TORN BANNER AND 345 GAMES JOIN FORCES

IN ‘CHIVALRY: DEADLIEST WARRIOR’

Spike TV’s Deadliest Warrior is Joining the Knights of Chivalry for Epic New Battles. New Warriors to Make Their Debut at PAX Prime

NEW YORK, N.Y., August 26, 2013 – Six of history’s most ruthless and notorious warriors slash their way onto the battlefield of Torn Banner’s hit PC game, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare for a true battle royale in the new expansion pack, CHIVALRY: DEADLIEST WARRIOR, based on the Spike TV series, “Deadliest Warrior”

Fans will get their first glimpse of the expansion pack when it makes its public debut at PAX Prime in booth #3636, August 30 – September 2. The extensive demo will present in-depth game play with the first two announced warriors—the notorious Spartan and Samurai. Players can join the beta soon to experience combat of all five new warriors with a variety of new modes and lush new environments. The complete expansion pack will be unleashed this Fall for $14.99 on Steam. The base Chivalry game is available now for $24.99.

“We are very excited to expand upon the foundation of Chivalry and bring dynamic melee combat to all new eras. For us it is an opportunity to explore completely new warrior types, environments and weapons and add them to the already expansive Chivalry content while still supporting the base game,” says Steve Piggott, president of Torn Banner Studios. “The Deadliest Warrior show asks one core question – if the greatest warriors from throughout history fought it out, who would win? Now we are bringing that decision to gamers as they get to vote for their faction with the swing of their sword, determining once and for all who is deadliest!”

Dan Yang, General Manager of 345 Games adds: “We’re excited about pairing the unique concept of Deadliest Warrior with a game that offers such a rich combat experience. Our console games have provided fans of Deadliest Warrior with hugely entertaining single-player action in arena-based battles. This expansion pack allows us to inject the Deadliest Warrior conflict into an entirely new multi-player, multi-era world to create the only first-person slasher of its kind. We’re certain the resulting combat will be as intense as the warriors themselves.”

Already played by over a million gamers, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is known for its exceptional first-person combat. The Deadliest Warrior expansion adds completely new game modes and content, allowing players to create any number of unique battle situations:
