Clan of the Kraken slithers its way into Northgard with new DLC

Heading to Switch...eventually

The Clan of the Kraken knows how fickle and dangerous the sea can be, worshipping the gigantic behemoth from the deep, fearing brutal might, but also honoring its instinctual knowledge and the great powers the mythical sea creature can bestow on the Vikings brave enough to follow it.

Players choosing the Clan of the Kraken will suffer a penalty in colonisation and constructing buildings away from coastal zones. Likewise, all the clan’s unit attack values suffer a reduction away from the sea. No Longship Docks can be built, and a Trade Victory is not open to the Clan of the Kraken. The new Fishery replaces the Fisherman Hut, and can be used by the Vikings on both lakes and the sea. The Brewery is replaced by the Horgr building, allowing players to train female clan members into Norns. The Norn produces Happiness and Wyrd. Wyrd can be used to activate special abilities.

The release of the new Clan of the Kraken by developer Shiro Games comes on the heels of the studio’s presence at gamescom 2019. The French indie will showcase the upcoming massive expansion Northgard: Conquest - coming in October 2019 - as well as Northgard on console and Northgard: Uncharted Lands, the new board game set in the Northgard universe.

Northgard is not yet available on Switch, but is still slated to hit sometime in 2019. When it does come over, the Clan of the Kraken DLC should make its way to the platform as well.

Shiro Games expands Northgard universe with new Northgard: Conquest mode, console release date and board game

For the North!

Bordeaux, France - July 18, 2019 - French indie studio Shiro Games has revealed today a series of major news for their best-selling Viking strategy game Northgard. The announcements come ahead of the team’s presence at gamescom 2019, where they will show all the Northgard projects behind closed doors.

Northgard: Conquest is the next major free expansion for the original Steam version (Windows/Mac/Linux) of the popular strategy game and will feature a new procedurally generated campaign mode. Northgard: Conquest allows players to cooperatively chart their way to victory with each player receiving tailor-made missions and objectives, ensuring that each playthrough will be radically different. The new mode is scheduled to be released in October 2019.

Shiro Games is also bringing Northgard to the console, announcing today that the popular strategy game will make its debut on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on the 26th of September 2019. A physical retail version of the game will also be made available at the same time. Northgard on console will feature all the content found in the Steam base version including the major Ragnarok and Relics updates, as well as reworked user interface and controls.

Northgard: Uncharted Lands is a brand-new board game set in the Northgard universe. It transforms all the Viking clan action, resource gathering, village building, and strategic scheming from the digital original into a visually striking physical game steeped in Norse mythology. Aimed at strategy fans of all ages and experience levels, Northgard: Uncharted Lands is designed to be played by two to five players. As with the popular PC version, players take control of their own Viking clan and explore and conquer new territories, brave the harshest of winters, fight (or befriend) mythical beings and creatures, and defeat any foe on the road to ultimate victory.

Shiro Games will be present at gamescom 2019 to present all three of the above Northgard projects, as well as their upcoming cooperative action survival game Darksburg, to selected media.

Northgard was released originally on Steam Early Access on February 22nd, 2017, where it quickly rose to become one of the most popular strategy games on the platform, selling over 1 million copies. The game officially launched out of Early Access on March 7th, 2018, and was one of the highest-rated PC strategy titles to be released in the year, with a Metascore of 80.
