Summer Recap News & 3.4 Gameplay Video Featuring You!
Happy Autumnal Equinox everyone! We hope you had an amazing summer full of games, parties, and PVKII!
It has been a while since our last news update, so we'd like to do more recap post for our fans to stay up to speed on things. So without further ado!
We all know what you all really want, and as you all may be aware of, we've been working behind the scenes on our next two classes: Viking Bondi and Pirate Buccaneer. Bondi development is well underway and more progress will be shown on the other character models in the future. These amazing models are being worked on by Corvalho, and are being brought to life by jRocket, Felis, Spirrwell, theForgotten, and of course constantly tested by Koko and his beta testing team.
More Bondi and character class progress is showcased down below, but first an awesome, chaotic gameplay video featuring you, the pvkii community, from a previous play with devs & testers event. Recorded by PVKII devs and testers, this video was put together by Agsma - Source Filmmaker scenes and all!

Character Class Updates!
Corvalho's Bondi model and jRocket's shared animations are done and are being tested! Your favorite tag team programmers, Felis and Spirrwell, have been making great progress on his special and how he fits in with his viking brothers. Check him out in the PVKLive video above! Corvalho has finished sculpting the pirate-tank-teddy-bear Jamaican buccaneer, and has moved to the optimizing phase. In between his busy schedule, Corvalho last year sculpted out a Pirate 'Ealer, and has recently created official concept art for Viking Sied-Kona/Shaman, and Knight Female Assassin. Take a gander at his work below, and more extensively on GameBanana[gamebanana.com]
