Vikings: Wolves of Midgard (Video)
Vikings: Wolves of Midgard
“Fear the wolves, especially in winter. They are cold, they are hungry – and they will stop at nothing to survive…”
Legend has it that when the coldest winter descends, the Jotan – giants of the Outyards – will take their vengeance against the gods of Asgard, thus heralding the start of Ragnarok – the war to end all things. But when the Jotan began to unite the Fire and Frost Giants under their flag, they crossed paths with an outcast clan of Vikings called the Ulfung – the Wolf Clan. This marks the point in time when the fate of the Gods, and all of Midgard, fell into the hands of one mere mortal.
Enter the Shores of Midgard, a world based upon the mythology and history of the Vikings, but with a fantasy twist.

Master mighty weapons, including the sword and shield, two-handed hammers, dual-wielded axes and swift bows to unlock fearsome Battle Powers. Earn blood in battle to offer in tribute to the Gods in order to acquire and enhance devastating Spell Powers as well as unlocking intriguing Gifts.
