Pre-orders for Torn Banner Studios’ medieval first-person multiplayer title, Chivalry 2, are now open, with the studio also sharing details on next month’s closed beta.
The closed beta runs from Friday, 23 April - Monday, 26 April and will include cross-play between all platforms. Participating players will be able to compete in “mass-scale combat” with multiplayer matches supporting up to 64 players.
The Siege of Rundhelm map, which will see teams competing for control of a well-fortified castle in Team Objective mode, will be playable for the first time. Meanwhile, smaller modes such as Team Deathmatch and FFA will also be included in the beta.
Torn Banner Studios’ closed beta will also be a chance for the developers to show off the game’s revamped environmental combat system. Players are now able to use a variety of weapons found on the battlefield, from Ballistae, Trebuchets and Battering Rams to flaming chickens and empty mead cups.
Chivalry 2 is out 8 June on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC via the Epic Games Store. The standard edition has an RRP of $39.99/€39.99/£34.99, while the special edition is listed at $49.99/€49.99/£44.99.
