Paradox Interactive has announced that developer Fatshark is starting up a closed alpha test for the Norse combat game, War of the Vikings, which is based on the same tech as War of the Roses.
According to the press release, "The game’s first Closed Alpha will drop players into the Pitched Arena game mode, a harsh, fast-paced battle with no respawns with victory going to the last Viking or Saxon standing. Two maps will be on display, with three character classes available to choose from, giving testers the chance to experience a wide range of available weapons, perks, and play styles."
* Warrior (Medium Class): An all-around warrior with medium armor, rampaging through the battlefield with a sword and shield, and throwing axes.
* Huscarl (Heavy Class): A heavily armored juggernaut with charged up attacks whose two-handed axe will cut a path through his foes.
* Scout (Light Class): A ranged fighter who picks off enemies with a longbow, but carries a light axe if things get a little too personal.
The closed alpha will run til the 1st September 2013. Interested gamers can sign up .
