You will also assign jobs to villagers, build castles, and build workshops, mines, and farms. Exploring the world will also find you discovering hidden loot and resources and fighting mythical enemies.

Here is a list of features:

  • Up to four players can play together and command the villagers, building their tribe from scratch, scavenging for resources, and surviving the ancient threat that winter will bring.
  • Assign each villager various jobs as they contribute to the tribe and leave their mark on the settlement. Training your villagers will increase their abilities, whether in battle or their chosen vocation.
  • Build workshops, mines, farms, castles, and defenses as you expand your village. What begins as a collection of modest cottages ends up becoming a prosperous town where crops are grown, towers erected, and anvils hammered.
  • Customize the buildings with functional furniture and various decorative elements.
  • Discover hidden caves and other amazing areas in the world, all filled with loot and valuable resources.
  • Set sail on your own customizable Viking ship, discover new lands and build outposts around the world. Establish supply lines between settlements and create a self-sufficient Viking empire.
  • Explore a fantastical, fully procedurally generated world filled with secrets, landmarks, and threats, keeping each session dynamic and fresh.
  • Experience a realistic and dynamic weather system around the world, with survival priorities changing with the seasons.
  • Fight against a variety of mythical enemies in exciting skill-based combat.
  • A wise tribal leader prepares for war in peacetime. In this mystical land, an ancient evil has been dwelling in the shadows, waiting for the first frost to fall. During the harshest season of all, as your tribe battles the elements, the dark denizens of this world prepare to strike.
