Expeditions: Viking, the historical Norse RPG from Danish studio Logic Artists and successor to 2013's well-received Expeditions: Conquistador, has been released and is available on Steam now, with a GOG release to come tomorrow. The game hasn't gotten a great deal of hype and most Codexers seem to have avoided the beta, so I have no idea how it will be received. A rare thing in this age of open development and preconceptions. All I know is that the trailer looks great:

Get ready for an adventure in history! Logic Artists, the makers of Expeditions: Conquistador, are pleased to bring you Expeditions: Viking.

Prepare for a grand adventure

As the newly appointed chieftain of a modest Viking clan, you’ll have a village of your very own. But to carve your name into the runestones of history you’ll need great strength, and great wealth to grow your village’s prosperity and renown. There is little left to be gained from the Norse lands and so you must set your sights on the the seas to the West, where tales speak of a great island filled with treasure ready for the taking.

Seek your fortune

Your trusted huscarls will follow you to Valhalla if that be the order of the day, but you’ll need more than loyalty to leave a legacy that will be remembered for a thousand years. Now assemble a worthy band of warriors, build a ship, and seek your wealth and glory across the sea. Britannia awaits in Logic Artists’ Expeditions: Viking.

Main features:
  • Create your very own Viking chieftain! Carve out your character from our unique character system, where stats, skills, and abilities define your character’s role.
  • Raiding or Trading? Vikings were known not only as violent warriors, but savvy tradesfolk. How will you find wealth, with the carrot or the stick?
  • War and Politics: Side with various factions be they Norsemen, Picts, or Angles.
  • Reputation: Be mindful of your choices, the stories of your actions may bring others to fear you, but will they trust you?
  • Step into the pages of history: In a beautiful and visceral telling of the Nordic history.

As stated in last week's press release, Expeditions: Viking's price is $30, with a 10% launch discount until next week. The Blood-Ice DLC mentioned in the press release is an item DLC that appears to be free for everybody, so that's nice. The game has gotten a few reviews, at HookedGamers, GameSpew, God Is A Geek and COGconnected, but seems to be receiving little attention from the larger sites. Let's hope it does alright.
