that was a great read, thanks anonymage. I initially thought (as I don't pretend to play this game) that vikings were just going to be portrayed as inclusive and pure good and the saxons as ebil natzis(as per usual with any ubi game), but the problems with this games narrative and lore run much deeper. The religion made me laugh, berserker potions, secularism in MEDIEVAL EUROPE(understandable as a (false) depiction of ancient greece, but europe…) and hilariously a god speaking with you personally(a spiritual interpretation would make much more sense). Such a shame, so much potential for making a good game about viking history, culture, religion and people but they butcher it depicting them as christian ubermensch with pagan undertones. This game would be a total flop without the huge marketing effort and the french subsidies.
