So Studio Shiro announced Northgard, the #viking #strategy and #exploration game. Hence the debut release is coming to Early Access on February 22nd. But not for Linux, at least not according to the developers.

Since the developers Studio Shiro, breaking into the strategy genre. While player get to control a small viking clan try to survive on an unforgiving shore. Hence players build a settlement, gather resources, while facing off against the dangerous wilderness.

Early Access was planned since the beginning for Northgard. We are big fans of strategy games and we know the level of perfection we need to attain with player experience, game flow and game systems. This can only be achieved with thorough testing and iteration. Simply put, we need experienced and passionate strategy players to make Northgard the best it can be! Join us to make Northgard the strategy game of your dreams!

This will depend a lot on the feedback we receive. A rough estimate would be 2 to 6 months. 2 being the strict minimum we need to implement features we already have in mind and take your feedback into account.

Northgard features in Early Access:

  • Build settlements on the newly discovered hostile continent of Northgard while assigning and commanding Vikings to various jobs (Merchant, Farmer, Warrior,
  • Sailor, Loremaster…)
  • Manage resources carefully to survive the harsh winters and vicious enemies
  • Expand and discover new territory giving unique strategic opportunities
  • Achieve different victory conditions such as Conquest, Fame, Lore, Trading

Linux release:

“Given the difficulty to build & deploy for different OS, we are focusing on Windows (and OSX) for now and will add Linux support after. Sorry about it, we’re open source fans but we need to put some priorities.”

While Shiro Games will add more content during the development. So in order to get those Linux votes in, throw a comment in the Steam Discussion.
Seeing more features will be added to the game a multiplayer, campaign mode and two playable clans. Northgard is being developed for Windows PC and Mac. Launching within two to six months from February 22nd. So hopefully we can see some native Linux support with enough community backing.
