Sega has announced the PC version of Viking: Battle For Asgard is now available for Windows PC. This title originally developed by The Creative Assembly for Xbox 360 and Playstation in 2008 is now enhanced by Hardlight Studios, a division of Sega.

This was Hardlight’s first project out the door. The title was suppose to be remade with Steam intergration and Russian and Polish language support.

 

“Working with the team at CA was an exciting opportunity for Hardlight.  A high quality benchmark had already been set on the Xbox and PS3 versions and the project offered a variety of new challenges for the team working with CA to deliver high-end content on the PC,” said Lee Winder, Project Lead on the brand new PC version of Viking: Battle for Asgard.

 

Viking: Battle for Asgard is known for its enormous, free-roaming environments and apocalyptic battles between thousands of stalwart Viking troops and murderous demons. The PC version will re-invigorate the game for 2012 with outstanding visuals that take full advantage of modern gaming hardware. Players can scale the resolution, anti-aliasing and other graphical effects according to the power of their PCs for a truly stunning graphical experience.  Viking: Battle For Asgard™ also supports gamepad play, and includes fully-remapped keyboard-and-mouse controls for PC gamers.

The new improved PC version shows all-new graphical features such as screen space ambien occlusion. Ragnarok is now complete with improved lightning and shadows.

Players control Skarin, a young Viking hero, as he masters an evolving repertoire of gory combat skills and mythical powers. As he explores the vast, breath-taking world of Asgard, Skarin learns devastating new attacks, gains new allies and tames mighty dragons to conquer the demonic hordes raised by the scorned death-goddess, Hel. Her aim is to incite Ragnarok, the world-ending battle that will consume Asgard and the very gods themselves.  Only Skarin can rally the Viking clans against her.

 

Viking: Battle For Asgard™ PC is available now for digital download at this link http://store.steampowered.com/app/211160.
