If you're a Chivalry fan, you'll have a lot to be excited about with the Chivalry 2: House Aberfell update that's launching today. The Chivalry 2: House Aberfell update will add a team objective map, playable druids, peasant kidnapping, and... bees. Yes, you heard me correctly. I'm sure somewhere Nicolas Cage is recoiling in fear somewhere. The new map is for 64 players, and it will have teams attacking and defending over a sprawling map that has Agatha Knights invading the birth land of the Mason Order's King Malric. Players will sack the village, destroy the Mason Order's towering obelisks, and purge the heretical druids from the land.
The aforementioned druids are playable characters that will be defending the ancient stones of the Mason Order. They will be armed with powerful staff melee weapons and to play them players will need to be among the top scorers on their team. Druids will appear in a bunch of different helmets that include Goat, Wild Pig, Deer, and Eagle.
“On behalf of everyone at Torn Banner Studios, I’d like to thank the Chivalry 2 player base,” said Torn Banner Studios CEO & Creative Director Steve Piggott. “We are blown away by the positive reception since launch and Chivalry 2 would not be regarded as one of the best multiplayer games of 2021 without your support. Since our 2021 launch, we’ve added new 64-player Team Objective maps, Arena and Brawl modes, and so much more. This is still the beginning and Torn Banner Studios remains committed to continue increasing the size and scope of Chivalry 2 this year.”
While players are sacking the village at Aberfell, players will be stealing pigs by carrying them out on their shoulders. While their doing that they'll also have to deal with weaponized bees, which I'm told will leave quite the sting. The Highland Sword is a new weapon being added, a massive blade that will have new animations, weapon values, and special attack. The Vanguard class will have new Giant Claymore and Executioner sword skins.
New Armory items include the Agatha Gallowglass Armor and Mason Clan Armor, War Club, Shepherd Staff Skin, Falchion, Chopper Skin, Messer, Dacian Sword Skin, Great Sword, Claymore Skin, 10 new face paints, and more.
Chivalry 2 is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC (via Epic Games Store and is 33% off for 24 hours). A Steam release will hopefully be releasing sometime this summer.
