Kalypso Media and Games Farm have announced their brand new IP, Vikings – Wolves of Midgard. It’s a top-down, action RPG set in the Ragnarok conflict. You know the old Norse story about the world ending? No big deal. On PlayStation 4 and in early 2017 you’ll be able to battle undead monstrosities and beasts of the cataclysmic event. You can go at it alone or bear the burden with a friend in co-op mode while cutting through enemies with swords, two-handed hammers, dual wielded axes, and bows. You can also earn blood in battle to acquire special unlockables and powerful spells.
Fully realized maps of Midgard, Niflheim, and Balheim will have fantasy meet Nordic mythology. Nearly everything in the game is upgradable and destructible environments will help you defeat foes. The game will feature a new game+ mode and a Trials of the Gods challenge as well.
