About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'Tribes of Midgard' Gets Launch Date for PS4, PS5 and PC - Screens & Trailer

by Judy on June 10, 2021 @ 7:50 p.m. PDT

Tribes of Midgard is a cooperative survival game where up to 10 players fiercely fight Giants during Ragnarök.

The Asgardian Gods and the Giants of Jotunheim battle endlessly. Fed up with the constant trickery and deception of the Gods, the Giants have decided to invade Asgard. Much to the dismay of the Vikings of Midgard, the Giants must pass through their realm and regard humanity's impending destruction as a necessary casualty of war. Ragnarök, the death and rebirth of the nine realms, has begun. Yet not all is lost, for the resolute Viking warriors will defend the seeds of the world tree Yggdrasil that binds all realms and protect the Gods.

Customize your character, form a tribe and explore procedurally-generated worlds full of fabled resources and creatures. Defend your village at night from the legions of Hel, and prepare for the Giants' mighty arrival. Grow ever-stronger by surviving each day, feeding enemy souls to Yggdrasil, and crafting new equipment with the help of the townsfolk. Hack-and-slash combat makes each battle a gripping affair, and weapon-based special moves provide an incentive to search for the rarest materials, whether they come from dangerous faraway lands or the corpses of Giants.

Explore Viking mythology through beautifully hand-painted cel-shaded artwork. Orchestral music solely using instruments from the Viking era sets an ominous tone for the coming apocalypse. Ragnarök is inevitable, but fight fiercely and die a glorious death to ensure the tribe's brave souls arrive at the gates of Valhalla. Should the seed of Yggdrasil be destroyed, the world collapses and the game is over. Come back stronger and fight for the realm.


Tribes of Midgard will launch July 27, 2021 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC (Steam).

Tribes of Midgard is the right kind of game for anyone who wants to test their Viking skills. People who want to play solo can face a great challenge on their own, and folks who want to play with friends will have a blast – we think we’ve found the perfect balance,” says Julian Maroda, Co-Founder, CEO, and Creative Director at Norsfell. “We’ve poured our hearts and souls into this game, and what came out is a bright, lively world with engaging, class-based co-op combat that players can explore and survive together.”

Preorder the standard edition of Tribes of Midgard on the PlayStation Store and Steam for $19.99 USD, or the deluxe edition, featuring platform-exclusive armor, weapons and pets, for $29.98 USD on Steam and $29.99 USD on the PlayStation Store.
