Tribes of Midgard is a co-op game with a unique blend of action, survival, and roguelite elements. Venture with your tribe into the untamed wilds of Midgard to gather precious resources, hunt mythical beasts, defeat mighty foes, topple giants, and claim treasures. The further from the village you explore, the greater the challenge and greater the rewards—which you’ll need to stand against the ever-strengthening minions of the apocalypse. But you must return before the sun sets so you can bolster your defenses, craft powerful equipment, and fend off the nightly assaults. Players must defend their village from hordes of invaders—deadly spirits and gigantic brutes—that every night threaten to destroy the Seed of Yggdrasil, the sacred tree you’re sworn to protect. Only by protecting the Seed, you and your tribe can stop Ragnarök—the end of the world!
Protect the Seed of Yggdrasil from a nightly invasion of Helthings and work together with your tribe to withstand the ever-looming threat of the Jötnar—epic giants hellbent on smashing both the Seed and your surrounding village to bits. The world (and the game) ends when the Seed is destroyed. Each gameplay session begins with your tribe being dropped into a fresh, procedurally generated world, equipped with nothing but the loincloth on their backsides and an eternal oath to save the world. Gain knowledge, meta experience, and account unlocks each session to aid you in your quest to hold off Ragnarök for as long as you can. Level up your character each session by choosing a class and taking the battle into the wilds as you seek resources to craft epic armor and mighty weaponry. Then, unleash destruction and prepare clever village defenses to give your enemies some nasty surprises.The longer you and your tribe survive, the greater the rewards!
Tribes of Midgard is a roguelite game where you go on hourlong “runs” through a procedurally generated world that’s pretty extensively geared around large-group play. As a solo experience, it’s not the best. It feels lonely, and you always feel like you’re juggling too many things at once to keep them fully balanced. The game says it “scales with player count” but only in terms of boss HP and resources you collect per-node. The map size is static and always massive in scale, with everything you want to gather sprinkled throughout and no definite direction or guarantee you’ll find everything you need where you’re going. You will have a very difficult time scoping out the land and finding points of interest — or even your objectives within the fierce time limit Saga Mode puts you in by yourself or even with one or two friends.
Free, limited time seasonal events will bring bigger challenges and even mightier treasures to the endgame of Midgard throughout the year, including new ways to play and new rewards to earn through the season’s unlockable progression track. When the giants arrive, it takes a village to bring them down! Adventure through Midgard solo or form a tribe of up to 10 players in online PvE co-op. Gather resources, slay legendary beasts, delve through caves, claim treasure, and build anywhere as you explore formidable, procedurally generated lands on your quest to take on RagnarökTest your Viking skills against the seasonal challenges of Saga Mode or tailor the experience to your liking and see how long you can “surthrive” in the highly customizable Survival mode. We recommend taking on Ragnarök with a tribe of four or more.
