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!

This mod is really awesome , I hope the new classes will be balanced.
Just one thing the new voices sounds in the vidéos looks strange , and maybe there are too much or they shall be lower.

Continue your great job :)

Beware the Stare Of Mary Shaw.

As a beta tester I am used to the new sounds and I have to say they aren't worse than the old ones. In fact, there will be so many new sounds for so many situations (tactical, comedial,taunts etc)that this will easily outweigh personal preferences towards the old voices

Please for the love of god dont update the pirate sounds, get the same voice actor if you want to but serioulsy the amount of fun i have had over the years with "IEZ GOTZ DAH BOOTAI, AYEEEEEEE, no, AAAYE" Is beyond silly.

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…

After steam release, this mod is no longer acceptable.
