Return To The Age Of Dysentery with Chivalry: Battle For Agatha

The Holy Hand Grenade Not Pictured

Team Chivalry, the group behind the Half-Life 2 conversion Age Of Chivalry today announced a major expansion to the medieval combat mod. Entitled “Chivalry: Battle For Agatha“, the intent is to recreate the scope and tone of Hollywood blockbusters set in the land before hygiene, AKA the Middle Ages.¬†Taking place¬†in the fictional nation of “Agatha”, players will select from one of two factions – “Agathian Knights” and the “Mason Order” – and fight to the bloody death for control of all the land.

If the official statement holds, gameplay sounds quick, easy and action-packed. Players immediately pick from several available classes such as archers, knights, support, each with its own class-specific weapons. Combat sounds like a blast too – evasive tactics, precision strikes, blocks etc. There’s also siege warfare, (ye olde) urban combat, support for up to 40 players at a time, and of course, the thrill of knowing your defeated enemies will almost certainly die from infection caused by poor medical technology.

Unfortunately for those of you with limited medieval-themed purchasing budgets, it’s a commercial release only. No word yet on cost or the release date, but it sounds like a lot of fun. We’ll leave you with the trailer – it’s sparse, but the the in-game footage looks pretty good, if stilted, even at this developmental stage.
