'Fimbul' (ALL) Gets PS4 and PC Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 18, 2018 @ 9:50 a.m. PDT

Fimbul is inspired by the Saxo Grammaticus (the Danish Book of Kings) and intertwines northern European legend with a comic book-style narrative, exploration elements and a weapons-based combat system.

Derived from the long, cruel winter preceding the Viking apocalypse - better known as Ragnarok by all those au fait with Norse mythology - Fimbul tells the tale of an aging berserker Kveldulver, who travels through the frozen Midgard taking on Trolls and Jotuns to reclaim an ancient artifact that might, just might prevent the end of the world.

The non-linear story is heavily influenced by the player’s actions. Thanks to an autosave feature called “The Thread of Life”, players will be able to come back to crucial moments in the story to explore alternative branches at any moment. Fimbul will reward exploring its world with lots of secret areas and encounters that will shine a new light on the background of different characters.

The combat system is designed to be easy to learn but difficult to master. Kveldulver will have to get to grips with a wide variety of weaponry, matching up his arsenal with an array of different enemies taking him on in a range of diverse environments.


On his journey, the berserker will also encounter other Vikings which can be recruited into his party. Players will have to use their Vikings’ individual skills and different items to survive against enemy warriors and dangerous creatures like hungry wolves, monsters, and the giant Jotun.

Fimbul’s comic book style provides a gorgeous backdrop for players as they forge their own story. The “Lifestring” feature empowers Kveldulver, allowing him to return to earlier points in the story and walk different fated paths. During his adventure, he’ll meet many characters, some of whom are like-minded and willing to support him on his journey. Hidden areas, encounters, and stories provide multiple incentives to see all possible outcomes.

Fimbul is a comic-action-adventure coming to PS4 ad PC on Nov. 29, 2018, with a Switch release planned for early 2019.
