Phase 3 - Atgeirr - Information
Greetings community!

Today we are launching the newest Phase Update for War of the Vikings - Atgeirr! With this we're releasing a bunch of new profiles, maps, a new game mode, weapons and Battlechatter 1.0!

As we are once again releasing a very major update to the game this will, unfortunately, be a big download (aprox 6gb). This is because we are replacing current game files (it's like downloading an entirely new game) with updates ones so that we do not fill up your harddrives with unused assets and take up space.

This might be the case for other upcoming Early Access updates too, but we assure you that once the game is live we will release "normal sized" updates :)

Once again we'd like to thank you all for the great deal of feedback, bug reports and suggestions we have received so far in Early Access. Keep it coming!

Spears (melee) will be released in an additional patch December 11th.

Damnit, this update is released at the same time as Broken Sword 5.....I'm going to be sitting here all night trying to decide which to play.

Nice update, looking forward to hearing the new battle chatter. Conquest is also cool to see on the list. Will we see the return of the attack and defend mode from Roses in the future I wonder.

This is due to the faster pacing of the game.

Can you explain me what is new in this CQ? or why is CQ new game mode?
Because pitched arena is same as pitched battle with small maps.

Would you mind explaining further than "it's worse"?

Small maps. It's like TDM or Arena with capture points. You only go ahead and kill everyone who gets in your way. You don't need tactics to win.

War of the Vikings has an entirely different pace than Roses, and smaller more tight maps contribute to the faster action. I do not agree that tactics are not needed to win though as clever maneuvering and squad play is extremely strong in Conquest.
