En garde! New swordfighting pack available!

It’s been a long time in the works, involving a whole load of rewritten code in areas we didn’t expect, and a complete new version of Moviestorm, but finally the sword fighting pack is here!  The pack includes two characters, the swordsman and swordswoman, a collection of swords and shields, and a huge collection of animations (see below). And, to recreate that authentic Ren Faire atmosphere, there’s a medieval tent and flagpoles.

You can buy the pack for 2000MSP, or if you only need it for a short time, you can rent it for 200MSP a month.

To help you get the best from the pack, here’s a short video tutorial introducing you to what it can do.

Get it from the marketplace now!

For best effect, we recommend combining it with the medieval packs from Moddingstorm, which include more costumes, hairstyles, beards, horses and a castle. They’re available together as the Medieval Addon Collection, which saves you roughly 25% over buying them individually.

Great job guys, this looks terrific.  Was going to go out tonight but I think I may play with Moviestorm instead.  Thanks for killing my social life! :-D
