New City-Builder Land of the Vikings Announced by Iceberg Games

Publisher Iceberg Games and developer Laps Games have announced their latest city-builder game Land of the Vikings. Land of the Vikings is a city-building strategy game that is set in the Viking era, and it will release in Q4 2022 on PC in Early Access where the developer will continue development work alongside fan feedback. Land of the Vikings was present at last week’s Gamescom as well where players were able to try out the game in its early build form.

Check out the new announcement trailer for Land of the Vikings below:

In Land of the Vikings, you will take on the role of the Jarl of a new Viking village where you will manage resources, survive harsh conditions and enemy raids. No Viking village is complete without fights so you must make sure you give your villagers plenty of entertainment as well as your villagers must fight together and go through all sort of conflicts together. You will have the opportunity of expanding your villages into thriving cities and you will also have the aid of the Norse Gods who will reward you with different bonuses if you worship them.

Key features of Land of the Vikings include:

  • Manage your hoard – Chop trees, plant and grow crops, hunt wildlife, mine and fish from the surrounding seas and fjords. From victuals to Vikings, manage your resources carefully to ensure you can outlast the winter, and expand your settlement season to season. Each of your villagers is a character in their own right. With 20+ characteristics, your villagers might be powerfully built strongmen and women or silver-tongued thespians. Pay attention to skills and abilities when assigning your people to a task. Not all Vikings are alike, nor are they equally good at all jobs!
  • Know your Vikings – More Vikings will ask to join your settlement as it grows. You can choose to welcome them or turn them away. Over time, your Vikings will begin new families and give birth to new generations, extending their lineage and strengthening your village.
  • Survive fierce weather and events – This land will bring many challenges to your settlement, from earthquakes to fire-starting lightning from the heavens above. Band together and withstand these disasters as best you can. The seasons bring their own challenges, as do events and disasters. Be ready for storms and blizzards, or just the long deadly cold of the winter season. Prepare firewood and food stores to keep your Vikings warm and fed!
  • Trade and raid – Your neighbors are an excellent resource for goods and gold. Once you build a Trade Dock, ships will visit you with various cargo. You can also send out your own trade missions, as long as you have enough villagers to crew the vessel — and enough beer to fuel the crew! But any good Jarl knows that force is the best path to glory. Raid foreign villages to plunder their gold and silver, and gain Fame points. Train and strengthen your Vikings to ensure your victory.
  • Celebrate and decorate – No grids allowed! You can build wherever you want, design your village as you feel like, and increase your Vikings’ happiness. Construct monuments to Odin or Freya and customize the look of your Viking ships. You will even be able to modify the look of houses with the Building Editor, in one of the Early Access updates!
  • Yggdrasil, the tech tree of life – Unlock new buildings and bonuses by spending Fame points in the Tree of Life. Discover beer brewing and build a Tavern for your villagers to relax in. Invest in goat farming to gather wool and weave fabric for better clothes. As you create better quality living and resources, your Vikings will become healthier and happier, and your settlement will flourish!
