War of the Vikings Free Weekend

Paradox Interactive is conducting a free weekend for War of the Vikings on Steam, offering the chance to check out the early access version of Fatshark's game of medieval combat. They offer a new community update trailer showing off the game, and note that those who enjoy their free sample can buy the game at a discount:

Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and a bearer of shields, is offering a weekend of free Steam access to War of the Vikings, the upcoming close-combat game from Fatshark. Currently available in Beta via Steam Early Access, War of the Vikings will appear for free in every Steam member’s library from December 5, 2013 until December 8, 2013. Players can purchase War of the Vikings in Early Access to keep playing after the weekend is over and enjoy the game up to and beyond its official release. War of the Vikings can be downloaded via Steam at http://store.steampowered.com/app/234530/.

Players who decide to try their hand at the game's skill-based combat will also have a chance to see a new gameplay mode, “Conquest.” The new content update is available now, celebrating the start of the Free to Play Weekend. For more information, please visit: http://forum.paradoxplaza.com

Warriors brave enough to keep playing War of the Vikings after the free weekend will not only gain access to the javelins (available now), but can also look forward to a new weapon category in the form of the trusty spear due to arrive in our largest update yet thus far War of the Vikings. Combatants facing these new weapons will have to quickly rethink their defensive strategies, as javelins can instantly pierce through shields while spears can force opponents backwards. These abilities become even more dangerous on an all-new cliff-side map, which challenges players to fight their way from the beach all the way up to a monastery atop a high cliff. The new map supports Team Deathmatch, Arena, and the new Conquest game modes. In addition, a new “Battle Chatter” system is being added on a limited basis, letting certain characters respond audibly to in-game events. Characters will call out thanks to their teammates when revived, or warn allies of incoming archer fire – or simply bellow angrily at their enemies.
