[Kickstarter page] I don’t cover many Kickstarter games, but there are gems which must be introduced to more gamers. I am talking about Mordhau, a “multiplayer medieval melee game featuring large open battles, siege engines, and mounted combat,” which got funded for USD 80,000 in less than 24 hours. Indie studio Triternion only has 10 developers working on the game!
Powered using Unreal Engine 4, Mordhau is primarily an online game which can see up to 64 players taking part in open battles and sieges, but players can also enjoy the game offline against bots with different personalities and difficulties. Mordhau features a skill-based free-flowing combat system that is easy to learn, but hard to master. Both mouse and controller are supported!
The melee combat system in Mordhau allows players to cut and thrust from a total of 240 different angles by flicking their mouse in the desired direction. Weapons can clash together, resulting in fast-paced exchanges and the occasional loss of limbs… Yes, you will be able to decapitate your foes, cut off their limbs, and watch throats being slit. There will be options to tone the gore down.
