Chivalry 2 from Torn Banner Studios and Tripwire is now available on the PlayStation, Xbox, and PC via Epic Games Store. This is the follow-up to the FPS (first-person slasher) Chivalry: Medieval Warfare that first graced your PC screens courtesy of Steam back in 2012. Today's release can be yours for $39.99 (USD) or $49.99 for the Special Edition.

Chivalry 2 boasts a "new and improved" combat system that "combines real-time strikes and a free-flowing combo system to speed up the action and let players become a whirlwind of steel on the battlefield." And if you would rather be a sniping jerk with a bow and arrow, you can do that too. You will be going up against other knights, trying to complete objectives, or just screwing around by catapulting yourself from the battlements.

A launch day trailer, embedded below (maybe, assuming it's not age restricted by YouTube like most everything seems to be these days), showcases the Chivalry 2 launch maps of Escape from Falmire and The Fighting Pit.

Chivalry 2 full release highlights include:
  • Escape from Falmire (New Team Objective Map): Agatha launches a surprise assault on a Mason prison in an attempt to rescue a war hero. Breach the city gates and release the prisoners before a final castle siege and daring rescue mission to free the Agathian Champion.
  • The Fighting Pit (New Team Deathmatch/Free-for-All Map): Unproven warriors from both factions fight to the death in this trap-filled local arena made to entertain the local drunks.
  • Stunning Cinematic Presentation: Massive improvement in visual quality, with an atmosphere that thrusts players into their favorite moments from epic medieval Hollywood action films. Brought to you on the latest and best game engine, Unreal Engine 4.
  • Cross-Play Across All Platforms: Cross-Play smashes the boundaries between PC and console, allowing players to face-off on the battlefield together, regardless of platform.
  • Epic Medieval Environments: Sprawling medieval environments ranging from tournament grounds to epic full-scale castle sieges.
  • Massive Scale: Experience the chaos of epic medieval battlefields as 64 players clash with an intensity meant to capture the large-scale scope of "The Battle of the Bastards" from Game of Thrones.
  • Choose your Fighting Style: Your arsenal expands with the new subclass system that provides more variety than ever before. Four base classes expand to various subclasses, an arsenal of unique weapons each with multiple visual variants, and new support items ranging from oil pots to barricades, supply crates and archer’s stakes.
  • Unleash Hell: Own the field with a variety of heavy siege engines including Ballistae, Catapults, Trebuchet, Battering Rams, Mantlets, Spike Traps, Ladders, and more.
  • Build your Hero: Become a hero and look the part. A detailed customization system adds huge variety: head type, skin tone, head & facial hair + colors, facial imperfections, face paint, nicknames, heraldry, helmets, armor, weapons, and more for millions of possible combinations.
  • Hilarious Roleplay: Expanded Voice Overs and Emotes enable enhanced roleplaying abilities with many new voice characters as well as the return of the original cast and new animated emotes per character to taunt your opponent a second time!
  • Refuse to Die: Keep fighting after losing a limb, being knocked down, disarmed, set on fire, filled with arrows, your shield broken, smothered in blood and still throwing punches from your knees. Bandages, revives and the new downed state allow you to support teammates and stay in the action until you've bled your last drop.
  • Kitchen Sink: Battlefields are littered with dozens of items to interact with. Grab a chicken, set it on fire and throw it; kill a man with his friend's head; improvise a new fighting style with pitchforks – or tomatoes.
