Northgard gameplay screenshot showing snow and a giant sword

Northgard is a viking themed real-time strategy game from the makers of Evoland, and if I had to do a needlessly specific comparison I would also say that Northgard is a simpler, but more action orientated take on the Civilization formula. What I mean by this is that Northgard shares a similar focus on city-building, resource micromanagement, and open-ended playstyles that allow you to take your frontier settlement in whatever direction you might prefer.

If you're wondering what all of this looks like in action, here's a brief gameplay video showcasing the first 15 minutes of a game against three hard AI:
