The game is set in a fantasy land called Shingård, the land of Dragons, Orcs, Elves, Northmen, and more mystical creatures. They’re all at war with each other, but to fight and defeat the greater evil, the Ice Queen and her Cold Legion, they all must work together. The Ice Queen seems greatly inspired by Elsa (Frozen), because her plan is to cover the whole kingdom in eternal cold.
- King Björn – the awesome, is voiced by the famous “Family Guy” voice artist, Patrick Warburton.
- Visually stunning 3D battles.
- Customizable champion, equipped with armor and skills to help you win battles.
- Play as a team with like-minded warriors all around the world to defeat the Ice Queen.
- Choose between the three mystical creatures; Orcs, Elves or Northmen to fight against the Ice Queen.
The game starts with the introduction of King Björn – the Awesome and he gives a brief introduction about the game and the kingdom it’s set in. Then, you’ll get the option to select a male or a female champion as your main character. You can choose anyone from the three available mystical creatures; Orcs, Elves, or Northmen. The character which you’ll select will have armor and skills which can be customized further. Upgrading your champion also upgrades all the other characters playing under your command.
There’s a world map through which you can target areas for the battle. You can also send your troops to attack and conquer those areas for the kingdom, which would add more resources to your team, which can further help in defeating the Ice Queen. The battles can be seen in 3D style, which is an innovative feature.
Every player has a Stronghold at the center of the kingdom. It is served as a base for all the game operations, resources, activities, communication, and defense. Most of the game is about constructing and maintaining the Stronghold. There are multiple structures that can be made to unlock new features, game modes, units, and more.
You can sign treaties, which are known as Blood Pacts, with the neighboring lands for secrets and knowledge about different tribes. Building and upgrading the structures take a lot of time, and it increases as the player moves up to higher levels.
Nords – Heroes of the North is a great game. It’s intense, visually stunning and filled with unique fantasy elements. The only negative point is that it’s a pay-to-win game and you can only watch the 3D battles if you won’t pay, everything else is free-to-play. It’s a treat for the strategy gaming fans.
