Feudal Rage: War Of The Vikings’ New Berserker Class

Wouldn't it be great to do something with such terrifying, trance-like fury that your performance creates a new word in a language you don't even speak? Berserkers were Norse warriors that did exactly that. That means you might want to try them out in War of the Vikings, the melee combat multiplayer game. There's a video of the freely available new class below, and I…

Interview: Adding Shieldmaidens To War Of The Vikings

War of the Vikings, Paradox Interactive's sequel to the gritty and gruesome War of the Roses, is about to receive its first expansion, a relatively modest addition that adds one new class: the Shieldmaiden. Executive producer Gordon Van Dyke, a veteran of multiplayer development who can trace his history back to some of the early Battlefield games, says it's an opportunity to not only shake…

Ladies’ Might: War Of The Vikings Add Shieldmaidens

Tch! So much for realism. Those silly sausages at Fatshark have only gone dragged their historical man-murdering simulator War of the Vikings into the realms of folklore and mythology by adding fe-male warriors. See, most accounts of Viking 'shieldmaidens' come from folklore and legend, with scant few historical records of them, so I don't even know what they're thinking. That some might like to play…

Hut, Hut, Vike: War Of The Vikings Out Now

If history has taught me anything, it's that Vikings were a complex, multifaceted people splintered into an incredible number of micro-cultures spread far and wide across Europe thanks to extremely versatile wooden longboats. If videogames have taught me anything, it's that Vikings loved WAAAAAAAAAAAR. War of the Vikings, then, represents the culmination of all my scholarly studies, what with its "historically inspired" Viking Age setting…

Impressions: War Of The Vikings

I’d never seen a shield quite so fancy. It belongs to Fraser Brown, a Scotsman in the guise of a Viking, and he’s extremely proud of the design. He should be. It’s a beautiful thing and a brave one too. Brightly marking him out on the battlefield, the shield makes him a target, like an officer wearing a medal as big as a walrus. I…

Norsey Weekend: War Of The Vikings Free Weekend

What are you doing this weekend, readers? That's just a general question you should feel free to answer in the comments, btw. I like hearing about your plans. If you feel the need to acquire something to do, then you might want to think about dropping into War Of The Vikings. Fatshark's beard-and-beating sim is still a Steam Early Access title, but they've decided to…

More Afjordable? War Of The Vikings Early Access

Fatshark is hastily putting a final lick of paint onto the longboats, tightening the braids on their beards, and making sure all the fish has plenty of salt for the people who they hope will buy into Early Access of War of the Vikings on Steam. It's their follow-up to the generally well received War of the Roses, and as the title suggests, the battles…

Customisable Beards: War Of The Vikings

I don't know if I'd be more disappointed reading 'customisable beards' as 'customisable bears' or vice versa. Either way, elaborately braided face furniture is the stand-out feature of the newly announced War of the Vikings. Or perhaps it's the brutal melee hacking that should give this newly announced game in the War Of The [blank] series an identity of it own. Thrown weapons, including the…
