Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One game or two on Twitch for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. It's like a live podcast, only you also get to watch a game while chatting with our awesome readers and viewers!
Tonight we played two exciting games: Chivalry: Medieval Warfare (Xbox One) from Activision and DARIUSBURST: Chronicle Saviours (Steam) from Degica. We even gave out a big mix of Xbox One games as prizes. Read on for game details, prize winners, and full video replays for both games!
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
Besiege castles and raid villages in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a first-person slasher with a focus on multi-player. Featuring competitive online combat that seeks to capture the experience of truly being on a medieval battlefield. Inspired from the intensity and epicness of swordfighting movies such as 300, Gladiator and Braveheart, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare aims to bring that experience to the hands of a gamer.
The game is skill-based and controls like an FPS, but instead of guns and grenades, players are given swords, shields, maces, battleaxes and longbows. Set in a fictional, yet gritty and realistic world, players will fight in fast paced online battles besieging castles, raiding medieval villages and fighting for glory in the arena with up to 24 players.
- Now including over 25 battlefields, up to 24 player online multiplayer, and an all new Horde Mode.
- Deep melee combat system allows you to wield an arsenal of 60+ brutal weapons ranging from broad swords to longbows.
- Switch between the intense combat of first-person to the tactical view of third-person anytime during battle.
- Team tactics and strategy bring players together to batter down gates and assassinate enemy royalty to achieve victory.
- Use a variety of siege weapons ranging from catapults, boiling oil, ballista, battering rams and more.
Watch us play Chivalry to see the only first-person melee combat-focused multiplayer game on Xbox One. Full review coming soon!
