When Vikings Attack announced for PS3, Vita

Including cross-play. Buy one version, get the other free.

XDev, one of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, lifted the lid on an all new downloadable title for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita today: When Vikings Attack.

The game brings together a group of local citizens, including a construction worker, a butcher, a policeman, a pastor, and a schoolboy, as they combat a horde of Vikings attacking the town. It features both adventure and versus modes that can be played with up to four players. It is a “full cross play/save/buy title,” meaning you can play online across any combination of platforms (two PS3s vs. two Vitas, or one Vita vs. three PS3s), share saves across platforms, and when you buy one version, you get the other free.

See the game in action below. Check out the first screenshots at the gallery.
