Chivalry Is Not Dead
The follow-up to Torn Banner Studios’ Chivalry: Medieval Warfare was meant to be a PS5 launch title. However, when the PS5 came out, the cavalry was nowhere to be found. It had been delayed to an unspecified date. Earlier this week, that date has been specified, along with some other details. First up, a closed beta. Players who pre-order Chivalry 2 on PC will get guaranteed access to the closed beta, which will take place between March 26th and 29th. Other PC players wanting to play the beta will be subjected to a lottery and waitlist.
Playing the beta will also award you an exclusive weapon variant in the full game called the Royal Zweihander. Torn Banner Studios says that pre-ordering the PC version will allow guaranteed access to the cross-play closed beta, though it is unclear if the beta will be on the other platforms the game is expected to release with. Pre-order options on the PC include the Standard Edition and the Special Edition, which comes with two exclusive sets of armor and an exclusive weapon for each of them. Pre-ordering either editions give access to the beta.
After the beta concludes, Chivalry 2 is expected to launch on June 8th. Hopefully, Torn Banner Studios’ plan for cross-play at launch will take off. Chivalry 2 will be coming out on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
