Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Announced for PS3 and Xbox 360
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is going to finally break through its PC exclusivity and release for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, announced Torn Banner Studios today.
The action title has previously been available for the PC community for more than two years and now will be coming to the last-gen consoles via a new partnership with Activision.
According to the publisher, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare will release as a digital title later this year. Mercenary Technology, a game management and consultation company, is said to be highly responsible in the development of the console ports.
Similar to the PC version, the game will feature a 12-player multiplayer mode and four playable classes – Archer, Knight, Man-at-Arms and Vanguard.
The game will have an abundance of war challenges such as raiding villages, burning crops and taking down castles belonging to enemy factions. All weapons and other items such as swords, shields, javelins, crossbows and more, available on the PC version will be available for choosing on the consoles as well.
The developer though did not mention if there would be additional content on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, in the shape of perhaps new weapons or more challenges.
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare was launched in October 2012 for the PC and is an homage to the team’s 2007 Half-Life 2 mod called Age of Chivalry. While an exact release date wasn’t mentioned, expect the game to release just in time for this year’s holiday season.
