has revealed the full list of classes that will be made available for players to compete against in Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior, the upcoming expansion to Torn Banner's Chivalry: Medieval Warfare based on based on Spike TV’s historical “What if?” show.
Taking the stand alongside the previously revealed Spartan and Samurai will be the viking, pirate, ninja and knight. Alongside the various historical weapons that the classes will be able to equip is the chance for players to utilise class specific abilities to deal deadly extra damage in a unique way. One example given is the viking, who offers up a berserker mode that will increase his weapon combo strikes, getting faster and faster the longer the combo is maintained.
Of course it isn't just the medieval classes that will be available, with several new maps also being offered in the expansion, all tuned to certain periods in time.
Each warrior will also have a signature map. We got to fight it out on the Samurai and Spartan maps, depicting Japanese and Hellenic temple complexes, respectively. The Samurai map featured a section of destructible floor that gave way to a deadly pit, as well as accessible rooftops to fight on. The Spartan map featured a larger, circular abyss that totally wasn’t at all inspired by any emissary-kicking scenes in major Hollywood action movies.
