Nordic-Themed Action-Adventure Fimbul Releasing Next Month

By Dave Horobin, 1 month ago
Listed as one of our favourite indie games at last year's PAX West, Zaxis and EuroVideo have announced that Fimbul, the upcoming Norse comic action-adventure title, will be releasing on the Xbox One at the end of February.


Fimbulwinter, the prelude to the end of the world known as Ragnarök, has begun. Elder berserker Kveldulver found dead when bandits raided his village, killing him in the process. But the Norns, goddesses of fate and destiny, have other plans for Kveldulver. The goddesses resurrect Kveldulver before sending him on a bloody quest to eradicate the Jotun giants and avert the apocalypse.

Told in a gripping comicbook style, Kveldulver’s story will depend on player decisions, with numerous narrative branches to uncover. As the Norns are the goddesses who spin the threads of fate, they have imbued Kveldulver with the power to go back to pivotal moments in his journey and explore different outcomes.

Kveldulver will also find both stories detailing the world around him and ways to improve his fighting skill. Certain items, weapons and talents enhance the old warrior’s abilities. He’ll need them all to overcome deadly warriors, horrific monsters, and gigantic Jotun alike. Combat is simple to learn, but as players explore the ways of the battlefield, they’ll discover nuances that will prove essential during awe-inspiring boss battles.
Fimbul will release digitally on the Xbox One on February 28th.
