GodisaGeek: "Fatshark and Paradox Interactive are back with another ‘War of’ game, this time pitting the Saxons against the mighty Norsemen. War of the Vikings retains much of what made the previous outing (War of the Roses) successful, but this time around has a far less pansy name. The online multiplayer brawler is currently in alpha, and is set for release early next year. That said, it is surprisingly polished for a game in such an early stage, so it does inspire confidence that the finished product will be up to scratch. This limited preview code contains 2 maps (a forest area and a village) and 1 game mode; a straight up team deathmatch."
