Along with these screenshots
, Paradox Interactive
announced the start of the alpha testing for War of the Vikings
, an all-new multiplayer game developed by Fatshark
and powered by the technology that drives Paradox's medieval squad combat title War of the Roses
. The Closed Alpha will drop players into the Pitched Arena game mode, a harsh, fast-paced battle with no respawns with victory going to the last Viking or Saxon standing. Two maps will be on display, with three character classes available to choose from, giving testers the chance to experience a wide range of available weapons, perks, and play styles.
The test will last until September 1, 2013, at 2:00 CEST.
