Dark Alliance is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Windows PC, and phones and tablets via Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) with Xbox Game Pass on Day One, June 22. But we’re not stopping there! We’ll have more monsters to slay, dungeons to loot, and challenges to overcome throughout the year.

First, let’s cover what’s coming with the June 22 launch. We have three planned post-launch content drops in 2021 that will give players more of what they love.

Free DLC 1: Wraiths

Dark Alliance

Our first planned DLC arrives this Summer (Winter for our southern hemisphere friends) and is free for everyone. This includes a new story mission over three levels, where you will battle a faction of Wraiths that are attempting to corrupt a forest spirit for their own gains.

That’s not all. We expect to add two-player split-screen play options to PC and Xbox Series X|S with this update. … Read the rest

Huzzah! It’s Chivalry 2 launch day everybody! We’re so excited for players to hop into the full release of our game for the first time. The teams at Torn Banner and Tripwire Presents have been hard at work making one of the best melee combat games ever, and now it’s time to show it to the world!

One of the true labors of love while making this game has been our sandbox approach to map design. Each map is packed with environmental features that make them feel lively. Lurking around every corner is something hilarious, insightful, or downright grotesque.

Since we can barely contain our excitement about this release, we took the time to ask a few members of our team to talk a bit about their favorite map and why. Read on to see the dev team’s picks!
