Besiege castles and raid villages in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, a fast-paced medieval FPS (Slasher with a Multi-player online focus)

THANKS TO YOUR SUPPORT WE HAVE REACHED OUR FUNDING GOAL OF $50,000, with 10 days to go! 

Every one of us here at Torn Banner Studios is so grateful and excited to see this level of support from the community and we cannot wait to get this game into your hands! To celebrate the success of our Kickstarter we wanted to announce that we are doing a Q&A Video, taking your questions over the next 3 days and answering them in video format as an update.

Thank you for helping us work towards our dream. 

Stretch Goals

We'd also like to take some time to announce our Stretch Goals, with 10 days left to go we are excited to see how far we can expand the game with your help! Please be aware that because we are in the finishing stages of Chivalry these stretch goals if reached might not be instantly available at launch (as they represent a lot of work!) but we will do our best to get them to you as soon as possible!

WHAT IS CHIVALRY: MEDIEVAL WARFARE?

CHIVALRY: Medieval Warfare is a first-person slasher with a focus on multi-player. Featuring competitive online combat that seeks to capture the experience of truly being on a medieval battlefield. We've drawn our inspiration from the intensity and epicness of swordfighting movies such as 300, Gladiator and Braveheart and we want to bring that experience to the hands of a gamer.

The game is skill-based and controls like a FPS, but instead of guns and grenades, players are given swords, shields, maces, battleaxes and longbows. Set in a fictional yet gritty and realistic world, players will fight in fast paced online battles besieging castles, raiding medieval villages and fighting for glory in the arena with up to 32 players.

We made a video explaining the game in more detail:

Features List: 

- Deep melee combat system provides players with a huge range of responsive combat options

- Adjust your attacks and blocks in real time with the mouse for precise and full control of the action

- Wield an arsenal of up to 60 brutal weapons ranging from broad swords and battle axes to longbows and javelins

- Dynamic objective system brings team tactics and strategy to the forefront as players batter down gates, raid villages and assassinate enemy royalty to achieve victory.

- Use a variety of siege weapons ranging from catapults, boiling oil, ballista, battering rams and more

- Vast, lush environments that transport the player to a gritty and immersive medieval world.

- Offline play options that allow players to gain familiarity with the controls and gameplay before being thrust into the action.

Why Kickstarter?

For us, Kickstarter represents several awesome opportunities, making it a win win situation for current or new fans of the game and the development team.

- Because kickstarter fees are less than those from traditional online distributors, we are actually able to offer the game for cheaper, while the developers make roughly the same amount. So it allows our fanbase to pick up the game at a reduced price and in doing so more directly support us, the developers of the game. 

- Kickstarter is also an excellent way for us to allow preorders for the game, something we were unlikely to be able to do otherwise due to "redtape" and regulations with many online distributors. 

- Kickstarter in itself is a great marketing opportunity for exposure with the game.

- Kickstarter allows us to offer players a variety of additional products based around the game such as t-shirts, posters and custom art.

- Paying off Debt and loans, when we said many team members had given up everything to do this, we meant it. The development team has personally dug deep into its own pockets over the past two years and put a lot on the line to make this happen because for us it is a labour of love.

FAQ

  • PC is the only confirmed platform

    We are currently looking into the possibility of a Mac version of Chivalry, so at this time we cannot fully confirm it will be available on Mac, though we would certainly like it to be. If you are only able to play if it is on Mac then we recommend you wait to pledge until we can clarify fully that we can or cannot support Mac. Hopefully we will know in a few weeks, before the project closes. Linux is not possible to support because it is not supported by the unreal 3 engine which Chivalry runs on.

    Last updated:

    Last updated:
  • The Beta will begin the day after our KS ends, if we are successfully funded! This means you can play Chivalry September 16th if you are pledged at the $50 or higher level!

    Last updated:
  • The game will not include a full-blown single-player campaign. That being said there are options for offline play such as training and the ability to play against competent AI opponents in all of the same modes and maps as the MP game.

    Last updated:
  • No, we have decided to focus our attention on delivering the highest quality foot-based melee combat because we believe that no commercial product has done this successfully yet. The game also has a strong focus on siege warfare and horses would not fit in the maps as designed.

    Last updated:
  • Yes we come from a modding background and would love to be able to support modding of Chivalry. This will not be fully available on launch but we are hoping to be able to launch an SDK to allow users to create their own maps, modes and models.
