Now this is a nice surprise. Viking: Battle for Asgard was originally released to consoles 4 years ago, and I still remember reading about it (in GAMES) when I was in the army. Four years later and here we are today with Hardlight Studio, announcing that this title will be coming to our beloved platform next week.
Viking: Battle for Asgard PC was hinted to us last month by our reader CoolingGibbon. CoolingGibbon had spotted a PEGI rating for the PC version of Viking: Battle for Asgard, suggesting that the game was coming out last month. Since the game was not released, we thought that it was a wrong report from the PEGI group. Well, it appears we were wrong, so appologies to everyone for not mentioning it earlier, as CoolingGibbon was right after all.
Viking: Battle for Asgard PC will be available on Steam and GamersGate. No news yet about any specific PC features such as higher resolution textures or the addition of any advanced graphical settings.
Viking: Battle for Asgard features:
•The story of a Viking Hero. Skarin is an uncompromising force. A plaything of the gods rebelling against their selfish agenda. The definitive Viking warrior.
•Rich Viking Lore. The violent and glorious world of Viking mythology brought to stunning life. Players will write their own legends to be told around the campfire.
