WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Fimbul is a single-player comic-book, action adventure set in the final winter before Ragnarök, The Fimbul Winter.

After being struck down defending his home, an old berserker named Kveldulver is revived by the sisters of fate to prevent Ragnarök. Chosen by the gods, Kveldulver fights his way through vikings, wolves, and the Jotun, a race of fearsome trolls.
Meet new friends, learn new skills, and wield a variety of weapons in the comic-book style frozen land. Branching paths take Kveldulver through different outcomes, but the “Lifestring” mechanic empowers him to go back and experience what could have been. Fimbul’s intuitive combat means it’s easy to jump in, but hard to master.

I’ve been quietly following on with the progress of Fimbul and honestly didn’t expect a release date so soon. The art style looks great and the gameplay looks frantic and bloody and I think it’s definitely a game worth keeping an eye on.
