Chivalry (2021) 2 is an online sword fighting game that recreates epic medieval movie battles. It's the sequel to Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and thrusts you first-hand into huge battles where you must survive clashing swords, storms of flaming arrows and sprawling castle sieges.

You control a warrior that can be customised right down to the gurgling battle cries and other expressions. You are equipped with medieval melee weapons from sledgehammers to long swords and battle axes. Other weapons can be discovered and used during each battle.

Encountering enemy players you have three attack patterns: horizontal slash, vertical slash, and a stab, which can be chained together. This, combined with the need to block, creates a flexible fighting system that requires considerable skill and good timing,

Although it's gorey and bloody, the action has an over-the-top tongue-in-cheek feel to it. While avoiding the silliness of Monty Python's Black Knight (that never loses) dismemberment is a part of the entertainment rather than the shock of the game.

Battles pit the Agatha Knights, who wear blue and white, and Mason Order, who wear red and black, against each other. This is either in a battle to the death of with objectives where one group must break into the opposite team's castle and eliminate their king.

Our examiner, Jo Robertson, first checked Chivalry II 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Andy Robertson and updated 8 weeks ago.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 18 for Violence. This game features graphic violence towards human characters, which is inflicted using a range of medieval weapons, including swords, maces and longbows. Bladed weapons allow the player to decapitate or dismember enemy characters, which results in sight of blood and gore. When limbs are cut off, enemy characters may continue to move around until they bleed out. Innocent and unarmed characters, such as adult villagers, can also be killed, although they cannot be dismembered. The game also features bad language, such as 'prick', '*!@?*', '*!@?*', '*!@?*' and 'whore', as well as some verbal innuendo.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

In addition to the ratings, it's worth noting that you can turn off both Gore and Dismemberment in the settings on PC and console. You can set it to:
  • Minimal: No graphic blood or dismemberment.
