Close combat melee games

Post by Ferox » 02 May 2018, 14:39

So while we are all here because we think jk2 is one of the best (or the best) game(s) ever made, i wondered if u guys are playing any other melee combat games. While there are several games in making such as

Mordhau:

and Warbanner 2

I wondered if there are any good close combat games that are actually out yet? Im thinking of buying Chivalary but before buying anything random I wanted to ask here and see if u got any advice or any other good game that I do not know of (e.g. I didnt know anything about Mordhau coming up either until yday).

Did you mis-refer to Bannerlord as Warbanner 2? :P Well, it is pretty close to both Warband and Banner.

Chivalry is fun, but from what I've heard the competitive community has become a little ridiculous.

Mount & Blade Warband has a great single- and multiplayer, but especially the singleplayer. Here's the first result for "warband 2v2", seems pretty interesting, especially once the shields break. There's other more classic team game modes too, as well as Duel. Highly moddable.

Toribash is close combat and invisible skill ceiling, really cool, but hard to learn.

I've played it yeah. It's not much like JK2, although you can use the mouse to speed up and slow down swings. It's an FPS with swords so the movement is pretty responsive. You can do combos, but not like how you're used to in JK2.
