    Linux GOG buyers BEWARE:

    The GOG version of this game REQUIRES Galaxy for multiplayer, won’t function without it, since Galaxy is not available on Linux, you can’t play multiplayer in this version.

    From the footnote:

    “Please note: The GOG Galaxy Client is required to access online features for Northgard. Multiplayer is available between and Steam users.

    Please note that multiplayer is available on Windows and macOS only.”

    If you’re a Linux user (most likely since you are visiting this site) get it on Steam!

      That I’m not surprised with that. You can run GOG Galaxy using Lutris.
      I’d be very curious to know how multiplayer functions via Lutris.

      And thanks for the confirmation.
