Viking Squad is a co-op roguelike brawler that’s coming to Windows PC, Mac, and PlayStation 4 next year.
A PlayStation Vita version is also a possibility, according to developer Slick Entertainment.
In Viking Squad, players choose from four Vikings, each with their own special weapon and move set, and then go on a voyage across the sea at the behest of a vicious Jarl to raid neighbouring enemies. All going well they return home with loot, level up, and do it all again.
Characters can equip different gear, improving their effectiveness in combat and how long they can last on a voyage into the game’s procedurally-generated world.
