Developer Torn Banner Studios and publisher Tripwire Presents have announced that Chivalry 2 has sold over 1 million copies across PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S consoles since its June 8, 2021 release. This news comes in the wake of the House Galencourt update (the first in a planned series of free content updates) which introduced two new maps, a 3v3 mode, the return of the arrow camera feature from the original Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, and over 60 customization options.
“Despite just launching in June, over a million people across five platforms have already played Chivalry 2, which tells us how much more potential the game has to grow,” said Steve Piggott, President of Torn Banner Studios. “We are so happy to have brought Chivalry 2’s unique experience of bloody, epic medieval warfare to so many people - and we’re already hard at work expanding the game much, much more.”
"Today we're thrilled to celebrate the amazing milestone of Chivalry 2 selling over one million units in less than two months!" said John Gibson, Tripwire CEO. "We've been blown away by the response from players and critics alike, and the team is already hard at work on more great free content and adding highly requested features such as cross-platform parties."
As you can see, so far Chivalry 2's players have combined for over 8 million hours of playtime. Interestingly, over 420 million players have died in battle, which of course is extremely dank. The most popular sub-class is the Officer and the most popular weapon is the Messer, which should surprise no one if you've ever played Chivalry before.
For those who are interested in seeing if chivalry is really dead, you can check out the game on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S consoles for $49.99. For PC players the game is only out on Epic Games Store right now, so you'll have to wait until next June for the Steam release.
