Chivalry 2 Cross-Play Closed Beta Begins Today, Runs Until April 26

After being delayed from March, Chivalry 2 is officially welcoming players to its cross-play closed beta. The event will run until April 26 and is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

Access to the closed beta is included with all Chivalry 2 pre-orders – so now’s a great time to pick it up if you’re itching to jump into the medieval mayhem. Plenty of new content will be available during the test, including a new Siege of Rudhelm map and several new game modes. Here’s a full breakdown of what the Chivalry 2 cross-play closed beta has to offer:

  • Cross-Play: Cross-Play smashes the boundaries between PC and console, allowing players on all platforms to face off on the battlefield together
  • New map – The Siege of Rudhelm: In the first public hands-on of Chivalry 2 since PAX East 2020, experience the return of the fan-favorite Team Objective mode and join attacking or defending teams as 64-players vie for control of a well-fortified castle in a never-before-seen map
  • More modes: In addition to an additional massive Team Objective map called The Fall of Lionspire, closed beta participants can also sharpen their skills in Team Deathmatch maps The Battle of Wardenglade and Tournament Grounds
  • Massive scale: 64 players in sprawling, multi-stage Team Objective maps, complete with epic castle sieges, forest ambushes, and good old medieval pillaging

  • Subclass system: Your arsenal expands with the new subclass system that provides more variety than ever before. Four base classes expand to 12 subclasses, including the Skirmisher, a melee/ranged hybrid – to the Poleman, a fighter who keeps foes at bay with long-distance melee.
  • Win with any weapon: Own the field with a variety of heavy siege engines including Ballistae, Catapults, Trebuchet, Battering Rams, Mantlets, Spike Traps, Ladders, and more. Utilize traps to defend, including spikes, bear traps, and more. You can even deal damage with a smorgasbord of “found items” on the battlefield. Try downing a cup of mead and deal a killing blow with the empty chalice or finish off a foe by smashing him in the face with a flaming chicken!

Chivalry 2 delayed its closed beta from March to April to ensure it “delivers the greatest experience it possibly can, for all players on all platforms.” In other words, the team wanted to give it one last bit of polish before releasing it to the masses.

Chivalry 2 is scheduled to launch on June 8.
