Driven from Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources in the ninth century AD, you lead your clan of Norsemen across the icy North Sea to the rich lands of England’s broken kingdoms. There you carve out a new future for your clan, reliving the ruthless fighting style of Viking warriors.

As you and your clan of Vikings begin to settle into your new home, you encounter resistance from the Saxons, including King Aelfred of Wessex, who denounces you and your clan as heathens and looks to be the sole ruler of a civilized England.

The combat system has been revamped from previous games and now includes the ability to dual-wield weapons. To secure resources, you can lead raids to select locations using your longship to earn much-needed riches and supplies.
