Kalypso Media and Games Farm have revealed Vikings – Wolves of Midgard, a new action RPG coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC in early 2017.
From the press release on the Kalypso forums:
Legend has it, that when the coldest winter descends, the Jotan will return to take their vengeance against the Gods of Asgard. The world is on the road to perdition and the fate of Midgard hangs in the balance. But when the Fire and Frost Giants begin to merge their armies, they encounter the clan of the Ulfung – the Wolves of Midgard. Bloody, but unbowed following the destruction of their village, this notorious band of ostracized Viking warriors are determined to seize their destiny and save the world. As clan chief, you must save Midgard from complete annihilation, and spearhead the charge to vanquish the fiendish creatures of the Fimbulwinter.
The developer has promised an epic story spread over three beautifully detailed regions and the ability to play as either a fearsome warrior or a deadly shieldmaiden. The title boasts many other interesting features including legendary weapons, god powers and destructive environments. An online co-op mode was also mentioned. Check out the Kalypso forum for many more details.
Vikings – Wolves of Midgard comes to PC and consoles in early 2017. Until then, feast your eyes on the screenshots below and prepare for Ragnarok!
