In a follow up to 2012’s very silly but undeniably fun Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Chivalry 2 is set to bring back the medieval brawler for another round of fisticuffs. With the promise of 64 player battles, improved visuals, and the signature meaty first-person combat from the original, Chivalry 2 is set to provide fans of the original and new players a good reason to jump in. As with all indie games of similar scope to Chivalry 2, the player base tends to be small and it requires a passionate set of players to keep a community going. However, cross-play between the console platforms and PC has been integral to ensuring the future of those games.

Thankfully, the developer Torn Banner Studios has confirmed the game will feature cross-play across all platforms. Not only this, but it also appears to confirm that cross-generational play will also feature in the game as the game has previously been confirmed for both the next-generation consoles, the PS5, and the Xbox Series X. This should mean that if you have a PS5, you can still play with friends that are playing on Xbox One, for example.

To what extent the cross-play will be implemented is currently unknown, though you can expect an array of multiplayer modes that featured in the original, such as your standard deathmatch and capture the flag style modes. 

Chivalry 2 is set for release in 2020 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.
