'Northgard' (ALL) Comes to Switch, PS4 and Xbox One Later This Year - Screens & Trailer

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.


Northgard’s console versions feature all the content found in the base Steam release, including the major Relics and Ragnarok updates: six clans, a lengthy campaign, co-operative and competitive online modes across a variety of maps featuring the apocalyptic-themed Ragnarok, ranked play, and much more. Shiro Games has crafted a controller layout that makes playing feel effortless, revamping the experience with a completely new user interface.

“We are very happy to reveal we are bringing Northgard to all three consoles later this year,” said Sebastien Vidal, CEO and co-founder, Shiro Games. “We have worked hard to optimize Northgard for the controller and to be played on the go in the Switch version. All the content of the original version will be available at launch. This includes the campaign mode, multiplayer, all six clans and much more!”

Key Features:

  • Build your settlement on the newly discovered continent of Northgard
  • Grow the village by assigning Vikings to various jobs (Farmer, Warrior, Sailor, Loremaster)
  • Choose between six different Viking clans, each with unique benefits, buildings and units
  • Manage your resources carefully to survive the harsh winters and vicious foes
  • Expand and discover new territory with unique strategic opportunities
  • Achieve different victory conditions such as Conquest, Fame, Lore and Trading
  • Play against your friends or against an AI with different difficulty levels in single player or multiplayer modes.
  • Follow the brave Viking Rig in his quest for vengeance in a brand-new single player campaign that spans over 11 chapters.  

Currently available on PC (Steam), Northgard is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and Switch later this year.
