Dead In Vinland's Future - Roadmap

Hello survivors!

So, Dead In Vinland has been out for almost 3 months now (whaaaaatt?? already?! We could have sworn it was just yesterday…), and the response from the players has really been great. So, first of all: thank you all!!

Since release, we didn't take a break: we released many patches, hotfixes, and the BIG 1.1 patch that we released last month, which addressed the most important feedbacks from the community.

We're rather pleased with the state of the game right now, however, we don’t want to stop there. When we released Dead In Bermuda (in 2015), we wished we could have made more post-release content, but due to design and technical constraints it was not possible.

So, when we started development of Dead In Vinland, we had this in mind, and didn't made the same mistake. We CAN make new content for the game, and - that's what this post is actually about - we WILL!

We checked the forums, we checked the ideas coming from the Feature Wishlist thread, and some of our own... and we can now officially announce that we will be working on at least 3 DLCs for Dead In Vinland! And free updates, of course.

We made a little roadmap, let's check it out:


1. New Companion
This summer, we’re going to add a new companion in Dead In Vinland. We think you’re going to like having this one in your camp. 😉
Release: Summer 2018

2. New Game Mode
We’re adding a brand new mode for Dead In Vinland that will give you a totally new way to play the game. It’s a mode that was actually asked by the players. Can you guess what it’s going to be?
Release: Fall 2018

3. New content
We can’t reveal much, but we will add some new content in Dead In Vinland! We can only say that this one will have to do with the dialogues. We’ll share the details in 2019.
Release: Q1 2019

Each DLC will be accompagnied with a major 1.X patch, with new features from the DLC that will be available for free to everyone, as well as smaller improvements on the game. We'll show some sneak peek on our Twitter starting next week!

Shhhh... ;)

We hope you guys will like what we’ll be adding to the game! We want to keep working on it as long as we can. We already have a lot of ideas for after the 3rd DLC, but it will only be possible if the sales go well, so spread the word and show us some love <3
Oh, and for those asking: yes, we’re starting to think about our next game, but it’s way too early to be talking about it...

  • The animations of new stations built are now properly sped up when in Fast Foward.
  • Removed some Traits which didn't make sense with the characterization from each characters' random starting pool

“[...]Dead in Vinland is compulsive, and a great example of systemic roguelike storytelling.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Super complete and addictive, you won't see the time fly: "one more turn" is a recurring phrase.”
8.5 – Actu Gaming

“Everything interlocks with its complicated little gearwheels, battles break up the constant events of the day beautifully and even the figures make me with the time much more curious.”
79 – GameStar

About This Game

DEAD IN VINLAND is a survival/management game, mixed with RPG and adventure elements, about a Viking family trying their best to survive on a mysterious island.

Exiled on a faraway and unknown land, lead Eirik and his family on their quest to survive.
Manage their physical and mental health, explore the island, organize your camp and deal with other human beings. Some will help you, and some will be less... friendly.
Unveil the esoteric mysteries of Vinland. They could save your life… or lead you to your demise.


  • Deep survival management simulation : find and gather resources, secure a supply of food, take care of the mental and physical health of your characters, fight diseases and wounds, ration your water supplies, endure the elements (storm, drought, rain…).

  • Challenging: the game is turn-based so you have time to take the best decisions, but the challenge is high! You’ll have to adapt to the crisis the game throws at you, with your own reasoning.
  • 3 modes of difficulty: if you just want to enjoy the story, we added an easy mode and, for the crazy lunatics, we added both an extreme difficulty and iron man mode, that even the developers of the game can’t beat!

  • Build your camp: expand your shelter with 18 activity stations, each one with its own mechanics. Craft more than 130 upgrades and dozens of items to give you precious bonuses. Choose well, you won’t be able to craft everything.

  • Manage a community: 14 playable characters, each one with their own strengths, flaws and stories. Influence how their relationships evolve with meaningful dialog choices, achieve one of the 7 possible romances or kick annoying characters from your camp and recruit new ones. And some surprises!

  • Explore the island: 150 areas to discover with hundreds of objects to interact with. Unveil the many secrets of the island and its beautiful, hand-painted landscapes.

  • Don’t just survive, settle: you can hunt, harvest, fish… but you can also grow a garden and breed sheep! Advanced camp stations with special mechanics.
  • Live your own adventure: complete 70 non-linear quests to reach the end of the game. Depending on your choices, learn about what happened to your characters after the end.

  • Animosity and tribute system : be “welcomed” by the infamous tyrant Björn Headcleaver and his merry band of robbers. Bend the knee and pay him weekly tributes, or rebel… and face the consequences.
  • Full RPG system: 5 health states to care for, 20 skills to develop, more than 600 character traits, 100 items to collect, 30 diseases and 20 wounds to die from… Customize your characters: choose from 5 randomly generated special traits every time they level up.

  • Turn-based tactical combat: quick and deadly 3 vs 3 battles against Björn’s minions. 5 unique playable character classes, each with its own set of fighting skills, and 5 passive classes.
  • HUGE content: more than 150 000 words - twice the size of the first Harry Potter book - telling a mature yet humorous story.


    DEAD IN VINLAND is the second installment in the “Dead In…” universe, after DEAD IN BERMUDA. The two games are standalones, but you’ll learn a bit more about the secrets behind these strange islands and the general background in each game of the series.
