FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! When Vikings Attack showdown tomorrow night!
The moment you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived! Tomorrow evening we’re giving you the opportunity to get a mob together and pelt SCEE employees with rocks, chairs, trash cans, explosives, grand pianos and whatever else you can get your hands on. Come get some!
Between 5.00pm and 7.00pm GMT on Thursday 15th November, myself, Jawad from the Store team and the fearsome Yappadog from Marketing will be taking on all-comers at When Vikings Attack! – the bonkers action title that’s just emerged from our XDev studio, via developer Clever Beans.
If you haven’t had the chance to check the game out yet, it’s a multiplayer-focussed romp that sees you defending your precious homeland against gangs of Viking marauders by gathering a crew of your own and pelting the enemy with any projectile you can find. It’s a simple concept, but fiendishly addictive and, in the Blog team’s humble opinion, one of the funniest games we’ve played all year. See the trailer below for a closer look.
To join in, firstly make sure you have the game – it will set you back a trifling £7.99/€9.99 from PSN and is Cross Play compatible across PS3 and PS Vita. Once you’re tooled up, add our PSN IDs – Chuck_FD, Salty_Tier and Yappadog – and then announce your interest in the Comments section so we know who to expect. We’ll then send out invites when the time comes. Depending on how much interest there is, we may recruit a few extra SCEE folk to get involved too.
So, if you think you’ve got what it takes, leave your mark below and get practicing!
