Northgard is a strategy game based on Norse mythology in which you control a Clan of Vikings fighting for the control of a mysterious newfound continent.
After years of tireless explorations, brave Vikings have discovered a new land filled with mystery, danger and riches: NORTHGARD.
The boldest Northmen have set sail to explore and conquer these new shores, bring fame to their Clan and write history through conquest, trading, or devotion to the Gods.
That is, if they can survive the dire Wolves and Undead Warriors roaming the land, befriend or defeat the giants, and survive the harshest winters ever witnessed in the North.
• Build your settlement on the newly discovered continent of Northgard
• Assign your vikings to various jobs (Farmer, Warrior, Sailor, Loremaster...)
• Manage your resources carefully and survive harsh winters and vicious foes
• Expand and discover new territory with unique strategic opportunities
• Achieve different victory conditions (Conquest, Fame, Lore, Trading...)
STORY MODE: RIG’S SAGA
The Viking High King is murdered and his Regal Horn is stolen by a man named Hagen.
This event kickstarts a saga that will take Rig, his son and heir accompanied by his right-hand man Brand through the new continent of Northgard.
The continent where he will make new friends and foes and discover a much greater threat than Hagen, and the reasons behind his father’s assassination.

Northgard Positive Reviews
Kinda like “age of empires” from PCThe game is lovely to play, I only wish it had a Feedback button to submit bugs to the developer(s). Because first day launch, I have music problems of it getting loud then quiet, which is fine I expect bugs. It’d be nice if you could mess with the graphic settings so it doesn’t eat your battery( very quickly). I’m still learning the controls and all, but I’m already having fun. I’m pretty sure- when you start off, the map looks small and you question “what did I really buy?”, well the map soon becomes surprisingly big when you get scouts exploring around. The graphics are nice, runs smooth, sparks childhood memories, worth the little money. Not saying it’s a fan game based technically on “age of empires”. It’s different-especially how there’s so many ways to have victory instead of just slaughtering everyone in other clans. Worth the money really. Hope they let us in more on the road of development or at least be hinting stuff in updates they release, it’d be nice if they actually listen to ideas/suggestions we make for them- like saying something is vastly overpowered. Will be playing it more. Keep the motivation to add more, can’t make any ideas? You have the entire Apple users,,, make a button in the game that lets us report bugs or ideas, something. Very fun game :).Version: 1.2
Really should’ve been a 4.5 star but they don’t offer that.The game definitely deserves maximum stars. It is gorgeous well done. My only complaint is it clearly was a port of some sort from windows. When you click certain icons it shows you a little mouse that you have to hit the right button on which I have no idea how to do on an iPad. It would’ve been nice if they made the game a little more iPad friendly also. The buttons on the left are really out-of-the-way on my large iPad when I need to constantly switch back-and-forth. A little bit of redesign in the I would’ve been huge for me my only complaint is it clearly was a port of some sort from windows.

Great port of an amazing game!I have played this for a good long while on PC before they have made some of the changes that the game currently has on PC. This phone version has added some good quality of life improvements due to the nature of being ported to phone! Honestly some of these changes would be a welcome addition to on the PC.
This is a great RTS with survivalist elements, it’s a slower paced game so if you want a quick game you probably aren’t going to like this. This game is a cross between civilization and some of the RTS like Warcraft, it’s simple yet challenging at the same time. It even has modes to make it more challenging than what it already is. It hours and hours of fun. Every Clan has it own perks, advantages and downsides that change how you go about playing the game.
Considering I have payed over $40 for this game and all of its DLCs’s getting it minus the DLC’s for $8 is an absolute steal! I gladly bought this game again and will buy its DLC even if I won’t play it anywhere near as often as I would on my PC!.Version: 1.2
Love this gameNot a mindless mass produce more troops than your enemies RTS, this one really makes you think several steps ahead and things happen at random that can mess up best laid plans. This is sometimes frustrating and I am still learning the game. Having a hard time understanding the victory points to win the game but it is not impossible and I look forward to learning as I play more and more. I bought all the clans add on hoping that they all play different and so far the ones I have tried do so that adds to the replay ability of the game. I began having trouble with the sound on my copy of the game, thought it was my device iPad mini, so I began deleting apps thinking this might help, as you can probably tell I am not very tech savvy. Anyway this did not help and the sound has continued to get worse. But the game still plays good and I like it a lot so I don’t know if it is the game or my device so I won’t let it affect my 5 star review awesome game!.Version: 1.2
Absolutely incredible!This is my first review in 15 years of playing IOS games. I adore this game! Deep, complex, huge replay value, spectacular campaign! One important and persistent issue though; I am operating on iPhone 8, and the game crashes for me randomly between 5 and 20 minutes after starting at any point during that time.
As near as I can determine, it’s a heat related issue, because even at minimum graphics it’s a pretty resource intensive game. However, 5 to 20 minutes after playing (the physical phone only bend a bit hotter than usual) the game crashes, always. I’ve had some success with incessant saving every 2 minutes of gameplay; that seems to delay the crashes. Furthermore, sometimes it tends to shut down while you’re saving, which deletes your entire save file from the device instead of saving properly.
TL:DR- Three issues: iPhone 8, iOS 13.3.1
1: heat-based random crashes (5-20m between)
2: crash while saving resulting in game save wipe
Apart from that, rated a fair 4/5 because the game is 5/5 but these issues are gamebreaking, and I don’t like having to save obsessively and play in front of a fan to not have it crash. Introduce a low-graphics mode maybe?
Thank you for a great game, stay awesome devs!.Version: 1.3
Great game, bad iOS portFor those that didn’t know, Northgard is available on PC through Steam and I highly recommend playing it on there as there are some issues with this game being poorly optimized for mobile. The gameplay IS fun and offers some level of replayability with the different clans otherwise.
The issue is that there are things that I can’t recommend the iOS version for. First, the game is VERY laggy after more than 15 mins of play or so. Frame rates will drop and never return especially if you get a phone call or text during the game. Furthermore there is a weird bug where the game will cause the phone to darken after a minute like it’s going to sleep even though it never does. This makes seeing the already small sprites harder. Finally, the game tends to cause the phone to heat up, and definitely drains the battery quite a bit during play.
Overall I can’t recommend iOS, just buy it on Steam it really is worth it as the mobile version is more frustration in poor execution of an otherwise fun game..Version: 1.3
Brilliant.This game is the perfect example of how mobile platforms should be developed and monetized. With the core game having tons of content and plenty of engagement with the full experience, the additional packages are worthwhile for anyone who plays the PC game.
Northgard has a fantastic UI that works on both phones and IPads, engaging gameplay and countless hours of worthwhile variants keep players engaged.
Buy buying it once and not being forced into “$.99” continual purchases it offers next-level fun and impressive, beautiful visuals. Finally, a mobile RTS game that doesn’t nickel and dime players into oblivion or make you wait hours for new buildings or character development..Version: 1.2
So much funI hadn’t actually played the game on PC but from what I can tell, this is a perfect port to mobile. Some ports are barely functional, sadly. There is a little bit of a learning curve but I actually found it a little easier to understand than something like rimworld, for example. UI is nice, I like that you can change the text sizes. The only problem is that it crashes, not sure if this is just on iPad. It doesn’t seem to auto save frequently enough because I lost about 30 minutes of progress..Version: 1.2
Incredible GameThis game has so much charm! The Scandinavian theme with battling clans is so much fun and adds such a creative dynamic between games. The gameplay never gets boring because there is always something to do and work towards. Honestly the game can be deadly! Surviving winter is a challenge itself, not to mention other clans battling to take control of your areas. If you like strategizing on how to take down your opponent through brute force, higher advancements, or just pure intellect, then this game is for you!.Version: 1.2
Fun game, but crashes a lot for nowI’ve really enjoyed playing this game and beat the story mode. However, the game crashes more than every 15 minutes and I have to save quite frequently to try and avoid losing my progress. Even so, it’s frustrating to make up for five minutes of gameplay every fifteen to twenty minutes. I know it’s new, so the kinks are still getting worked out, but I would appreciate it if the crashing got fixed.
In case this helps, I am playing on an iPad Air 2 and have IOS 14.4.2. Thanks for the game and hard work!.Version: 1.2
Love this game must have for rts fansI have been playing this game for years now have it on pc switch and now my phone. Switch it gets really choppy towards end game so hopefully this isn’t the case with my iPhone 12 Pro Max since it had more ram and a more powerful gpu cpu. Runs amazing so far. I consider this a top tier rts along with the likes of Starcraft and age of empires. It does it in a different way that really shines and is really immersive and fun. Worth every penny as long as the performance can hold out..Version: 1.2
Battery drainer - solved!It took me a hot second to figure out how to assign workers but overall I am pleasantly engaged...until I got the low battery closing down message. It’s a bit of an energy user, but I got 3 hours of play time in, which felt like 3 minutes. This one is a charmer and worth the $ so far. edit: Changed my rating to 5 stars. There is a high performance checkbox in the graphics setting. Unchecking stopped the battery drain. Now I can play all day. :).Version: 1.2
Just downloadedJust downloaded, started the app and so far it’s a beautiful game for mobile. The idea of bringing full fledged games to mobile rather than wait X days for building to upgrade and pay premium currency really showcases what’s possible for mobile gamers. The campaign so far runs smoothly and I look forward to updating my review as I go through the game. Great work Playdigious :) I’m looking forward to interacting with your brand more often!.Version: 1.2
Great game, but the port is a little buggyLove the gameplay, runs great, but there have been some notable bugs I haven’t seen in the pc version. Like the beginning of chapter 5 of the campaign (idk if anyone but me plays it but whatever I enjoy it) seems to bug out with an unending cut scene. Also I wish there were better options for selection and deselection, as well as character assignments. Ultimately minor gripes, but I hope they don’t ruin the experience of a newer player. Probably will all be fixed in like an update though.Version: 1.2
Why won’t scouts investigate other clan?I would give the game five stars because it is really fun to play. Very addictive. However, it’s got two glitches that are big issues. It crashes periodically for no apparent reason so saving often is a must. The worse issue for me is that the scouts won’t penetrate the other clan’s land so I can never fully conquer the island. The only time it’s possible is if I find and heal one of the flying creatures. If that doesn’t happen, then I can never penetrate the blackness to get to the rest of the island..Version: 1.2
Finally an actual RTS for iOS!I grew up playing games like these on my pc, and always wondered why they never released something similar for iPad etc... but seeing this weeks ago in the upcoming section made me very curious. Finally playing it for hours, this game is fantastic and well done. I hope you guys stay consistent with new game content, and bring multiplayer about, but awesome game so far!!!.Version: 1.2
Good but bad tutorialGreat game once you figure out how to play on your own the tutorial dosent cover everything for instance you can’t walk past land that you didn’t clear yet lvl 2 you hav em to save some one but I didn’t know I had to clear the previous enemy’s before trying to save them or that in lvl 3 for instance i had to look it up it dosent tell you to scope an enemy owned land you have to upgrade scout building and a few other small things but the tutorial could use some work.Version: 1.2
Love having this on iPadPlayed some on PC, but like it more having it on iPad so I can play anywhere, and without the fans spinning up. It’s really great game play. Nice survival/building/strategy game.
Would love to see a few improvements:
I am hearing the music issues others are talking about, requiring a restart.
Would be nice to be able to make the map a little larger (width of the season indicator) on iPad. It’s just really hard to see.
Feels like adding buildings could have a little tighter UI. Right now having to tap build in the menu, then having the rotate/ok/cancel buttons in the opposite corner is a bit awkward.
Keep up the great work though, it’s nice to have such a quality game on iOS..Version: 1.2
Great PortIt is unrealistic to expect this port to match micro controls with that of PC, but it is good enough. I managed to complete all chapters in extreme due to Save Spam Trick. Extreme difficulty might NOT be doable in a straight play through because of how easy it is to fat finger the controls. Enemy AI needs to be toned down slightly to allow for such mistakes and still have a chance to win..Version: 1.2
Please add newest featuresFirst of all, love the game, it’s tremendously fun and reminds of age of empires but harder. However, I was so disappointed to learn a lot of the newest features from the game didn’t make the port... this basically makes the replayability a fat zero as I already beaten the campaign on PC. Really needing the new game mode with added challenges & of course multiplayer. Please consider this for future updates, I would even be willing to pay a bit more or add it to the base cost of the game?.Version: 1.2
Amazing Port. Please add multiplayer!As a fan of the PC version, I at first had some doubts at how well Northgard would transition to iPad. I now enjoy this game even more while sitting in bed or on my couch! Absolutely amazing job! You guys knocked it out of the park.
PLEASE add cross-platform multiplayer! I would love to be able to enjoy this game with my friends while playing from my iPad..Version: 1.2
Very well madeThis game really reminded me of a game I was just playing on my computer called becastled, but this game has some very key differences in it that make it more challenging and more fitting to the type of game it is. I also gotta say that I love the look of the game and it’s design. Maybe a multiplayer mode would be a fun experiment..Version: 1.2
Great game, a little awkward on mobileFirst off, I love this game and the different varieties between clans. However, I constantly find myself clicking on things that I didn’t intend to when I’m trying to scroll across the map or select something else.
Secondly, there is no multiplayer in the mobile version, which is a bummer.
Hopefully they will fix these issues to do this great game justice, and then I will give it more stars..Version: 1.2
Excellent port to iOSI liked the PC version of this game very much and was a little concerned about the touch screen controls and how they would be implemented. In my opinion, it’s been done exceptionally well. The controls are intuitive and the subtle changes to the mechanics are smart..Version: 1.2
Fun but has bugsIt’s a really fun game but it does eat your battery very quickly and the game will randomly crash at time. An auto save feature would be nice and a report bug option so you don’t lose progress after you’ve been playing a while. Other than that the game plays very good and is enjoyable to play.Version: 1.2
Just some minor bug problemsThe game is great and I truly find it enjoyable. However, the bugs will kick me off and I have to start the mission from the beginning. The game won’t let me even buy the bundles, but what can you do it is still early to tell. So far, I find it fun and it does need small touch ups here and there..Version: 1.2
Great game, devs forgot the basicsThis is a good rts, but there’s definitely missing features you would expect to be standard in a game
But there’s issues like the lack of an ability to skip cutscenes. Or the fact you can’t seem to restart a mission without literally deleting the app
5 star gameplay, but the lack of some basic features makes it an annoying experience.Version: 1.2
Great RTSSo hard to find an actual RTS game on the App Store. Came across this gem! No ridiculous timers. Can play a full game in one day. So happy I found this. Hope they add multiplayer! Please developers add multiplayer! It would be so cool to play with friends. Still easily worth 5 stars.Version: 1.2
Power HungryReally like game except it is the only app I have (among hundreds) that does its best to waste my battery. As iOS device batteries are a consumable, I consider excessive battery use a cost to be factored in. I tried turning down the graphics quality without seeing improvement. I would not play this if on the road. You will need an outlet or booster pack for this one!.Version: 1.3
Good GameI like the game so much, but the game uses too much battery. My Ipad die very fast although I use the newest Ipad Pro 12.9. One more problem with the game is that the game’s functions is kind of difficult to use, especially to control the units. I hope you guys improve as soon as possible. I love the game so far..Version: 1.2
Love the Game play and no in app purchasesNeed to fix the constant crashes please!
Playing on ipad 5th gen on non high performance mode and the game crashes and force closes without saves a lot! Frustrating if you forget to keep saving every 10 minutes...
If crashes fixed I would give this a 5 star rating, its a great game.Version: 1.2
Make sure u scale up in settings menu to 2x !Wish the font could be a little bigger and zoom in further, the 2x option is not bad its passable but i can tell my eyes are going to be tired from all the squinting I’ll be doing and I'm using 12 pro max. Still an amazing game glad it made it to ios..Version: 1.2
Scouts bugLove the game so far! One thing I found is that the scouts cannot scout enemy territory, which makes it hard to win a domination match if you can’t enter the enemies territory to fight them. Hopefully this gets fixed soon..Version: 1.2
Needs multiplayer!Love this so much such a fantastically well done game! One thing I would really like to see is multiplayer cause I’d love to play this with my friends! Can’t wait to see the future of this game!.Version: 1.2
Fun game but....Where’s the tutorial?
Have to learn as you go. Also, selecting characters is annoying. Sometimes it selects everyone and I can’t seem to unselect them all...have to keep playing around until I get it.
Otherwise I like the graphics and concept..Version: 1.2
Love itPlease add multiplayer, I was going to give it 4 stars because there no multiplayer but Im giving it 5 because you deserve it but please dont let me down, I'll buy DLCs but I need multiplayer to stay hooked.Version: 1.2
AOE Fan approvedBy far best game play on iOS I have ever downloaded. I tip my hat to the creators and anyone who had a helping hand in the making of Northgard. Please DO NOT make it free and add in-app purchases to this game. Two thumbs way up👍👍.Version: 1.2
A favorite!I really enjoy playing this game on the PC and was so excited to have it available on iOS. I wish that more games would do the same!!.Version: 1.2
Love everything but the scout bugIn single player mode your scouts will eventually remain idle and not scout the rest of the map making it impossible to win by domination as you can’t enter the undiscovered territories..Version: 1.2
Really AmazingLove it, I am always browsing strategy/builder games that bring me back to the AOE and EE days, never found one until now. 36 years old and I played it for hours. Really enjoyable.Version: 1.2
Love this game!Already have more then an hr playing this. At first it was somewhat confusing. But once I understood the villagers can be assigned, and you need to explore it became enjoyable. Easily best mobile game for your buck..Version: 1.2
Awesome strategy gameI’ve been playing non stop since release and love it. Reminds me of the old school stronghold game on pc. Well done! Really hope an online mode is coming..Version: 1.2
Great GameGreat game - classic “age of empires” feel. Game does heat your phone up to the point of not being able to hold it after playing for too long..Version: 1.2
Battery DrainerGreat game but extremely power demanding. I play on a new IPad Pro with medium brightness and with the power plugged in and battery still slowly go down over time. Also gets hot too..Version: 1.3.1
Amazing!!I’ve never played a game as fun as this one. I find myself playing this during any free time. There’s also so much replay ability. Very good port!.Version: 1.2
Great game!Nice work - AI is challenging and lots of variety in the missions! Looking forward to more!.Version: 1.3
Best real time strategy! Till now!I was waiting for so long for a game like this. I don’t know why no one have made a game like this, classic real time strategy like age of empires or old school rise of nations....Version: 1.2
Laggy12 Pro Max.Version: 1.2
Good game, bad iPad portGood game but the iPad experience feels like a let down.
Crashes about every time I play. Autosaves not often enough and I find myself losing 10m of gameplay every time.
The other aspect is the iPad controls being clunky and not ergonomic. Select units from the right side of the screen, but cancel selection on the left side. Tapping in the void doesn't close the build menu when nothing is selected. Etc..Version: 1.2
Worth the pennyI loved the game.
I just don’t like when it crash and lose your current data so a “save” is highly recommended every now and then.
Hopefully they add multiplayer and I’m looking forward for more Clans..Version: 1.2
Too many crashes!I like the game, but it crashes constantly. I also wish there was a way to quickly find a building instead of scrolling around on the map and getting lost..Version: 1.2
Excellent portVery well done iOS version of a great PC game..Version: 1.2
Great investmentI play this game from my Apple TV, I truly enjoy that I can pick up any device and continue from where I left off...can I be part of the beta team???.Version: 1.2
Good Game with Some Small DrawbacksThis is basically the PC game on mobile with an altered (albeit clunky) UI. Lots of fun and enjoy exploration and villager controls.
The biggest con is the lack of graphics settings (specifically reducing options). This game absolutely DEVOURS your battery and the phone will get very hot.
I am using an iPhone 12 pro max and the game will just eat your phone after a short while. Recommend using an ipad or if you use your phone, play in short intervals to not overheat your device..Version: 1.2
Keeps crashing ughKeeps crashing when the game starts getting good ugh then i have to redo 15 minutes of playing.Version: 1.2
Meilleur jeux mobile everRien à dire de plus que j’adore.Version: 1.2
!!!The game is really nice , but it drain the batery of the mobile so quick .....Version: 1.2
Awesome game!I love it! Are you guys planning on adding multiplayer? I think itd work perfectly to be honest..Version: 1.2
Great game!I love everything that is about the Norse mythology and this game is exactly what I wanted for a mobile game. There’s one thing I would like to be added in this game though. It would be cool if we could make our clan without any competition. Like being able to expand our clan slowly and take our time without worrying about losing the game.
Either way thanks for this great game.Version: 1.2
Nice GameIs long time I was lucking for one game like that hope in the future can play in multiplayer versus other people. Is gonna be perfect 🤗.Version: 1.2
