Chivalry 2’s day one player count “has exceeded even our highest expectations”

If you’ve been looking forward to slashing your enemies with sword and halberd, or perhaps just throwing a fiery chicken at them, you may have to wait in line: medieval multiplayer game Chivalry II is out today, and it seems popular. It’s so popular, in fact, that servers have barely been able to keep up, and players have faced login errors and other connection problems.

It’s a bit hit or miss right now in Chivalry 2. Our day one tests have sometimes resulted in login errors, while other times we’ve been able to drop into big matches in a matter of seconds. Developer Torn Banner Studios says it’s resolved the login errors on all platforms, but it’s continuing to work on other matchmaking issues that players have reported.

“The number of players launching the game today has exceeded even our highest expectations,” the studio wrote in a tweet. “We will do our best to ensure you all can get in and play as soon as possible as our top priority.”
