First ‘VIKING: Battle For Asgard’ teaser

SEGA has released the first teaser trailer from their new title VIKING: Battle For Asgard, where you’ll immerse yourself in Norse mythology as a Viking warrior named Skarin. We’re not sure if the trailer is made of in-game footage but it looks like it actually may well be. The game is in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and is planned for early next year.

Gary Knight, European Marketing Director SEGA Europe, is certainly very optimistic: “Skarin is a cutting edge hero in a fantastic re-imagining of Norse Mythology. Skarin is obviously a very dangerous man. Add in his inner conflict, a confused heritage and a growing distrust of the Gods and you have the makings of gaming’s next great hero.”

Leave a bloody trail of dismembered foes as you master an involving and addictive combat style with destructive mythical powers and abilities. Explore vast and visually stunning open-world environments whilst slaying your enemies with a huge array of devastating and brutal combat moves. Tame mighty dragons and unleash their rain of fire, laying waste to the enemy hordes that stand in your way. Free enslaved warriors to wage war on Hel’s legion and lead them into huge, epic battles featuring colossal giants, powerful shaman, deadly assassins and Hel’s own champions. Here players can use Skarin’s emerging skills to help turn the tide of conflict with a timely murder or through the brutality of a visceral wave of slaughter.
