Every summer, gamers go through a debilitating drought. The well of releases worth playing slows to a trickle and many are left to do nothing more than drool over the titles planned for release next holiday season. It's during this time that many gamers come to ModDB to satiate their gaming appetites. They search high and low for something that will pique their interest.
While the MOTY Awards provide a wealth of choices among mods and indie games, they usually overlook gaming gems within our community released in the first half of the year. To combat this oversight, ModDB has launched the Summer of Mods & Indies event! Featuring exclusive content from all the major releases of the last 6 months, gamers are bound to find something to quench their thirst.
Summer of Mods & Indies features Age of Chivalry. It's melee done right.

So, you’ve never heard of or played Age of Chivalry before? Well let’s start from the beginning then… Age of Chivalry is a first person online medieval combat experience with a heavy focus on melee combat and objective-based team play. That is, most of the game consists of you taking a viciously spiked mace, or equally violent medieval weaponry and quite literally bludgeoning your opponent repeatedly in the face until he dies a very messy and gruesome death. Alternatively, if you really want to get messy you could always cut his head clean off (yes, we mean decapitation) or just entirely shred him with a catapult. Don’t worry though, the games not all about gore, there is plenty of strategy and depth in the combat to keep you satisfied in-between your spurts of bloodlust.
The game is a first person medieval combat experience that revolutionizes the genre of FPS games by thrusting the player into the middle of medieval battlefields complete with swords, armour, bows, catapults, siege towers, massive castles, sprawling outdoor landscapes and up to 32 player online battles. Ever wanted to prove to your friends who would have been the greatest warrior of all times? That’s exactly what Age of Chivalry is all about, allowing you to deliver a nice friendly medieval-style beat-down to your friend who thinks he’s a gamer. Or perhaps together you shall defy your enemies and lay waste to the battlefield in an epic clash of steel and valour. Either way, you’re bound to have a great time while playing Age of Chivalry!
