NetEase Games and MGM today announced the first crossover event between the mobile game vikingard, and the hit television series, Vikings. Debuting in 23 August, the first in-game integration will feature exciting content and exciting themed events related to Season 1 of Vikings that will allow players to experience the journey of the legendary Ragnar Lothbrok.
The Vikings franchise and Vikingard have become true global sensations and the two will meet for the first time at one of the biggest gaming events of the year. Those who have dreamed of fighting alongside heroes from the Vikings universe will finally get the chance through a series of special in-game integrations that will combine Vikings with Vikingard!
The first Vikings themed integration in Vikingard will allow players to recruit and fight alongside Viking characters Ragnar, Lagertha, Rollo and Floki. These characters have been recreated in stunning detail through Vikingard's art design, allowing players to admire them as they battle enemies. Once the first in-game integration is complete, these four Viking characters will accompany and help players on their quests to conquer territories and attack cities.
Players can join and advise Ragnar on his path to becoming king, or they can invite Ragnar, Lagertha, Rollo, and Floki to visit their own tribes and receive information about their respective journeys. Players can even befriend these Viking icons and earn exclusive rewards, allowing them to treasure the memories of the journey together.
How is the Vikingard game?
For those who don't know, Vikingard is a strategy game with some funny features. In the game it is possible to get married and have “intimate” moments with characters from the game. Of course, everything is within the scope of a mobile game on Google Play and App Store.
