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

The rather stylish viking themed strategy game Northgard made its way onto Steam Early Access in February of last year. In my initial review I found it to be pretty darn good, albeit heavily lacking in terms of content. With that in mind, I am very glad to say that Northgard has now finally left Early Access alongside a brand new singleplayer campaign, as well as a variety of different clans to play around with!

You can get a good peek at what all of this looks like in-game through two of the recently posted trailers. The first one is your general "here's what the game's about" video, while the second one is entirely focused on the singleplayer campaign and the story you'll be following throughout it. Have a gander:


While I consider Northgard to be a great deal of fun, it's important to mention that it is not the deepest or most complex of strategy games. It can get surprisingly difficult and you'll probably lose a couple of matches before you get used to the gameplay, but the actual mechanics behind all of it are fairly straightforward. I don't consider this as a negative in any sense, but if you're a hardcore RTS fan it is something you should at least know before diving in.

You can learn more about Northgard, or just grab yourself a copy, by visiting either the official website or Steam. And finally, I'll leave you with a couple of images, just to help set the mood. Have fun, and good luck with your first winter!
