Early Access game gets meatier before release.
War of the Vikings, Paradox Interactive’s new game that is currently in Early Access on Steam, has gotten a new update that adds new maps, bloodier vikings, and weapons looting to the game. Which sort of makes sense for a game that is about, you know, vikings.
The new phase of the game, called “Bloðorn,” (which means “Blood Eagle” for those of you who did not know) adds new changes to the combat system. It also adds a set of gruesome new blood effects, along with new maps and profile loadouts. Paradox promises us that new updates will continue to arrive on a regular basis as the developers work with Early Access players to optimize gameplay, add new features, and expand the title in anticipation of its release date.
The bloody update comes to us because Paradox is a Blood Drive participant, and wants to raise awareness.
I don’t know, this is a pretty fun way of raising awareness for a cause, that’s for sure.
