Knight Squad 2, the follow-up to Chainsawesome Games’ chaotic arcade party game enjoyed by more than 1.8 million players, charges into battle Wednesday, April 14 for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One with Xbox Series X|S compatibility, and Steam for PC. A free-to-play preview, Knight Squad 2 Trials, also launches today on Steam.
A training ground to prepare for the full release, Knight Squad 2 Trials provides squires a place to hone their chivalric skills in Battle Royale mode. Clash with other competitors wielding authentic medieval armaments, including ray runs, boomerangs, and magic spells until only one warrior remains standing. Trials willalso allow participants to join lobbies from Knight Squad 2 and get a taste of all the action on offer in the main game.
The full Knight Squad 2 experience sports more than 13 competitive multiplayer modes for up to eight players to revel in. 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 Soul Hunter or go it alone as a solo cavalier and harvest enemy souls before delivering them back to base for points. Then, for a classic bit of fun, enjoy 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.
Knight Squad 2 builds on the beloved framework of its predecessor to deliver an absorbing and varied multiplayer experience that puts compelling new spins on familiar favorites. Easy to pick up and enjoy with friends and family of all ages and skill levels, Knight Squad 2 aims to bring people together in the way that only a mountain of vicious combat-filled minigames can.
