Critically acclaimed independent game developer Shiro Games announced today the upcoming steam early access release of their new project Northgard. In Northgard, the player takes control of a Viking clan who arrive on unknown and unforgiving shores, where they have to establish their village, gather resources, grow their society and defeat their opponents. In their quest to conquer a new and mysterious world, clans will face off against undead warriors, giants, dragons and other foes while surviving the harshest environments.
The Early Access version of Northgard allows players to:
- Build settlements on the newly discovered hostile continent of Northgard while assigning and commanding vikings to various jobs (Merchant, Farmer, Warrior, Sailor, Loremaster…)
- Manage resources carefully to survive the harsh winters and vicious enemies
- Expand and discover new territory giving unique strategic opportunities
