Game release: “Vikings – Wolves of Midgard” (PC,PS4,Xbox One)

It’s hot summer time again, so what better way than to get into the brutal and cold RPG-action world of Games Farm‘s Vikings – Wolves of Midgard?

With so many game releases it’s always a difficult task to cover everything, especially if you’re on your own with even less time, so sometimes a few titles can’t be written about on time due to many circumstances. This is one such example, as it disappeared from my radar despite looking extremely cool (pun intended). Even if the Diablo influences can’t be overlooked, the North mythology makes it a different storytelling beast revolving around the Wolves of Midgard, a clan of Viking warriors that want to save their world from Fire and Frost Giants. What ensues is less of a contemplative journey like in Jotun and more of a bloody battle against monsters.

Some of these monsters are quite big, making for some impressive boss battles. In general, the graphics are pretty good, with lots of lighting and weather effects in addition to nice backgrounds and creature design. But of course the gameplay also has to hold up, and it’s business as usual with slaying enemies and leveling up with various skills. Activating rage mode to overcome hordes of enemies isn’t new, either, but it creates even more carnage on the already bloody battlefield. The violence isn’t simply gratuitous, because collecting blood from fallen enemies and sacrificing it at an altar brings gifts from the Gods to enhance one’s powers. Finally teaming up with a friend online or in couch co-op is the cherry on the ice-cream (again pun intended).

The game was released in March in digital and retail form on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. With new updates (like the couch co-op) and bugfixes, this should be a much smoother experience than it was from the start, again showing that waiting a bit rewards those patient enough.
