Torn Banner Studios’ sword-and-sorcery-beheading multiplayer game, Mirage: Arcane Warfare, has seen its official release, now on Steam.

With an Open Beta available for those who pre-ordered the game, and its extensive updates that it brought, Torn Banner is hoping to capitalize on the runaway success that Chivalry: Medieval Warfare has seen since its release in 2012. Moving away from the “mud and blood” aesthetic to a more colorful palette means Torn Banner also has more freedom in character designs and abilities.

With 12 playable characters available at launch, plus a myriad of unique maps, Mirage: Arcane Warfare certainly has no shortage of content since its release on Steam, and will tout a 10% discount off the regular price of $29.99 USD (making it $26.99 USD) until June 21st.
