New Xbox Game Pass Game Increases 500k Players After Release

This week saw the release of the first batch of games included in the Xbox Game Pass for the month of October, and subscribers have already brought in a large number.

This week, Torn Banner Studios confirmed that the medieval multiplayer game Chivalry 2 had gained over 500,000 new players since it was made available on Xbox Game Pass.

This is great news for the game’s community, as a cross-platform play between Xbox, PlayStation, and PC is a major selling point.

Amid this week’s massive influx of Chivalry 2 players, Torn Banner tweeted its excitement at “welcoming so many new knights to the field.”

It’s also worth noting that Chivalry 2 arrived on Xbox Game Pass on a Tuesday, meaning that more players should jump into the hectic brawls this weekend.

Considering the game’s major “Reinforced Update” was also released on the same day as the Xbox Game Pass launch, the timing couldn’t have been better.

The Katars are the first dual-wielded weapons in Chivalry 2, and the update also adds a new Hippodrome arena for players to compete in.

It is important to note that crossplay only exists in the game with regards to general matchmaking, so Xbox Game Pass subscribers.

What this means is that you’ll face off against players using a variety of platforms, though you won’t be able to join forces with those using anything other than an Xbox device.
