Remember the madness of Knight Squad from Chainsawesome Games? Well, the sequel is on its way and Knight Squad 2 is gearing up for a launch in Q4 2020 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Windows PC.
After racking up more than 1.8 million players, it could be said that the original Knight Squad had something about it. But that doesn’t mean things can’t get better and with Knight Squad 2, Chainawesome Games will be looking to build on what went before it to bring even more arcade based multiplayer madness to Xbox and PC players.
Due to launch in Q4 2020, Knight Squad 2 will bring chaotic party action to Xbox One, Xbox Series X via backwards compatibility, and Windows PC.
It’ll tell the tale of the chivalric world of medieval nobility, one where knights are eager to win the favour of their feudal lords. The thing is, jousting has gone out of style and instead warriors have found new ways to display their valor. To capture the court’s attention, armored champions stride into gladiatorial contests brandishing magical spell books, exotic weapons like boomerangs, and bazookas.
In Knight Squad 2 you will be able to join the fray with up to eight players, before duking it out across more than 13 competitive modes. You’ll find the chance to fight to become the last one standing in free-for-all events such as Battle Royale or squad up to take on all comers in old favourites like Capture the Flag. And further still, new game types including Payload, which sees teams clash in an explosive tug of war to deliver powder kegs to the enemy base, and Minion Master, where rivals raise armies to besiege and topple opposing fortresses, will also be present.
No matter the arena though, the knights in Knight Squad 2 will be able to wield a wild arsenal of weapons and powerups, ranging from traditional medieval arms to more absurd ones like ghosts, land mines, and laser guns. Knight Squad 2’s over-the-top action brings a signature element to the table, transforming even the likes of Soccer into a full contact combat sport and emblazoning an element of turbulent fun onto an accessible, simple-to-understand experience that brings people together.
“The original Knight Squad has such an amazing community and our team is happy to reveal we’re returning with a sequel,” said Laurent Mercure, Communications Officer, Chainsawesome Games. “After years of playing with you, growing as creatives, and listening to your feedback, we’re looking forward to bringing it all together when we launch Knight Squad 2 later this year.”
Knight Squad 2 will run the local multiplayer line as well as cross-platform online play, with gamers on Xbox One, Xbox Series X via backwards compatibility, and Windows PC finding support for English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish language options.
We’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date with matters as the months progress. For now though take in that trailer below.
