Hippodrome


Chivalry2_Game_Pass_01.jpg



After the fall of the bulwark in Baudwyn, many Masons who were unable to retreat were captured and held prisoner in Askandir. With the sound of cheering Tenosian spectators wishing for a good show and their deaths, the Masons must prove that they will not be taken down for sport. Fight on horseback and prove your faction’s might!


Hippodrome is a fast, frantic, bloody combat arena with spike traps, flamethrowers and horses thrown into the mix. You’ll feel like a gladiator fighting for your life in this Tenosian equivalent of Tournament Grounds. Listen to the stampede of hooves as you run down the field with lance couched, ready to slam into any enemy in your sights.


Katars

The first dual-wielded weapon joins the world of Chivalry 2! The Katars are a matched pair of deadly daggers for swift close range attacks. Designed for the Ambusher class, it is a very fast stab weapon that does not interrupt opponents. It also encourages the player wielding it to have good footwork and to make use of dodges, as it has a very weak block compared to other weapons. The katars make for an excellent engaging weapon, allowing Ambushers to get behind enemy lines and cut down heavily armored fighters with ease.


This weapon requires high precision to use and much practice. Aim well during your ambushes!


Unique Properties:


  • Katars operate under the same counter rules seen in spears (ie. a stab input will counter a Katar’s slash and stab attack)
  • The special is quick and has the chance of hitting an opponent twice
  • When inputting Jab, players wielding Katars will headbutt instead of a standard weapon jab
  • Slash, stab, and overhead attacks of the Katars will not cause the opponent to flinch when you successfully land a hit

    Love the new items and the art designs. I'm really hoping they will release an update that allows us to merge our Chivalry 2 info from our Epic Games account with a Steam version, since most of my friends play on Steam. I'd buy the game through Steam in a heartbeat if I could transfer my unlocked cosmetics!
    Granted, I'm not very knowledgeable in the matter, but I would guess the issue doesn't come from Tripwire nor Torn Banner, and more likely from Steam and/or Epic? Just like console wars of yore, I would think the two services aren't exactly giddy helping each other, especially considering Epic was snatching every possible exclusive when it launched.

    Then again, Yoshi mentioned that it will soon be possible to transfer your stats from one account to the other... So who knows?

    There is no real restriction from the platforms, but the two platforms don't "talk to each other".

    So if you want a feature like this, you need to build your own backend to be able to support it, which is a non insignificant amount of work to build and maintain. It is also why cross platform parties isn't something many games do yet (and is something Chivalry is still working towards!).
