About This Game

King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North is the next chapter in the cult RPG/adventure saga. The new tale takes place in the familiar world of Endoria featured in the previous games, but begins in the Viking lands, which the celebrated hero Bill Gilbert never visited during his famous quest in King’s Bounty: The Legend.

The Mighty Olaf, son of the Konung of Northlings, has dedicated his life to battling the undead who have infested the northern lands of Endoria. He seeks to liberate the snowy wastes, dwarven dungeons, and the very heart of Endoria, the kingdom of Darion itself, from the dark grip of necromancy. On his quest towards immortal glory he will encounter cunning foes and new friends, hard battles and amazing adventures.

Key Features

  • The unique race of furious Vikings, as well as new neutral creatures;
  • New main hero - Olaf the Viking;
  • Valkyries! Five magnificent warrior maidens accompany Olaf, which he can call up during battle by expending his Rage points;
  • Improved skill tree and new unique talents;
  • New awards that grant special benefits;
  • Additional battle spells and a completely new magic school - Runic Magic;
  • Modified battle system based on the use of Runes;
  • Chant - a unique ability of the Skald class which can turn a likely defeat into an overwhelming victory;

  • Full Steam services integration, including Steam Cloud, Achievements and Leaderboard.

Well, here's another game of the King's Bounty franchise. I've read some of the reviews before playing it and I had a few doubts if I'd actually enjoy it or not. Anyway, I decided to start the game and play as a warrior. I've seen that most of the complaints concerning the game were because there were glitches or random crashes. To tell you the truth, the only glitch I've came across during my gameplay was this magic rune that I simply couldn't pick it up because I couldn't reach the location. Really, I've tried A LOT and eventually I gave up. Then again, since I was playing as a warrior, I didn't spend much time using a diversity of spells and according to the reviews, most of the bugs were pointed to that area. Anyway, I've experienced a few random crashes, which made me extremely mad because I had to fight a few annoying battles again, so I've developed the habit of saving the game after every battle (autosave, anyone?). I've also missed the diversity of the troops from the previous games (although I confess that the vikings faction wasn't that bad). Last but not least, this game is unnecessarily long. I've finished it without fighting some battles and quests, simply because I wasn't in the mood to keep on grinding anymore. Overall: If you're a fan of the franchise, go for it. If you're not... Well, I believe that you're here just to find some funny reviews. :)

I would recommend it really only if you are a big King's Bounty fan and have all the other games. Otherwise, the bugs just take the fun out of it. If you are just a strategy/tactics/RPG fan then there are far better games that run more reliably.

+Variety of skills and spells for the hero
+Valkyrie abilities are a cool addition
+Battles can be fun, units have different abilities

-Random crashes without warning
-Sometimes battles will get 'stuck' on a turn forcing you to reload
-Variety of units seems more limited, both for you and enemies

I really love King's Bounty games from Katauri; they are quite good and very funny.

Sadly, I must say that "Warriors of the North" is heavily bugged, and this is unacceptable, considering that the game has been released in 2012. This means that in more then 1 year Katauri hasn't fixed all the bugs that afflict this (otherwise) very good game.

To help them, I want to report the main issues:
1) in Merlassar, when you enter the Pirate cave and win 1 fight, the "Victory music" goes crazy and goes on continuesly;
2) the Spell "Avenger Angel" doesn't work: a lot of times, it makes only 1 POINT damage!
3) everytime I cast "Justice" spell, the game crashes before performing it;
4) there are random crashes to desktop;
5) everytime you use the "Catapult Goblin", and in particular when you activate its ability with the static bomb, making it explodes, the game crashes to desktop.

So, I really ask to Katauri to correct the game.

Once they will do that, it will be a very good game.

I sometimes feel like the King's Bounty games were made with me in mind. I will be the first to admit that I am NOT "the brightest bulb on the tree." But even I can easily win these games (on easy.) And what fun is it to play a game that you can't win? (Okay. Some people, like "my brother the genius" play on impossible just to see what it is like. And seem to enjoy it. But for the rest of us...?)
I have read some reviews of WOTN that complain about the reuse of certain maps from TL. (King's Bounty - The Legend. Two games back.) That seems spurious to me. It takes place in the same world, just a few years later in time. And the very few maps that are the same have all been altered by time and the ravages of war.
The only complaints I have are: 1- Many of the troops look the same and have the same names that they did in previous games but their powers and abilities are changed. And 2- there are a LOT of side and main-line quests that require sailing or running back and forth between world-map areas. (Most with very minor rewards for completion.)
Still, it is an enjoyable game and one that I will replay at least a few times so it is well worth the price - now that most of the glitches have been ironed out. (When buying a game from 1C it is a good idea to wait a year after the initial release.)

Update: (Jan 24, 2014) During my second play-through, about 2/3 of the way through the game and one of the manditory fights keeps crashing on me. This MAY get fixed when the new expansion comes out... BUT... I now say -- Only purchase this if you feel lucky. 1c's support isn't especially good either.

Fire and Ice Expansion: F&I adds some new areas and some new enemies, but it is basically more of the same... except more frustrating.
The frustration comes in three forms. First, it crashes without warning more often. So..., it's a pain, but it's also a good idea to save after (or before) each battle. Or at least every other one so you don't have so many re-do fights.
The second source of frustration is that now you don't get your flying horse until much later in the game. Why is that frustrating? Not because you can't avoid unwanted battles, they are mostly all winable anyway. It is because of ALL those "traveling quests." The ones where you have to go back and forth from one side of an island to the other several times for very little reward. (A few bucks and even fewer experience points.) Before you could fly up and go straight... now you either have to wind back and forth through the maze of trails, OR as i did, put them off until after you get the horse. (You pretty much have to revisit most of the islands several times anyway.)
The third is the difficulity in finding enough of any one (well 5 actually) troop. This is even worse in F&I than WOTN, because they have added a leveling up system for troops which gives a BIG incentive to keeping the same ones throughout. But is a half full troop at it's maximum level better than a full compliment at lower?
Bottom line: F&I adds a few more hours of play time, and if you liked the game before you will probably like the expansion. (But I have become bored with all the meaningless back and forth between Islands quests. It feels like most were added just to make the game longer, not better.)

So... while I DO like and recommend this game F&I is my least favorite of the King's Bounty games.

If you care, they run from favorite to least favorite: 1- Armoured Princess 2- The Legend 3- Crossworlds (the expansion of AP suffers from the same problems as F&I) 4 - WOTN and 5- F&I

As of July 2014, the DLC areas have quest bugs which prevent you from continuing the main DLC questline. So you're paying for something where you get blocked from accessing half the content.

Game also has fairly frequent desktop crashes.

Buy if you enjoy throwing money into a fire.
