Ah, them Vikings! Gotta love them.
The teaser trailer for Vikings – Wolves of Midgard is more than a teaser trailer. We get a good dose of gameplay, which looks very similar to Diablo. Ah, gotta love those STEAM games!
The Action RPG transports you to the world of the Vikings and Ragnarok and all them gods. There’s a battle going on, villages being sacked, evil creatures lurking and it’s your job to defend and revenge. Or something like that. Save the world, basically. With your war-hammer and Viking might!
You are either a kick-butt Viking dude or a kick-butt shieldmaiden. Online co-op allows for double the butt-kicking.
There are all types of creatures to battle, including small monsters to wild animals to Frost Giants. In the linear top-down world, the terrain is only eye-candy as battles don’t seem to rely on tactical use of the surroundings.
In addition to your trusty war-hammer, the ability to use magic is key. One of the more interesting spells happen at :47. Bad scary goblins become cuddly pigs. Bacon, anyone?
For a teaser trailer, there’s a lot of game already made, but it won’t be ready until early 2017. Pre-purchase is available now on STEAM.
