Check Out the Pre-Alpha Medieval Combat from Mordhau

/ 2 years ago

Team Mordhau just released a new gameplay video for their upcoming game Mordhau. Having just exceeded its Kickstarter goal by a huge margin, the game is well on its way to being completed. To celebrate, the new video shows off pre-alpha melee combat mechanics, and they look pretty awesome! Powered by Unreal Engine 4, the game is looking already had slick graphics, and the combat looks pretty brutal too thanks to its physics and skill based gameplay.

“Mordhau is a multiplayer medieval fighting game where fights range from duels all the way to large, open battles of up to 64 players with horses, siege engines, and castles to be stormed. It features a skill-based free-flowing combat system that is easy to learn, but hard to master.”

“6 minutes video footage from the Mordhau Pre-Alpha version, showing off the melee combat in duels and smaller skirmishes. Support us on kickstarter!”

The game will be released on Steam for Windows PCs. Other operating systems and platforms might follow post-release, but there are no concrete plans at the moment. Find out more on Kickstarter!


Your blade will cut exactly where it looks like it should. Weapons can clash together, resulting in fast-paced exchanges and the occasional loss of hands.


A game where fights look believable, Mordhau strikes a balance between gameplay and realism. Ballerinas and circus performers are replaced by carefully designed combat mechanics. We are confident that our system solves most of the common problems of this genre, and is also heaps of fun.


Decapitate your foes, cut off their arms, hands and legs and watch throats being slit while they gurgle their last breath away. And for those who prefer a more family-friendly visual effect, we will offer options to tone the gory visuals down a notch.
