Mirage: Arcane Warfare Gameplay Shows the Wonder of Magical Decapitations


War is always more fun when you throw in some magic. Enjoy over ten minutes of brutal magical gameplay from Mirage: Arcane Warfare coming to PC.

Mirage: Arcane Warfare comes to us from Torn Banner Studios, creators of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, as a first-person multiplayer magical melee combat game. The upcoming closed beta will have new magical abilities, some tweaked character balances, and two new maps, Ridge and Courtyard.

Chivalry 2 Finally hits Steam in June Alongside Huge “Tenosian Invasion” Expansion

The video gives players a look at the sort of mayhem you should expect from the upcoming closed beta coming to Mirage Arcane Warfare. The video itself shows off a number of the different classes play out. It's interesting to see how much magically attacks play just as big a role in combat that being able to land a sword blow. Mastering parrying and blocking is even more important since at any given moment you may need to avoid getting wiped out with a fireball.

Recently, we got information regarding the new map Sunken City was announced that earlier this month:

Sunken City is set in a windswept desert under the shadow of a ruined mountain. Here, the rebellious Azar Cabal defend their magic Jinn against the imperial Bashrahni Emirate, fighting amidst the ruins of an ancient city once drowned by an ocean.
