Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II pits three teams against each other in a struggle for wealth, power and total domination. Whether using the Gunpowder Keg to clear out a territory full of enemies, or the Javelin to pin your dead foes to a wall, you'll find this game both hilarious and exhilarating.

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!

This quote here to explain everything about this game: "You dont frighten us, English pig dogs. Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-called 'Arthur King', you and all your silly English K-nig-hts. I dont want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!"

+ ability to play classic music gems during gameplay
+ great sounds; voice acting, especially man-at-arms
+ melee combat mechanics is 100% skill oriented

- lack of vote system for tossing the teams if unbalanced
- need more playable characters for ex. healers etc..

This is not just a mod, but well designed competitive team based action game. At first, after launching I thought that its cheap piece of sh** with crappy graphics.. it took me couple of hours to realize how I was mistaken. Humourous taunts, references to Monty Python, goofy community members; all that makes game so good. Some moments you find a pure joy to be part of the events happening during the gameplay while trying to survive in the middle of madness.

This game is not mainstream-trash, it is unique. It is unique, just like CounterStrike. Let's take for example, hmm, Call of Duty. You are only running around, looking at your radar and finding some enemies to kill them. PVK 2 is based on tactic and teamwork, but in a unique way. This game is really something that can't get boring, in my opinion. This game deserves a bigger community and also more fame.. (btw cant wait for the new character called "Bondi" :))

It's a great F2P game that actually requires skill for once, I hope they start updating this game soon or work on a better project, but other than that this is a hilarious game and it would be a shame if it dies out

played the original wayyyy back when... This game simply is a huge improvement over it's predecessor. For me it is a fun game to have a drink or two over with your buddies. Heck, even with randoms this game is jokes! Performs quite well and surprisingly balanced! If you are looking for a long lasting insane story experience - nope this is not it! If you just want to have a solid fun time killing others in a fun way, then check this out! Game is FREE - well worth $25 to me anyhow - take care dudes!
