New units. Players can unlock two new types of units: Varangian Guards are the defenders of the royal family of the Kingdom of Empyros, and wield swords, shields, and axes to great effect. Handsomely compensated for their efforts, they deterred any threat as they fought their way through the North. Huskarls are Harald the Slaughterer’s personal guard and are considered to be among the most formidable warriors in the Northlands, and an inspiration to their comrades. The longer their Skald’s Song is sung, the greater its effect on their movement, attack rate, and armour penetration is.

Reworked maps. Today users can deploy their Viking raiders to battle in legendary Broch Eastray (June 9). Moreover, two more locations will be available soon: Aurelian (June 27), and Heilung Fjord (July 18). The third map of the season will come with all-new rainstorm weather. Rain will pour down with thunder and lightning wrought by Thor himself.

More information about the Season you can find on the official website.
