Embark on an epic norse adventure and prevent Ragnarök.
Danish indie studio Zaxis Games, together with publishers at Wild River, announced today that their nordic action-adventure title Fimbul will be released on February 28th. This game was originally scheduled to hit Steam and consoles back in November 2018. Fimbul will be available digitally for PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch and will have physical versions for every platform except Microsoft’s.
The game is set during Fimbulwinter, the prelude to the legendary end of the world known as Ragnarök. In this context, players take the role of Kveldulver, an elder berserker that is tragically killed while his village was raided by bandits. The Norn godesses decide to revive him and task him with defeating the giants of Jotun and preventing the end of the world.
Action-packed combat and an epic tale of adventure await in this story that will be affected by each decision we take, branching towards different outcomes and endings. Its comic-book style of storytelling and aesthetics will also be a great appeal, as well as its roots on norse culture.
Fimbul features a pretty interesting mechanic that allows players to explore different outcomes without having to complete the game and restart it for a second playthrough. Kveldulver has been granted by the Norn with the power of going back in time to imprtant moments of his journey in order to see what would happen if he’d chosen a different path.
This story-rich experience, filled with both friendly and not so friendly characters, will be available on February 28th for PC and every major console, including a physical version for PC, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. You can check more about Zaxis Games in their official website.
