Mordhau is an upcoming multiplayer medieval fighting game with a strong emphasis on skill-based competitive play and customization. It features a deep and fluid combat system that allows those that master it to turn into an unstoppable force on the battlefield.

The indie game was partially financed with a successful Kickstarter campaign.

It is being developed by Triternion, and will use the Unreal Engine 4.

It will feature 64-player combat and will release in March 2018 for PC.

It's basically a WAY better and more realistic Chivalry.

bump, anyone tried the alpha for this game?

I dunno. Sounds like they're setting themselves up to fail, with the emphesis on catering to skilled players. That usually translates to a core community of super players driving away anyone unwilling, or unable, to put in the time to pass the learning curve.

That's an automatic pass for players just looking for a good time, and don't want a second job.

That's an automatic pass for players just looking for a good time, and don't want a second job. Chivalry: Medieval Warfare was a massive success and became one of the most popular multiplayer games on the market. Now people are looking at Mordhau and clamoring for the game to come out so they can ditch Chiv.

Chiv has a stagnant player base, though.

If Mordhou want to siphon them over, then it's a smart move. In general though, games with a heavy skill gap generally have very narrow appeal. Just look at fighting games or certain competitive fps's... Every single one has a "newbie" phase, create a bunch of pro's, and the 99% that spend all day getting pwned move on to the next thing.

For Honor has tons of players.
