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.

3.1.1 Patch Update News
In other news, our very soon to be released 3.1.1 hotfix has become more of a larger sized update, and has taken more time than we initially expected. However, we are beginning RC testing and we hope to have it released some time later this month or in the first week of May by the latest. We will show you the changelog in anticipation of the release.

Despre acest joc

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!

  • Three teams with 9 unique player classes
  • Fun, skill-based combat

  • 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 ont he 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.

  • 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 Deahmatch. 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!

tl;dr - 9.5/10 game.

Breakdown:

Media (Audio/Graphics/Programming):
The game is visually pleasing. There may be a few small clips or graphical problems, but the game runs very smooth, since it does not have fancy shaders or modeling. Audio is fine. Background music is satisfactory, and the sound effects are very good.

Idea (Mechanics/Balancing/Marketing):
PVKII is a VERY good idea. As the title states, it is a three team battle. Pirates VS Vikings VS Knights. All the teams have three classes, which normally are: Ranger, Melee, and a medium-ranged fighter. The game is well-balanced, with many counter attacks you can make against other players. The community is amazing! The developers are awesome!

Fun:
PVKII is a FREE game. It's not filled to the brim with microtransactions like other "free" games. In fact, there is nothing to buy. (except HL2 to play the mod ) The game is very fun. Instead of your normal two team fighting game, this game is perfect for groups with multiples of three. If you have lopsided teams in other games, try PVKII with friends! All the classes are unique, along with the teams.

Overall:
Amazing, truly FREE game. Very fun three team fighting game! Developers are cool, and the game is amazing! The game itself runs very smooth, with a sacrifice of polycount. (but in an intense fight, you wouldn't care, and it's not THAT noticable as other games)

Buy it when it goes on sa-... wait... it's free! If you do not have the original game (HL2), BUY IT NOW. Play HL2 through, and then play PVKII.
The only drawback is the small community. Otherwise, this game is perfect. You probably want to play with friends though, so you can find people to play with.
9.5/10.

Are you tired of dying to tryhards who's only excuse is to exploit every long range/ high damage weapon possible in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare?
Are you tired to make one mistake and get your head chopped off due to a feint in the said game?

Are you unsure if you'll manage to handle the largeness of Mount and Blade large-scale battles?
(Actually have no experience in that area, but what the hell. )

Anyway. This game, this booty-hoarding game, is a must for a sword clash loving player.

3 time-line dominator individuals thrown together and battling with unique weapons and classes.

Pirates are unfair and have guns and explosives, but they're frail, and are strongest when attacking together from alot of angles and causing mischief overall.

Vikings are, pretty much, vikings, they'll be the ones who'll attack the front and mostly kill, but their main weapons are slow and they're easy to dispatch one at a time if they get separated.

Knights are the most defensive based ones, having a fair share of close range weapons and long range archery, they gotta play together to survive, though, with the knights as the frontline and archers taking pot shots at the attackers.

All classes have their unique sides in their play, as stated. All also have a special meter that fills up when causing enough damage, which can turn the tides of battles. (Like shooting a cannonball through a blunderbuss into a room filled with enemies and pretty much destroying the party!)

Not the best review. 38 in-game hours don't say too much, but I learned some in my time cutting down enemies.

This game is a must if one wanna have sword game. And downloading it free pretty much says it all in that matter.
Oh, money, by the way. This game is full of instant aquirement. As soon you join a server you get all the classes and weapons to play with, ta-ta.

Only downsides right now is that some classes have a bit of unbalance.
And the game got a low amount of players, it'll be rare if you find a fully packed server, sadly.

Oh and the Pirate Captain class have a parrot for weapon.

Three teams, tripple fun. You will enjoy alot while playing with friends (LAN or just random public server). We have pirates that are focused on ranged weaponry, Every pirate class have at least a ranged weapon. Then Vikings wich are focused on melee combat and crowd control. Yes, they do have ranged weapons but you will notice that all of them have at least one large melee weapon (husclar's axe/ gestir's spear etc). And lastly we have knights, who are a mix of both. Knight (AKA: Ironman) doesn't have a ranged weapon and archer is ranged specialist (no strong melee weapon). While Man-at-Arms is a mix of ranged combat and melee combat.

The game is being constantly updated with new maps, gamemodes and classes.Allthough the game is being updated like rain in the middle of sahara. Go get it, It's FREE!

Why have two teams fight against each other when you can have three? This free to play multiplayer answers that question. You pick a faction, namely Pirates, Vikings, or Knights. Each faction has 3 classes, all having different weapons. Weapons are that of the medieval age. Graphics are great, but not amazing. Game is completely free, no P2P ♥♥♥♥, no DLC, etc. All you need is a Source game, and 7 gbs of space.

Gameplay: 9/10
Graphics: 8/10
Sound: 8/10
Overall: 9.5/10

If you want a free game that's actually enjoyable with no DLC, P2P elements, or anything, definitely get this game.

I love this game so much, It does have some balance issues like the Man-at-Arm's Halberd having RIDICULOUS range but other than that this game is brilliant. PVKII has similar elements to Chivalry but it mixes in to make a fun game, although it does require some skill. In PVKII you have the Choice of 3 teams: Pirates, Vikings, and of course; Knights. There are many different game-modes such as:

* Booty - A Capture-The-Flag type game-mode, which has the 3 teams fighting over chests and having chests make your points count down, the more you have the faster it counts down.

*Trinket Wars - The three teams pit off against each other in a team death-match scenario except one player in each team is super powered as they hold the teams "Trinket". The Super powered player will regen any team-mates near them as well as heal themselves, but if they die they drop the trinket and you have to pick it up before it disappears

Overall a brilliant game for it being free 10/10.
