Medieval: Total War – Viking Invasion challenges you to control eight new factions, including the Vikings themselves, the Saxons, Scots, Irish, Welsh and Picts, and embark on a campaign to dominate the British Isles. With a wealth of new historical heroes, you’ll lead a range of new units into battle, including Viking Berserkers, Saxon Huscarles and Fyrdmen, while conducting sieges enhanced by the introduction of flaming arrows and boiling oil.
* Three new playable factions: The Aragonese, the Sicilians, and the Hungarians.
* New units for many factions, including elite Arabic Faris cavalrymen, Russian Druhzina Cavalry, Hungary Jobbagy Infantry, and the fearsome, amazing Organ Gun – a Medieval ?machine gun? of sorts!
* A new pre-battle system that allows you to scout out enemy forces and organise your reinforcements before a battle.
* Boiling oil in sieges! Beware of sending your men to attack the castle gates!
* Tweaks, changes and improvements to gameplay, including a couple of new buildings on the technology tree!
