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!

First experience with game: Joined one of the only populated servers, immediately greeted by nonstop server-supported soundbytes, floaty, awkward combat, and people screaming over vc. Uninstalled as fast as possible.

It's like if TF2 and Chivalry had a baby and it was given to Johnny Depp to be raised.

So, you like Medieval games ? You can't afford Chivalry or it's a bit too powerful for your platform ? You want a free Medieval game with a distinctive personality ? This game is for you. PVKII is basically like TF for me, except it takes place in Medieval times, there are 3 teams, with 3 classes on each one. You can be the Noble Knights, Barbaric Vikings and Crazy Pirates.

What are you waiting for ? Dive in, and let's go medieval.

Played it for the Monthy Python achievements. In short - they are glorious. Would complain about a dead parrot again.

Get into it if you want a fun but somewhat simplified threeway Chivalry, and have time to learn how to swing.

I love this game, it's really fun and addictive, no in game purchases, and fun custom names and parrot colors you unlock through combat. It's really balanced and they plan to add more classes. Over all great game. You should get it.

It's a fun mod, more or less a TDM with 3 teams, depending on the gamemode. Each team has their own classes with their pros and cons, they're all pretty fun to master. There is still a small playerbase that frequents this game, but I imagine people will only keep playing this for another year before it completely dies out, so enjoy it while it lasts.

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!
