“We are thrilled the great team at Norsfell chose to work with Gearbox Publishing. Their vision, talent, and tenacity have moved us so much we are sure gamers will love the game and Gearbox Publishing is happy to do our part.” said Steve Gibson, president of Gearbox Publishing. “Tribes of Midgard is a game we are proud to now call part of the Gearbox Publishing family that we can’t wait to share with everyone.”
Fans will need to explore the wilderness to craft new weapons and be prepared to defend the sacred center of your village from the grim shadows from Helheim that prey upon its power. All the while, giants stalk ever closer to the village, seeking to destroy Midgard and fulfill the prophecy of the end of the world.
“We’ve been building Tribes of Midgard with the community from the start and have big plans for the game, so Gearbox came as the perfect fit to realize our vision. We couldn’t be more excited to bring the game to a full launch next year,” said Julian Maroda, founder and CEO of Norsfell. “We’re very eager to push the boundaries of what’s possible with Gearbox and Sony’s support.”
