Torn Banner Studios’ multiplayer medieval battle game Chivalry 2 has sold over one million units since its launch in June.
Tripwire Presents and Torn Banner Studios have announced that Chivalry 2 has sold an impressive one million copies across PC, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles. It’s the first game published by Tripwire Presents to reach the milestone and is Torn Banner’s fastest-selling title released to date.
The news comes as the game receives the sizeable House Galencourt update. The expansion adds two maps, a new 3-versus-3 gameplay mode, and a return of the fan-favourite arrow camera previously seen in the original Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.
Speaking about the game’s achievement, Torn Banner president Steve Piggott says:
“Despite just launching in June, over a million people across five platforms have already played Chivalry 2, which tells us how much more potential the game has to grow. We are so happy to have brought Chivalry 2’s unique experience of bloody, epic medieval warfare to so many people – and we’re already hard at work expanding the game much, much more.”
Tripwire CEO John Gibson adds:
“We’ve been blown away by the response from players and critics alike, and the team is already hard at work on more great free content and adding highly requested features such as cross-platform parties.”
To mark the occasion, Tripwire has released an infographic detailing some of the playing community’s achievements.
