Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is an upcoming action RPG, or hack and slash if you prefer that term, modeled after the Diablo series. Much like its inspiration Wolves of Midgard features a variety of enemies to chop in half, a whole bunch of loot and abilities to mess around with, and naturally, multiple difficulty levels in order to allow you to play your character for as long as you wish.

If you're interested in a brief overview of all these features, as well as a couple of glimpses at pure gameplay, you'll find the most recent trailer right below. Before you dive in I would suggest you increase your volume slightly as the soundtrack is quite ominous, but also quite intriguing at the same time. Anyway, here's the video:

"Legend has it that when the coldest winter descends, the Jotan will return to take their vengeance against the Gods of Asgard. The world is on the road to perdition and the fate of Midgard hangs in the balance. But when the Fire and Frost Giants begin to merge their armies, they encounter the clan of the Ulfung – the Wolves of Midgard.

Bloody, but unbowed following the destruction of their village, this notorious band of ostracized Viking warriors are determined to seize their destiny and save the world. As clan chief, you must save Midgard from complete annihilation, and spearhead the charge to vanquish the fiendish creatures of the Fimbulwinter."

You can expect to see Vikings: Wolves of Midgard this March 24th on both the PC and consoles. If you would like to learn more, or just check out a couple of other gameplay videos, you can find what you seek on Steam. But if you're just wondering about the presence of multiplayer, worry not as there is indeed online co-op, though its unfortunately limited to two players only. And as a final note, here's a couple of images showing the totally historically accurate vikings in action:
