Fancy taking on the Norse gods? Roguelite ARPG Viking Vengeance has a Steam release date. Lowpoly Interactive's game is on its way to Valve's distribution platform on April 8th, which gives you a week to sharpen your double-edged battleaxe.

What do we know about Viking Vengeance?

Lowpoly describes Viking Vengeance as a "God-worshipping roguelite dungeon crawler ARPG" in which you must curry favor with some gods and inevitably earn the displeasure of others. You are a Templar who must learn to wield the powers of the Norse pantheon in order to prevent Ragnarok. As you might expect, you're going to have to cleave your way through plenty of vicious hordes in order to do so. You can take a look at the Viking Vengeance release trailer right here:

 

In a similar fashion to Supergiant's Hades, you must choose which of the Norse gods' blessings to receive. The Norse gods are fickle, but you can use equipment or runes to increase your chances of receiving a boon from them, giving you the chance to wield Thor's hammer or utilize Loki's misdirection to help you. You'll have access to two different classes, each with distinct gear and weapons to use, and as you explore each dungeon, you'll find chances to uncover the history of the world and find new skills and upgrades. If you loved Hades but thought it didn't quite have enough spears in the sides of sacrifices to Odin, this is your chance to rectify that.

You'll get the chance to pay righteous tribute to Odin in Viking Vengeance when it launches on Steam on April 8th. Naturally, you can wishlist the game right now ahead of its launch if you wish. Lowpoly says it's committed to making more content and updates for Viking Vengeance, too, including new playable characters, new Acts, new items, and plenty more. It's going to be a long Fimbulvetr indeed.
