Tribes of Midgard Gameplay

Tribes of Midgard is a 10-player cooperative survival simulation during Ragnarok, the end of the world of Norse mythology. In Tribes of Midgard, you play as a Viking living in the village where the Seed of Yggdrasil is kept. You'll have to explore the wild world to create new weapons and be prepared to defend the shrine in your village from the dark ghosts of Helheim, who are eager to get their hands on the great power. You can play alone or with a team of up to ten people. In Tribes of Midgard, you will have to explore the wastelands inhabited by mythical creatures of the mythology of the North. All this time, the Giant of Jotunheim, seeking to destroy Midgard and fulfil the prophecy of the end of the world, will be approaching you.

In this game, players must build the settlement, power up the playable heroes, mine/craft equipment and gear, and destroy the evil forces of Helheim, who invade at night and want to destroy the seed of the Yggdrasil tree. The colossal giants pursue the same goal. The worlds in the game are randomly generated, which means that each game experience will bear little resemblance to the previous one.

The game will offer both standard survival mechanics, like building and keeping track of needs, and plenty of unique ones. For example, the souls of defeated enemies must be continuously fed to the Yggdrasil seed, so that the world does not come to an end. You can also organize a tribe of up to 10 players, fight monsters and fight off the demons that appear at night to destroy your base.

Although the game is presented in the survival genre, there is no end of the plot, because the player's goal is basically unbeatable. But with each new day or night, the attacks of enemies on the tree become more and more fierce, so only a cohesive group of players will be able to survive for a long time. Fortunately, the cooperative component allows you to combine in the same game up to 10 people playing simultaneously.

Tribes of Midgard positions itself as a session game, but it has a fairly substantial steady progression, which manifests itself in the pumping character. Players can roam from world to world, and the Viking character will retain all of the progression, including the developed perks. Experience is earned in only one way — for successfully surviving a night. Perks have a significant impact on gameplay. One of the abilities will show a special beacon on the mini-map if you are near a teleport shrine. Another ability will allow you to get a rare resource through the sorting of items, and so on.

Bosses in Tribes of Midgard are the Jötunns, which appear at a distant point from the village and slowly head towards the tree. Players must destroy the Jötunn because once they reach the village, they can destroy Yggdrasil in less than a minute. But it will be extremely difficult to slay the giant with your bare hands. Therefore, to successfully fight Jotun, the player will need to create special equipment with a specific element for different giants.
