Beowulf is the great masterpiece of Anglo-Saxon literature. Dating back to the 6th century AD, this saga faithfully captures the archaic spirit of the early viking age. It can rightfully claim to be the ancestor of modern-day "Sword & Sorcery" and served as source of inspiration for many fantasy stories and novels, including J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of The Rings".

The Beowulf video game builds upon the original story and characters. You are Beowulf, the legendary warrior. BEOWULF is a third person action adventure with real time combat. Explore the northlands, fight enemies both natural and supernatural, and prove your worth among the heroes of the ancient north.

The extraordinary appeal of the Beowulf video game lies in its innovative fighting system that builds upon authentic techniques of medieval sword fencing. The game offers a unique mixture of adventure and beat-em-up elements. Powered by cutting-edge 3D technology and featuring a unique visual design, BEOWULF brings to new life the northern world of ancient times.

The game's website at www.beowulfgame.com offers a host of material and background information.
