    Default Chivalry TW - news update (28-03-05)

    28-03-05

    T-minus 3 Days

    The Chivalry Total War Early Era MP beta will be released within 3 days (unless something really goes wrong). Some fearures:

    -over 60 playable units, all carefully balanced in series of Mp and SP tests
    -19 playable factions, each with unique units and fighting styles
    -dozens of new custom maps, ranging from flat forested maps to hilly inlands
    -redesigned gameplay, combining the tactical possibilities of MTW with the more flexible and varied units of RTW.

    Expect a full featurelist and lots of new screenshots on 31 Marsh, when the mod is publicly released !

    Unit sneakpeaks:

    Kievan Militia




    These militiamen are recruited from Kiev and allied towns and villages. Other then a shield and a thick coat they wear no armour, but their short axes can do quite a lot of damage.
    Faction(s):
    Principality of Kiev

    Mala Druzhina, Druzhina Cavalry & Foot Druzhina


    Faction(s):
    Principality of Kiev, Novgorod

    The Druzhina make up the elite units of the russian city states. The Mala Druzhina forms the king's personal bodyguard, while the Druzhina cavalry act as shock cavalry equiped with bows to soften their opponents right before the charge. In some occasions such as castle defence or assault, or in heavily forested battlefield the Druzhina might choose to fight dismounted, forming the Foot Druzhina. Armed with bows and swords there make a powerfull but small sized infantry unit.

    Mongol Heavy Cavalry


    Click here for very large screenshot

    Faction(s):
    Cuman/Mongols

    The mongol heavy cavalry is composed from mongol nobility and the richest of it's warriors. They have well armoured horses capable of acting as heavy shock cavalry. Like most mongol units they also carry bows to harras their opponents, but they are too slow and expensive to act as horse archers.

    Faction preview:

    Hungary


    The Hungarian army relies a broad range of cavalry units, both european style heavy cavalry and swift steppe tribe light cavalry and horse archers, supported by large numbers of light to medium infantry.

    Very nice. I've been looking forward to this mod from the beginning. I was wondering if you any completed mounted Turk/Saracen units?

    Awesome! Great Work guys, I can't wait to play!

    I have a question, does redesigned gameplay mean that it will have a slower kill rate and movement speed? I hope it does, I wanna actully see those units fighting rather than just routing in five seconds.

    Other than that those units look damm good, I can't wait to see what the Gothic Knights will look like!

    yes, both kill and movement speed have been reduced to something much closer to MTW.
