THE WORLD’S BEST WARRIORS COLLIDE
AS TORN BANNER AND 345 GAMES LAUNCH
CHIVALRY: DEADLIEST WARRIOR ON STEAM

Spike TV’s “Deadliest Warrior” Joins Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
For The Ultimate in Virtual Combat

NEW YORK, N.Y., November 14, 2013 – The highly anticipated expansion pack for the hit PC game Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is now available. CHIVALRY: DEADLIEST WARRIOR launched today on Steam and retails for $14.99. Based on the Spike TV series “Deadliest Warrior,” the new expansion adds the lethal combat skills of the Samurai, Pirate, Spartan, Viking and Ninja to Chivalry’s iconic Knight.

“We want to thank everyone who participated in the beta and provided their feedback, resulting in great new content for Chivalry: Medieval Warfare,” said Steve Piggott, President of Torn Banner Studios. “We worked extremely hard to incorporate and balance the diverse play styles of the new warriors, and to create exciting new game modes and environments. I think this expansion offers a refreshing change of pace and style from the base game and believe that Chivalry owners will be pleasantly surprised by how unique Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior is as a separate experience. ”

Dan Yang, General Manager of 345 Games adds: “Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior enhances the exceptional first-person combat style of Chivalry that is enjoyed by over a million players, by speeding up and broadening the gameplay. It also takes the Deadliest Warrior franchise from one-on-one combat to the battlefield.”

The new expansion pack features six warriors from the Deadliest Warrior universe, each with a unique play style and weapons set.
• Spartan: A shielded warrior that excels when fighting in teams
• Ninja: A swift stealth warrior with good crowd control abilities
• Samurai: A versatile fighter with a broad arsenal of long range and melee weapons
• Pirate: An effective skirmisher with access to gunpowder weapons
• Viking: An all-out berserker that excels at overwhelming opponents at close range
• Knight: A tank with superior armor with high-impact weapons

In addition, players go to war in six all-new environments, authentic to each of the warriors.
• Acropolis: An Ancient Greek Temple City
• Bamboo Forest: A dark ninja village shrouded in mist
• Fortress Garden: Traditional samurai stronghold
• Ducat Isle: A pirate’s paradise complete with hidden treasure trove
• Fjord: A frigid Norse fishing port
• Fertile Valley: Medieval castle with siege weaponry
With extensive statistics, players can finally determine which warrior is deadliest. Battles can take place across six new game modes, which feature one-on-one combat, free for all, and capture the flag matches. Teams and warriors can be customized based on appearance, match types, customizable servers, taunts, and emblems – with some weapons and accessories only accessible after mastering a particular warrior’s technique.

CHIVALRY: DEADLIEST WARRIOR is now available on Steam for $14.99. The base game is required to play and is available for $24.99. Players can also purchase the game and expansion pack as a bundle.

Spike TV, Bellator and 345 Games Bring the Fight to E3 2012 with ‘Bellator: MMA Onslaught’

May 31st, 2012 by gulatis

SPIKE TV, BELLATOR AND 345 GAMES BRING THE FIGHT TO E3 2012 WITH ‘BELLATOR: MMA ONSLAUGHT’

Entire Roster of Fighters Revealed and Available for Play in Los Angeles Next Week

NEW YORK, N.Y. – May 30, 2012 – Players eager to step into the cage and test out their virtual MMA skills will get their chance next week when 345 Games showcases their new arcade style video game, Bellator: MMA Onslaught during the E3 Expo in Los Angeles, June 5-7.  In advance of the event, 345 Games has unveiled its roster of world-class fighters, all of whom will be playable at E3 2012 in Concourse Hall Booth #8505.

 

The final Bellator fighter roster includes:

Based on Bellator Fighting Championships, Bellator: MMA Onslaught is a new breed of arcade-style fighting game that combines the quick tempo of actual combat with cerebral strategy found in real life MMA. Players are able to replicate the most electrifying moves through a straightforward pick-up-and-play control scheme which transitions seamlessly from striking to the ground fighting.

345 Games collaborated closely with Bellator Fighting Championships to create Bellator: MMA Onslaught, ensuring the arcade style gaming experience mirrors the organization’s format, styles, graphics and music.

“We have worked closely with 345 Games to deliver an authentic Bellator experience and we are developing a variety of ways to integrate live Bellator events with our game in the coming seasons. ” Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney said.

The game will also feature a robust fighter creation and customization engine with hundreds of individual moves that players can mix and match after choosing a base style. As players level up their fighter, they will earn the ability to buy and select new skills and moves, which they can then invest to augment their abilities in striking, ground, throws, defense and fitness.

The thought is that players will take their specialized fighter online where they can compete in player-versus-player ranked fights to secure their place atop of the “Onslaught Leader Board” and earn the chance to be immortalized in upcoming Bellator events live on-air.

The game will release on the Microsoft Xbox Live Arcade and Sony PlayStation Network platforms and will be available for download in summer 2012 for $15. “We made a conscious decision to select an optimal fighting game platform that had an endemic online player base and that would enable us to continuously service the game either through improvements in existing gameplay or through additional features, such as new moves, clothing options, venues, and weight classes,” said Dan Yang, General Manager of 345 Games. The publisher plans to be listening closely to the players through the games website, social network sites and game boards to decide the best ways to expand the game.

For those players who like to compete locally, players can take advantage of different gameplay modes including “Super Fight” mode, where gamers can choose their own fighter or pick one of Bellator’s established elite to play against a friend or CPU; “Create a Fighter” where players can modify their fighters looks, skill and moves as well as participate in training challenges and access the ‘Fight Lab’ to assign boosts; and “Championship Road”, where gamers can go up against the toughest Bellator fighters in feature fights and a single elimination tournaments inspired by Bellator’s Tournaments to earn a shot at the title.
