Berserker class hits War of the Vikings

New class, new mode, and three new maps land in free update.

The Berserker class has just been added to War of the Vikings, the melee focused combat game from Paradox Interactive and Fatshark, and it forms part of a free update that landed yesterday. Alongside the new class, three new maps were added to the rotation, as was a game mode called Domination.

Here's the description of the class that came with the press release, and the accompanying trailer has been added below:

<I>The Berserker sacrifices armor, ranged weaponry, and weapon pick-ups in exchange for pure adrenaline-powered attacks, possessing the ability to dual-wield weapons. Players taking the role of Berserker will no longer charge up their swings, instead focusing on special attacks and a new combo system to keep their blades flying. Combos can be created with queued attacks, dodges, and different move sets depending on whether a warrior wields two swords, two axes, or one of each. In addition, the Berserker will be visually distinct on the battlefield, clad in bear pelts, fierce tattoos, and the blood of their enemies.&#8232;&#8232;

What's more, a Berserker will not die easily: when struck by a fatal blow, the character is granted 10 seconds of ‘blood rage,' which will allow them to continue the fight if they can claim a kill before that adrenaline runs out!</i>

REVIEW. Written by Mike Holmes

"It's still an utterly punishing game, and while it is certainly easier to pick up, it's still very tricky to master."
