The lights are on
Fans of vikings and customizable beards rejoice, as publisher Paradox Interactive and developer FatShark have announced War of the Vikings. Arriving in the first quarter of 2014, this PC title will place players in the middle of bloody 64-player battles.
Taking place in 9th and 10th century England, the game will pit vikings against the Saxons in wars that involve melee clashes and ranged combat with bows, spears, and throwing axes. Players will be able to customize their character with customizable taunts, beards, and battle perks.
More info will be shown off at Gamescom, but you can watch the teaser trailer below if you feel like watching a dude throw an axe into a tree.
