Blood Rage: Digital Edition
is now available for Windows and macOS
, offering a video game translation of the Blood Rage board game.
This strategy game involves leading your Viking clan on a quest to reach

The faithful digital adaptation of the legendary
Viking board game designed by Eric Lang, with art by Adrian Smith, is developed
by Exozet. The hit board game, originally released by CMON, is the 31st all-time
title according to BoardGameGeek, with an 8/10 rating. The core gameplay is
focused on combat and terrain control. In Blood Rage, your goal is to achieve
the greatest amount of glory before the end of the third and final age - and the
arrival of Ragnarök.
In Blood Rage: Digital Edition, each player controls one of the seven
ancient Viking clans: the Wolf, Bear, Serpent, Raven, Ram, Wild Boar, and Stag
clan. Each one comes with its unique warriors, leader, and ship. Draft the best
cards and use them to gain the advantage in battle. Raid lands, fulfill quests,
and upgrade your units to lead your clan to victory! The original miniatures
from the board game have been digitized into 3D-animated units using high-res
photogrammetry, leveraging more than 100 pictures for each of them.
You must choose your drafted cards carefully at the beginning of each Age.
Prepare your winning strategy for the game but make sure to adapt as your
opponents take actions or claim allegiance to specific gods. Each god is
generous with unique features: Frigga provides resources and support, Tyr
strengthens your clan in battle while Loki rewards losing battles or punishes
