No, it’s not the sequel you were hoping for if you’re a fan of SEGA and The Creative Assembly’s Viking: Battle for Asgard, but it looks cool nonetheless.

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is a new action RPG from Kalypso Media, the publisher of the Tropico and Dungeons series. The game “will transport you to the Shores of Midgard, a world based upon the mythology and history of the Vikings. Battle the fearsome Jotan, hordes of terrifying undead monstrosities and other myriad beasts of Ragnarok.”

Here’s the official story synopsis from the press release:

Legend has it, that when the coldest winter descends, the Jotan will return to take their vengeance against the Gods of Asgard. The world is on the road to perdition and the fate of Midgard hangs in the balance. But when the Fire and Frost Giants begin to merge their armies, they encounter the clan of the Ulfung – the Wolves of Midgard. Bloody, but unbowed following the destruction of their village, this notorious band of ostracized Viking warriors are determined to seize their destiny and save the world. As clan chief, you must save Midgard from complete annihilation, and spearhead the charge to vanquish the fiendish creatures of the Fimbulwinter.

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is due out on the PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017. You can read up more about the game by checking out the full press release which includes a number of other details about the game in a bullet point section. If you’re heading to Gamescom the game will be playable there.

The first screenshots for the game were released by the official Kalypso Media Twitter account. Check them out below and let us know what you think of the game in the comments section. Stay tuned for further updates as we have them.
