"Mordhau is not for those who want a multiplayer experience that’s easy to drop into and utterly destroy foes. However, the joy of mastering its challenging system and the memorable moments of violent ballet make these engrossing battles unique."

"Mordhau is tough, violent, beautiful, and doesn't pull its punches. Despite an intense learning curve that could be better alleviated with more tutorials or better practice tools, its supreme swordplay and combat mechanics eventually outshine any initial frustration. The scale of battle is overwhelming and chaotic, but there's a definite sense to all the nonsense that, once you uncover it, gives you an incredible rush every time you go toe-to-toe with the enemy--even if you don't come out the other side intact."

"In the end, Mordhau is a goofy yet realistic medieval combat game that caters to a ton of different players. Many will grind games in order to best perfect their skills with their favorite weapon. Then there’s me, who literally runs around the battlefield playing a musical instrument that adds absolutely zero gameplay value to the team. That’s the beauty of Mordhau — the individual moments tend to outweigh any of the design flaws or technical glitches that are present."

"Mordhau is a complex medieval melee game that’s tough on beginners but satisfying to master, especially in one-on-one duels. Its robust character creator allows for plenty of different playstyles, and its large, varied maps will mean no two rounds feel the same. A long list of game modes means you’re guaranteed to find at least one you love, and its 64-player battles in Frontline mode are true spectacles, dismembered limbs and all. A few technical problems and a couple of unbalanced maps will hopefully get better with time, but it’s already bloody good fun."

"If you’ve got the patience and dexterity to take full advantage of its melee combat, Mordhau can be a real treat. Especially in the Frontline mode, slashing and stabbing across its beautiful and well-designed maps was really entertaining once I got my feet under me. The high skill cap and lack of good supporting roles can make it feel tiring at times, but it’s mostly worth it for the satisfaction that comes with increasing mastery."

"Rarely has a battlefield seemed more glaringly true than in Mordhau. Demanding, intense, brutal, gory and devilishly fun, the title of Triternion literally plunges the player into epic battles where only your knowledge of your equipment and the reading of the opponent's movements will make the difference during a duel. With a long-term progression curve, Mordhau does not forget to be intuitive enough to make the novice understand that the possibilities are numerous and the fights precise. Obviously, we may regret the rather few cards and the objectives not always very interesting, but if the philosophy of the game tempts you, you should indulge in it with pleasure for a large number of hours."

"Mordhau's incredibly satisfying melee combat and slapstick ultra-violence make for a riotously good time on the medieval battlefield, though a lack of maps for the best mode and lingering technical issues are cracks in the armor of this otherwise thrilling multiplayer slasher."

FREEDOM OF CHOICE
Create your suit of armor: pick from gloves, arms, shoulders, chest pieces, legs, boots, helmets, and more. Color each piece to your liking and select a metal tint. Be anything from a viking to a crusader, or even a sharpshooting archer.

SKILL-BASED MELEE COMBAT
Chain your attacks into combos, punish your opponents with quick counters, push them away with kicks, trick them with feints, grip your polearm closer to the head, use real halfswording techniques -- and much, much more.

ENDLESS CUSTOMIZATION
Smith your sword out of individual pieces: pick from blades, crossguards and grips. Want a mace instead? No problem, pick your head and handle and choose the wood type. There are thousands of possible combinations.

ALWAYS VARIED BATTLES
Our combat system is designed for fights ranging from duels all the way to large open battles of up to 64 players with castles to be stormed, and fields to be covered in blood.
