As I’m sat here enjoying my first cup of tea as a GamesHub resident - I’m taking a moment to reflect on the last couple of years and consider everything its taken for us to get here. Of course, none of it would have been possible if it hadn’t been for the fans who’ve followed and supported us right from the offset - when Bushido began its development as a mod for Chivalry back in 2012.

Fast-forward 2 and a half years, and we’re now at a really exciting point in the projects development. After long deliberation (actually not that long thinking about it) we’ve made the decision to quit our jobs and start working on the project full-time!

This means that the pace of development for Bushido is really going to be kicked up a notch. We’ve recently completed our migration to Unity 5, and will soon be able to share some of the new maps, models, weapons and animations that we’ve been working on over the last couple of months.

Greetings! Allow me to annoy you more with my posts. (´・ω・`)

I just wanted to throw out there that good sound and voice acting is absolutely crucial to the game. One of the reasons why Chivalry is so great is because of the HIGHLY immersive combat sounds, the sounds of the surroundings and the stellar voice acting. I just wanted to say that I hope you guys keep this in mind. Which I'm sure you do,
since judging by your latest screenshots and models, I don't have to worry about great visuals either. (⌒_⌒)

I was wondering though, what plans do you have for voice acting? Are you planning to have the dialogue in Japanese or in "English with a Japanese accent", like Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior has?

Keep up the great work!

Hey DELTA38g!

We agree that good voice acting is important. Our idea was always to record two sets of audio, and then let people choose which one they want to use - one recorded in Japanese, the other in English :) !

Oh cool
Do you mean that both would be in game and you'll be able to choose which one you want in the options?

Hey guys,

Just had a thought for the future or a sequel game:

Your game + RTS elements similar to Natural Selection 2 crossed with Stronghold Crusader / Command and Conquer.

So basically, Shogun vs Shogun, 1 player on each team is the Shogun and has an RTS screen similar to Natural Selection 2. Researches upgrades and commands units.

The rest play as normal with the first person sword fights and have to capture resource towers, destroy enemy fortifications and try to destroy the enemy base similar to NS2 and Team Fortress 2.

Players are rewarded for following objectives, capturing points and getting kills and can upgrade their kit. Players get better armour, different units available to them and the battles get more and more intense as the round continues.

Various different classes which become unlockable as the game goes on with heavier units / tanks becoming available later in the game.

Possible Classes
Soldier class, average weapon selection, medium speed, medium health.
Engineer class who can repair armour and build fortifications / defenses.
Tank class, tall 7 foot character model, carries heavy weapons, large health.
Espionage class, smallish guy, low health, can scale walls, fast in combat.
Archer class, very low health, ranged weapons.

Just some ideas. Would be wonderful to have an RTS/FPS hybrid with swordplay elements! Loved NS2 and Chivalry and you guys are making something awesome too, so keep doing what you're doing :)

On behalf of all Samurai lovers and this particular period in Japanese history I want to say thank you. I am so hyped for this game, it looks promising and so far I love everything about it. You guys are awesome! I plan on getting this game day 1.

I do have a few questions as I have not been able to find a FAQ or Q&A (No need to answer any or all of these but anything would be much appreciated!)

1. Will there be multiple fighting styles to use? I.e. Two swords, one handed, two handed, high stance, low stance, ect.

2. Is this game single player and will there be more than just 1 on 1 combat?

3. Will there be customization?

4. Release date? Should we expect a 2015 release of some sort?

Thank you again, Please let me know if there's anyway I can support development. Keep up the great work you guys are heroes!

Hi Dcdshadow1 - glad to hear that you're excited about the game!

To answer your questions:

1) Yes, the intention is that there will be 1, 2 handed weapons, duel wielding, spear and bow combat... although we're only really working on 2 handed combat with a katana at this stage (its a lot of work to do!).

2) Its multiplayer only and we're hoping to have teams of players (perhaps maxed at 24 players per server)

3) Yes - lots! You'll be able to create your own samurai avatar.

4) We hope 2015 but there is still a lot of work to be done!

Thanks :) !
