The popular Viking strategy game Northgard has launched on the Nintendo Switch. The French indie studio Shiro Games is also planning to launch their hit title on more platforms, with Northgard set to launch on the PlayStation 4 on Thursday, October 3rd, and the Xbox One on Friday, October 4th.
Northgard on console features all the content found in the Steam (Windows, Mac, Linux) base version including the major Ragnarok and Relics updates: six clans, a lengthy single-player story campaign, cooperative and competitive online play across various maps including the apocalyptic-themed Ragnarok, ranked play and much more. Shiro Games has also ensured that playing using the controller will be effortless, with many tweaks and a completely revamped user interface optimized for gamepads.
The critically acclaimed Northgard, which has sold more than 1 million units on Steam since its arrival in 2018, is a strategy game deeply ingrained with Norse mythology. Players take control of their chosen Viking clan to explore and settle new territories which are filled with untold riches and deadly magical foes, from dire wolves and undead warriors to giants and great dragons. To bring fame to their clan and write history, players will have to carefully manage their resources, trade with rival clans, befriend or defeat mythical creatures, brave the harshest winters and conquer unforgiving lands.
