'Mordhau' Is Brings Its Visceral Multiplayer Hack & Slash Action To PS5 And Xbox Series X|S Later This Year - Screens & Trailer

Mordhau is a multiplayer medieval first-person fighting game with a strong emphasis on skill-based competitive play and customization.

Create your suit of armor: pick from gloves, arms, shoulders, chest pieces, legs, boots, helmets, and more. Color each piece to your liking and select a metal tint. Be anything from a viking to a crusader, or even a sharpshooting archer.

Mordhau features a deep and fluid combat system that allows those that master it to turn into an unstoppable force on the battlefield. Mordhau's combat system is designed for fights ranging from duels all the way to large open battles of up to 64 players with castles to be stormed, and fields to be covered in blood.

The world around you will come alive, as players will be able to lead calvary charges, experience castle sieges, and operate equipment such as the ballista.  Chain your attacks into combos, punish your opponents with quick counters, push them away with kicks, trick them with feints, grip your polearm closer to the head, use real halfswording techniques -- and much, much more.

Mordhau gives players plenty of creative freedom, as they can create their mercenary, gear, and equipment through endless customization. Smith your sword out of individual pieces: pick from blades, crossguards and grips. Want a mace instead? No problem, pick your head and handle and choose the wood type. There are thousands of possible combinations.


While PC players are no stranger to the battlefields in Mordhau, this will be a clean slate for console players.

Cross-play will only be allowed from console to console.

PC players who own a next-generation console can also enjoy starting their medieval conquest again since the game’s first release in 2019.

Key Features:

  • Massive battles: From small-scale engagements to 64-player all-out war in modes such as Frontline and Invasion.
  • Cooperative & offline play: Fight waves of enemies alongside your friends in the cooperative Horde mode, or practice your skills offline against AI.
  • Free-form melee and ranged combat: Gain complete control over your character and attacks and develop your unique style.
  • In-depth character customization: Sculpt your face, create your weapon from parts, and pick out individual pieces of armor to create the perfect warrior.
  • Huge arsenal of weapons & equipment: Take on enemies with a greatsword, rain arrows from above, or even sit back and build fortifications.
  • Fight anywhere: Experience cavalry charges, fight on ladders, and operate siege engines such as the catapult and ballista.
  • Visceral and gory combat: Feel the impact of every blow, and send limbs flying as you wreak havoc upon your foes. (Blood & gore are optional)
  • Believable fights: A game where fights look believable, Mordhau strikes a balance between gameplay and realism.

Currently available for PC (Steam), Mordhau is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2022.
