What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The development plan and Early Access roadmap can be found in this Steam news hub entry. We believe that a game like Frozenheim can benefit greatly from maintaining open communication and receiving player feedback before its full launch.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have six months of updates scheduled following the Early Access launch, and leading to full launch in the beginning of 2022.”

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

“The initial Early Access launch focuses on freeplay and multiplayer. We're going to be gradually adding content and features so that Frozenheim will offer a full single-player campaign upon full launch.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Acces version of Frozenheim already includes:
  • Open-ended free-play mode where you set your own goals and enjoy building and expanding your settlement at your own pace, without any arbitrary ultimate goals or restrictions
  • A rudimentary single-player campaign, containing a few introductory scenarios with some pre-defined goals, progression paths, and challenges
  • Free-play mode that allows you to establish, manage, and grow your settlements, setting your own goals, exploring the land, surviving, and thriving as the seasons pass
  • Basic multi-player component based on the free-play mode scenarios, for you to play with your friends online (you can also set up a scenario where one or more players is AI- controlled)
  • A photo-mode to play around with, and to capture the charm of the Unreal Engine-powered world

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“The players' feedback is important to the development process of Frozenheim at every step. We'll be actively talking to the gamers here, in the Steam hub, as well as in a dedicated Discord channel.”

About This Game

It is the time of Viking sagas. A blood feud tears apart your fatherland. You are banished from the lands of your ancestors, doomed to seek out a new home for yourself and those still loyal to you. Your new clan looks up to you as winter draws close. Building a settlement is no easy task, but keeping your people safe from cold, famine, and those who seek to destroy you is even harder. Will you be the Earl that can rise to power and write their own saga of conquest and victory?

Frozenheim is a serene Norse city builder game that offers elaborate management mechanics and multiple progression trees to balance as you maintain and expand your settlement. Prepare for brutal RTS combat that will put your tactical skill into a test. As you launch exploration parties on foot and by boats you will not only discover resources you can exploit but also draw the attention of the enemies who will seek to destroy you. To prove yourself an Earl worthy of sagas, you will:

  • Build and expand a Viking village from nothing to a rich, unconquerable settlement
  • Forage, hunt, fish, grow your food, and keep your clan safe as the seasons pass
  • Find your own progression path as you learn to utilize new buildings and units
  • Explore the fjords of Midgard, launch raid parties on foot or set sail in your drakkars
  • Seek the blessings of ancient shrines and build temples to win the favor of Asgard
  • Raid other players or form alliances with them in multiplayer matches
  • Capture the raw beauty of the Frozen North in photo-mode

Survive. Conquer. Thrive. Make Odin proud!
