Phase 5 - Nótt - Information
Greetings, wonderful community!

The last big update for War of the Vikings Early Access is upon us, and yes we have said this before. For real this time though!

This is the biggest update to date, content wise, and we're super excited to see what you think of it. As usual feedback and suggestions are more than appreciated, this is your final chance to affect the game prior to launch! Bug reports go here.[helpdesk.fatshark.se]

One thing you might notice in the patch notes is the "Added PDX OS" section. This is to connect Vikings to your Paradox Account (Pdx-plaza forum account is in the same system), which gives you a central account for all things Paradox. Right now user functionality on this is barebones and you will most likely not notice it, but going forward this will change and we will update you as things progress.

Valhalla owners now get their edition-bonus, meaning all items are unlocked, as well as their exclusive helmets.

Blood Eagle owners will get their helmets, as well as their bonus coins.

All Early Access players also get to see their exclusive helmets that are part of the Founders Club reward.

Before you get to read the juicy update notes there's one final important thing - tomorrow (March 5th) at 20:00 CET there will be a livestream featuring Gordon Van ♥♥♥♥, myself and two teams of community members. Whilst the players and I have fun on a server Gordon will talk about a lot of interesting stuff, including more details on the actual release date of Vikings. We'd love to see you all there![www.twitch.tv]

As per usual this is an Early Access update and the size will be larger than in retail. The update is roughly 10gb in size.

nice update !

is it live? steam doesnt show anything...

im really curious about some changes:
2h axes range - maybe now we will have alternatives, not only 1h sword to rule them all ;)

new perks - im really afraid of blade master. dont know what it gives but im afraid of even more deadly swords. also Niding?[en.wiktionary.org], Feign death could be funny :D

Pitched Battle - ? i thought we already have its improved version - Arena. WotR PB is its best mode but its slow and maps are just too big (some snipers can ruin whole match camping on roofs etc) so i cant see how PB in Vikings could be better than Arena. perhaps more tactics and bigger player limit but thats it.

Watered a few plants on Forest - finally!

please before release do something about USE button. dont make same mistake twice (Roses). sometimes its very hard to do what we want. if teammate is lying next to weapons (very common in conquest at capture points) its almost impossible to revive him without picking up every possible weapon from the ground. also when someone with any damage to health stands nearby that teammate bandage receives higher priority making revive even harder. maybe it was partially fixed already but its still very annoying thing.

If you do not have a paradox account, you need to create one. :)
Blankoster Mar 4, 2014 @ 4:45am 
The Steam Users, What do we have to do with the "Paradox Accounts"?, i don't have an account of Paradox. I bought the Bloody Eagle pack on Steam, how do i link my Steam Account Details to the Paradox one?
