Set in worlds full of dark creatures, hidden gods, and abundant materials to be uncovered, players begin the game as a Viking living in a village that houses the Seed of Yggdrasil, which is the last bastion that protects the gods from the other realms. Fans will need to explore the wilderness to craft new weapons and be prepared to defend the sacred center of your village from the grim shadows from Helheim that prey upon its power. All the while, giants stalk ever closer to the village, seeking to destroy Midgard and fulfill the prophecy of the end of the world. Expand

    Tribes of Midgard has absolutely sunk its fangs into my leg, and I’m not even trying to shake it off at this point, if anything, I’m kind of happy to have a game I’m this taken with. The mix of genres is done masterfully, and the potential here is off the charts. That’s to say nothing of the fact that it’s hard-as-nails, is going to be getting loads of updates, and is also rather pretty to look at too. If any of this sounds good to you, I implore you to dive on in, you won’t regret it.

    Tribes of Midgard struggles with an outside force it has no control over that prevents it from being near perfect; it requires friends to play with. Alone, or with strangers who don’t work together there is just too much going on at once, making the game feel like an endless assault of chores that need done right away. But if you can get a regular group, taking down the seasonal boss is totally worth the effort.

    Tribes of Midgard isn’t going to be for everyone. The solo experience features all of the intensity that comes with the time crunch, but very little of the fun, and it’s certainly not for players who might be looking for another chill Valheim-like viking experience. But for what it sets out to do, it executes it well. Tribes of Midgard successfully evokes that feeling of setting out as a united tribe in its multiplayer sessions, and the heart of the game lies in sharing the burden of fighting that ticking clock and hoping that you can all pull together in time to beat the odds.

    Tribes of Midgard is a great concept, but half-baked mechanics and design decisions prevent it from reaching the triumphs it could.

    Tribes of Midgard has a lot of interesting ideas and systems, but it seems to fall short on implementing them all in a way that provides a better gameplay experience. The game, which is clearly designed to be played in a group, plays better with a custom lobby, where all the barriers imposed by the story mode are lifted, allowing the player to actually enjoy the game. The graphics and music are pleasant and never tiring. Sometimes less is more.

    Its world, art-style, exploration, and hack-n-slash combat are super fun, but these feel hampered by Tribes of Midgard’s key conceit as a tough tower defence game. Increasingly long nights mean you get little and less time to explore, and this is exacerbated by growing demands on resources. Instead, Tribes of Midgard would have made a better open-world game—its procedurally-generated Norse realm is so explorable. I would gladly play Tribes of Midgard more if I wasn’t bound to the settlement as much, and I hope that’s a mode that could be explored in the future.

    Tribes of Midgard has a lot of interesting concepts, from Norse Mythology inspirations to facets from other genres. Unfortunately, it's dragged down by poor pacing and rushing just to complete objectives. It's better if you have friends who also enjoy it. Unfortunately, as a solo player, you'll start wondering if there's anything else to look forward to.

Its something you can play for a bit before work or grind out some hours. My favorite aspect is the art style tho. The world they created is beautiful. Expand

As someone who isn't a huge fan of the survival/crafting genre, but this game made it fun. Runs can get a bit lengthy as you get deeper in the game, but it's a fun experience and I'm excited for the future of the game. There are small movement issues that pop up periodically, but overall it's a very well done game. Unlocking some of the characters can be a little bit frustrating due to the requirements, but that shouldn't put anyone off from an otherwise exciting game. Multiplayer works well, but when other players leave mid-run as soon as the bifrost unlocks, it makes getting to the Saga boss much more difficult. For the price, strong recommend as I've easily gotten my money's worth with this game. Expand

    Great game It draws similarities from Don’t Starve, Diablo and MOBA games combined while working better then a combination like that shouldGreat game It draws similarities from Don’t Starve, Diablo and MOBA games combined while working better then a combination like that should work the runs can take hours and with up to 9 friends it can even be a Nice game to work on team play. Even when you lose A run after being hours in you woman grind the next day again And some people might not even mention it but this game cost 20€ on release and got more then enough content for that price while there might be some stuff they could change it’s a good game you can come back to now and then you can even save quit and work on your run the next day Would recommend if you even just want to play solo or just with one friend it got even potentially to be a nine but time will tell.
