GFN Thursday Games Line-Up


13 games are set to be onboarded this week but I would like to start with my highlight of the week which is Chivalry 2.


This is a day and date release and is available from the Epic Games Store right now.


Chivalry 2 is a multiplayer first person slasher inspired by epic medieval movie battles. Players are thrust into the action of every iconic moment of the era - from clashing swords, to storms of flaming arrows, to sprawling castle sieges and more.


Cross-Play is enabled across PC (via Epic Games Store), PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.


Features:

  • 64 player sprawling, multi-stage Team Objective maps, complete with epic castle sieges, forest ambushes and good old medieval pillaging.

  • Next-gen visual leap: AAA presentation. Unreal Engine 4.

  • There is a Revamped Combat System with All new combat moves, a weighty and physical animation system and new, faster and more natural combat flow.

  • Battlefields are littered with things to interact with. Grab a chicken, set it on fire and throw it; improvise a new fighting style with pitchforks – or cabbages!

  • Enhanced player expression with new over the top characters and thousands of voice lines along with deep character customization provide incredible options for player creativity and roleplaying.

  • Keep fighting with missing limbs or even if downed and gasping for your last breath.

Chivalry 2 is about the feeling of survival against the odds and – if you do go down – the opportunity to make it a glorious death.
