The Battle of Stamford Bridge will be the new historical battle added to the Vikings Invasion Expansion pack for Medieval Total War due out in May. The expansion pack will include a dozen new soldiers types. Players who take up the banner of Spain can recruit the all-new javelinmen units, players who play as Russia will be able to recruit steppe heavy cavalry, and players who side with Byzantium will be able to add lancers to their armies. A fierce new weapon called the organ gun is also introduced. The organ gun essentially consists of several large arquebuses (early precursors to the rifle) mounted on the same artillery structure This powerful new weapon will fire extremely damaging salvos that will cut into your enemies' numbers and morale.
