PVK Characters

Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II boasts a unique three-team symmetry and a myriad of colorful characters to promote exciting, strategic, and fun gameplay. It features several game modes, each requiring its own special brand of cunning to master. Do battle on a tropical island for control of bountiful treasure. Appease your gods by spilling the blood of your enemies deep within a Mayan temple. Conquer your foes by taking control of precious badlands territory. But most importantly, have FUN!


  • Three teams with 9 unique player classes
  • Fun, skill-based combat
  • Swords, axes, guns, and explosives
  • Unique voice acting for every character
  • A variety of gorgeous levels
  • Whimsical and challenging achievements
  • Command-able attack parrots
  • 100% FREE!

Unique Combat System:
The combat system is something you will not find in other games. Melee is based off of directional charged attacks and blocks,
far from the usual click and slash method found in most games. Each class has their own set of unique weapons
(When we say unique, picture a trained attack parrot) and play styles, as well as class specific special attacks that can be
unleashed once the meter is filled.

Multiple Game Modes:
Each map features a game mode that you'll find both unique and entertaining. Game modes include Booty, Trinket Wars, Last Team Standing, Territory, Objective Push and Team Deathmatch. Many more are planned for future releases.

Each team sports its own set of unique classes. Each class offers its own play style and is most effective in different situations.
If you enjoy getting together with people and having an exhilarating time, Pirates, Vikings and Knights II should be top on your list of mods to try!

Calling All Photoshoppers! WAVE 2


Art this wave will be requested before deadline of July 1 2016 24:00 EST/GMT - 5. Achievements may be updated in game spontaneously, in a minor patch, and/or in major update in the near future. This is an artistic outlet for you to contribute to the future of PVKII! We're now open again to receiving new art for the Achievements!

We will decide on the best icons based on several factors such as: clarity, consistency, and hilarity!

This thread is not for achievement suggestions, just art for the respective wave! For achievement suggestions please visit that thread in our forums.

Contribution Info
If you can create something special for our game than we're willing to let you try! All art submissions are pending approval from Developers. Don't worry if one attempt doesn't make it in game, try again! All art created for this contribution event is property of the original creator, and you will be permitted to feature in game contribution in your portfolio if you have one. You will be recognized for your work on the PVKII Team page as a part of the Contributor group. Yes, the submissions are open to current Developers, and Testers as well, although it would be great to see what talent has yet to be discovered in our community.
You may submit one or more submissions. You may submit art for one or more achievements. So if you only feel like doing five from list and focusing solely on them - that's ok!

Achievement Image Info
Achievement icons should be vector-based, and include a greyscale copy for each image. Please submit the source file (psd etc) and clear image format to this forum thread. The source files can be larger to ensure highest quality!

How to Submit
Complete your icon then upload it to a site like imgur or dropbox. Submit all achievement art here.

Check back to the thread regularly for updates, community submissions, and witty banter! We'll post more achievements every so often and we'd love to have the community help out, so stay on the look out for notice about more ways you can help shape the future of PVKII!

Highest Rated (9 agree) 10/10

It's fast, frantic, fun and it's on Steam. One of the most unique and entertaining mods on the Source engine to date! Unlike the average melee weapon in Source games, that basically behave as a gun with a very short range, PVK II boasts a fully fledged melee weapon system. The direction of your swing actually matters and can be blocked by a proper parry in the right direction. If you swing a large weapon around, you can hit multiple targets in a single hit. PVK II also has a very interesting set…
