War of the Vikings release date announced


War of the Vikings launches on 15th April, Paradox Interactive has announced.

Fatshark's close combat game is currently available as a Steam Early Access title. Executive producer Gordon Van Dyke will host a live stream of the game tonight at 7pm UK time on Twitch to show off the latest version. The video is below, for your convenience.

War of the Vikings is the follow up to War of the Roses and uses the technology that fuelled the medieval squad combat game. In War of the Vikings you create a warrior and sack England as a Norseman or defend it as a Saxon. There's a focus on close quarters combat, authentic settings, weaponry and customisation and 64-player battles.
