Greetings to the Xbox community! I’m Laurent Mercure from Chainsawesome Games and I’m excited to finally announce our release date for Knight Squad 2. Mark your calendar; our explosive medieval board game is ready to arrive on Xbox One on April 14 and you can pre-order today here.
Since our first demo in the summer of 2020, we’ve shared a ton of information about the new features that await Knight Squad players in the sequel. We revealed Payload Mode, Painter Mode, Minion Master Mode, and a ton of new power-ups, but we’ve kept one big addition a secret.
In Knight Squad 2, you will have the chance to participate in a tournament. We believe this will be the most popular way to play.
Needless to say, since the release of the first Squad of knights in 2015 we saw a lot of people playing our 8 player dungeon brawler. We have noticed that more often than not, friends spend a good deal of their game time together just deciding which of the many game modes to play. Too many times we’ve seen people play one mode (it’s still Last Man Standing) because it’s simpler that way, akin to watching a binge-watching TV series instead of trying that new movie. that your friends have told you about. We all love our game modes and even for us it’s sometimes hard to choose.
We also wondered why is Last Man Standing mode so popular? Part of what makes this mode intense is one of the few modes that isn’t on a timer. A player who follows the scoreboard with a big zero can make an exciting comeback and the tension builds as the game progresses. Could all modes benefit from this tension of construction?
All of these thoughts brought Tournament Mode to life.
In Tournament mode, you and your friends take part in a series of random matches with score-based objectives and the first player to achieve three wins is crowned the champion. You can play it in Free-for-all, in Duos or in Squads and the 13 game modes are adapted to adapt to Tourney. For example, a soccer match will end automatically when a team reaches a score of 2 and a Gladiator match will end when a player reaches a score of 500.
It’s simple, it’s hectic, it usually ends in under 10 minutes and that’s exactly what Knight Squad needed.
