Another type of winter is coming.
Fimbul, the Norse Comic-Action-Adventure title from Publisher EuroVideo and Developer Zaxis Games, is coming to PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam on November 29th, 2018. With a Nintendo Switch release planned for early 2019. The Fimbulwinter – a season shrouded in legend, said to be the harbinger of the coming Ragnarok – has engulfed the high north. An old berserker named Kveldulver dies during an assault on his village, but destiny isn’t finished with him. Revived by the Norns, the sisters of fate, Kveldulver is chosen by the gods to fight the Jotun, a race of trolls, to prevent Ragnarok and the destruction of the world.
The comic-book style of Fimbul provides a gorgeous backdrop for players as they forge their own story. The “Lifestring” feature empowers Kveldulver, allowing him to return to earlier points in the story and walk different fated paths. During his adventure, he’ll meet many characters, some of whom are like-minded and willing to support him on his journey. Hidden areas, encounters and stories provide multiple incentives to see all possible outcomes. Additionally, Fimbul’s combat is simple to learn, but hard to master and to prevail against enemies such as vikings, wolfs, monsters and of course the giant Jotun, Kveldulver must collect special skills, items and a variety of weapons.
