In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Viking: Battle For Asgard

Immerse yourself in Norse mythology as Skarin, a fearsome Viking warrior fated to defend mankind and discover the secrets of his past...

LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (August 21st 2007) - SEGA® Europe Ltd and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced Viking: Battle For Asgard™, the latest console title from the award winning and critically acclaimed development studio, The Creative Assembly. As Skarin, a new iconic gaming hero, experience the violent yet spectacular world of the Vikings and their Gods on the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the Sony PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system, early in 2008.

A fierce struggle is taking place within the realm of the Norse Gods. The Goddess Hel has been banished for defying Odin, Lord of Asgard. Angry at her fate, Hel has raised an army of undead warriors to enslave the mortal realm of Midgard, and then provoke Ragnarok - the apocalyptic battle that that will destroy Asgard and the Gods themselves. The task of stopping Hel and defending the future of mankind falls to Skarin, a promising but deeply flawed young warrior, ignorant of the true reason for his favour with the Gods…

Leave a bloody trail of dismembered foes as you master an involving and addictive combat style with destructive mythical powers and abilities. Explore vast and visually stunning open-world environments whilst slaying your enemies with a huge array of devastating and brutal combat moves. Tame mighty dragons and unleash their rain of fire, laying waste to the enemy hordes that stand in your way. Free enslaved warriors to wage war on Hel’s legion and lead them into huge, epic battles featuring colossal giants, powerful shaman, deadly assassins and Hel’s own champions. Here players can use Skarin’s emerging skills to help turn the tide of conflict with a timely murder or through the brutality of a visceral wave of slaughter.

“Skarin is a cutting edge hero in a fantastic re-imagining of Norse Mythology. Skarin is obviously a very dangerous man.” said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director SEGA Europe. “Add in his inner conflict, a confused heritage and a growing distrust of the Gods and you have the makings of gaming’s next great hero.”

Viking: Battle For Asgard™ is due for release on Xbox 360™ and PlayStation® 3 early in 2008.
