There are quite a few titles that are set in the Middle Ages, but most of them are single-player or RPGs (and there’s nothing wrong with that). This idea of a multiplayer of medieval major battles was only put into practice by Torn Banner Studios in 2012 with their Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. Almost a decade later, the studio returns with a new edition, Chivalry 2, a game that takes off the chaotic nature of its predecessor and leads to a multiplayer that will be fun for us every step of the way.
Chivalry 2 is a multiplayer that uses the first person to broadcast total immersion. The game features multiplayer rooms for epic battles, including objective modes such as castle sieges, as well as multiple maps that focus on team duel modes. Chivalry 2 doesn’t have a great campaign or many game modes; it is much more a battlefield in the Middle Ages. What it lacks in the story it makes up for in action-packed combat that leaves you wanting more.
As with all multiplayer games, almost everything Chivalry 2 has to offer is focused on combat. The system created by Torn Banner is easy to understand, has a lot of depth, and offers players many ways to take out enemies. You can block, distract, throw your weapon, attack in different ways (each combined with feints to deceive your opponents), not to mention the different classes with their special abilities, siege weapons and items. The point is, what may seem simple is actually full of possibilities that allow you to approach the fight in a thousand ways.
Speaking of classes, Chivalry 2 has four classes that can be learned and put into combat. Knight, Vanguard and Lacayo They use melee weapons and each one is notable for being a bit more agile or wearing a bit more armor. All three are pretty similar, and only the archer (who wields a bow and arrow and excels at long-range combat, but is more prone to damage) is noticeably different. In addition to a special primary weapon, each class has its own special abilities. For example, the knight can use a trumpet to cheer up and heal allies in the area. The Vanguard class, on the other hand, can fire an explosive oil jar that sets fire to the poor enemies (and allies) it catches in the area where it falls.
Each class can be upgraded to unlock two new sub-classes, each with a new special ability and an alternative way of playing with that class. Aside from Archer, there isn’t much of a difference between the different classes and subclasses, but that’s not a bad thing as it makes the fight more balanced and encourages players to try out all the options.
The fight is a lot of fun and becomes a little challenge. Getting all of the tricks at your disposal can be difficult and the most skilled players will abuse those who are not so used to fighting. However, when you consider that most of the time you are involved in very chaotic battles, fighting side by side with allies, and dealing with waves of sword blows meant to cut your head off, technology is often pushed aside to make way for the purest instinct create. of survival. The fights are very fierce, but that also means that there is no boredom in Chivalry 2.
As a sequel to Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Chivalry 2 isn’t just a battle simulator. The system developed by Torn Banner allows you to transmit emotions and say sentences in the heat of the moment to liven things up, which, instead of adding more realism, often gives the game a comical touch that just makes it a little bit more fun makes it more entertaining.
I think Chivalry 2 is missing some content at the moment. Unlike other shooters like Battlefield, where the weapons have differences that are worth trying, it doesn’t seem very useful here to carry a cutlass into battle and be able to carry a greatsword at the same time: after all, both swords are and almost equal. same weapon. For this reason and due to the fact that the game modes at the moment Mixed modes for 64 and 32 players That forces you to play two ways, I wish there was a little more variety.
Chivalry 2 is a very fun game, but I find that its medieval setting and limited options can make it a little boring over the weeks since it premiered. The title does exactly what it says on the tin and if you are not one of those who jump into battle sword in hand this game is certainly not for you. But if hand-to-hand combat, siege castles, and weird medieval humor are your thing, Chivalry 2 is a great way to experience epic, action-packed battles. But don’t see you in Agatha Blue on the battlefield or we’ll see each other …
