Northgard artwork showing the new Clan of the Ox

[Update]: Northgard has just received its biggest and most important update yet - the Map Editor!

Northgard is a viking themed strategy game from the makers of Evoland, and as you might imagine, it's all about creating a thriving colony in an extremely hostile world. However, things have become even rougher recently as the latest DLC has brought in the Himminbrjotir, Clan of the Ox - a faction that is almost entirely geared towards conquest.

You can get a bit of an idea of what Clan of the Ox believes in, as well as how they prefer to fight, through the newest trailer. Have a gander, it's a pretty brief one:

In gameplay terms, Clan of the Ox units are 15% tougher and stronger, though they pay for that power by consuming 10% more food than the other clans. Similarly, specialized civilian units have a +30% production bonus (except Loremasters), while the buildings themselves can only hold one unit each.

Combine this with your leader Torfin growing stronger from equipment found in Ancient Battlegrounds, and it becomes very apparent very quickly that Clan of the Ox needs to play fast and aggressive. They simply cannot beat the other clans in terms of economy, so play to their strengths and harass your enemies at every opportunity.

You can learn more about Clan of the Ox, as well as Northgard itself, over at Steam. Have fun!
