Sadly, I can't recommend this game anymore, because IT CAN'T BE PLAYED (literally).

WotV used to be one of my favorite games, but Paradox decided to stop supporting it, just months after its release.
After that, one Paradox employee decided to invest his own free time in order to keep providing minimal support for the game.
A couple of months ago, said employee quit Paradox, effectively ending WotV support for good.

What's the current situation of WotV?
The backend server has been down for months now (meaning that the game can't be accessed).
I started a thread reporting the problem in the Paradox forums several months ago... Do you know how many replies I've received? None, because Paradox has moved on.

So if you are consireding to buy WotV, DON'T DO IT.
Chances are you won't be able to even access the main menu, and Paradox won't do anything about it.

I think Steam should stop selling the game, since it can't be played and Paradox has abandoned it.

The game was great fun back when it had a community. It has since died to basically nothing, if youre lucky youll get on a high ping server with 1 or 2 players. Compared to War of the Roses this game is lacking in game modes, its just head to head fighting with no objectives or alternate modes. Which is very disappointing becuase there is a lot this developer could have done with it such as raids mode, storm the beach modes where you come in on a long ship trying to take over a point. It just seemed like the game was hurried out to make the viking popularity rush, which it did, then got abandoned.

I'd love to write an in depth review, but after months of waiting for this to be a reasonable sale price, the entire action packed adventure consists of either the launcher not responding or completely freezing my system, to refusing to load from false accusations of driver verification disables (really, wtf?)
No gameplay whatsoever. The video is extremely misleading, if not a blatant lie.

I have over 1000 hours in this game. I love it. Truly.

I cannot recommend it anymore.

The game was updated in January to it's current build, 1.5. They switched to a new server-side hit detection system. Now nothing works. Hits don't work. Blocks don't work. Interrupts don't work.

The game, in it's current state, is unplayable. It is a shadow of its former self.

Save your money.

I will not support Fatshark after there treatment of the community in this game.

Servers are dead. Game is laggy. Game mechanics are broken or just do not work as intended.
This game had so much potential and the dropped the ball. I would reccomend getting Mount and Blade Warband instead.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!!
This was my favorite game, especially during beta. It was a wonderful game at one time despite it's issues, but it's dead now. Developers have stated that they will no longer work on the game and the last patch that was supposed to be a stability patch broke the game.

There are no longer players to play with or a game to play. It is purely shameful that this game has not been removed from steam since being abandoned in such a state.
