War of the Vikings will launch in full for PC on April 15, following a stint on Steam Early Access and other online distributors. Publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Fatshark plan to announce new features and release plans during a Twitch livestream today, March 5, at 2PM ET.

Executive Producer Gordon Van Dyke will host the stream and play the latest version of the game.

War of the Vikings is a close-quarter combat game set in Britannia during the Viking Age (but you probably already guessed that part). It's built with the same tech as Fatshark's previous close-quarters game, War of the Roses.

We're getting in on the viking action with a livestream featuring the developers on April 8, right on the Joystiq Twitch channel.
