There have been many games based on viking themes. These games have varied greatly in terms of their level of quality. However, Shiro Games has developed a viking game that is one of the best to come down the pike in quite some time. “Northgard” is the name of this epic adventure. There is a lot to love about this game. It takes you into a beautiful world that is filled with many different environments. You will be building cities in thick forests and mountain ranges that are covered with snow. You will need to manage a number of different problems in order to survive.
Food is scarce in most of the locations where the game takes place. Therefore, you will need to scavenge for food and store it away so you will be able to use it when you need it the most. You will be able to acquire food in a number of different ways. You can kill animals to use for meat. You can also steal it or trade for it. There are pros and cons to each decision that you make in the game. The key is to make decisions that impact you and your viking community positively in the long run.
What would a viking game be without lots of battles with swords and axes? “Northgard” will not disappoint you where battle scenes are concerned. There is plenty of fighting and blood to be spilled as you protect your land and your treasure from those who would seek to take it from you. You will need to have a variety of skills in order to truly master every aspect of this game. You will obviously need to be a great fighter. However, you will also need to be a good strategist and have the ability to plan ahead for the needs of your community. Running out of food in the winter because you didn’t store enough is a mistake you can’t afford to make.
