    On April 14 join the Grand Tourney in Knight Squad 2

    Greetings Xbox community! I’m Laurent Mercure from Chainsawesome Games and I’m thrilled to finally announce our release date for Knight Squad 2 . Mark your calendar; our explosive medieval party game is ready to reach on Xbox One on April 14 and you will pre-order today the following.

    Since our first demo through the Summer of 2020, quite a bit has been shared by us of information regarding the brand new features awaiting Knight Squad players in the sequel. The Payload has been revealed by us mode, the Painter mode, the Minion Master mode and a huge amount of new power-ups but we kept one big addition a secret.

    In Knight Squad 2 , you’ll reach compete in a Tourney. We feel just like it’s likely to be the hottest solution to play.

    Knight Squad 2

    Obviously, because the release of the initial Knight Squad in 2015, we’ve watched a whole large amount of people play our 8-player dungeon-brawler. We pointed out that more than seldom, friends spend adequate their game time together just deciding which of the numerous game modes to play. Way too many times we’ve seen folks playing only 1 mode (It’s always Last Man Standing) because it’s simpler this way, much like binge-watching a TV group of trying that new movie friends and family told you about instead. We love our game modes and for all of us even, it’s sometimes difficult to select.

    We asked ourselves, how come the final Man Standing mode so popular? Section of why is this mode intense could it be being mostly of the modes that’s not on a timer. A new player trailing the scoreboard with a large zero could make a thrilling comeback and the strain just increases because the match progresses. Could all the modes reap the benefits of that building tension?

    All the Tourney was brought by this thinking mode alive.

    In Tourney mode, you as well as your friends compete by way of a group of randomized matches with score-based objectives and the initial player to assemble three victories is crowned the champion. It could be played by you in Free-for-all, in Duos or in Squads and all 13 game modes are adapted to match Tourney. For instance, a match of Soccer will end automatically whenever a team reaches a score of 2 and a match of Gladiator will end whenever a player reaches a score of 500.

    It’s simple, it’s hectic, it usually wraps up within ten minutes and it’s just what Knight Squad needed.

    We can’t await the Xbox community to jump in Knight Squad 2 on April 14 and witness glorious Tourneys. Be sure you pre-order the overall game, join our Discord and gather friends and family. Stay awesome!
