Knight Squad 2, the follow-up to Chainsawesome Games chaotic arcade party game charges into battle on the 14th of April. Players get access to it on the Nintendo Switch, PC on Steam and the Epic Games Store, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility.
A free-to-play preview version, Knight Squad 2 Trials, is also joining the fray and has launched on Steam.
A training ground to prepare for the full release, Trials provides squires a place to hone their chivalric skills in Battle Royale mode. Clash with other competitors wielding authentic medieval armaments, including laser guns, boomerangs, and proximity mines until only one warrior remains standing. Trials will also allow participants to join lobbies made by players in the full game and get a taste of all the action on offer.
The full Knight Squad 2 experience sports more than 13 competitive multiplayer modes for up to eight players. Fight in a free-for-all foray to gain control of a massive weapon and unleash its devastating power in Juggernaut mode.
Team up in Painter, a graffiti turf war where the aim is to colour coat more of the arena than opponents before the clock runs out. Then, for a classic bit of fun, unwind with a leisurely match of Soccer while dodging bazooka rockets, oncoming arrow fire, and whatever else the other side can muster while chasing down the ball.
Form your squad in Knight Squad 2
Knight Squad 2 builds on the beloved framework of its predecessor to deliver an absorbing and varied multiplayer experience that puts compelling spins on familiar pastimes and introduces an element of chaos with wild variables like slippery floors and exploding bodies.
Easy to pick up and enjoy with friends and family of all ages and skill levels, it also aims to bring people together in the way that only a mountain of vicious combat-filled minigames can.
“Today is a huge day for us! not only are we announcing the game for Nintendo Switch and revealing our release date of 14 April, but we’re launching our free preview version, Knight Squad 2 Trials, on Steam. So join us for some Battle Royale action today while we gear up for next month!”
