MORDHAU, the 64 player medieval fighter is coming to consoles

by: Elliot -


Multiplayer medieval slasher MORDHAU was initially released on PC in 2019 but is now making it’s way to consoles. If you’ve dreamed of sending the limbs of your enemies flying, then your chance is coming up. If you’re unfamiliar with MORDHAU, it’s the game where you “create a mercenary and fight in brutal battles where you will experience fast-paced combat, castle sieges, cavalry charges, and more.” All of the familiar game modes will be present in the console version. Invasion is the large-scale battles, having players either attack or defend. Frontline is a territory-style match, and Horde has you attack or defend against enemies. Those modes will have up to 64 players at the same time. Of course, there are more minor scaled fights with modes like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Skirmish. Cross-play will be allowed, but only between consoles; PC will not be able to join.

Main Features Include:

  • Massive battles: From small-scale engagements to 64-player all-out war in modes such as Frontline and Invasion.
  • Cooperative & offline play: Fight waves of enemies alongside your friends in the cooperative Horde mode, or practice your skills offline against AI.
  • Free-form melee and ranged combat: Gain complete control over your character and attacks and develop your unique style.
  • In-depth character customization: Sculpt your face, create your weapon from parts, and pick out individual armor pieces to create the perfect warrior.
  • Huge arsenal of weapons & equipment: Take on enemies with a greatsword, rain arrows from above, or even sit back and build fortifications.
  • Fight anywhere: Experience cavalry charges, fight on ladders, and operate siege engines such as the catapult and ballista.
  • Visceral and gory combat: Feel the impact of every blow, and send limbs flying as you wreak havoc upon your foes. (Blood & gore are optional)
  • Believable fights: A game where fights look believable, MORDHAU strikes a balance between gameplay and realism.

No official date has been given for the console release of MORDHAU.
