If there is one thing that I’m really into it would have to be these hack-n-slash multiplayer games that seem to be in abundance on the PC. Chivalry will always be my main jam, but I have a lot of love for the Mount & Blade series as well, which brings us to the recently-released War of the Vikings. War of the Vikings was a game that was in Steam Early Access for quite a while, but finally got a full-on release this week for $5 less than the Early Access asking price.
I feel like the world needs to play these games more, because part of the reason to even bother with War of the Vikings right now while War of the Roses is still free-to-play is that there are just more people playing War of the Vikings right now. that means that you’ll most likely have an easier time hopping onto a server with decent ping and getting your kill on. So here, I made a video walking you through some of the basics of War of the Vikings. You get to watch me play a round of Team Deathmatch while giving you a cursory overview of how the game is played as well as some of the ins and outs. You can get a feel for it and, you know, decide if it sucks or not from an 11-minute video!
