Chivalry 2: Winter War Update Unleashes New Campaign Pass, Team Objective Map, and Quarterstaff Weapon Alongside Free Weekend for PC and Consoles
Torn Banner Studios is an independent video game developer based in Toronto, Canada responsible for creating the award-winning multiplayer hit, Chivalry 2, the sequel to the genre-defining medieval first-person slasher, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. When Chivalry 2 first launched worldwide in 2021, Torn Banner Studios pledged to “double the size of the game in terms of scope and content,” within one year. Since then, the developers have released numerous and significant content updates for its growing community, introducing mounted combat and cavalry charges, an all-new faction, new maps, game modes, weapons, quality of life updates, a console server browser, and more with support from publisher Tripwire Presents and global retail publisher Deep Silver.
Out now for PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store), the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Chivalry 2: Winter War is one of Torn Banner Studios’ most substantial updates yet, with a wide array of new content and features to discover and explore. The Chivalry 2: Winter War update and all previous content updates are free to all owners of Chivalry 2 and is a part of developer Torn Banner Studios’ commitment to continue supporting the title and its community.
New Campaign Pass
Chivalry 2 is excited to introduce the Campaign Pass to players for the first time. Earn experience points during the Winter War Campaign Pass and unlock free in-game rewards, such as currency and new armory items. Players may also choose to upgrade and unlock premium rewards. The Winter War Premium Campaign Pass can be purchased for 1,000 Crowns in-game. Unlike traditional battle passes, the Campaign Pass has no time limit. More information on the new Campaign Pass can be found here.
New Team Objective Map: The Assault on Thayic Stronghold
Set in a brand-new biome full of chilling snow and ice, the Agathians find themselves cornered by the Masons in their northern stronghold. The Masons are tasked with laying siege upon the Thayic Stronghold to kill the self-proclaimed Agathian Knights’ leader, King Argon II. However, this task will not be easy. The shoreline is heavily defended with artillery and the Masons must break through the walls, lowering the main fort’s drawbridge, and capture the courtyard right at the foot of Argon’s doorstep.
New VIP: King Argon II
If the Agatha Knights are not able to prevent the Masons from capturing the courtyard, the top player will be crowned king and must lead their team to victory as King Argon II! As King Argon II, VIP players must take charge and raise the banners to reclaim lost ground while Agatha Knights join forces to protect the VIP at all costs.
New Weapon: Quarterstaff
Reimagined for Chivalry 2, the mighty Quarterstaff makes a hard-hitting return from the original Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. Designed for the Crusader class, the Quarterstaff offers a combination of quick, short-ranged slash attacks and slow, mid-long ranged stabs and overheads. In addition, the Quarterstaff features a unique special attack that can cleave through opponents while leaving plenty of stamina to hold defensive lines.
Merry Chivmas Winter Event
In addition, players can look forward to the return of Chivalry 2’s Merry Chivmas Winter Event, featuring holiday-themed maps, weaponized presents, and more until Jan. 5.
