Yesterday, developer Shiro Games’ Viking strategy game Northgard released onto PC via Steam Early Access for $19.99 USD (not including the 20% discount that lasts until March 1st). And to celebrate, the developer has released the game’s launch trailer.
Never heard of Northgard before? No problem — here’s an overview, courtesy of Shiro Games:
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 the harshest winters ever witnessed in the North.
Build your settlement on the newly discovered continent of Northgard
Assign your vikings to various jobs (Farmer, Warrior, Sailor, Loremaster…)
Manage your resources carefully and survive harsh winters and vicious foes
Expand and discover new territory with unique strategic opportunities
Achieve different victory conditions (Conquest, Fame, Lore, Trading…)
Play against an AI with different difficulty levels and personalities
