Not gonna lie pretty disappointed by this news.
I like the art style, and genuinely value that you are doing your own thing, and going in your own direction.
However I brought chivalry because It’s a competitive First person slasher/shooter in a medieval setting, with a mostly realistic art style. And that wasn’t common back then, or even now. And I’d argue alot of your fan base are made up of people with similar opinions.
The only examples I can think of before Chiv are Mount and blade (which is dated, has a clunky combat system with a third person focus), and war of the roses (which has a clunky combat system with a third person focus)
So I’m kind of confused as to why your moving away from this niche you had to what looks like a more MOBA type of game, as if there aren’t enough of those already ha. I guess yours is first person, but then your going up against blizzard with their Overwatch.
I know I’m commenting alot on what is only a teaser, but this is what I see, Because to me the great thing about chivalry combat was that it was simple to understand but hard to master.
However with this trailer I see combat that looks too flashy, with too many effects going off onscreen, and from my experience in chiv I’d say this would distract from the pure and enjoyable simplicity that chiv combat had, and that this game is using. I mean its hard enough keeping track of someones sword, let alone when you have purple auras surging round you.
I’m sad to say as I see it this is a game I will be giving a miss, but I’m open to change my mind and will be watching it until its released.
I wish you guys good luck with it though, and as I said before I do respect that you are doing your own thing and moving in your own creative direction.
