The Game Review

The plot of the Northgard concerns the prince Rig. The main character sets out on a journey to Northgard for a reason – he is chasing Hegan – the murderer of his father, and the thief of the royal horn. Prince Rig travels with his most faithful companion – Brand from the Clan of Stag. The player (and of course the main characters) win new allies in the eponymous land of and unite more and more clans, which will then help Rig to avenge his father and contribute to the discovery of Northgard secrets.

Northgard draws from a handful of RTS classics, such as The Settlers and Age of Empires. Due to the plot set in the far harsh north, in the game, you will find elements of the survival genre. What’s more, one of the most important tasks for the players is to guarantee the survival of their own clans and live through the long, very cold winters. Amazingly – in contrast to other games – in Northgard you have to limit the number of buildings to just a few, usually from two to five. This is very important because this forces you to conquer the neighboring lands and allows you to plan tactically. You observe the world of Northgard from an isometric view.

To win, players must meet one of several conditions, such as reaching the center of the map first before other Vikings, defeating enemy tribes, and acquiring the appropriate level of fame in the eponymic land. Enemies in the game are not only other clans but also, for example, zombie fighters, mythical creatures, and bloodthirsty wolves. You will also stumble upon mythical, mighty and beautiful dragons. Also, do not forget that during the game, you may encounter powerful giants with whom you can try to make friends or start fighting right away. You must not forget to be on your guard – enemies can lurk around the corner and attack at any moment.

It is worth noting that can play Northgard also in the co-op with another player. in its review gives Northgard a score of 9 out of 10.

Northgard is an RTS, in which you fight for dominance in the newly discovered land full of magic, riches and secrets. Download the game and show who is the most powerful warrior of the North.
