Hmm wonder if this will turn out any good? Hope so.

Quote:

The Goddess Hel, the story goes, has been banished for defying Odin, Lord of Asgard. Angry at her fate, Hel has raised an army of undead warriors to enslave the mortal realm of Midgard, and then provoke Ragnarok - the apocalyptic battle that that will destroy the Gods and everything in around them (even Dagenham).

Expectedly it's down to you then, a young warrior who's gained favour with the gods, to stop the mental Goddess, leaving a bloody trail of dismembered foes in your path.

An "involving and addictive combat style," with "destructive mythical powers and abilities," and a "array of devastating and brutal combat moves" is promised, which you'll be using in "epic battles" featuring colossal giants, powerful shaman, deadly assassins and Hel's own champions. It's a "visceral wave of slaughter," says Sega. Just like God of War then.

"Skarin is a cutting edge hero in a fantastic re-imagining of Norse Mythology. Skarin is obviously a very dangerous man." said Gary Knight, SEGA Europe's Marketing Director. "Add in his inner conflict, a confused heritage and a growing distrust of the Gods and you have the makings of gaming's next great hero."

We're due to take our first look at Creative Assembly's Viking bruiser at Leipzig tomorrow - so look for much, much more including the first bloody screenshots shortly.

graphics arent exactly phenomenal but given the amount of people on screen, it's understandable. I have to see a video of the combat to make up my mind!

Some of the ground textures are a little iffy, but I think the character models are pretty darn good.

Besides, there's always room for vikings! I mean, Pirates vs. Ninjas? Fuck that....VIKINGS vs. Ninjas makes a lot more sense. How can anyone think the phrase "shiver me timbers" is cool?

Well these kind of games are the games we have to see in gameplay, meaning combat.

Remember Ninety-Nine Nights? Too Human?

Well you guys might know what I am talking about, were screenshots, concepts are good in these type of games but they usually play bad.

I'd much rather it play if it plays how that new Conan game looks like it plays than how Ninety-Nine Nights does.

If you're fighting huge groups of enemies, then I'll definitely pass.

New Preview:

GC: Viking: Battle for Asgard

Imagine if you took God of War's Kratos, stuck him into a massive, free-roaming world, sprinkled some Kameo-style epic battles and made him a bit hairier for good measure. That's basically what The Creative Assembly's epic new action game, Viking: Battle for Asgard is like.
