Age of Chivalry is a total conversion for Half-Life 2 currently being developed by Team Chivalry. We are a close group of friends who are dedicated to creating a fun story driven multiplayer experience set in a fantasy world in the medieval ages. We are creating a fast paced and fun first person melee combat system that will take the player to a new level of immersion. The players will be able to take part in sieges, town raids and open war in a story driven game. Our goal is to let the players write the history of the game as the teams battle it out over a sequence of user controlled map cycles depending on the victor. We want to take the overall experience to a new level of fun. All of our members have a solid modding background and we hope that you support our modification as it grows and develops!
Update: Release has been postponed until tomorrow (Friday, October 3rd) due to technical difficulties. When released, you will be able to find the mods in the "uninstalled" section of your "My games" tab within Steam.
This Thursday is big. For the first time ever, mods will be delivered through Valve's digital distribution platform thus opening up new opportunities to both mods and Steam alike. Five different mods were selected to be integrated using Steamworks which helps streamline the delivery, installation, and update process. Some of the mods will even have other features like achievements and stat tracking, with others gaining added functionality in future updates. The majority of mods selected also have significant content updates, so be sure give them all a shot. Automatic installation means you have no excuse not to!
For the uninitiated, here's a quick look at the five mods that are the first to make their way onto the Steam platform:
A story-based, objective-driven multiplayer melee mod. Siege castles, raid towns and execute peasants using an extensive FPS melee combat system. Ensure victory in a campaign that spans over several maps.
Car combat on the Source engine. Rain down destruction on your opponents in the form of high explosives and machine gun fire. A wide variety of maps with plenty of destructibility. Almost no learning curve makes this mod easy to pick up and play.
A realistic modern warfare shooter set within the middle east. Play as conventional military forces or the underground insurgents. Employ tactics and teamwork to capture objectives while holding out against enemy reinforcements.
The best Half-Life 2 co-op experience out there. Melded together from a smattering of smaller co-op mods. Play through custom campaigns or the entire Half-Life 2 campaign cooperatively with new features, weapons and NPCs.
The most popular Zombie mod on the Source engine. One person starts as the undead and gains new teammates with every survivor killed. Survivors must hold out against diminishing odds and constant paranoia... or find a really good hiding place.
ModDB extends its congratulations to all the mod teams involved. We hope that this allows for even more people to experience and enjoy the products of your creative endeavors.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Age of Chivalry. We love games like Half-Life 2 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
