Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Looks Closer To A Linux Release

By - | Views: 15,572
Grab your swords, as Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is looking like it's getting close to a Linux release at last.

Segata reported on their teasers at the start of September, and even before that we had a tip-off that they were checking interest back in 2012. Now we have these additions to the SteamDB:
Quote219654/config/oslist: linux
219654/name: Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Linux Content
launch/3/config/oslist: linux
launch/3/description: Launch
launch/3/executable: Binaries\Linux\UDKGame-Linux
launch/3/workingdir: Binaries\Linux\
launch/4/config/osarch: 64

Looks like the Linux launch really isn't that far away now, can't wait! Especially as the Steam reviews for it are "Very Positive", it's always great to get decently rated games.

About the game
Besiege castles and raid villages in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a first-person slasher with a focus on multi-player. Featuring competitive online combat that seeks to capture the experience of truly being on a medieval battlefield. Inspired from the intensity and epicness of swordfighting movies such as 300, Gladiator and Braveheart, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare aims to bring that experience to the hands of a gamer.

The game is skill-based and controls like an FPS, but instead of guns and grenades, players are given swords, shields, maces, battleaxes and longbows. Set in a fictional, yet gritty and realistic world, players will fight in fast paced online battles besieging castles, raiding medieval villages and fighting for glory in the arena with up to 32 players.

You can check it out on Steam, but seriously don't buy it until they announce the Linux version being out. Make sure you are counted as a Linux purchase. Article taken from

A very funny game. Looking forward to playing it soon again.
Only thing I really miss from Windows is Guild Wars 2 :(

GW2 is the only reason that I haven't deleted my windows partition

guild wars 2 ran pretty good last time(about 6 months ago) i played it with wine CSMT..except the performance in world vs world battles was just crap ... but i dont play it anymore.

cant wait for chivalry...have played it about 10 hours or so with wine.. it worked quite OK but native is a lot better:)
Maelrane 12 Nov, 2014
Mine too. And the lack of time ^^
Guild Wars 2 doesn't run in Wine at all for me. I mean, it runs, lags the X-server to hell and if I manage to stop it, well... can't login or think about playing or anything :(

(But then again, I use the open source drivers in Linux for all my gaming)

But then I don't play it anyway, because I don't boot up windows that often. Actually I only boot it up, when a new chapter of the living story is online and I want to grab that. Kinda ironic xD

... Not to mention it's got a metascore of 82% on gamerankings, that's very solid indeed.
Adding it to my wishlist right away!

I've always eyed this and been tempted to get it when it went on sale - but always saw that it wasn't Linux ready on Steam yet so I held my horses.
Can't wait for it to go on Linux sale! =D

God damn i haven't played this gem of a game in a good while, i'm looking forward to this!
Guest 12 Nov, 2014
just the other day I was hoping that this might some how come out for Linux.

Great news. I wont purchase it until its out properly so it counts as a sale.
