Vikings of Thule is a social Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) from the game developer Gogogic. In this unique cross platform fully immersive MMO players strive to become respected Viking chiefs on the mysterious and remote island of Thule. The game is free to play on two social networks, Facebook and hi5. Since the game is on a single shard, players can fight, trade and chat seamlessly accross these two social network gaming platforms.
The objective of this fully immersive Facebook MMO is to become one of the 39 chiefs that rule the land and hold a vote on its parliament, the Althingi. To achieve this, players need to outfight and outwit their opponents. You gain riches by trading with other players and managing your growing Viking empire. You gain respect by obtaining special items and by receiving special favours from the Norse gods such as Odin, Thor, Baldur, Heimdallur, Loki and Freyja. Your status is also enhanced by fighting and defeating your opponents in the unique PvP battles (duels).
You’ll have the chance to face your enemies in live, animated battles. Should you become respected enough you will be able to tame Thule’s mythical beasts, the wights, and call upon them in battle where they will come to your aid.
The game will test your management capabilities and your strategic thinking. As you buy land and expand your territory, more and more followers will support your leadership. You will be able to manage your followers and convert them into peasants, huskarls, witches and jarls.
The game introduces a battle system that will test your own avatar’s abilities as well as your own. You can choose to fight using your avatars or Thule´s mythical beasts, the wights.
More than 50 animated moves can be played out in battle and as you become victorious, your avatar and wights will become stronger and more agile. Through wagers (optional bets between you and your foe(s), the winnings of a single battle could be significant. Use your winnings to buy better weapons, more powerful moves, stronger armour, and runes to cast devastating spells in battle.
