Legend has it that when the coldest winter descends, the Jotan – giants of the Outyards – will take their vengeance against the gods of Asgard, thus heralding the start of Ragnarok – the war to end all things. But when the Jotan began to unite the Fire and Frost Giants under their flag, they crossed paths with an outcast clan of Vikings called Ulfung – the Wolf Clan. This marks the point in time when the fate of the Gods, and all the Midgard, fell into the hands of one mere mortal.
Enter the Shores of Midgard, a world based upon the mythology and history of the Vikings, but with a fantasy twist. Battle fearsome giants, terrifying barrow wights, and the dark creatures that lurk in the shadows, as you strive to survive the growing cold that threatens to end all life, forever. Master mighty weapons including the sword and shield, two-handed hammers, dual-wielded axes and swift bows to unlock fearsome Battle Powers.
Earn blood in battle to offer in tribute to the Gods in order to acquire and enhance devastating Spell Powers as well as unlocking intriguing Gifts. The world is ending… and it’s your destiny to prevent the imminent destructions that Ragnarok brings to the worlds of Gods and men.
