Vikings: Wolves of Midgard Hacks and Slashes Through Norse Mythology Next Month

Announced back in 2015, Kalypso Media Digital and Games Farm’s Norse mythology themed chase-and-chop action RPG Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is approaching the end of its development journey. It’s been announced that the game will be out beginning March 24th globally via Steam and at retail across Europe on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Then, on March 28th, the retail and digital console launches will take place in the US.

A new trailer’s been released highlighting the game’s main gameplay features, including the godly special powers, village building and weapon crafting systems, two player co-op support, and epic boss battles. You’ll also want to pop over to the Steam Community and read the thorough FAQ that’s been posted.

This game’s actually coming at the perfect time for me, as I’m just digging into Neil Gaiman’s new novel Norse Mythology (watch for a review soon!) so the setting and themes are fresh in my mind. Combine that with my love for isometric hack-and-slash action RPGs, and Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is hitting my sweet spot dead on. Thankfully the game itself looks like it represents the genre very well indeed.
