Playdius announced that the CCCP developed survival RPG Dead in Vinland will launch on PC and Mac on April 12.
Dead in Vinland is a story-driven adventure game that has the players manage a family of Vikings who must survive after being exiled. Players will be able to manage each of the family members over the course of 70 non-linear quests to reach the end of the game. However, the game’s conclusion is decided on the choices made by the player and how well they managed the family.
“We’re overjoyed to release at last our little baby after 2 years of intense development! We can’t wait to see how players will struggle to survive and see the end of this journey into Hell, and what strategies they will discover that even ourselves weren’t aware of,” said Matthieu Richez, CEO of CCCP and Lead Game Designer. “We’ll offer a good beer to the first player who reaches the end of the game in hard + true Viking mode… Good luck!”
During gameplay, players are introduced to up to 14 playable characters as the family slowly turns into a community over the course of the game. However, players should be prepared to take into consideration a character’s strengths and weaknesses and expect possible romances or even betrayals.
Additionally, there are over 150 map areas with hundreds of objects to interact with as players venture around the island. Also, the game features a turn-based 3v3 battle system where players must create a party of five character classes and chose the fighting style appropriately to be successful in battle.
