Chivalry 2 Closed Beta Storms the Castle Starting Today
Chivalry 2 is shaping up to be a grand time on the medieval battlefield. We were recently able to take a stab at a beta version of the upcoming first-person hack and slash game, and we found dispatching our opponents with chickens was more fun than it should've been.
Now, anyone who has pre ordered the game can take part in the Chivalry 2 closed crossplay beta, which runs from April 23 at 10:30 a.m. EST to April 26 at 10:30 p.m. EST. Platforms include PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. The press release accompanying the news mentioned that "beta start/end times may differ on consoles," but there was no specific mention of alternate times.
Fans that haven't yet pre purchased Chivalry 2 but want to get in on the beta can still do so as long as they purchase the game before the closed beta ends.
The closed beta includes a 64-person Team Objective mode and Team Deathmatch. There are four maps, including a never-before-seen castle siege map, and more weapons will be included through the expanded class system, which includes four classes and 12 subclasses.
Aside from killing other folks with chickens and other devastating hand-held weapons, siege weapons will help players lay waste to groups of enemies and take important objectives.
Chivalry 2 is developed by Torn Banner Studios and published by Tripwire Interactive. It will release on June 8 for PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Cross play will be featured between all platforms, and next-gen systems will have a free upgrade path. It's up for pre order now for $39.99.
