The French indie studio Shiro Games has released their best-selling strategy game Northgard on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The arrival of the dedicated console version of the popular Viking RTS comes one week after the successful launch on the Nintendo Switch.
Northgard on console features all the content found in the Steam (Windows, Mac, Linux) base version including the major Ragnarok and Relics updates. This means: 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 manage their resources carefully, trade with rival clans, befriend or defeat mythical creatures, brave the harshest winters and conquer unforgiving lands.
