Step into the fray as the fearsome Shieldmaiden!

Paradox Interactive & Fatshark are proud to present the first piece of downloadable content from the War of the Vikings franchise. Entitled Shieldmaiden, this addition now lets you play as a female character and aims to expand on the wide repertoire of gear and customizable features at your disposal whilst elevating the visceral action of the Vikings franchise to a whole new level by incorporating new gameplay mechanics.

Beat back your enemies from behind your shield, or simply beat them with the shield, dazing and opening them up for your next attack. These two new special attacks bring new tactical depth, and danger, to the close quarters battlefield that only the War of the Vikings can offer. The time is now to get up, gear up and go to war!

Key Features:

  • Customize your Shieldmaiden: As a Shieldmaiden owner, you can now play as a female character as well as access customization, letting you create a unique Shieldmaiden built to fit your play style and taste.

  • Customize your Gear: Choose among all existing gear + 2 new spears, 2 new helmets (each helmet comes in two variants), and different secondary weapons.

  • Select Perks: Define your own play style, adding the perks you want for your Shieldmaiden.

  • Create a unique look: Become unforgettable to your enemies as they cower in your wake; Choose among color patterns, helmets, cloaks, and shields.

  • Customize your experience: 2 extra load out slots - make and save 2 more characters!

Stand out, create your own Shieldmaiden and shape your legend.

Good, but should be in the main game.

This dlc let's you customize your schieldmaiden which is great but shouldn't this be in the basic game? In my opinion yes! But let's not talk about that right now. The dlc let's your play the game the style you want, it does this by adding perks you want for your schieldmaiden, it also gives 2 extra load out slots to make more characters. Good, but like I said should be in the basic game so not worth full price in my opinion.
