Expeditions: Vikings is a historical RPG for PC. The production is developed by Logic Artists - the creators of Expeditions: Conquistador.

Story

The game is set in the late 700s. With the advent of your father’s death, under the clan’s law, you are the new leader of a small Norse village. Your goal is to strengthen your position and make your land flow with milk and honey.

Gameplay

To achieve the mentioned objectives you will have to go to great lengths and be on alert for your neighbours – they want nothing but to wipe out you and your entire clan. To make things more difficult, even some your own clan members may plot against you in order to take over the village. Apart from the clan management, loot raids play a key role in the game. Before each attack you have to prepare by gathering resources and assembling a team. Farther escapades are much more worthwhile, but also much more dangerous, so you need to calculate the risks.

The game builds on the mechanics known from Expeditions: Conquistador – the camera features the top view and the turn-based combats take place on battlefields divided into hexagon tiles. Making use of cover system, traps setting, and flank attacks are essential in Expeditions: Vikings. The game utilises survival elements, such us searching for food or protecting the hero from the forces of nature. For the most part, gameplay is non-linear – your personal and strategic decisions affect the attitude other fractions and characters adapt towards you. Moreover, each member of your “hird” (which is, basically, a team) possesses a unique personality and morale that influence their effectiveness during battles. The game also introduces a system of diplomacy, trade, and randomly generated events.
