“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

“Every game is fat with potential, helped in great part by a map generator that spits out a brilliant array of as-good-as-bespoke battlefields.”
84/100 – PC Gamer

“Northgard's laid-back approach to RTS is highly entertaining, and it makes the game one of the most engaging experiences we've had with the genre.”

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
  • Enjoy dedicated servers and grind the ranks to reach the final Norse God rank!


The Viking High King is murdered and his Regal Horn is stolen by a man named Hagen. This event kickstarts a saga that will take Rig, his son and heir accompanied by his right-hand man Brand through the new continent of Northgard. The continent where he will make new friends and foes and discover a much greater threat than Hagen, and the reasons behind his father’s assassination.


Northgard: Cross of Vidar is a Northgard's expansion pack bringing a new campaign to the game that takes place in an entirely new civilization: The Southern Kingdoms. This expansion also introduces a new faction unlike any seen before in Northgard, The Kingdom of Neustria.

After uniting all of the clans behind him, Rig will have to prepare them against Ragnarök but the clan’s faith in the King seems to diminish as time passes. It might be time for them to find a new home, but this won’t be an easy task…

Survive and conquer the unforgiving wilderness of Northgard by mastering the unique attributes of the many different clans that inhabit the continent!

Each clan has its own unique characteristics, bonuses and features. Since our vikings first stepped foot upon Northgards shores, several new clans have joined the battle, each introducing new ways of playing and methods to achieve victory.

After each additional clan release, Northgard is upgraded by free major content which add new ways to play, and allow you to discover all the possibilities that Northgard offers you!
