'Northgard' Comes To Steam Early Access Next Month - Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 19, 2017 @ 10:52 a.m. PST

Northgard is a strategy game deeply ingrained with Norse mythology in which brave explorers have discovered a new world filled with mystery and danger, where players are tasked to help them survive and thrive in a hostile land.

After years of tireless explorations, brave Vikings have discovered a new land filled with mystery, danger and riches: Northgard.

The boldest Northmen have set sail to explore and conquer these new shores, bring fame to their Clan and write history through conquest, trading, or devotion to the Gods. That is, if they can survive the dire wolves and undead warriors roaming the land, befriend or defeat the giants, and survive winters so harsh even the boldest Vikings will shiver!

To conquer the new world and become its master, the explorers have different strategies to lead their clan to greatness: explore, trade, or defeat your enemies in battle.

In Northgard, the player takes control of a Viking clan who arrive on unknown and unforgiving shores, where they have to establish their village, gather resources, grow their society and defeat their opponents. In their quest to conquer a new and mysterious world, clans will face off against undead warriors, giants, dragons and other foes while surviving the harshest environments.


Shiro Games will launch on Steam Early Access on the 22nd of February.

The Early Access version of Northgard allows players to:

  • Build settlements on the newly discovered hostile continent of Northgard while assigning and commanding vikings to various jobs (Merchant, Farmer, Warrior, Sailor, Loremaster...)
  • Manage resources carefully to survive the harsh winters and vicious enemies
  • Expand and discover new territory giving unique strategic opportunities
  • Achieve different victory conditions such as Conquest, Fame, Lore, Trading

Early Access is just the start for Northgard with Shiro Games continuing to add new content to the game during development. Extra features planned include a full dedicated multiplayer mode, a campaign mode, two more playable clans and a host of new features such as a diplomacy system and more victory conditions.
