Sharpen your axe and ready your clan for war – the first trailer for Kalypso Media’s upcoming Action RPG Vikings – Wolves of Midgard is here. The new trailer showcases the brutal hand-to-hand combat and devastating magical spells that Viking warriors and Shieldmaidens will unleash in early 2017, alongside a brief taste of the stunning locations and gruesome enemies that players will face as you rebuild your village and protect your clan from mythological enemies and the Norse end-of-times – Ragnarok.
Alongside the new trailer, Kalypso Media is excited to announce the launch of a Steam pre-purchase promotion. Early adopters can secure themselves a 15% discount for Vikings – Wolves of Midgard along with an exclusive pack containing an additional outfit for both male and female warriors, consisting of an additional tattoo, hairstyle and clan symbol, as well as a new beard style for male characters and tribal jewelry for female characters. Also included is a digital art book showcasing a range of stunning illustrations and paintings, and a digital soundtrack featuring the game’s sweeping, atmospheric musical score.
Launching on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Windows PC, Mac and Linux in early 2017, Vikings – Wolves of Midgard will transport you to the Shores of Midgard, a world rooted in the mythology and history of the Vikings. Battle the fearsome Jotan, hordes of terrifying undead monstrosities and other myriad beasts of Ragnarok, either on your own or by teaming up with a friend via the online co-op multiplayer mode. Master mighty weapons, including sword and shield, two-handed hammers, dual-wielded axes and swift bows. Earn blood in battle to offer in tribute to the Gods in order to acquire and enhance devastating Spell Powers and other special unlockables. As well as the regular story mode (and New Game+), players can also test their mettle in the ‘Trials of the Gods’ – a special challenge mode that rewards the best warriors with special equipment and runes.
