Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a realistic action based game that lets players battle each other in medieval combat. The game launched in 2012 and has proven to be a very successful multiplayer experience.
The game is set in medieval times with each map featuring two warring factions. Your experience in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare will mostly be a melee orientated one but does include the standard ranged weapons of the era. Players can jump into the battlefield in either a first or third person perspective depending on their preference and choose from several class options.
There are four different classes in the game with each offering some different equipment choices for players. The archer is the only dedicated range class who relies on his bow and supplements it with a number of small bladed weapons. The other three classes (man at arms, vanguard and knight) are all melee focused offering a variety of movement speeds and weapons with their own attributes.
Game modes that you can participate in are fairly varied in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare with options for free for all death matches, duels, king of the hill, capture the flag and the always popular team death match.
The best game mode on offer in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is the team objectives based game mode which pits the two factions against each other in different scenarios. Scenarios involve charging a fortified castle, pillaging a village or attempting to assassinate the king.
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare does a great job at capturing the brutality of medieval warfare with sounds and locations really bringing the world to life. Fans of other games that focus on a medieval setting will instantly fall in love with the experience.
