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!

Pieates, Vikings, and Knights II is a true F2P game, with good but quite difficult to master combat. They're is a variety of classes (Total of three,3.) between three, 3, teams. Each team gets three, 3, classes, and variety in each class. Theres decent maps (better then CoD) and normal game modes. i would give it 4.3 stars.

It used to be one of my favourite games, but now with all the """user friendly""" things they've added there isn't really any skill involved at all.

Hints will constantly pop up telling you things like "You can walk in this game!", you can automatically block enemy attacks, there's outlines and guides leading to every little thing constantly, and there's even these giant annoying bars that appear hovering around enemies that cheats for you and shows you what direction to block, or what direction not to attack. It shows what direction the enemy is attacking/blocking, and their current charge. I can't find a way to disable them.

http://i.imgur.com/7Emd7aE.png

They also, for some reason, added this really awkward "roll" mechanic to the game (and also a kick mechanic that makes shields rather worthless for knockback). Using it gets you killed, and there's no cooldown. Every server I join the entire enemy teams are constantly rolling, not hurting anyone but being annoying to hit. They just take slightly longer to kill and is aggravating. The only benefits to rolling are comically overpowered, but only against heavy knights: rolling makes it so you can flee from them at any time, and if you're a pirate sharpshooter the only way they can kill you is if you get cornered. Now the class that had to stay back and act as a supporting role can be more effective than any other class, simply because they can't get hit, and reload while they roll.

I've never seen a game go from so good to so bad so quickly. It used to be in my top 5 games, now I doubt I'll even ever play it. Even if I did want to play it, nobody plays this game anymore, there's hardly any people on ever. Unless I want to play 24/7 island servers in Europe with 300 ping, of course. Even counting that though, at the time of writing there's only about 50~60 players playing right now, on any server. And only ~15 of them aren't on the European servers running the same one map constantly.




Also, the auto-balance is still really horrible and abusable, even restacking teams if balance was fixed. Ex, 4 knights, 6 pirates, 5 vikings, you're a pirate set to balance on death, a knight joins to make it 5/6/5, and then you get balanced on death to 6/5/5 for no reason.

A very fun game to play among a handful of friends. It's graphically simple enough to be rendered by low end computers, and yet still maintains a very inviting atmosphere. Create countless memories with your close friends as you engage in this rough and tumble game of wits.
