Northgard gets world-shaping relics in free update

If you were looking for a reason to hop into an RTS, or revisit it, Viking-laden Northgard just got a free update that adds some mighty powerful artefacts to the game.

Each clan can have one relic active at a time, choosing between a selection of five common relics, and one clan-specific one. The effects range from summoning giants or the undead, a legendary weapon for your warchief, revealing all forests, raining down Thor’s wrath and more. They are powerful enough to put a whole new twist on how you approach levels.

These relics require you to use the forge a lot more, and it has been updated to handle the increased demand, getting civilian and military tools built quickly. Oh and you can queue up multiple items now to get ready for expansion or aggression.

It sounds like a meaty enough patch to make me want to hop back in and unleash my inner Viking. The full patch notes are here, if you want to see some of the juicy artefacts waiting to be used.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
