PVKII 3.4 Minor Hotfix Update

An update has been released for PVKII. This is a very minor hotfix update.

  • sv_airaccelerate and sv_accelerate are now accessible again. These are primarily used for surf maps. This will allow surf maps to function properly again.
  • ambient_fmod sounds now use a linear square rolloff model. Simply put, this means that maps that use the ambient_fmod entity to replace ambient_generic should sound much more alike. This allows mappers to switch from using ambient_generics with a lot less tweaking.
  • Fixed crash caused by spawning items (such as parrots) that can kill you. A bug had made it so if you were to spawn parrots with console commands, and they were to kill you, you would crash. This is now fixed.
  • Shield will now block explosive projectile damage properly. A bug had been created that caused shields to block explosive projectile damage completely. (Sharpshooter special and Captain special) They are now blocked properly and only reduce damage, not completely block it.

About This Game

Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II boasts a unique three-team symmetry and a myriad of colorful characters to promote exciting, strategic, and fun gameplay. It features several game modes, each requiring its own special brand of cunning to master. Do battle on a tropical island for control of bountiful treasure. Appease your gods by spilling the blood of your enemies deep within a Mayan temple. Conquer your foes by taking control of precious badlands territory. But most importantly, have FUN!

Features & Accolades



  • Three teams with 9 unique player classes
  • Fun, skill-based combat
  • Swords, axes, guns, and explosives
  • Unique voice acting for every character
  • A variety of gorgeous levels
  • Whimsical and challenging achievements
  • Command-able attack parrots
  • 100% FREE!

Pirates

  • Skirmisher: A light-footed scallywag who can blow enemies away with his gunpowder-packed keg.
  • Captain: Brandishes a peg-leg, hook, and an attack parrot, which will seek out enemies and peck them to death!
  • Sharpshooter: A Spanish sweet-talker who snipes his enemies from a safe distance, or cuts them to pieces with his butter knife.

Vikings

  • Berserker: A shirtless and battle-crazed warrior capable of mowing enemies down with his dual-wielded weapons and giant axe.
  • Huscarl: Throwing axes, a two-handed battle axe, and sword/shield combo allow this warrior to take on the toughest enemies.
  • Gestir: A well-seasoned master of the spear and javelins who has no problem skewering his enemies either up close or from a distance.

Knights

  • Heavy Knights: Wearing a full suit of armor, this battle tank can cut his foes in half with his great sword.
  • Archer: There is no match for a skilled archer with a quiver full of arrows. He sometimes reigns fire down upon his enemies.
  • Man-at-Arms: A Frenchman with a sense of humor. He brandishes a halberd, mace & buckler, and his fart special will leave enemies dazed and confused.

Game Modes

Booty

Booty is a unique version of Capture the Flag. Players fight each other for treasure chests filled with gold and jewels. Bring chests back to your base and hold onto them to win the game.

Territory

Territory is a king of the hill style game mode, where teams fight for territories throughout the map. Hold onto the territories for as long as you can to win the game.

Trinket Wars

Trinket Wars is the caffeinated version of Team Deathmatch. Teams must gain control of their trinkets, and then use the power of their trinket to destroy their enemies.

Last Team Standing

Last Team Standing is exactly what the name suggests - all three teams square off, fighting to the death. The last team alive wins the round.

Objective Push

This game mode can range from a simple break-in and destroy your opponents' bases, to a more advanced sequence of map-specific objectives. The only limit is the mapper's imagination!

Team Deathmatch

Team Deathmatch is a fight for dominance. Teams square off against one another to see who can rack up the most kills. Like the other game modes, you should stick together to achieve victory!

I used to play this back 6 years ago. I have to say, if you want a VERY VERY fun multiplayer game thats free, this is one of the best if not the best for you. It's an incredible time waster, all classes are well balanced.

The only bad thing I can think of is that once a team is full you can't join it, and a big part of the game is that each teams have their own classes, with their own playing style, thus locking you out of your main/favorite class.

Regardless, this game is SOOO much fun. I recommend it completely.

Not only is this game f***ing awesome, the community is hilarious! There's nothing like getting baked with your buds and cruisin' to throw some axes at some foo's. There's lots of skilled players if you likw competition. There's also tons of stoners and dumb kids if you love camping and trolling and slayin' freaks. I love going behind enemy lines and talking to my enemies. I tell them I won't hurt them, then steal all their treaure! Muahahahahahaaaa! I get my ♥♥♥ kicked a lot, too. It's fun. 9/10! I'd say 10/10 if it had some ♥♥♥♥. Wait, I forgot about the porn photo sprays that trolls graffiti 'cross the map. It's mostly gay porn, but still 10/10 for the rare pare o' good ol' ♥♥♥♥!

This game, just wow. It's so fun and addicting, I thought this would be a very bland boring game with clunky mechanics, but oh I was wrong. (Thought it still does have some clunky mechanics) I really recommend this game simply because it's fun!

So, i played this a little bit but i feel like it has no active people on servers, has fun gameplay & i had to stop playing because there's only 1 server where everyone plays, so you are alone in another server and you get bored, but when you get to play a 33 full server it's going to feel awesome, BUT it's to loud; Pirates, Knights & Vikings shouting in your ears (i mean the people) and i didn't knew how to mute them, so i turned down the volume (there was this kid that only said "Dunka-Dun" and it was hilarious) But it can penetrate your ears, the gameplay it's fun & fast (THE F****** ROLLING NEEDS TO BE NERFED, the rolling must have a stamina bar, just like the kick). The balance it's a little bit awefull, i mean 5 knights vs 5 vikings vs 3 pirates......... And if you are the pirate you are F*****, but this game needs more people and more servers.
