War of the Vikings update adds classes, tries to grow beards

War of the Vikings - 09
Beard rating: INSIGNIFICANT.

Paradox has announced that the latest update for War of the Vikings – the in-Early-Access PvP combat game – has added three more profile loadouts to the game.

The short explanation is that this basically means there are three more classes for you to use when you’re trying to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their women. The “big” one is the Champion class, equipped with a rather lethal Dane Axe.

More importantly, though, Paradox are pressing forward with a beard-growing competition. Take a picture of your real-life amazing beard, and if Paradox agree that it is indeed amazing, they might just add it to the game. No, really.

War of the Vikings (or War of the Horny Hairy Blood Men, as we like to call it) is currently in Early Access on Steam; £14.99 will net you access. You can see us having a go at it over here.
