Company: Torn Banner
TORONTO, CANADA, May 23, 2017— Torn Banner Studios, creators of the popular first-person medieval melee slasher Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, are excited to announce that Mirage: Arcane Warfare is now available on Steam for Windows PC. The skill-based multiplayer FPS captures the true destructive power of magic and melee combat with the tight control of a first-person shooter.

Taking the ultraviolence and complex melee combat of Chivalry to the next level, Torn Banner provides Mirage’s mystical warriors an arsenal of magic and swords to annihilate their adversaries. The long-awaited release of the online multiplayer action game transports players to an Arabian-inspired fantastical world, where a full-scale war has erupted over the destiny of Bashrahn and the powerful magic of the Jinn.

To celebrate the launch and welcome fans to the mystical realm of Mirage: Arcane Warfare, Torn Banner is offering players a 10% discount for both editions of Mirage and has released new images and two exciting new trailers for the game.

Decapitations, severed limbs and blood-soaked environments throw players into the thrill of warfare in the action-packed Launch Gameplay Trailer:

An Animated Lore Trailer draws players into the story of Mirage, telling the origins of the battle to control the fate of the magical Jinn:

Torn Banner President Steve Piggott says this is what players will love about Mirage: “Mirage’s complex combat system puts complete control in the player’s hands. Swordplay and spellcasting are built together into a system where you can always both defend or attack. We can’t wait to see what players discover as they explore the depth of this world and the new fighting system”.

In Mirage: Arcane Warfare, the calm of a strange fantasy world is shattered by ruthless civil war. Warriors armed with steel and magic bring violence and death as they do battle across a fantastical Arabian and Persian-inspired setting of desert sands, market bazaars and grand palaces. Built using the powerful new capabilities of Unreal Engine 4, Mirage: Arcane Warfare presents visually stunning backdrops to some viscerally brutal multiplayer combat.
