May 25, 2012Written by Nick Michetti

Sony’s XDev has announced When Vikings Attack, a PSN action/brawler title from Clever Beans for PS3 and PlayStation Vita.

On the PS Blog, XDev Associate Producer Neil McPhillips revealed the game, which is set in a town that’s invaded by a battalion of Vikings. A local group of citizens bands together to fend off the Viking invaders and the citizens can pick up or destroy objects to use against the them.

The game has both adventure and Versus gameplay modes that can be played by 1-4 players and is a full cross play/save/buy title. Nearly any combination of four players on PS3 and Vita can get together to play the game: two PS3s and two Vitas, three Vitas and one PS3, one PS3 with three players and one player on Vita and more. Cross-platform save is supported for Adventure mode progress, regardless of where players are in the game, and saves can be uploaded or downloaded from PS3 or Vita. Also, if users buy one version of When Vikings Attack, they’ll automatically receive the other for free.

Multiplayer-wise, the game supports full local and online multiplayer modes.

Finally, When Vikings Attack is scheduled to release later this year.
