When Vikings Pre-Order!
Hey everyone… did you know it’s just under a week until the launch of When Vikings Attack on PSN?!
We’re pretty excited… are you? If you are then we’d recommend that you take the chance now and pre-order the game on the PlayStation Store ASAP because in the run-up to launch we are offering a 30% discount to all users who pre-order!
So head to the PS3 store and either do a search for When Vikings Attack! Or go to the ‘Most Popular’ section and check the pre-order charts. Choose to buy the game and when it’s launched on the 7th you’ll only pay £5.49/€6.99 instead of the full price £7.99/€9.99 for BOTH versions of the game!
What are you waiting for?!
If you don’t know about the game already here’s the full final feature breakdown:
- 15 frantic arcade Quest levels following the exploits of a hapless band of British villagers as they fight back the Viking Hoards across village fetes, rural countryside, inner cities, fish and chip shops and sea side attractions. All can be played offline, online and cross play with 1 to 4 players
- Collect 62 unlockable villagers as you progress by finding them and taking them safely to the end of a stage. This includes the famous 3 competition winners
- Transfer your saves seamlessly between PSVita and PS3 using Cross-Save
- Score, time and death challenges for each stage
- Leaderboards for all levels
- 3 challenging Vs. game modes for 2 to 4 players
- Last Man Standing – A classic every man for themselves battle mode
- Vikings Vs. Vigilantes – 2v2 team battles
- Goldrush – An every man for themselves battle with a twist. There are special objectives, first to meet all objectives wins
- 20 unique Vs. levels playable in all above game modes each including different weapons and environmental hazards ranging from conveyer belts, busy car filled roads, warp pipes and cliff edges
- All game modes and levels are playable, online, offline and on Cross-Play with PSVita and PS3
And how do the Cross features work you ask?
Well first we have Cross-Buy… This one is simple! Just buy the game on either the PS3 or PSVita store and you will instantly be given both versions for no extra cost. Just check your download list on either platform to get access to it.
Cross-Play is also simple; it’s a totally seamless experience. When you go online with either the PS3 or PSVita and enter multiplayer matchmaking you will simply be dropped into a game no matter what system you or the other players are on. It just works… no special menus, no special set-up, just turn on and play.
Finally we have Cross-Save, basically when you are playing and your system is connected to the internet it will upload your save files as soon as a save game is made or updated. Once online the save files merge and as soon as you turn on the game on another platform with the same PSN account it will automatically download and merge the save again meaning that you have to do nothing other than be online.
Our goal from the start was always to make a simple pick-up and play game so we have done our best to make all these new features as seamless and simple to use as possible. Nothing should get in the way of fun!
So please enjoy When Vikings Attack! Play it with friends, play it alone, play it online, play it offline or play it via Cross-Play on PSVita and PS3, just enjoy it!
The game is available for Pre-order right now on PSN and will be released on the 7th of November across Europe.
