Preview: War of the Vikings | Stevivor

Stevivor's Steve Wright writes, "Stevivor met up with Fatshark Games’ Gordon Van Dyke last week to talk all things Viking ahead of Paradox’s War of the Vikings’ first alpha test, taking place at the same time as Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.

"Just as they travelled around Europe planning for War of the Roses, Fatshark consulted extensively with a Viking archaeologist to get the tone of the 64-player multiplayer game just right. That means Vikings – more of an ancient profession than a race, by the way (so I’m not sure why we capitalise it, but that’s beside the point) – won’t have horns on their helmets. That also means you’re going to see a lot of female Vikings beat up the opposition too. You have to respect a group of seafaring folk who already had equality in the workplace, considering they were at their best way back in the 9th Century." (PC, War of the Vikings)
