E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Chivalry 2 getting back to old-fashioned fisticuffs

The first-person melee murders of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare will resume next year in Chivalry 2, a sequel announced today by developers Torn Banner Studios. After dabbling in magic with Mirage: Arcane Warfare, which flopped pretty hard, Torn Banner are returning to good, old-fashioned whacking folks in the face with pointy metal. Out with the magic carpets and in with horses. Fewer fireballs, more facestabs. Have…

Mirage: Arcane Warfare pulled from sale due to GDPR

With the European Union's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect today, hopefully spelling an end to e-mails from companies begging me to stay subscribed to their newsletters, another game has chosen this moment to throw in the towel. Torn Banner Studios have removed first-person brawler Mirage: Arcane Warfare from sale and will soon shut down their official servers. The magical follow-up to…

Have You Played… Mirage: Arcane Warfare?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I’m genuinely sad that ‘Chivalry with magic’ didn’t excite enough people for Mirage: Arcane Warfare to have an active player base. Despite giving the game away for free for a brief period, the servers for this multiplayer stab n spell ‘em up are…

Mirage: Arcane Warfare adds bots to make up numbers

First person hack-and-slash-and-magic 'em up Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site] this week received its first major update since launching in May, with new weapons, maps, and abilities added to the game. Most importantly, the Gladiator Update added bot-assisted servers in which AI combatants will make up the numbers if players don't fill all the slots. The reason that's important is that barely anybody is playing Mirage. There are 13…

Mirage: Arcane Warfare free to play this weekend

I've sunk a fair chunk of time into Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site], the first-person melee brawler in which you can both fling magic spells and lop a man's head off with a giant axe, and I've enjoyed nearly all of it. But it does have one flaw: there just aren't enough players. You'll often run into empty servers, and those that are full contain a mix of…

Mirage: Arcane Warfare’s magical bust-ups out now

Aspelliarus! That's a magic spell from the popular series of children's books, Harry Potts. Another thing that features deadly magical nonsense is Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site], the multiplayer first-person shooter from the makers of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. You swan around with swords, spears and maces while partaking in some feisty wizardry as one of six distinct classes of murderous mage. I'm telling you all…

How chivalrous! Mirage: Arcane Warfare open beta is live

Fancy stabbing some wizards this weekend? Check out the open beta test of Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site], the upcoming magical follow-up to fab first-person stabber Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. Mirage shares many of the fundamentals but with some different tricks in its fantasy classes and the meaty magic spells that its developers say they want "to feel like you're throwing bricks at people's heads". Mirage…

Giveaway: 3,000 Mirage: Arcane Warfare beta keys

Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site] is the sorcerer successor to Chivalry: Medieval Warfare's swordy multiplayer, in which two teams fight one another in tense fights requiring more skill than simply pulling a trigger. The beta has been running since March but just got a major update adding nine new maps and a character customisation system. To mark the occasion, we've got 3,000 new beta keys…

Giveaway: 10,000 Mirage: Arcane Warfare beta keys

Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site] is the new game from the developers of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, trading that game's team-based sword-fighting in favour of team-based sorcery-fighting. The game launched into beta earlier this week ahead of a planned May 23rd release and we're giving away 10,000 keys to the beta below.

Mirage: Arcane Warfare due in May, Chivalry free today

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?"…

Wizkicks and magichops in Mirage: Arcane Warfare vid

What happens when wizards get their nigredo-stained fingers on the first-person stabbing of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare? The magical melee multiplayer foolishness of Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site] is what, as you can see in a new 11-minute gameplay vid. Torn Banner Studios' enchanted follow-up will launch later this year but for now, hey, look at these wizards. They're a rowdy bunch.

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…

Vigilist smashes her way onto Mirage’s battlefields

"A girl must grab life by the collar, and make it submit" is a sentiment I can really get behind on a Monday morning. The other one is "give me coffee or give me death" but none of the Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site] characters seem inclined towards the latter at the moment. The Vigilist - the guardian-esque class in the game - is all…

Behind The Spells In Mirage: Arcane Warfare

A quote which stuck with me from GDC was Torn Banner's studio president saying he wanted the magic spells in Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site] to feel like "throwing bricks at people’s heads" and not like using pixie dust. A significant part of creating that difference will lie in how the Chivalry spiritual successor uses art and animation so I've asked members of the art…

Unchivalrous: Watch 12 Minutes Of Mirage’s Wizstabs

Mirage: Arcane Warfare Devs On Magic – “We Want It To Feel Like You’re Throwing Bricks At People’s Heads”

While over at GDC a preview opportunity for Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site] gave me a chance to check out Chivalry's spiritual successor while ALSO enjoying respite from the Californian warmth (I'm ginger and pale and British – we wilt). The game offers up a very different colour palette and setting than Chivalry's keep-n-countryside but once Torn Banner's president, Steven Piggott, and senior brand manager,…
