'Frozenheim' Gets Final Early Access Update, Release Date - Trailer

by Rainier on May 26, 2022 @ 6:00 a.m. PDT

Frozenheim is a serene norse-themed city builder with elaborate management gameplay and RTS tactical combat.

In Frozenheim the players find themselves in the time of Viking sagas. A blood feud tears apart their fatherland. They are banished from the lands of their ancestors, doomed to seek out a new home for themselves and those still loyal to them. Their new clan looks up to them as winter draws close. Building a settlement is no easy task, but keeping your people safe from cold, famine, and those who seek to destroy you is even harder.

Will they rise to power and write their own saga of conquest and victory?

Frozenheim is a beautiful and serene norse city builder game that offers elaborate management mechanics and multiple progression trees to balance as the player maintains and expands their settlement. It tasks the player to build and expand a Viking village from nothing to a rich, unconquerable settlement. Their clan will forage, hunt, fish, grow their food as the seasons pass. The game offers multiple progression paths allowing to utilize new buildings and units. Launching raids and exploration parties on foot or in drakkars allows to expand the clan’s influence, but may draw unwanted attention from the enemies. The player may also choose to seek the blessings of ancient shrines and build temples to win the favor of Asgard. The breathtaking views of the Unreal Engine-powered Frozen North can be captured in handy photo mode.

Currently available through Steam Early Access, developer Paranoid Interactive is preparing for the full release on June 16, 2022 with one last Early Access update.

Become an Earl worthy of the Viking Sagas and make Odin proud!

Over the course of its Early Access year Frozenheim gained much popularity with Steam players. As it developed from a small, 3-people project to a fully-fledged, multi-faceted strategy epic, the game sold nearly 200 000 copies. Following the Early Access launch the development team grew four times in size to be able to meet the expectations of the game’s fast-growing community.

Today’s eighth and final Early Access update, moving the game up to version 0.9, adds a third story campaign. Its four missions focus their narrative around Thorstein, the hero of the Bear Clan, and make up for the total of sixteen scenarios available in the game. The multi-player segment receives its long-awaited matchmaking feature, and siege weapons make their way into the north land battlefields.

The full 1.0 release, slated for Thor’s Day, June 16, will not only bring about the finishing touches to the game’s visuals and gameplay, but will also introduce the fourth story campaign, and a conclusion to the entire Frozenheim legend.

  • Build and expand a Viking village from nothing to a rich, unconquerable settlement
