For Honor


Boreal Blade is a third-person action game aimed at multiplayer team battles, in which we play the role of Nordic warriors using many types of weapons. The Finnish studio Frozenbyte, known for the Trine series, is responsible for developing the game. The team worked on the title in secret and revealed its existence only on the day of its debut on Nintendo Switch, which preceded the launch on other hardware platforms.


Action in Boreal Blade is located in a fictional land of Norvalg, inspired by the Viking culture and Scandinavian legends. Players take part in traditional battles, which are part of the "debates" between many competing Norval clans. The winners not only bring honor to their families and tribes, but also decide on the key issues for the future of the entire land.


When starting a game, we create our own character using a comprehensive editor. Boreal Blade presents action from third-person perspective. The combat system enables us to control the movements of the character and the position of the weapon in their hands separately, which in turn affects the type of executed attack or block. Due to the implementation of this solution, there are hundreds of unique combinations of attacks. Battle participants can then choose the one that best suits their style of play.

Players can choose from four combat styles, each of which has its own strengths and weaknesses, influencing the tactics we use during battles. The title also offers a rich and diverse arsenal (including swords, clubs, spears), as well as shields, armour and other useful items.

Game modes

Boreal Blade has a total of four variants of multiplayer play. A maximum of eight players participate in the matches. The title enables the holders of different hardware platforms on which it was released to have fun together (cross-play).
