News Trailers Xbox One

It hardly seems real that I reviewed Chivalry: Medieval Warfare on the Xbox 360 nearly a year ago. It’s fair to say that I wasn’t that impressed with it’s initial release.

Having been picked up by Activision Publishing, Torn Banner have announced that Chivalry: Medieval Warfare will hit the Xbox One console on the 1st of December.

So, will this be any different to the initial 360 release, or has it simply been ported straight over?

Well, the One release will feature up to 24-person online multiplayer across 25 maps. It will have dedicated server support and a new Horde Mode for teams of up to six.

Also launching on the 1st of December will be the Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Ultimate Edition. This will include the full game, plus the Barbarian Character Pack, Marauding Arbiter Pack, Inquisitive Dreadnought Bundle and the Barbarian Weapon Pack.

That’s quite an arsenal and each of the packs and bundles above will also be available as separate DLC on release.

Pre-orders are expected to start on the 25th of November for the Ultimate Edition.

The essence of the game is the same as the original release. You play as one of four classes; Knight, Vanguard, Man-At-Arms and Archer. Each of these have their own attributes and weaknesses.

Here’s the launch trailer, as ever, you decide.
