Chivalry: Medieval Warfare slices its way to the Xbox One on Dec. 1

Activision is about to publish a different kind of multiplayer first-person action game for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. December 1 will see the release of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare for both consoles, after its previous release on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms.

The game was originally developed by Torn Banner Studios, and the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions were ported by Hardsuit Labs. Here's a quick description:

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare makes combat fast, forceful and precise with a deep melee fighting system and the ability to quickly switch between first and third-person perspectives. Lay waste to castles and villages as one of four distinct classes – Knight, Vanguard, Man-at-Arms and Archer – in battles of cold, ruthless steel across a multitude of solo and team-based modes. The game includes over 60 period-authentic swords, axes, maces, javelins, bows and more, complemented by a range of armors, helmets and siege weapons, including catapults, ballistae, boiling oil and battering rams.

The full game supports up to 24 players in online multiplayer, with 25 maps and a new horde mode where up to six players battle waves of enemies and monsters. The game will go on sale December 1 for $19.99, and there will also be a version with extra cosmetic weapon, armor and character skin packs for $29.99.
