August Additions

Greetings Warriors,

These past few weeks into our release have been incredible. We have had many Let’s Players reviewing our game, review sites love us, and we’ve been getting a lot of feedback from our Steam discussion board.

With the initial excitement of launch spurring us forward, and with all the great insight we are receiving from our community, we will be moving forward with new features and content additions that we will be able to share with backers and Early Access supporters through development!

July – We open the gates to Steam Early Access!

Greetings Warriors

WE’RE ON STEAM! WE’RE FINALLY ON STEAM! This is an amazing moment for us all, and WE CAN’T THANK YOU ENOUGH :D!!!!

We Have Sent Out Keys

All backers who have Early Access steam keys as part of their reward have been emailed. Please check your inbox and if you haven’t received your key, please let us know at [email protected] We want to get everyone playing during this exciting time!

New Contest – Community Conquest Challenge!

Now that WE ARE ON STEAM we have put together a much bigger challenge for the community, with more rewards to be had, and you will have to work together to get as much loot as you can. In order to participate, all you need to do is the following:

Register your email if you haven’t already.

All winners from draws will be picked from our email list.

  • Defeat many enemies
  • Attack ships and settlements in the Iron Tides
  • Send worthy warriors to Valhalla

All of this will be tracked and combined with the community as a whole, so work together to beat the challenges.

Some rewards will be made available to all players, but more exclusive rewards will be given away in a draw as we select a random name from our email list to receive the prize!

More details on the contest page.

For Glory!

June Reinforcements

Hail Warriors,

Mercenaries have made their way onto the battlefield. With improved shields, new abilities, and a bold leader, these new enemies are much tougher than the Black Fleet pirates. You will need to train your warriors well. Remain fearless, and victory shall be yours!

Full Steam Ahead!

We are in the process of moving the updates to Steam. The demo will no longer be updated on the website as we move closer to the final version with all new features and content for Steam Early Access. In addition to the new quests, enemies, and bosses to discover, we will be releasing an entirely new warrior for you to bring into battle: The Wolf Priestess! We look forward to delivering this update to all our Kickstarter Backers. Late Backers can still pre-order the game at IronTides.com to get access to all of this content (at a discount) when we go to Early Access!

New Contest

We have been getting a lot of feedback from the community, which has helped considerably in development. In return, we are putting together another contest giveaway! The details are still being worked out, but we are hoping to make this one much bigger with your support and include more winners and a variety of in-game prizes 🙂 Stay up to date on new developments by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and as always you can directly contact us at [email protected]

Stay Ruthless!

May’s Show of Force

Hail Warriors

Our new Pirate Boss, Aegir, rises from below deck, and challenges your Vikings in a new build (125)! He’s a tough one, with a deadly crew to back him up. Get the demo, take him on in a Skirmish, and let us know what you think!
Investing Time Into Quality

And now for some bad news… Because of the work we are putting into combat, we are going to delay our release date (to make sure the game is up to the high standards we have promised you). This will allow us to fine-tune everything and will give us much more time to gather additional player feedback and make adjustments.

Loot Is On Its Way

Great news! After a long journey, traveling miles to get here, they have arrived at our doorstep: The Backer DICE! We are now fulfilling the orders of our loyal Chieftains who stood by us in the Kickstarter. Thank you for your patience!

And lastly, for those MOST patient among us, we have the winner of our competition: Defeat Jarhargal (our very first boss) with all 4 Vikings still alive… . That winner is…
