The timed Epic exclusive gallops its way onto Steam.
Chivalry2 key art Tenosian Invasion

Torn Banner Studios and Tripwire Presents released Chivalry 2 this past Sunday on Steam. This new release on the Steam platform comes with a 40% discount and it was also released alongside the new (and free) Tenosian Invasion update. That 40% discount means that Chivalry 2 on Steam is just under $25 (USD) until July 7.

Before we get into news about that new content update, it's worth mentioning here that transfers from the Epic Games Store version of Chivalry 2 to Steam will be added in the next update (2.6) set to arrive this summer. That update will also add in crossparty support.

The new Tenosian Invasion update is being billed as "the largest and most ambitious content update yet" from Torn Banner Studios. This update adds in an entirely new faction, Tenosian, new Team Objective and Team Deathmatch maps, Armory items, weapon skins, and more.

Mounted horseback combat was also added for the first time in this update. This marks the first time that mounted combat has ever been in the Chivalry franchise that now spans a total of... two games. Still, that's a pretty cool addition.

Those of you on consoles can now enjoy the new Console Server Browser. This update is out now for everyone that owns the game on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox.

Chivalry 2: Tenosian Invasion Update Key Features:

Mounted Combat: The new, fully featured mounted combat system makes players feel like they are fighting atop a thousand-pound beast of war, including the ability to trample your foes, land devastating front or rear horse kicks, unhorse your opponent with a lance and engage in deep melee combat with grounded or mounted opponents. In select Team Objective maps, attacking and defending teams can ‘Join the Calvary’ during key moments, allowing them to spawn alongside teammates on horseback to rally towards an objective.

Tenosian Faction: New maps and scenarios are set in Tenosia. These strange lands to the south have hovered as a looming threat over the kingdom of Agatha. Now, the serpent empire emerges from the shadows, intent on sinking its fangs into the barbarous lands of the north. A wide array of customization additions comes with the introduction of the Tenosian faction, including new visual and audio differences in armor, helmet, weapon skins, and heraldry with brand-new voice over work and more!

New Maps: The new mounted combat system will be featured in the following maps included with the Tenosian Invasion update, with plans to incorporate mounted combat into additional classic Chivalry 2 maps moving forward.
  • The Breach of Baudwyn (Team Objective Map): Tenosians break through a Mason Bulwark with siege equipment, including new explosive Bombards.
  • The Razing of Askandir (Team Objective Map): Masons invade a Tenosian port city, aiming to demolish their lighthouse and burn down their massive library.
  • Desert (Team Deathmatch Map): A battle on the outskirts of Baudwyn in the dark, cold night.
  • The Charge of Wardenglade (Team Deathmatch Map): The classic open field of Wardenglade, now with horses!
New Armory Items: An array of customization options will focus on the new Tenosia faction, including real-world inspired armor sets and helmets such as the Masked Aswaran, as well as shields like the Dipylon and Sparabara.

Steam Exclusives: Steam players can look forward to a set of exclusive armory items for each faction, including the Tenosia Beard Helm, Agatha Lion Helm, and Mason Eagle Helm. Steam players who also own the original Chivalry: Medieval Warfare will also receive an exclusive Horned Helmet.

Console Server Browser: The Console Server Browser will launch with the Tenosian Invasion update with plans for cross-platform party functionally to follow at a later date.

In addition to today's exciting launch news, Tripwire Presents also announced that Chivalry 2 would be coming to Game Pass on console and PC before the end of the year.
