Paradox Interactive and developer Fatshark have added a new character class to axe-happy online brawler War of the Vikings in the game's latest patch; the dual-wielding Berserker.
Focused entirely on offensive capabilities and wearing almost no armour, the Berserker features a new combo system rather than the charge-up attacks of other classes.
As if that wasn't enough, the Berserker can also enter 'frenzy mode' after taking what would be fatal damage for any other class. If he can kill an enemy before a timer runs out, he'll find his health restored.
Alongside the new class, Patch 1.2 adds a new mode, Domination. In Domination, the Viking and Saxon teams must compete for control of a number of flags; holding the majority will cause the enemy to start losing respawn tickets, as will slaughtering their warriors. Basically it's the same as Battlefield's point capture modes.
