About Tribes of Midgard:
Tribes of Midgard is a new game in which players must resist the oncoming invasion of Giants during Ragnarök.
Set in worlds full of dark creatures, hidden gods and abundant materials to be uncovered, you play as a Viking living in a village that houses the Seed of Yggdrasil; the last bastion that protects the Gods from the other Realms.
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.
Tribes of Midgard is now available on the PS4, PS5, and PC.
