What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We already have all the essential game features, but there are many more we would like to add to improve the game even more, such as mounted combat, extended world map, and more stories. We would like to keep developing these features while players can already play it and provide us valuable feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“One year and a half.”

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

“The full version will have a complete campaign mode with numerous NPC characters, quests, an extended overworld map, more weapons, units, and naval vessels. The final version will also have improved skirmish, naval and siege combat.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current stage has all of the core features, including sailing, trading, army and fleet management, naval combat, ground combat, several NPC companions, and 30% of quests.”

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

“We will gradually increase the price as we ship in more content.”

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

“We are planning to use the Steam forum and our Discord as the primary channels for communication. We will have dedicated staff in managing our community and collect feedback.”

Features


Sailing and Exploration
Be prepared for a perilous journey on the sea. Optimize your supplies and ship loadouts to survive through storms, icebergs, and reefs. Keep your mind and weapons sharp to take on ravenous pirates at any time. Sail with a careful plan and a bit of luck, new lands full of fortune and adventure await.

Trading
Embrace the high risk, higher reward trading system. As you discover new settlements in different countries, learn each market’s unique supply and demand. Build the most efficient trading route, avoiding major hazards and food shortages on the sea to make sure you and your goods arrive in one piece. Take settlements under your reign and develop for sustainable fortune.
 
Fleet and Army Management
Design your fleet units wisely for each trip. Upgrade cargo vessels with larger storage space and faster sails. Fortify your battleships with powerful ballistic and armors to protect your cargo. Recruit fearless warriors to ravage anyone in your way.
 
Brutal Skirmish and Raiding
Engage in third-person, close-quarters visceral combat. Recruit warriors and hero companions to expand Vikings’ imposing presence. Stay cold-blooded for greed. Reap defenseless villages and monasteries, and bravely charge into fortified cities and resilient strongholds. Use your sword, axe, spear, and shield wall to pursue domination of power, wealth, and fame.
 
Action Based Naval Combat
Intense naval combat requires you to fight smartly. Experience a combination of artillery firing at the range and detailed boarding action. Fire repeatedly at a distance to weaken the enemy, then chase them down, ram them hard, grapple, and board to annihilate them all and loot rare trading stocks.

Get Social, Discover the Uncharted
As you grow your notoriety/fame, you will draw plenty of attention from kingdoms' rulers. Take on their exclusive missions for lucrative rewards. Interact with bartender girls during your off time. Be generous on your tip, and they may share some rumors that eventually lead you to unprecedented ancient treasures.

Customize Your Own Viking Chieftain
Classic RPG elements are infused into the game. Attribute unique skill points, loot legendary medieval weapons, and equipment along the way to becoming the most notorious Viking Chieftain of Europe.
