Take the first-person multiplayer melee murders of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, sprinkle on some wizards, and shamwow! you’ve got Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site]. The magical follow-up will launch on May 23rd, developers Torn Banner announced today.

“I know what wizards are but what’s this Chivalry you’re on about?” you ask. “Swabbing puddles with cloaks and holding doors open for horses and…? Is this a game?”

Well, chummo, you can see for yourself as Chivalry will briefly be given away free for keepsies, starting later today. Read the rest of this entry »

Mirage: Arcane Warfare spells out closed beta plans

The swords and spells of Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site] will be swingable and castable in a closed beta starting March 27, available to all pre-order peons. In case you didn’t know (you fool) it’s pitched as Chivalry with magicians. The same developers of the medieval stab-em-up have added splurts of colour and silliness to their sword-fighting mechanics to make a multiplayer combat game where not only do you need to guard incoming mace blows, you also need to watch out for spells.

Have You Played… Chivalry: Medieval Warfare?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Torn Banner’s Chivalry is probably the funniest multiplayer game I’ve ever played. It shouldn’t be. The game’s depiction of feudal swordplay is ferociously violent, a montage of amputations, decapitations and eviscerations that would make Vlad the Impaler feel a bit peaky. Opponent’s shriek in agony when separated from their limbs and gurgle bloodily when a well-shot arrow thuds into their ribcage. There’s even an objective based map where the first task is to slaughter a village filled with peasants and burn all their homes.

Over $57 Million Paid Out To Steam Workshop Creators

It's the Steam logo.

$57 million US is a lot of money. So’s $58 million, but I mention $57m specifically because that’s how much Valve have paid out since 2011 to folks who made and sold in-game items for their games. It’s over $57 million dollars from hats, knives, guns, staves, and swords across TF2, Dota 2, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. And those last two games only sell cosmetic items. And that’s after Valve have taken their cut. Crumbs!

Now non-Valve games can join in. The first games opening up a ‘curated’ Steam Workshop bringing items to sale are Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and Dungeon Defenders Eternity.

Chivalry Expansion Dated, Free Weekend On Steam


If you like your videogames to include beheadings, or just to have a sheen of medieval multiplayer blood-letting, then you could do far worse than a game of Chivalry, the Kickstarted-formerly-a-mod game from Torn Banner. Those handsome devils have had quite the hit on their hands, and seek to capitalise on it with an expansion called Deadliest Warrior. Sounds a bit like reality TV, yes, but actually it’s a sort of time-and-space spanning archaic warrior toolkit, with “five new warrior classes from different lands and times, unique weapons, combat techniques, game modes, customization options, and themed battlegrounds”. Sounds hairy, and it will come out swinging on November 14th, with a closed beta for pre-orderers happening from today.

More provocatively, perhaps, there’s a free weekend for the original on Steam right now.
