Pirates, Vikings and Knights II beta 2.4. In this news we introduce your our new voice system, how it works and also some footage of new Trinket Wars Mode.

Posted by on

Greetings Everyone!

Over the year following version 2.3's release, we've been hard at work expanding our team, improving the game, and adding new features for all 'ye landlubbers to sink your teeth into. We know you've all been patiently waiting for a preview of 2.4, so here it is!

One major feature of our new patch will be the introduction of a new game mode called Trinket Wars. Trinket Wars will replace the current Holy Grail mode, and bring a new level of team-oriented combat to the game. The mechanics are simple - each team has its own trinket to look after. As each team scores kills in the presence of their trinket carrier, they earn points toward victory. Killing an opposing team's trinket carrier awards your team a point, subtracts one from the enemy team, and replenishes health and armor to those who witnessed it. Today we introduce map tw_Temple with updated Captain voices!

Feast your eyes on our beautiful new game mode:


Also with the update comes a brand new set of voice commands for each class. We really wanted to give each class its own personality as we look toward adding new classes in the future. Kudos to Bingo Bango, TheForgotton, and DragonNOR for their spectacular work!

Have a listen, darling:


So, you've seen the new game mode, you've heard the new voices, now it's time for the bad news. It is with the deepest regret that I inform you we will not be able to include the Man-At-Arms, Sharpshooter, and Fort into the 2.4 update. But we got a crate made by Dudders for you:


Lovely, eh? We plan to introduce both the Man-At-Arms and Sharpshooter in the update following 2.4.

That's all for now. I hope you all had as much fun as I did.

hmm, mounting a personal attack because you received criticism? Plus you can't take credit for "released mods" either because you're just piggybacking off mods that were released before you even started working for them.

Good work bro.

Sverek's comment generally made me lose all respect for this team, and i've respected there work and game for years.

Mainly because of the agression of a simple comment, if you think im a troll, ignore me, but it was meant to be somewhat critcism, mainly because the old voices were funny, these arent.

X is bad, is not good critique. As a developer it is not fun to watch people call it bad without telling how it could be improved in their eyes. Your name "LordTrolley" also doesn't help in your favour...

I am very sorry. I mistook critic with trolling.

you see I would not mind, if you wrote something like this guy on youtube "I seriously think all of these suck except for the archer, because I hate archers and the noises they make when you hit them should be funny :D. But still, the voices were fine. The pirate´╗┐ voices are just stupid, they sound so forced, they arent funny, its like they are trying to be funny, trying so hard it isnt, and the voice actors arent the greatest for game voices either. I dont want to sound like an english pussy when im playing as a viking."

I can feel his rage and hate toward new voices, but he at least makes it clear. So if we to remake voices, we could keep in mind to make classes sound more natural and "less stupid".

In my opinion, hate doesn't equal to trolling, as long as it well explained.

that guy on youtube pretty much summed up what i was thinking, but couldnt be bothered to type.

Also lol someone said having a name like LordTrolley means that im a troll, You do realise trolleys are things you push your bloody shopping with you plonker.

They may take a bit of getting used to but the new voices seem more light hearted and comedic than the previous, I am liking the cocky pirate.

I have to be honest I do not like the new voices, they seem rather corny too me, I'd prefer having the old voices back. I'm not trying to be a jerk or anything, just giving my input.
