This is looking real good, havent played a Vikin type game in a while, since Rune vikin warlords, for the PS2 long ago..

Sega like Sony is investing in all the wrong games...who cares about vikings? God of War III will demolish this (no offense). But Sega needs to invest in bald space marine games.

This could be very good indeed. Hope it turns out well.

It looked awesome until the dragon showed up in the end.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but there wasn't any dragons in the viking age, was it? Well, obviously they're doing the Norse mythology instead of a viking game that shows what really happened :)

Looks much better than Beowulf or Conan ^^

I do care about vikings, and I'm shure many other gamers too!!!

Wow, this game looks very cool, and brutal ^^ Looks like some fun!
Hehehe, but at the scene where he appears, I just thought: TERMINATOR??!! ^^

Their previous action game Spartan was awesome, this'll no doubt be awesome too. It's great that they're focusing on a theme that has gone largely unexplored in games, because there are a lot of really cool things about norse mythology and beliefs.

Yeap, that is true. If they integrate things like Loki, Fenrir, the Goddesses of fate, Yggdrassil, Hrimthursum etc. this will be a hit at its best!!!!

Is this gonna be a RTS like command and conquerer, or are you controlling someone and slashing enemies to pieces?!
Commented on 2007-12-12 17:28:29
You are that blond muscle man, whose name I forgot, and slash through the ennemies, as you see some scenes in the vid.

Luuuuussshhhh. Looks good considering the number of enemies on screen.

Wiill pay close attention to this one.

About the game

    Sath The game reminds me of BC2 but WW1 setting which is a good thing IMO since i loved BC2. (24 minutes ago)

    Sath I love bf1, i think its a great fresh of air interms of setting. Since i always prefer historic/old settings, its good to play this compared to modern/sci fi. (27 minutes ago)

    aphex187 I'm glad they took a ballsy chance and made it WW1 now because it's paying off with the player count (36 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @GriftGFX: what did you expect, of course the weapons aren't going to be in the same league as other titles. What would you of rather happen, DICE follow the current trend of futuristic nonsense? (38 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX On the other hand.. you get an AT gun that you can counter snipe with (1 Hour ago)
