Whoever spread the terrible myth about the age of chivalry being all about politeness, noble warriors and laying down across a puddle so your lady’s horse can cross it obviously never anticipated Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. It’s a brutal, bloody and often crudely hilarious multiplayer melee-fest.

In the video below, we take on one of the ‘Team Objective’ modes. Can the Agatha Knights defend their village and their rightful King, or will the traitorous Masonic Order win the day? (You probably shouldn’t ask me; in the exhilaration of killing a guy in spectacular fashion I manage to confuse defeat with victory at the very end of the video.)
