Here are 15 games like Mordhau you should check out:


15. Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Kingdom Come: Deliverance Gameplay

In this game, you play the role of Henry, a young man whose family and hometown are slaughtered by invaders, prompting you to go on a quest to get strong enough in order to avenge them. 

In order improve your fighting skills, you must train with NPCs in spars where swords clash, fight the Hungarian invaders, learn the right time to shoot someone with a bow, stab them with a dagger, or slash them with a sword, and repeat in order to gain new skills and perks.

There is also a fluid storyline with real life consequences for Henry and the world around him for you to do during your downtime from fighting. Just be careful not to accidentally strike any of your allies while showing off your skills or you’re in for a beating.

He’ll never see it coming…

The combat is up close and personal…very up close.


14. Valhall

Valhall Gameplay

If you ever wanted to have a battle royale with hundreds of other dead Vikings over Odin’s sword in order to prevent the end of the world, then this game is for you.

Arm yourself with the best and strongest blades, perhaps a sturdy shield and some good armor, and get down in the nitty gritty of the battle as the map slowly crumbles away, forcing everyone to engage in combat, so no one can win by just avoiding everyone.

If first person view is a bit to close and confusing for you, there is also the option to view the battle from a third person view in order to view your surroundings a bit better. Only you can stop the Ragnarök that is approaching.

That would be my reaction if someone approached me with a sword too.

The calm before the battle.

13. Mortal Online

Mortal Online Gameplay

If battle royales or playing av pre-made character doesn’t suit you, give this game where you can pick your own race, profession, and build your own house a try.

The combat is varied, from jousting on top of mounts, to head-shotting your enemies with arrows, to the traditional chop them into little pieces method with your sword. And if you get tired of slaying other players and NPCs, you can invest your time in things like magic, woodcutting, book publishing, customizing your armor, plus several more activities.

Just don’t die, or you will lose all of your hard-earned loot.

Little town, it’s a quiet village…

Little town, with its…little people.

12.  For Honor

For Honor Gameplay

Perhaps you don’t want to start a character from scratch, but want plenty of options. If so, check this game out. Choose from 18 different Heroes to play as, ranging from Vikings to Samurai on several different maps, against other players or do a story campaign.

The Heroes are customizable with options in emblems, armors and more, so you can truly make yours your own. There’s even a training mode so you can become the ultimate master of your weapon to take you up to the rank of Master.

It’s not about the rewards, but the fight itself.

Sword beats sword apparently.

Retreating is a perfectly acceptable strategy.

11. Vermintide 2

Vermintide 2 gameplay

This is a game worth looking into if you want a medieval co-op that you can play with your friends.

Choose from 5 different heroes with various career paths to hack, slash, shoot, or chop your way through the Chaos army and Skaven horde. Explore extensive maps while surviving a massive swarm, enjoy quests with various options, and celebrate getting all of the loot.

Teamwork is key if you wish to survive this game. Or killsteal if that’s the way you want to play it.

Hello Ugly

Now these are some R.O.U.S’s…

10. Hellraid

Hellraid Gameplay

The world is being invaded by demons, and it is up to you, a master demon slayer, to stop them. Create your own unique character with several customizable options in armor, clothes, and weaponry, then hack, slash, crush, cut, and otherwise mangle your foes with whatever weapon you choose to wield and grow in magic, combat, and agility skills.

If going at it alone seems a bit boring, then you can also invite some friends to come along with you to share in all the delicious fighting, no matter which one of the three modes you choose to play. Choose whichever fighting style suits you best, up close with a heavy sword and personal or ranged attacks with fireballs or throwing knives.

The main objective is to slay as many demons as you can and not die, so have fun.

Burn it with fire!

Dude, at least wear a shirt. I can see your innards!

9. Bannerman

Bannerman Gameplay

In this game, you take on the role of a swordsman who, after a massive battle, was left for dead and your only quest  is to go regain your lord’s banner which has been stolen.

You can’t hack and slash your way through this game. You have to carefully time your cut attacks, dodges, punches, and bashes and choose which engagements you want to partake in order not to get a game order.

This is not a noble quest you are going on this time. Enjoy the brutality of war.

This ain’t Robin Hood and Little John.

Now it’s your turn to take an arrow to the knee.


GORN gameplay

Going into the VR realm, GORN is a bloody, no-holds barred combat game where the only goal is to beat your opponent into a messy pulp.

Go barehanded, use giant maces, throw knives, or crush your enemies’ skulls with war hammers. There is no limit to the amount of carnage and mess you can create other than your own imagination and creativity.

Have fun with this stress reliever of a game.

I’d hate to be the one that has to clean this mess up.

I don’t think skin works that way.

7. Gladio

Gladio gameplay

Despite its name, Gladio is a gladiator simulator, not a game about the Final Fantasy XV character.

There are no fancy graphics in this game, just simple ragdoll opponents that you can slice into bloody little pieces with your sword.

You can set how your opponents act, depending on the type of armor they are wearing and the environment takes on damage the longer the fight drags on. Just make sure you aren’t the one getting chopped to bits.

The sparks are certainly flying.

Flawless Victory!

6. Mount & Blade: Warband

Mount & Blade: Warband gameplay

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as gathering troops and fighting other factions in order to become a ruler of a war-torn country.

On this battlefield, you aren’t limited to the weapons you own, for you can pick up any projectile and chunk it at your enemy to hopefully take off their head.

Or you can go the old-fashioned way and just stab them with your sword. Or you can run them through with a javelin. It’s your choice.

I think this ramp may be a bit crowded.

Don’t fire until you see the white of their eyes!

5. Mount & Blade: Bannerlord 2

Mount & Blade: Bannerlord 2 gameplay

In the sequel/prequel to Warband, your aim is to take over an empire torn apart by civil war and establish your own empire.

Siege cities with massive  engines, tear cities apart from the inside through a network of criminal activities, charge up to ramparts with your sword, or ram the gate open.

You can also slash opponents your enemy’s sword after you’ve slain them for extra irony. And if that is a bit too barbaric for you, there’s only diplomatic options that impact the whole world from peace treaties to treason pacts.

The future of Calradia is in your hands…

I think you’re going to need more people.

Such a stalwart figure…

4. Gloria Victis

Gloria Victis gameplay

In Gloria Victis, it’s all about using tactics in order to beat your opponents in order togain territory to build your towns and castles on.

The more you battle, the more skills and experience you earn in order to help you succeed. There is more to the battle than just swinging the sword or mace around, there is also some dodging and timing involved as well.

And if you get tired of fighting, there’s other career options like huntsman or blacksmith.

The land is yours for the taking if you really want it.

Sometimes a family is three knights and two bears.

I think this hold up went very wrong.

3. Life is Feudal MMO

Life is Feudal MMO gameplay

You play as a peasant in the land of Abella seeking to become something more, say like an emperor. Explore the extensive map to gain more resources to build your home, craft weapons, and communities.

You’ll have to fight a lot, which means it’s time to slash with your sword, shoot with an arrow, or bash with your shield.

If you wanted to ever live in the medieval era without risk of catching the Plague, this game is for you.

It’s like baseball, just without the ball, and trying to chop the opponent in half.

Rodeo clown is always an option if bull riding doesn’t work out

2. Skryim (with Credo Mod)

Skyrim (with Credo Mod) gameplay

You a visitor to the land of Skyrim when you get caught up in current events and get put on the chopping block for the crime of being at the wrong place at the wrong time, only to be rescued by a dragon attack.

Then you find out you’re the only one that can save the land, both from the dragon and ongoing civil war (lucky you).  You can go the old fashion way and kill everything with your sword, blast enemies with spells, or take the sneaky way and cut your enemies’ throats.

And with the Credo Mod, you can play Skyrim with a more realistic medieval look if that is your desire.

Just watch out for arrows to the knees.

Walk, walk, fashion baby.

Wonder what he’s looking at?

1. Chivalry: Medieval Warfare

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare gameplay

In this online game, the player is placed in the role of a fighter, whether it’s sieging castles, raiding villages, or fighting in an arena.

There are several weapons to choose from like axes, hammers, bows, and the ever-popular sword. The tight controls allow you to duck, slash, bash, roll, and shoot whenever you so desire. And don’t forget about the catapults to use during sieges.

Have fun storming the castle!

Don’t lose your head…
