Mordhau, Indie Medieval Fighting Game Gains New Gameplay Video
(Last Updated On: March 15, 2017)

You know the spicy meme “end him rightly!”, right? Well a new game called Mordhau by Triternion lets players battle others in a semi-realistic medieval setting with sharp and blunt weapons, and of course sword-pommels. The game is currently set to come out for PC.

You know what, memes were even created before the Interwebs came to existence. In fact, there’s an actual manuscript teaching fellow knights and warriors how to “end an opponent rightly” by throwing a sword’s pommel to finish him.

Although throwing a sword-pommel  at an opponent would not kill them, unless it was thrown extremely hard, the meme managed to find its way into a new game, Mordhau. It was only a matter of time before the spicy meme made popular by Skallagrim (who has a Skyrim mod) would find its way into a game, allowing player to end an opponent rightly.

The game Mordhau by indie devs Triternion managed to pass its Kickstarter goal within 24 hours and is now receiving extra content by the devs at this very moment. The game’s official description sits below:

Mordhau is an upcoming multiplayer medieval melee game with a strong emphasis on skill-based combat.”

Honestly the game looks really nice to be a small indie project, and from the videos we can see there’s an actual game that can be played and no pre-made cut-scenes that are edited together to make it seem like there is a playable game.

With that said, you can check out the much older video of Mordhau showing character customization and explaining how armor works against specific types of weapons.

The latest trailer containing the “end him rightly” meme, or the pommel of destruction sits below, which also contains gameplay footage.

If the devs can fix up the animations and make them look more smooth I think that Mordhau is headed in the right direction. For more information regarding the multiplayer medieval melee game you can head on over to mordhau.com.

  • I’m not the only one thinking this looks a LOT like a cheaper version of For Honor, am I?

      For honor is a fighting game that uses canned animations. You choose a target and attack them, but that’s the end of your control. In mordhau, you can manipulate your attacks past enemy guards, throw the timing off and do a multitude of things that aren’t possible in FH.

      Mostly, FH is a fighter game like Street Fighter or Mortal Combat, whereas Mordhau is much more similar to Chivalry: MW or Mount and blade. Also let me know when for honor adds horse please
