Tripwire Interactive’s Chivalry 2 is out next month but before that, players across various platforms can partake in the open beta. It starts on May 27th and ends June 1st with cross-platform play enabled. To offer some idea on the gameplay, the developer has released a new video.
The presentation takes heavy inspiration from Hollywood films, from the opening speech by one’s commander to having a “story” for each battle. Customization ranges from facial scars and weapon skins to voice over lines and emotes. Various maps are also detailed, starting with Lionspire which sees soldiers battling on the beach, while Rudhelm begins with a siege and trebuchets.
Coxwell is very interesting because it sees one side as the Masons invading a small village and plundering it while the defenders take the role of peasants fighting back. The open beta will be available for PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC next week while the full game launches on June 8th. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
