Publishers Tripwire Presents and Deep Silver, and developer Torn Banner Studios have delayed the Chivalry II cross-play closed beta test, which was previously planned to run from March 26 to 29, to April 23 to 26. It will be available across all platforms.
Here is Torn Banner Studios’ message on the delay:
Torn Banner Studios and Tripwire Presents made the decision to delay the beta release by approximately four weeks for the following reasons:
- Chivalry II is our pride and joy. The cross-play closed beta will truly unleash the bulk of our game to the public eye for the very first time. Therefore, we want to make sure it delivers the greatest experience that it possibly can, for all players on all platforms.
- This delay guarantees that the cross-play closed beta can release on all platforms and both console generations, all with cross-play. This delay will ensure that all players will have the opportunity to participate on their platform of choice.
For those who simply can’t wait, fear not! Additional closed alpha testing is planned prior to beta, and we’ll continue to broaden the key rollout for the alpha testing list to ensure we take advantage of the time gained.
Chivalry II is due out for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store on June 8.
