Medieval combat bonanza Chivalry 2 will be coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X, as well as PC. Every version of the game will feature cross-play. Annnounced exclusively at today's IGN Expo, PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game will arrive alongside the previously announced PC version when that's released later this year. Next-gen console versions will receive more information at a later date. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/06/04/chivalry-2-console-and-crossplay-announcement-trailer"] All five platforms will be able to interact once they arrive, thanks to developer Torn Banner Studios' new commitment to cross-play. "The epic medieval battles in Chivalry 2 deserve an equally massive player-base," said Torn Banner president Steve Piggott in a press release. "We can't wait for gamers across the world on all five platforms to clash steel and experience the greatest melee combat system ever, together." Chivalry 2 takes the classic template from the original game and tweaks it to allow for more variation. Four classes of fighter now divide into subclasses, there's a great deal more hero customisation, and a newly huge scale allows for the introduction of multiple gigantic siege weapons. You'll even be able to keep fighting through problems as severe as being disarmed, set on fire, or having lost limbs.
