Big Mordhau update throws open the gates of Castello, a new map

With its latest update, Mordhau has opened up a whole new castle for us to run around sticking swords into people. It's good, based on the ten minutes I've spent being cut to pieces so far, but that's not all that's new. The Mountain's Peak map has been expanded, ranked duels have left beta, there are new cosmetics, and the combat's been tightened up in…

Mordhau players are playing cricket with shields for balls and I love them

You never know what you're going to see on a Mordhau duel server. People dress as Shreks and gnomes. Others hold up their arms in eternal 'come at me' gestures, constantly braying rather than fighting. I once joined a server where everyone wielded lightsabers and force-jumps. It's a weird frontier.Sadly, I have never hopped into a server full of people playing cricket using shields as…

I played Toss A Coin To Your Witcher at Mordhau players and they hated me

I have no doubt that "Toss A Coin To Your Witcher", the hit song from the Netflix Witcher series, is destined for greatness. It's got 11 million views on YouTube. Children are chanting it in the street. The music industry is reeling. Before I came along, though, nobody had grabbed a lute and played the song at impoverished Mordhau players. I expected adoration, and that…

Hundreds of hours were poured into this Mordhau in-game fan film

There is drama within every Mordhau battle, but most of them don't feature betrayal, family, and boisterous pub goers. All are prominent in the latest work from "Frost The Canadian", a film maker dedicated to creating in-game epics with stupid sword boys. It's machinima, except better than usual because you know everyone you see is a real person making use of Mordhau's daft voice lines…

This Mordhau mod will let you whack players with lutes to form bands

For as long as Mordhau's had lutes, its had people willing to play them in the midst of war. Bards are a common site on battlefields, uniting friend and foe through instruments that can play proper notes and everything. It's taboo to touch them.With a lute equipped, you can mangle out a tune by waggling your mouse up and down - but you can also…

Competition is wild, joyous and fulfilling – except when it isn’t

I've always been drawn to competitive videogames. It's not hard to see why. They're the best kind. Competition can be exciting, rich, varied. It gets you interacting with people, pitting your abilities against thinking, improvising, engaged and pivotally human opponents. A competitive context can be both a wonderful generator of interesting decisions, and a platform for genuine connection. I believe in and value these things…

Mordhau adds a new mode and more importantly, pubs

I still play Mordhau almost every night. People are far too good at it nowadays, but thanks to Tuesday night's update I can now take refuge in a pub. Full modding support is still a ways out, say developers Triternion, but you can now automatically download the maps people have managed to make just by jumping into a server that's running them. I'm delighted to…

Games like Fortnite – the best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale, I think it's fair to say, is the standout title of the decade-old battle royale game genre. Not since Minecraft have we seen a game enter the mainstream in this way - but that doesn't mean Fortnite is the only battle royale out there that's worth playing. We'll go over just a few of the very best battle royale games like Fortnite…

Mordhau to get more maps and maybe modding

War often changes, as slapstick peasant-bothering stabfest Mordhau proves. Developers Triternion have announced details about what players can expect in the near future of the (mostly) melee fighting simulator, including ranked play, new maps, and a reduction in the undeserved powers of horse-riding cowards. The much-requested mod support is still only a maybe.

Feature: Our favourites thus far

Our favourite games of 2019 so far

Summer. The heat age. Scorch season. Spring's hangover. It's the mid-point of the year and you know what that means. No, not "mojito time", Geoff, put those away. It's time we told you what the best games of the year are so far. There are quite a lot of them. Just look how many videogames have escaped from their developers in the past six months…

Mordhau dev statement clarifies ‘no plan’ for character filter, say artists “were ill-informed”

Mordhau developers Triternion have released an official statement responding to the claims they planned to introduce a toggle to hide women and non-white characters from their medieval murderfest. Those claims, I should say, were made by Triternion themselves, in an interview between two of the company's artists and PC Gamer. The official statement says that they never had plans for a toggle on non-white characters,…

Mordhau devs deny plan for toggle to hide women and non-white characters, after telling people of that exact plan

Mordhau's developers Triternion have denied on Twitter that they ever "had plans to add a toggle to hide other ethnicities or 'disable characters that aren’t white'" in their hacky-stabby medieval multiplayer game. This is bold, given that they previously told PC Gamer explicitly that a plan to add such a toggle was their "current thinking." Let's unpick this mess.

This man is mesmerisingly good at Mordhau

If you've ever watched a professional fencing match, you'll know they kind of suck. People move too thin swords too quickly, becoming blurs that only a few can parse. You expect duels to look like sword fights in movies, forgetting that movies don't largely consist of downtime and headaches over who's even winning. Pretend swordsmen have the edge. Pretend swordsmen get to take on five…

Mordhau Battle Royale tips – how to consistently win Mordhau’s Battle Royale matches

So Mordhau has a Battle Royale mode, because of course it does. I've only recently come round to trying it out, because the servers (at least in Europe) were always pretty janky. But in the last few weeks I've been playing it rather religiously, and y'know what? If you haven't given BR as much thought as the other modes like Frontline or Skirmish up until…

Mordhau game modes – explanations and tips for Frontline, Skirmish, Horde, and Duel Servers

I spent a great many dozens of hours figuring out how to play Mordhau before I first tried Horde Mode. I'd got to the point where I would consistently rank at the top of the leaderboards on Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Duel servers... but when I first played Horde, I was completely lost. I died on Wave 4, after being pinned against a stone wall with…

I'm declaring it: this is the Worst Week Ever for Steam Charts. And let's face it - this is entirely your fault. If you were a better person, you'd buy better games. But instead you buy the same eight bloody games every bloody week, and then buy a game that isn't even out for over a year. A YEAR! You are awful, and you do…

Mordhau weapons guide [Patch #7] – full weapon stats, best weapons in Mordhau

Oh dear god, I've got so much work to do updating this Mordhau weapons guide. For those unaware, Patch #7 of Mordhau has released, bringing with it not only two entirely new weapons (the Javelin and the Heavy Handaxe) but also a huge amount of minor stat changes and balance tweaks to Mordhau's expansive weapons arsenal. Some damage values have literally been increased or decreased…
