The new tale takes place in the familiar world of Endoria featured in the previous games, but begins in the Viking lands.  A world which the celebrated hero Bill Gilbert never visited during his famous quest in King’s Bounty: The Legend.  Players take the role of the Mighty Olaf, son of the Konung of Northlings, who has dedicated his life to battling the undead that have infested the northern lands of Endoria. To aid him in his quest he can call on the Valkyries in battle. He seeks to liberate the snowy wastes, Dwarven dungeons, and the very heart of Endoria, the kingdom of Darion itself, from the dark grip of necromancy. On his quest towards immortal glory he will encounter cunning foes and new friends, hard battles and amazing adventures.

Warriors of the North has all new features which include an improved skill tree, a new runic magic school, the ability to forge items, the Chant ability that is unique to the Skald class which can turn the tide of battle and the new fearsome race of Vikings.
