Swords & Soldiers II sends Redbeard and his gang of burly Vikings on an all-new side-scrolling strategy adventure.

Swords & Soldiers II Shawarmageddon is an action-packed real-time strategy experience, where tactical insight, planning, and timing are more important than maximizing your ‘actions per minute.’ It’s an accessible game with charming graphics and lots of great jokes (or horrible ones, if you don’t like puns), but don’t let that fool you - it’s also a great competitive game which features ample opportunity to surprise your opponents with creative strategies and ruthless counter-strategies.

In Swords & Soldiers II Shawaramageddon you command the Vikings, Demons, and Persian armies. You can take on the campaign or face off against other players in online multiplayer and challenge your friends in custom battles!

Gather resources, send out armies, and support your forces with a wide arsenal of magical spells - all from a side-scrolling perspective. That doesn’t mean Swords & Soldiers II Shawarmageddon is easy to master: only the most cunning of Chiefs can lead their side to victory! Think you're beard enough? Prove it in online matchmaking!

To celebrate the announcement of Swords & Soldiers II Shawarmageddon, we’re giving away the original Swords & Soldiers HD on Steam for the next 24 hours! All players have to do is visit the store page for the game on Steam and add it to their cart - it’ll be yours to keep forever. Pre-orders for the sequel are now available on Steam as well.

Furthermore, to get our community involved in the re-release, we’ve also launched a Kickstarter campaign that will see additional gameplay and cosmetic content added to the final release! We’re excited to reach out to our community like this, and work with them to make Swords & Soldiers II Shawarmageddon even more awesome. We had a lot of cool ideas during development that we weren’t able to fit into this re-release, but are excited to now put this into the hands of our fans. Through this campaign, players will also be able to secure beta access, additional in-game flair, and get involved in the development process!

Key Features:

  • Fresh gameplay - Offering a unique and action-packed take on the strategy genre, this game packs a punch!
  • Online Multiplayer - Command your armies, adapt to your opponents, and execute your perfected counter-strategies! Take on the world in online 1v1 multiplayer and climb the leaderboards!
  • Extensive single-player campaign - Follow the adventures of Redbeard the Viking as he follows the mysterious trail of missing sheep!
  • All across the world - Face off while commanding the Viking legion, an army of carpet-riding Persians, or brutish Demons! Each faction features unique units, spells, and resource-mechanics!
  • Build it your way! - Use the Custom Army feature to conscript an army consisting of your favorite units and spells, and pit them against your friends in a custom game!
  • Up for a challenge? - Think you got what it takes? Every campaign mission features a time challenge and bonus objective that will force you to try out new strategies and think on your feet.
  • Enlist mighty champions - A wise man once said "When the going gets tough, buy hero units!" Not only do these super units pack a mighty punch on the battlefield, each one of them also offers their own special ability!
  • Play while matchmaking - Nobody likes waiting, so we made sure you never have to! You can enter matchmaking while battling it out against the AI in Skirmish or going for a high score in the minigames, and will return to where you left off when your multiplayer match has ended.

Swords & Soldiers II Shawarmageddon is currently penciled in for a September 2018 release and will launch on Steam and PlayStation 4 at $19.99.
