Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior's Viking heralds an October closed beta

Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior won't quite make its previously-scheduled September closed beta window. It's now set to deploy in October and Torn Banner Studios is accompanying the announcement with more details on the ferocious Viking.

The Viking will be the only class in the game that can dual-wield one-handed weapons. He can also go into a berseker rage, increasing the speed of his combos as he goes. One of the more balanced characters in terms of health and speed, the Viking can carry a shield and then proceed to toss it like a projectile.

You can check out the Viking in action in the trailer below. The final version of Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior is expected to arrive on PC later this fall and you can get a taste of what to expect in our preview.
