you actually have escort and objective based missions to complete for the win.
I can't get enough of Chivalry and I am absolutely glad I purchased this game.
