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, 10 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!

Hi everyone!

We hope you are having a great and safe summer! We have no game update at this time, however we would like to show you a bit of what we’re working on.

PVKLive & Assassin Pre-Release Announcement
We’ll be doing a PVKLive Stream in the very near future to show off more of what we have in our private build. This will be some time before Assassin’s pre-release. A pre-release, which was done for Man At Arms, means Assassin will release in a somewhat complete state and we’ll be listening to the community for feedback and making adjustments in the patches that follow. As PVKII is still in Beta, all 12 classes including the Assassin, will be fully complete for our 1.0 release. Stay tuned to read more about PVKLive and the Assassin Pre-Release wherever frequent PVKII news is posted.

New Music!
We’ve brought on a slick music talent by the name of Matt Harper aka stringsandbows to help us create a complete soundtrack for our 1.0 release. Check out his new Captain and Man At Arms themes!

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…
