PlayStation gamers that enjoy RPG games may be interested to know that the combat focused action RPG Vikings Wolves of Midgard will be making its way to the PlayStation 4 next month, on March 28th, 2017.
Check out the latest PlayStation 4 trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from this RPG which has previously been available via Steam for the PC.
Peter Nagy Head of Development at developers Gamesfarm explains more :
When the Jotan begin to unite the Fire and Frost Giants under their flag in preparation for their march on Asgard, they cross paths with an outcast clan of Vikings called the Ulfung, the Wolf Clan. You arrive from the winter hunts to find your village in ruins and under attack from the Jotun. The old chieftain lies dead in the aftermath of the conflict and only a handful of survivors remain, leaving you to rebuild your home while fighting against the forces of evil that would doom the nine realms to oblivion.
Dedicated explorers will also be able to find fragments of legendary armor and weapons tucked away in each of the levels to unlock the most powerful gear in the game. Alongside items and resources, the other key resource you’ll be harvesting is blood, used to level up and earn Gift points, which in turn unlock special powers called Gifts of the Gods.
Arguably the most important ability in every player’s arsenal is Rage mode, where you descend into a bloodthirsty rampage, enhancing many of your stats and abilities and granting several other bonuses. Just like your other abilities and weapons, Rage can also be upgraded for added effects, like ignoring enemy defenses, rendering you immune to environmental hazards, or increasing the rate of critical hits.
Enemies of all shapes and sizes are tough enough, but the boss encounters will force you to think tactically, with quick reflexes and perfect management of your abilities required to win. Even the environment is against you — freezing cold, poisonous fog, and scorching heat are just some of the hazards that can cause damage, slow your movements, and other detrimental effects. We call this the Exposure system, and to combat it you’ll need to find safe zones to balance out your vitals — such as campfires when exploring colder climes.
