Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360

After two years of PC exclusivity, developer Torn Banner Studios is bringing its action title Chivalry: Medieval Warfare to consoles, thanks to a new partnership with Activision.

The publisher announced today that Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is currently in the works for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and will launch as a downloadable title later this year. The port is made possible through a collaboration with Mercenary Technology, a game management and consultation company.

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare initially launched in October 2012 for Windows PC through Steam. Developer Torn Banner Studios created the title with similar mechanics to the team's 2007 Half-Life 2 mod, Age of Chivalry.

Chivalry's console versions will retain the PC version's 12-player multiplayer as well as its four playable classes — Archer, Knight, Man-at-Arms and Vanguard. Players can take each other on in melee combat with swords, shields, javelins, crossbows and other period-authentic ancient weapons.The game also tasks players with other war challenges, such as raiding villages, burning crops and taking down other factions' castles.
