Medieval multiplayer hack-and-slasher Mordhau (opens in new tab) will be out on April 29, developer Triternion has announced.
Mordhau offers both 64-player brawls and small-scale fights, and you'll take part in castle sieges, cavalry charges, and horde-style combat against waves of AI enemies. Its battle royale mode will see you start with just your fists and compete to be the last player standing on a large map, while the circle closes in.
It will also have a conquest-style Frontline mode, which is where you'll find the sieges and horse combat. Two teams compete on a large map, capturing enemy control points in a linear order. The end goal is to reach and take the other side's base.
It promises plenty of customization, both in approach to combat—you can be an archer or a bruiser with a two-handed sword—and over how your character looks. You make weapons out of smaller parts, and you can choose different individual armor pieces.
As someone who loved Chivalry: Medieval Warfare (opens in new tab), this is one that I'm excited about. The Steam page (opens in new tab) doesn't yet have a price but the full game was unlocked with a $25 pledge on the game's Kickstarter page (opens in new tab), which ended up raising nearly $300,000.
Watch the trailer above if you want to see some gameplay footage.
Thanks, VG247 (opens in new tab).
