Expeditions Viking has officially launched as of today. It is a game that allows players to take part as a Viking warrior of old. The task at hand is to invade Britain and decide your destiny: Tyrant or Trader?
In true cRPG fashion, the game puts players in the role of a leader of a small village. The job is to make your home strong, build relationships with the townsfolk as well as keep them safe from neighbors. Plotting and planning are central to the experience.
The gameplay experience includes:
- creating a unique Viking chief with a variety of stats, skills and abilities
- raiding or trading? It’s up to you decide
- war or side with Norsemen, Picts or Angles
- gain reputation for good or ill with other factions
- authentic history
- turn-based combat
As the newly appointed chieftain of a modest Viking clan, you’ll have a village of your very own. But to carve your name into the runestones of history you’ll need great strength, and great wealth to grow your village’s prosperity and renown. There is little left to be gained from the Norse lands and so you must set your sights on the the seas to the West, where tales speak of a great island filled with treasure ready for the taking.
