chivalry 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the original Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, has officially launched worldwide on Xbox and PC. Like its predecessor, Chivalry 2 is a fighting game where players engage in deadly and brutal melee combat on fantastic medieval battlefields (there are also archers in the mix). Combat in Chivalry 2 is a deadly game of counters where players must use slashes, punches, parries, kicks, dodges and more to outsmart and take down their opponents in both duels and large-scale team battles. There are four different classes to choose from and subclasses for each that allow players to fine-tune their strengths and weaknesses, although it’s important to note that players’ skills are much more important than class attributes in combat.
In my Chivalry 2 example, I said that the game’s rich combat system, excellent presentation, and good performance gave it the potential to be one of the best Xbox games in this genre in years. Only time will tell if the full game is as awesome as the previous build I played suggested it would be, but since it seems like little has changed since then my expectations are high. Keep an eye out for my review in the near future.
