Vikings: Wolves of Midgard

A hack-and-slash role-playing game set in a world inspired by Norse myths, developed by Games Farm and Kalypso Media. The protagonist is Ulfung, a Viking clan chieftain, whose village is completely destroyed, while he becomes the leader of the surviving warriors in their quest to try to save Midgard from Ragnarok. Mechanics-wise, the game is clearly inspired by the popular Diablo series. At the start, you choose your warrior's gender and class, and then explore a range of locations and eliminate hordes of enemies. Apart from the more mundane weapons such as war hammers, axes, swords and bows, you can also use special items and amulets, which affect your character's abilities. Vikings: Wolves of Midgard features an interesting character development system, the option of rebuilding your village step by step, and an apocalyptic winter you have to seek shelter from, e.g. by looking for any heat sources.

Plot

You play as a Viking clan chieftain named Ulfung, whose village is destroyed, and he becomes the leader of the surviving warriors in order to save Midgard. The story takes place during Ragnarok, the great war between gods and giants, which is said to happen at the end of the world. The fate of your clan, village, and the whole humanity is in your hands.

Mechanics

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard can be described ad Diablo III, but set in the world of Norse myths. At the start, you choose your character's gender, class and appearance, and then you move on to the proper gameplay, which doesn't differ much from the hit game by Blizzard Entertainment. You explore a range of locations and fight hordes of enemies you encounter there. You fight various creatures, big and small, and dispatch them with warhammers, axes, swords or bows. Some of them are light weapnry, while others are two-handed. You can also fight with two weapons at once, and use special items, such as e.g. Loki's amulet, which affect your abilities. Another element in the apolalyptic winter, Fimbulwinter, which forces you to seek shelter, e.g. by looking for any heat sources.

Like every proper hack-and-slash game, Vikings: Wolves of Midgard for PlayStation 4 features a character devleopment system. The defeated enemies bleed, and you collect their blood in order to sacrifice it to the gods, which earns you upgrades and magical powers. Moreover, you can also rebuild your village step-by-step, and it can be repopulated. Some villagers can be very useful, for examplethe blacksmith, who upgrades your weapons.

Game mode

The game features a story campaign, which can be completed in a singleplayer mode or in an online co-op mode. After completing it, you can return to the Norse world and face greater challenges in the New Game+ mode. Vikings: Wolves of Midgard also features a Trials of the Gods mode, consisting of special challenges, where you can earn unique equipment and runes.

Technical aspects

Visually, Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is nothing new, although it does look decent; it features varied locations, and the attack animations are quite spectacular. In addition, the environment is partially destructible, which allows you to e.g. drop a heavy stone on your opponents' heads.
