What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access was planned since the beginning for Northgard. We are big fans of strategy games and we know the level of perfection we need to attain with player experience, game flow and game systems. This can only be achieved with thorough testing and iteration. Simply put, we need experienced and passionate strategy players to make Northgard the best it can be!

Join us to make Northgard the strategy game of your dreams!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This will depend a lot on the feedback we receive. A rough estimate would be 4 to 12 months, 4 being the strict minimum we need to implement features we already have in mind and take your feedback into account.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There are 3 main areas we will work on during Early Access:
  • New playable clans with unique gameplay specificities
  • A full story driven campaign
  • A multiplayer (now available) mode
And a host of smaller features (improved trading and diplomacy options, more events, map specific victory conditions...)

As always, although we're very confident in the items on these lists, this is subject to change depending on Early Access feedback and testing.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is our Alpha version, meaning all the core gameplay is in a good state with some non-core systems awaiting implementation or optimization. Some parts of the core systems still require some tweaking, but the game is playable, enjoyable and relatively bug free.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Our plan for now is to have the Early Access version slightly cheaper than the full release. Both as a thank you to our testers and to reflect the amount of content that will be added during Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will be using the Steam Community forums to gather and discuss feedback. Will also have an in game feature that you can use to send bug reports easily directly to us.”

To completely finish the 11 chapters of the campaign, you will need to master all the clan's specificities and tame the wilderness of Northgard...

The campaign, and the full release of the game, will be available on March 7th, marking the end of Northgard Early Access period!



In the name and on behalf of all the Shiro Games team, I thank you so much for your support during last year. We hope you'll enjoy the campaign and the game ;-)

Finally, please let me assure you that we're not done working on Northgard! There are already so many clans, multiplayer features and gameplay innovation we want to implement!

Once again, thank you so much for believing in this project :)

Reviews

“If Odin played Early Access strategy games, I imagine he’d be pleased.”
PC Gamer

“It’s an impressively well-made thing, a finely-embroidered cloak of an RTS with all the elements sewn together in a pleasing and sensible way.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Northgard is already worthwhile, and it could easily become a must-play for strategy fans if Shiro Games continues to add to and improve the already solid foundation that they’ve laid so far.”
Tech Raptor

About This Game



After years of tireless explorations, brave Vikings have discovered a new land filled with mystery, danger and riches: Northgard.

The boldest Northmen have set sail to explore and conquer these new shores, bring fame to their Clan and write history through conquest, trading, or devotion to the Gods.
That is, if they can survive the dire wolves and undead warriors roaming the land, befriend or defeat the giants, and survive the harshest winters ever witnessed in the North.



  • Build your settlement on the newly discovered continent of Northgard
  • Assign your vikings to various jobs (Farmer, Warrior, Sailor, Loremaster...)
  • Manage your resources carefully and survive harsh winters and vicious foes
  • Expand and discover new territory with unique strategic opportunities
  • Achieve different victory conditions (Conquest, Fame, Lore, Trading...)
  • Play against your friends or against an AI with different difficulty levels and personalities
