Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Gets Its First Big Content Expansion, Includes New Modes, Weapons, Maps
Torn Banner’s Chivalry: Medieval Warfare was released at the same time as Paradox’s War of the Roses, but its visceral combat and the ability to shout warcries in the heat of battle made it a clear victor over its medieval-themed rival.
Today, Chivalry sees the release of its first ever free content pack, which adds a ton of new features into the game along with a host of gameplay content, including a dozen new maps for players to do battle. These include three large maps: Citadel, Frigid, and Argon’s Wall, and 10 dueling arenas. Each of these new maps comes with a host of death traps that you can use to kill unwary opponents.
The content pack also adds Capture the Flag and Duel Mode. CTF is pretty self-explanatory, while Duel Mode allows two players to go against each other in one-on-one grudge matches.
Five new weapons: the sling, quarterstaff, pole hammer, flail, and heavy flail, have been added to the game’s growing armory. As the trailer depicts, there’s nothing more enjoyable than flailing someone’s head off. Likewise, every other weapon in the game has been given alternate swing animations for more versatility in combat.
To top things off, the game has been patched to allow you to control how long the corpses of your opponents and their blood stays in the game. If you have a powerful graphics card, you can literally litter the game with their corpses and marvel at your handiwork.
