If you’ve ever wanted to be a part of the gritty Medieval clashes that we all love in movies - then we’d encourage you to think that through, because it would have been pretty horrible. However, with the upcoming release of multiplayer first-person slasher Chivalry 2, sequel to the acclaimed Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, wannabe time-travellers can live out the gritty life of a feudal footsoldier from the comfort of their newfangled armchairs. And the best part is there’s not long to wait.

The cross-play enabled title has recently been slated for an 8th June release. But there is a way for keener fans to get their gauntlets on it early through closed beta access. By pre-ordering the standard or special editions of the game, players will guarantee access to the Chivalry 2 closed beta test from 26th to 29th March.

“Our dev team has been firing on all cylinders to create the best medieval combat game imaginable,” said Torn Banner Founder, Steve Piggott. “Chivalry 2 is going to be everything fans of the first title dreamed of and so much more - from a combat system rebuilt from the ground up, to massive upgrades in scale and visuals.”

“We continue to be impressed with the craftsmanship and creativity from our partners at Torn Banner Studios,” said John Gibson, CEO and Co-owner at publisher Tripwire Interactive. “They’ve crafted something very special with Chivalry 2, building the groundwork for a game that will allow players to experience epic medieval battles across all five major gaming platforms for years to come.”

While silver-screen renditions of medieval clashes aren’t particularly realistic (seriously, what’s with the paper-thin plate armour?) it seems that Torn Banner Studios are turning up the fun factor as players are encouraged to weaponize their surroundings. Sure you could cut your way through the battlefield with a two-handed sword like a chump. Or you could wield a flaming chicken instead.

If you can’t wait to get your hands on it for that reason alone (and we don’t blame you) then head over to the official website for more info on the pre-order bonuses that await you.
