Shiro have announced a brand new strategy and exploration game – Northgard.
Northgard is a Norse-inspired strategy game which has explorers discovering a new world filled with mystery and danger. Your job as the player is to help these explorers survive and thrive in this scary new land.
If you like those rad little dire wolves in Game of Thrones (not exclusively found in Game of Thrones, but you know what I mean) then you’ll be happy to know that they are in this game! There will be plenty of mystical creatures, including the aforementioned dire wolves, giants and undead warriors.
You’ll need to be a good player to keep your little explorers alive, as there are many dangers in this world. Did we mention there will be harsh winters in addition to the creatures? Surviving is definitely going to be a challenge. The player will control their explorers and allow them to explore, trade and of course, defeat you enemies in battle.
Shiro’s most recent game, Evoland 2 (released in August 2015), was recently awarded the Innovation Award at 2015’s European Indie Game Days.
Northgard is currently being developed for the PC. A release date for this game is unknown, but you can keep an eye on the Northgard website to keep up to date with any developments.
