What you need to know

  • The Chivalry 2 Closed Beta has been extended until April 27, 2021 at 10:30 AM ET.
  • The extension is due to issues Xbox users have been having, preventing them from accessing the beta.
  • Torn Banner Studios says fixes are on the way soon.

The Closed Beta for Chivalry 2 that players can get access to by preordering the game has been extended until Tuesday April 27, 2021 at 10:30 AM ET due to technical issues Xbox players are having trying to access the beta. Currently, many Xbox players are unable to play the game entirely, which has prompted developer Torn Banner Studios to extend the beta.

According to the Chivalry 2 Twitter account, fixes have been deployed and Xbox players should now be able to download and play the beta.

Chivalry 2 is available to preorder now on Xbox and PC for $40, and the full game launches on June 8, 2021. If you're interested in playing the game early, preordering it now is a good idea since you'll get access to the extended Closed Beta. I recommend checking the game out if you like these types of games, as it's a ton of fun (check out my Chivalry 2 preview for more on why).
