Viking Conquest for PC is the second official expansion pack for 2010's Mount & Blade: Warband, which itself is a stand-alone expansion pack, created for Mount & Blade an action-RPG sandbox game set in a quasi medieval world and released in 2005. Viking Conquest was created on the basis of the Brytenwalda modification and co-produced by its creators, who helped the devs from the TaleWorlds studio.

Gameplay

Viking Conquest is set in the medieval Britain and Scandinavia (terrains belonging to today's Denmark and Norway). The expansion brings both different multiplayer modes (such as Coastal Assault or Warlord) and a singleplayer component which offers a new story campaign and a traditional sandbox module.

The story campaign focuses on the events from the second half of the 9th century, when the sons of a Nordic leader Ragnar Lodbrok organized non-coordinated plundering expeditions to the kingdoms of the eastern Britain (those belonged to Angles and Saxons) over several years. The player has to cope in these hard times, engaging into fights and political intrigues that affect the world. One is required to make the right decisions as to whom will they become allied with and who will be the enemy.

The new map included here comprises over 300 towns, villages, castles, etc. Those represent 21 different kingdoms and 6 cultures. The game world is inhabited by hundreds of NPCs, 200 of which are historical figures. Since the British Isles are separated from Scandinavia by a vast body of water, an ability to both travel by sea and fight on the waters was implemented here. The player is capable of constructing and buying new ships, as well as gathering crews for naval plundering expeditions. Notably, seas and lands are mechanically synchronized, thus one can attack and plunder coastal settlements for example.

The creators remained faithful to the historical facts, which results not only in the presence of the aforementioned, historical characters, but also in the implementation of those items, formations and combat units that were made use of in the historical period. It is also worth noticing, that the game offers a complex system of religion, as well as an opportunity to create one's own camps. The mechanics behind laying sieges were also enriched in this expansion.

Technical aspects

Viking Conquest for PC utilizes the same engine the base game was powered by although the visuals present are average-quality at best, several improvements were introduced. What also went through changes in this expansion, are such technical aspects as the in-game AI, which was improved.
