Explore the Treacherous Northgard
Norse mythology has made appearances in a lot of recent video games. Now, the strategy Viking adventure titled Northgard will soon release to Android gamers. Set in the newly discovered titular land of Northgard, players manage Vikings as they explore the dangerous world around them. Gameplay includes building settlements, assigning Vikings to various jobs, managing resources, and expanding into new territory.
Northgard originally released on PC, console and iOS devices and sold over 2 million copies. Publisher Playdigious promises a revamped interface carefully designed for Android mobile. In addition, cloud saves are also included, allowing for players to share their progress between Android devices.
Avenge the Viking King
Along with basic management and exploration, Northgard features its own story mode. You play as Rig, who must avenge the killing of his father, the Viking High King, by retrieving the Regal Horn stolen by his murderer, the evil Hagen. Rig and his right-hand men need to traverse the continent of Northgard to find Hagen. Along the way, Rig searches for the reasons behind his father’s assassination and encounters a threat greater than any he’s faced before.
The game also provides a choice of clans for players to join. Each clan has its own devotion, with one focusing on guerilla tactics while another teaches the art of blacksmithing. The clans are available as add-on bundles, with the Clans of the Snake, Dragon and Kraken available in the Scale Bundle. The Fur Bundle features the Clans of the Horse, Ox and Lynx. The clans are also available as a separate DLC.
Lovers of Norse myths and strategy games should feel at home with Northgard. The game releases on August 24th priced at $8.99 on the Google Play Store. People who pre-register for the game get a 30% launch discount.
We are always hesitantly excited to see another PC port to Android. Stay tuned for the Hardcore Droid review.
