Viking Invasion - The Remake

MrJadeMrJade Senior MemberLansing, MIRegistered Users Posts: 7,165
This game looks interesting, but it just looks like a more focused remake of Viking Invasion, namely the British Isles without Scandinavia and starting a few years later.

The factions selection even looks the same in that it is Anglo-Saxons, Irish, Scots, and Nords. I love the Viking Invasion, I just hope that CA isn't getting into a Disney-esque reboot kick.

    Viking Invasion is very old man, I think rebooting it is the right move and it fits well with the other content that followed Attila's release: Attila - Last Roman - Charlemagne - Vikings. It moves the time forward and covers a much loved era by many.

    And when you think about it, what are Medieval 2, Rome 2 and Shogun 2 if not sort of reboots of the previous titles , they all cover the same era of their prequel but improve it with new graphics and features etc.

    Isnt Viking Invasion happened much earlier?

    I think is is more like late Viking Invasion period.

    I love it and love the fact that it is a standalone game so it will get the proper attention it deserves. Viking Invasion was just an expansion so this is the REAL DEAL!

    The original MTW Viking Invasion expansion was from the same era as the Charlemagne campaign. The popular RTW mod, Viking Invasion II, which was so good it almost felt official, was very much the era of the upcoming Britannia Saga, though. However, it's high time CA covered the era officially, so I'm really looking forward to this one...:)

    It starts about 80 years earlier but certainly goes into this time period. Attila likewise started a little later than Barbarian Invasion and ended before it did, but is basically a remake.

    Charlemagne did start in the same era, but ended also much sooner.

    I just hope that they do the era justice and that the map is good. Charlemagne was rather fun, but felt shallow.

    How I wish Charlamagne was a stand-alone title as well...
