From Kalyspo Media and Games Farm, Vikings: Wolves of Midgard was announced today for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC/Mac/Linux.

Scheduled for release in early 2017, Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is an action-RPG set in the Shores of Midgard where you play as the clan chief of the Ulfung – the Wolves of Midgard.

As the list of features details, Vikings includes a single-player story mode, online co-op, unlockable and upgradeable Spell Powers, a New Game+ mode, and Trials of the Gods – a challenge mode where the best warriors get special equipment and runes:

  • The Deadly Fimbulwinter: Withstand the deathly colds and protect yourself from exposure to nature‚Äôs wrath in order to survive.
  • Tribute to the Gods: Collect blood from fallen enemies and sacrifice it at the altar to gain gifts from the Gods to enhance your powers.

  • The art of combat: Perfect your skills with each weapon to unlock their true potential, including swords, bows and spell-powered canes.
  • The Power of the Gods: Make the abilities of the Gods your own by equipping power-infused amulets, like the Talismans of Thor or Loki. Put your new skills to the test by competing in the Trials of the Gods to earn further rewards.
  • Teamwork: Team up with a friend and journey to the Shores of Midgard together in an epic two player online co-op mode. Choose between four difficulty levels to suit your skills and talents. Do you dare attempt the unrelenting hardcore mode?
  • The Clan of Wolves: Restore and rebuild your village and lead your clan to glory. Upgrade buildings such as weaponsmith, armourer, runesmith, and mead hall to unlock more content and better equipment.
  • Legendary Weapons: Gather the scattered fragments of mythical weapons and armors to take on the most fearsome creatures of the realms.
  • A Class of its Own: Become even more powerful in the next life by attempting New Game+, and push your Viking warrior or shieldmaiden to their limit.
