Update 1.2 - The Berserker
Greetings community!

Tomorrow, June 18th, we are releasing the second mini-expansion for War of the Vikings. Just as with the Shieldmaiden update we are using a mostly-free model that gives everyone a majority of the new content with no additional cost, being three new maps and the domination game mode, tons of new faces, a standard class et cetera. The one thing you can chose to buy is a customizable Berserker.

Check out this video for a quick look at what to expect from this new, fierce, dual wielding class:
