Northgard is a strategy game deeply ingrained with Norse mythology. In this Viking strategy game, 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. They will face mystical creatures like dire wolves and undead warriors roaming the land, giants that they can befriend or defeat, and 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.
Northgard was released on Steam Early Access on February 22nd, 2017 and quickly became one of the most popular strategy games on the platform, selling over 1 million copies. The game officially launched out of Early Access on March 7th, 2018, and was one of the highest-rated PC games to be released in the year, with a Metascore of 80.
A dedicated console version of Northgard launched on the Nintendo Switch on the 26th of September, with a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releasing on October 3rd and 4th respectively.
