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.
Altogether we have 18 unique classes planned, 6 for each team!
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!

A lot more work can and will be put into it as the character takes more shape, I'm curious what you think specifically is bad, or are you the kind of person who just says things suck without background knowledge of why?

I always look for ways to improve, but just saying its bad doesn't improve on anything. In which case good sir, you are trolling.

Compared to the old voice actors, the new ones try too hard.

They are silly, it fits the style but the older voices were so much more hilarious.

I prefer "RAGNAROK IS APON UUUUU" in that awesome tone of voice rather than any of the new phrases.

The new Pirate voice actor tries to be funny instead of being funny, but it isnt the style of trying to be funny that it IS funny, its trying to be funny that it isnt funny.

I think the knights new voices fit in very well, but vikings and pirates really dont suit the game.

You're giving opinions based solely on new = bad, old = good and don't want to accept change. You're talking out of ignorance. "The new Pirate voice actor", you say. But ... there's two.

We all put a lot of hard work into this. It's a bit demoralizing for people who haven't booted up the game for six months to play it for five minutes, go WAT WER IS OLD VOICES??? and then jump back onto the forums or onto here and declare that we're inept/we suck/make quips insinuating those things. The old voicss guy is coming back, just please stop calling us ***** in the mean time.

We don't think you suck, we just don't like your new voices. I even stated in my post above that the only thing I hated was the new voices and everything else about the mod was good.

Lol, noone called you a ****.

And i am a regular on this mod, but ever since you released this on steam, it has been an awful downhill struggle.

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…

After steam release, this mod is no longer acceptable.
