Activision has announced that it is bringing Torn Banner Studios’ melee-orientated action game, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The current-gen version features 24-person online multiplayer, over 25 maps, dedicated server support, and a brand-new horde mode for teams of up to six.
“Chivalry: Medieval Warfare makes combat fast, forceful and precise with a deep melee fighting system and the ability to quickly switch between first and third-person perspectives,” the publisher explains. “Lay waste to castles and villages as one of four distinct classes – Knight, Vanguard, Man-at-Arms and Archer – in battles of cold, ruthless steel across a multitude of solo and team-based modes.
“The game includes over 60 period-authentic swords, axes, maces, javelins, bows and more, complemented by a range of armors, helmets and siege weapons, including catapults, ballistae, boiling oil and battering rams.”
Alongside the standard version will be Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Ultimate Edition, which includes the full game, plus the Barbarian Character Pack, Marauding Arbiter Pack, Inquisitive Dreadnaught Bundle and Barbarian Weapon Pack.
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is set to launch December 1st for Xbox One and December 2nd for PlayStation 4.
