Chivalry 2: Release time, how to preload, install file size, system requirements, more

Epic medieval battles are back with Chivalry 2, and here's everything you need to know before the release, including preload times, system requirements, download size, and more.

If you like the sound of clashing swords, and the sight of countless flaming arrows across the sky, then you probably can't wait to play Chivalry 2.

The iconic medieval battle simulator is getting its sequel almost 10 years since the release of the original game, promising to bring never-before-seen realism in the genre.

Developed by Torn Banner Studios and published by Tripwire Interactive, Chivalry 2 builds upon the beloved gameplay of the original, while aiming to enhance the experience with improvements and numerous new mechanics.

The "first-person slasher", how developers call it, releases this June, and it is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.

Here's everything you need to know before the release.

As we've seen above, the game is not really particularly big and you will be able to download it rather quickly.

For a long time, the Epic Games Store didn't have the ability to pre-load the game, something many has criticized as a basic functionality lacking.

This problem is no more, as the Epic Games Store now allows for pre-ordered games to be pre-loaded.

When the game becomes available for pre-load, you will be able to download it just by clicking on the download button in your Epic Game client, and that's it.
