Half-Life 2 mod Age of Chivalry to make the move to commercial game

We have seen many stand alone commercial games that started out as free mods or total conversions. The latest such news about such a move comes from the mod team behind the popular Half-Life 2 mod Age of Chivalry. The popular mod which has a medieval setting and concentrates on melee combat is now making the more to a stand alone commercial title titled Chivalry: Battle for Agatha.

The stand alone game will use Epic's Unreal Development Kit (the non-source code version of Unreal Engine 3) with the team promising "More weapons. A more fluid movement system. Character customization" and other new features. This also mean there won't be any more updates to the Half-Life 2 mod version with the team saying, "Age of Chivalry has been hindered by some limitations inherent in Source and would result in not being able to deliver that content the way we want to." There's no word on when Chivalry: Age of Agatha will be released. You can check out a trailer for the game after the jump:
