Chivalry: Medieval Warfare devs announce Mirage: Arcane Warfare
If you enjoyed Chivalry: Medieval Warfare but felt it was bogged down by all that pesky medieval-ism, today is your lucky day. Torn Banner Studios have today announced a follow-up, Mirage: Arcane Warfare.
On the surface it looks pretty similar – because why shake things up too much when you’re already pretty much the only developer in a niche – but the addition of magical powers and less realistic fighters could make a lot of difference to die hard fans.
Of course, it’s *current year* and that means that the above trailer isn’t actually a trailer for the game, but a trailer for a trailer for the game that’ll be released this time next week. If that doesn’t make any sense to you, that’s just the state of games marketing right now, and there’s nothing anybody can do to stop it.
As well as a promise that we’ll find out much more about the game on March 9th, the press release also makes mention of fast-paced combat gameplay and bloody weaponry, and that the game is being built in Unreal Engine 4.
Like its previous offering, we can expect Torn Banner to support Mirage pretty well,a nd I suspect it’s only a matter of time until a console edition is announced. For now though, it’s PC exclusive, and is expected later this year.
