Game will be dead until Steam release
Chivalry 2 in terms of gameplay is one of the better games i’ve played, everything else is shocking, it’s horrendous. The content support has been non existent until this recent patch, which managed to break the game. Cosmetics are resetting mid game, party invites are as broken as ever, server browser is broken and i’ve sent numerous emails about various thing without any replies what so ever.
My guess is this will be like Total War Troy, 12 months of Epic exclusivity with hardly any support but once released on steam it will be a great game. Everyone who owns it through Epic is basically just playing a beta.
