Thanks to the success of History Channel epic Vikings which premiered in 2013 and has a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 93 percent, the Norse Seafarers are back in the mainstream with a bang. Hence, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of games made about the Scandinavian warriors in recent years. For players who want to get a real taste of Viking life and become a battle-hardened savage themselves, Vikings: War of Clans is a great choice to download for PC.
Vikings: War of Clans is a freemium game from Plarium, the mobile and PC games developer famous for creating a wide range of other massively multiplayer online games such as Terminator Genisys: Future War and Sparta: War of Empires. For those who aren’t familiar with the format of freemium games, it means that players can download the title for free, but then have the option to pay for in-game things such as upgrades and weapons. So players of Vikings have the option to enjoy it as a fun way to fill the time, or they could invest in it and turn it into a serious hobby. Obviously, the more money spent in the game, the more options available to the player.
According to SimilarWeb, Vikings: War of Clans has a Google Play Rank of number 20 in the Strategy Games category in the USA, and has a number 11 Usage Rank in Canada. These impressive ratings are due to the fact that MMOs are a hugely popular genre at the moment, but also because the game provides a highly immersive experience and can rival the likes of Clash of Clans.
In the Viking strategy game, players are tasked with cooperating with other users and creating a powerful clan. They need to build a Viking town, train warriors, and attack enemy villages in the hope of conquering them and expanding their own legacies. This is, of course, all done under the watchful guidance of Odin. Players who really want to discover the way of the Vikings can read more on the official website before getting started. That way, they may one day be able to enter the halls of Asgard and sit among them.
The joy of Vikings: War of Clans is the fact that nearly everything is done online with cooperation from other players. In the Viking town you create, you must establish a hierarchy with the other members from ranker to chief. After that you are tasked with going out to find resources such as lumber, iron, food, stone, and silver, along with the in-game currency which is gold. You can then use these things to upgrade your buildings, train your troops, or craft new and improved weapons. The aim of the game is to then capture the “Place of Power,” which is in the centre of every kingdom.
If you like in-depth games which require you to spend a lot of time building up your characters and buildings, Vikings: War of Clans is up there with some of the best MMOs on the market. The fact that it uses a highly popular period of history for its central theme will add to the appeal for many.
