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 and publisher Tripwire Presents announced that Chivalry II will launch on Steam starting June 12, 2022. 

The Steam version of the game will have immediate parity with all other versions, containing all game updates released to date, and the same content as every platform. To celebrate this tremendous occasion, Chivalry 2 players can also look forward to the release of the Tenosian Invasion update across all supported platforms day-and-date with the title’s Steam debut on June 12.

The Chivalry II: Tenosian Invasion update will be the largest and most ambitious content update yet for developer Torn Banner Studios. Players can look forward to a bevy of new content including the introduction of the fierce Tenosian faction, new team objective and team deathmatch maps, armory items, weapon skins, and more. For the first time ever, mounted horseback combat comes to the Chivalry franchise, adding a thrilling new way to battle in the genre-defining first-person slasher. Plus, join friends across platforms with the new Console Server Browser.

Experience these four new maps as part of the thrilling Tenosian Invasion:

  • The Breach of Baudwyn (Team Objective Map): Tenosians break through a Mason Bulwark with siege equipment, including the new explosive Bombards.
  • The Razing of Askandir (Team Objective Map): Masons invade a Tenosian port city, aiming to demolish their lighthouse and burn down their massive library.
  • The Charge of Wardenglade (Team Deathmatch Map): The classic open field, now with cavalry!
  • Desert (Team Deathmatch Map): A battle on the outskirts of Baudwyn in the dark, cold night.

The new, fully-featured mounted combat system makes players feel as if they are fighting atop a thousand-pound beast of war, including the ability to trample their foes, land devastating front or rear horse kicks, unhorse their opponents with a lance and engage in deep melee combat with grounded or mounted combatants.

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 available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (via Epic Games Store) with cross-play support for $39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99.
