Chivalry II is a multiplayer first-person slasher inspired by epic medieval movie battles where players experience the thrill of combat in massive 64-player battlefields.

Chivalry II is a multiplayer first-person slasher inspired by epic medieval movie battles. Players are thrust into the action of every iconic moment of the era –from clashing swords, to storms of flaming arrows, sprawling castle sieges, and more. Dominate massive battlefields while catapults tear the earth apart as players lay siege to castles, set fire to villages, and slaughter filthy peasants in the return of Team Objective maps.

Improving on the original genre-defining Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Chivalry II invites players to master the blade with an all-new and improved combat system that combines real-time strikes and a free-flowing combo system to speed up the action and let players become a whirlwind of steel on the battlefield.

Created with the ability to fight multiple foes in mind, Chivalry II’s combat mixes the best of both FPS and fighting game genres for an unmatched melee experience.


Developer Torn Banner Studios, publisher Tripwire Presents, and global retail publishing partner Deep Silver welcome players to the Chivalry II Cross-Play Closed Beta.

Starting today, Friday, April 23 at 10:30am EDT and running through Monday, April 26 at 10:30pm EDT, players can experience the ultimate medieval battlefield with Cross-Play enabled across all major gaming platforms, including PC (via Epic Games Store), PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

All digital pre-orders for both console and PC (via Epic Games Store) include guaranteed access to this weekend’s Chivalry II Cross-Play Closed Beta. On all platforms, the Closed Beta will be instantly available if you pre-order before or during the Closed Beta weekend - just search for the application on your platform’s store and download it immediately, no key required!

Visit the official website to pre-order Chivalry II standard edition (MSRP $39.99, €39.99, £34.99) and special edition (MRSP $49.99, €49.99, £44.99), both available on all platforms. Chivalry II also supports free upgrades from current-gen versions when you upgrade to a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S system.

Chivalry II Cross-Play Closed Beta content includes: 

  • Cross-Play: Cross-Play smashes the boundaries between PC and console, allowing players on all platforms to face-off on the battlefield together.
  • New map – The Siege of Rudhelm: In the first public hands-on of Chivalry II since PAX East 2020, experience the return of the fan-favorite Team Objective mode and join attacking or defending teams as 64-players vie for control of a well-fortified castle in a never-before-seen map.
  • More modes: In addition to an additional massive Team Objective map called The Fall of Lionspire, closed beta participants can also sharpen their skills in Team Deathmatch maps The Battle of Wardenglade and Tournament Grounds.
  • Massive scale: 64 players in sprawling, multi-stage Team Objective maps, complete with epic castle sieges, forest ambushes and good old medieval pillaging.
  • Subclass system: Your arsenal expands with the new subclass system that provides more variety than ever before. Four base classes expand to 12 subclasses, including the Skirmisher, a melee/ranged hybrid – to the Poleman, a fighter who keeps foes at bay with long-distance melee. 
  • Win with any weapon: Own the field with a variety of heavy siege engines including Ballistae, Catapults, Trebuchet, Battering Rams, Mantlets, Spike Traps, Ladders and more. Utilize traps to defend, including spikes, bear traps, and more. You can even deal damage with a smorgasbord of “found items” on the battlefield. Try downing a cup of mead and deal a killing blow with the empty chalice or finish off a foe by smashing him in the face with a flaming chicken! 

Chivalry II also supports free cross-generational upgrades from current-gen versions when you upgrade to a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S system.

Key Features:

  • Cross-Play Across All Platforms: Mass-scale battles call for epic battlefields. The inclusion of Cross-Play across all versions smashes the boundaries between PC and console gamers, and allows players to face off on the battlefield together, regardless of platform.
  • Stunning Cinematic Presentation: Massive improvement in visual quality, with an atmosphere that thrusts players into their favorite moments from epic medieval Hollywood action films. Brought to you on the latest and best game engine, Unreal Engine 4.
  • Epic Medieval Environments: Sprawling medieval environments ranging from tournament grounds to epic full-scale castle sieges.
  • Massive Scale: Experience the chaos of epic medieval battlefields and battle through mass-scale combat meant to capture the intensity and scope of "The Battle of the Bastards" from Game of Thrones.
  • Choose your Fighting Style: Your arsenal expands with the new subclass system that provides more variety than ever before. Four base classes expand to various subclasses, an arsenal of unique weapons each with multiple visual variants, and new support items ranging from oil pots to barricades, supply crates and archer’s stakes.
  • Unleash Hell: Own the field with a variety of heavy siege engines including Ballistae, Catapults, Trebuchet, Battering Rams, Mantlets, Spike Traps, Ladders and more.
  • Build your hero: Become a hero and look the part. A detailed customization system adds huge variety: head type, skin tone, head & facial hair + colors, facial imperfections, face paint, nicknames, heraldry, helmets, armor, weapons, and more for millions of possible combinations.
  • Refuse to Die: Keep fighting after losing a limb, being knocked down, disarmed, set on fire, filled with arrows, your shield broken, smothered in blood and still throwing punches from your knees. Bandages, revives and the new downed state allow you to support teammates and stay in the action until you've bled your last drop.

Chivalry II is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (via Epic Games Store) on June 8, 2021 with cross-play support.
