Norse Mythology Inspired Sandbox RPG Valnir Rok Announced
A new online sandbox survival role-playing game inspired by Norse Mythology called Valnir Rok has been announced today.
Currently in development by Encurio, a development team based in Cologne, Germany, the game will take players to Valnir Island where they must do everything they can to survive in a harsh land.
Sebastian Rahmel, Game Director at Encurio GmbH, said:
It’s the dream of every passionate gamer to make games and we take our first big step in making the dream into reality with the announcement of Valnir Rok. We love Vikings and survival games so it was natural for us to pursue our vision of a Viking survival roleplaying game. Our development team is very passionate about the project and we’re all looking forward to debuting the game at gamescom 2017.
Valnir Rok is an online sandbox survival roleplaying game inspired by Norse mythology. Players will awaken to find themselves on Valnir Island and must do whatever it takes to survive in a land of wild animals, mythical beasts, and violent men. As a hardened Viking warrior, butcher your enemies in bloody combat, build and improve village structures, and form a clan to expand your power and reputation. Battle against opposing clans, place bounties on hated enemies, and discover ruin artifacts to gain favor with the gods with great deeds and holy sacrifices. Might makes right in the Viking world of Valnir Rok.
A new trailer has also been released, and you can check it out below.
A final release date for Valnir Rok has yet to be confirmed, but it won't take long for players to try out the game, as it will release on Steam Early Access next month. More information on the game will also come during this year's edition of Gamescom, due later this month in the studio's hometown.
