Authors: PVKII Team

The Pirates, Vikings and Knights II team has brought a unique mod to the Half-Life 2 community. In PVKII, 3 teams compete against each other for kills, points, and total domination.

Pirates, Vikings and Knights II is a fast paced total conversion of the Source engine.

With a melee combat system that's unique to the modding community, game modes you won't find in other games and parrots that can be trained to peck at enemies, it's no surprise PVKII is so entertaining!

With each new release comes a handful of new features and changes that add even more depth and entertainment to this mod. The team works hard continuously to bring the community more action and fun.

If you enjoy getting together with people and having an exhilaratingly fun time, Pirates, Vikings and Knights II should be top on your list of mods to try!
