I'm afraid that today I am the bringer of bad news. After much consideration and discussion we have decided that it's time we close down the servers for War of the Vikings / Roses. This was not an easy decision to make as we know we have an awesome community that supports this game but, sadly, all good things must come to an end.
The servers will be shut down on February 28th 2017 and we are currently in the process of removing it from Steam, our own store, our partners as well as turning the in-game store off. Also, before you ask, no, I'm afraid we won't be able to implement a LAN option for you to host your own games as we don't have developers working on the the game.
We want to thank all of our players for supporting the game over the years since it was released and we really hope you enjoyed yourselves!
