Fear the Beard: Fatshark Announces ‘War of the Vikings,’ Now With 100% More Throwing Axe

by Joseph Leray

Paradox Interactive and Fatshark have announced “War of the Vikings,” a follow-up to last year’s competitive multiplayer hack-and-slash “War of the Roses.”

Like its predecessor, “War of the Vikings” is a third-person combat game with a heavy focus on hand-to-hand fisticuffs and period-appropriate costumes, similar to TaleWorlds’ “Mount & Blade” series (also published by Paradox, incidentally).

“Vikings” also includes “a variety of beard options,” a videogame feature I didn’t realize I wanted until just now.
