The game is set in the late 700s. With the advent of your father’s death, under the clan’s law, you are the new leader of a small Norse village. Your goal is to strengthen your position and make your land flow with milk and honey.
To achieve the mentioned objectives you will have to go to great lengths and be on alert for your neighbours – they want nothing but to wipe out you and your entire clan. To make things more difficult, even some your own clan members may plot against you in order to take over the village. Apart from the clan management, loot raids play a key role in the game. Before each attack you have to prepare by gathering resources and assembling a team. Farther escapades are much more worthwhile, but also much more dangerous, so you need to calculate the risks.
The game builds on the mechanics known from Expeditions: Conquistador – the camera features the top view and the turn-based combats take place on battlefields divided into hexagon tiles. Making use of cover system, traps setting, and flank attacks are essential in Expeditions: Vikings. The game utilises survival elements, such us searching for food or protecting the hero from the forces of nature.
