This is the BETA
You’ve started the Beta version of Chivalry. This is for testing patches, you don’t need to use it to just play the game, only to test patches before they’re released to the main game! If you’re confused as to why it seems that no one is playing the game, this is why.
In the future, we may test beta patches in the “Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Beta” app. If you don’t want to take part in patch testing you should uninstall the Beta, as shown below. Otherwise, you’ll automatically download all Beta patches, and the Beta will needlessly use up space on your computer.
