A closer look on Signy, the Spear Maiden - Clan of the Snake Release Date: 19th of July!

Ohoï Warchiefs!

We thought we'd share a few details about the upcoming Clan of the Snake and more precisely on its exclusive Warchief: Signy, the Spear Maiden!

Coming with this patch as a DLC, the Clan of the Snake will add a new way of playing Northgard. Lead by Signy, the Spear Maiden, Svafnir’s followers are among the most roguish vikings on Northgard!

                                                Signy, the Clan of the Snake's Warchief

Unlike the other clans, the Clan of the Snake’s progression isn’t reflected by the Fame they’ve reached. Cunning and deceitful, the Snake has little regard for fame or honour. Members of the clan prefer working in the shadows and using guerilla tactics rather than open warfare.
As a consequence, the Clan of the Snake does not get any Fame from its actions in Northgard.

Its pride depends mainly on its warchief, Signy, who is already available at the beginning of each game. During the game, Signy will grow up and gain new abilities:
  • Age 15: The Cunning (start of the game).
  • Age 16: Pride of the Clan. Signy gains move speed and the ability to attack at range.
  • Age 18: Tears of the Earth. Signy gains the ability to walk freely among Northgard’s wildlife (like Skirmishers) and she can use her special ability: Scorched Earth.

Note that each year, Signy will grow stronger and stronger.

The lore tree of the clan will be centered on its abilities to harrass and pressure other players.

As a reminder, next update will bring into Northgard:
  • The Clan of the Snake
  • The Skirmisher, a special melee military unit, available for all clans
  • Balance changes to the Clans and the Victories

The Clan of the Snake is a purchasable as a DLC, the rest of the update, including the Skirmisher, is a free update available to all players!

As our main concern is to be sure the community isn't devided, players who do not own the Clan of Svafnir will be able to play with and against players who do!

The Clan will be purchasable for 4.49€.
Finally, we have a release date for you: July, the 19th!

We trully hope you'll have a lot of fun playing with this clan! As we already mentionned in previous announcements, we still have A LOT of things to add to the game in terms of new Clans, new game mechanics, foes, neutral factions, etc...

We'll be back soon with more news! ;)

The Skirmisher Preview

Along with the Clan of the Snake DLC, the next update will also bring major balance changes AND a new military unit: the Skirmisher!

Available for all clans, Skirmishers are a very special melee unit that can travel around Northgard unimpaired! In neutral tiles, they are invisible to wildlife and their movement isn’t limited by the presence of adversity...
You can choose to attack wildlife whenever you want by right clicking on a Wolf, Draugr, etc...

They can run faster than other units (+20% movespeed) but be careful: the Skirmishers’ armor is made of light leather and they are more vulnerable than the rest of your army!

You can recruit Skirmishers through their Skirmisher's Camp. This building is a basic military building, you do not need to have a Training Camp to build one. Skirmishers are the cheaper than other military units.

We hope you'll have fun playing with the Skirmishers! We designed this unit to allow players to innovate and create new military tactics!

We'll be back soon with more information about next patch!

“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.”

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, where he will make new friends and foes and discover a much greater threat than HAGEN, and the reasons behind his father’s assassination.

In order to complete the 11 chapters campaign, the player will have to master the specificities of all 6 clans and tame the unforgiving wilderness of Northgard.
