If you are looking for your isometric action-RPG fix after running Diablo 3 for the 100th time, Vikings: Wolves of Midgard might be the upcoming game for you. Thrust into the middle of Midgard while Ragnarok, the end of all things, rages around players must fight to survive against giants, the undead, and the very gods themselves.
Players take on the role of a warrior or shieldmaiden chief of the Ulfung clan, the Wolves of Midgard, facing the oncoming storm of Ragnarok. The Jotan have returned to the world for the final battle with the gods of Asgard and in their wake the dead rise. The Fire and Frost giants have forged an alliance and merged their armies. With a the only home the Ulfung have ever called home destroyed, players will lead their people to safety and put an end to Ragnarok to save Midgard.
Wolves of Midgard seems to take a lot of cues from Diablo. Players can take up sword and shield, two-handed hammers, dual axes, and bows in defense of their clan. As progress is made, players can also learn and unleash devastating spells granted by the very gods.
Vikings: Wolves of Midgard releases in early 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
