Paradox has announced a standalone spin-off to Fatshark’s War of the Roses; it will feature Vikings this time, and is called War of the Vikings.
It will put players into the rolls of either the Saxons or the Vikings during the 9th and 10th centuries. You will be fighting to either defend or invade England.
Fatshark announced that the game will feature historically accurate weapons and armour, and will still feature the 64-player battles, as well as “Pitched Arena,” which will see 32-players. There will be a training ground, which all allow players the test their newly customised character. The customisation will include being able to change roles within a squad by using customised perks–and beards confirmed to be changeable. Any game mods will offer the ability to chop, dice, and other wise Viking up your enemy.

War of the Vikings is set to release early next year.
