Tribes of Midgard Next Month

Gearbox Publishing and developer Norsfell announce July 27th as the official launch date for Tribes of Midgard, the upcoming hack-and-slash game using the enduringly popular Viking setting. This trailer accompanies the news, warning the giants are coming (so you'd better hide the good china). Before you axe any questions about this, here are some details:
Tribes of Midgard is set in the colorful world of the ancient Norse. Since the dawn of the Nine Realms, the Seeds of the World Tree Yggdrasil have protected and nourished Midgard - what we know as Earth. These seeds are now scattered and hidden throughout the realm. Ancient evils and enemies of Asgard seek to extinguish these flickering remnants of life to bring about Ragnarök - the end of the world. Your mission? Protect the Seeds, Viking!

You’ll take control of an Einherjar, a glorious Viking hero in Valhalla, hand-picked by the Valkyries to protect the Seeds and save Midgard. Tribes of Midgard is designed from the ground-up with both solo and co-op play in mind, so bring as many as nine other Einherjar with you - the game automatically balances the challenge based on your party size. You’ll work together to bolster your defenses, venture into the unknown wilderness, defeat monsters and Giants, and more! Choose among eight different classes and numerous combat styles that suit your playstyle.
