Long time Chiv 1 player here(7 Years). Excited for Chivalry 2! Pre-ordered and played the closed Beta.
Feedback and suggestions below about Voice Acting in Chiv 2 Closed-Beta.
While playing the Closed-Beta, I noticed specifically for Agathian Knights, they are made to sound more like hoarse voiced bullies rather than their previous state of Chivalric “battle brotherly” tone that Chiv 1 had for Agathian Knights. Referring to their teammates as “Brothers” and having that bold sound of faith in their voice for “the Light”;
On that note, I also noticed that there is no more voice option for “Got your back”. Hopefully it is in the works for both factions and all classes; as I remember making many a friend in Chiv 1 simply by letting your battle brothers know you are with them.
“Fear not brother, for I am with you!” ,
“I’ve got your back brother!” ,
“Together for the light, brother!”,
“Fear not brother, I am here!” ,
“I will be by your side, brother!”
I’m happy that the feature of rushing into battle and pressing " C " to let out a war-cry is still alive and well. I’m sure more yells are in the works, but if not, then I hope they will be considered; as I miss each side yelling their pride for their banner. Which I personally didn’t really hear much of if at all throughout the battles in the Closed-Beta. No “FOR THE ORDER!” or “AGATHAAAAAA!” screams heard in the midst of all the chaos. Furthermore, the current war-cry sounds more like a very long drawn out hoarse yawn for Agathian Knights rather than a cry filled with determination and vigor.
Expanding on the sound of war-cries, the current Agathian Man at Arms Voice in the Closed-Beta pales in comparison to anything that came before. He sounds impish and more like a jester. I hope this will be re-evaluated. I like silly meme worthy voices as much as the next guy, but this goes a little too beyond that in my opinion. You can have meme-y funny voices and still hold the integrity of the game’s immersion, just like the hilarious voice of the Mason Man-at-Arms in Chiv 1. Their Funny Voice that evokes a laughter or a voice line in such a way that makes anyone chuckle, yet still keeps the immersion alive.
Maybe a “Select Voice” feature will be available to help mitigate these concerns, with the Chiv 1 voices also available!
These were some of my main concerns with the game’s Voice Acting after playing the Closed Beta. I cannot speak too much for the other classes or the Masons and their classes for I did not play Mason as much as Agatha(Knight and Vanguard). Though I wonder if others felt the same for a specific class’ voice acting that I did not address here.
That’s all for now. See you all on the field!
For the Light!
Horse yawn haha thats just funny. I fealt that a warcry or 2 was a little drawn out myself but at times couldnt help but laugh regardless. I can see those longer yells getting annoying after a bit.I wish i had played chiv 1 sadly this is my first experience with this series i see people saying mordhau is better ,chiv 1 and other games of the sort but heres the thing.None of those i can play on my ps4 so until then chivalry 2 is the winner lol . I cant see me playing anything but this for a long time and if they add things to purchase further that would be smart as im sure i wont be the only die hard that wants to purchase another weapon skin or as you say maybe even add more yells and such
Chiv 1 on PC is still very much alive. So that is why I am so adamant in comparing the two games Voice Acting. But if you were curious as to what I tried to describe regarding voices in my post, check out this cool Chiv 1 Sound Board! :
More importantly check out the “Got your back” in the personal tab for each class. But specifically with Agatha Knight and Man at Arms. Also stationary BattleCry and Running BattleCry sounds!
