In a three-star review of Chivalry 2, NME said “it’s less about gritty historical realism and more about tongue-in-cheek bloodbaths.

“There’s certainly a real charm to how silly it can get despite the violence, a slapstick futility to rushing objectives, a sense of camaraderie when a wave of teammates spawn together and all scream as they charge right into the arc of a rock thrown from a catapult.

“There’s almost an element of performance to it, a sort of grim, violent roleplay in the life of one of many nameless grunts sent to die, more often than not perforated by an arrow from a cowardly archer.”

In other news, director of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Konrad Tomaszkiewicz has formed new studio Rebel Wolves to create a story-driven RPG built in Unreal Engine 5.

Tomaszkiewicz said the studio is targeting a 2025 release date for this first game and the company said in a press release that it will be hiring to fill roles “in the coming months.”
