A new faction has come to the free-to-play RTS Age of Empires Online, and they come from the northern reaches of Scandinavia: the Norse civilization.
As one might expect, the Norse are an offense-minded civ, as they can churn out infantry for a good old-fashioned Zerg Rush. The comparison to the Starcraft faction is furthered by the powerful Scouts and Seers who are both masters at spying on enemies, the latter summoning Ravens to fly over the map.
The Norse key units include:
* Throwing Axeman * Berserker * War Dog * Seer * Chief * Raider
* War Dog
The Norse unique structures include:
* Longhouse * Outpost
The Norse faction comes out later this month of October. Check out more info about the Norse on the official site.
