The time has come, check out the new trailer and put those helmets on!

In Land of the Vikings, players take on the role of the Jarl (Chieftain) of a new Viking village. A wise Jarl must manage resources, survive harsh conditions and enemy raids, and guide their fellow Vikings to work together through social conflict. It is up to the players to expand their village into a thriving city – but they are not entirely on their own; the Norse gods will aid players with various rewards in return for their worship.
Manage your hoard
Chop trees, plant and grow crops, hunt wildlife, mine, and fish from the surrounding seas and fjords. From victuals to Vikings, manage your resources carefully to be sure that you can survive the harsh Winter, and expand your settlement season to season. Each of your villagers is a character in their own right. With 20+ characteristics, your villagers might be powerfully-built strongmen and women, or silver-tongued thespians. Pay attention to skills and abilities when assigning your people to a task. Not all Vikings are alike, nor are they equally good at all jobs!
Know your Vikings
More Vikings will ask to join your settlement as it grows. You can choose to welcome them or turn them away. Over time, your Vikings will begin new families and give birth to new generations, extending their lineage and strengthening your village.
Survive fierce weather and events
This land will bring many challenges to your settlement, from earthquakes to fire-starting lightning from the heavens above. Band together and withstand these disasters as best you can. The seasons bring their own challenges, as do events and disasters. Be ready for storms, blizzards, or just the long, deadly cold of the Winter. Prepare firewood and food stores to keep your Vikings warm and fed!
Trade and raid
Your neighbors are an excellent resource of goods and gold. Once you build a Trade Dock, ships will visit you with different cargo. You can also send out your own trade missions, as long as you have enough villagers to crew the vessel — and enough beer to fuel the crew! But any good Jarl knows that force is the best path to glory. Raid foreign villages to plunder their gold and silver, and gain Fame points. Train and strengthen your Vikings to ensure your victory.
Celebrate and decorate
No grids allowed! You can build wherever you want, design your village however you like, and increase your Vikings’ happiness. Construct monuments to Odin or Freya and customize the look of your Viking ships. You will even be able to modify the look of houses with the Building Editor, in one of the upcoming Early Access
Yggdrasil, the tech tree of life
Unlock new buildings and bonuses by spending Fame points at the Tree of Life. Discover beer brewing and build a Tavern for your villagers to relax in. Invest in goat farming to gather wool and weave fabric for better clothes. As you create better quality living standards and resources, your Vikings will become healthier and happier, and your settlement will flourish!
