As listagens de jogos nas lojas online por  vezes são uma supresa, Condemned 2: Bloodshot estava listado muito antes de ter sido oficialmente anunciado, o mesmo se passou com Sonic Rivals 2. Desta vez um misterioso jogo chamado Viking estava listado...e confirma-se.
Produzido pelo famoso estúdio europeu Creative Assembly, neste jogo de acção controlas Skarin, um novo herói que luta no mundo dos Vikings e dos seus Deuses(parece-me que God of War vai ter concorrência da pesada). O jogo está previsto para Xbox 360 e PS3 com data prevista para 2008. Em baixo fica a press release:

LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (August 21st 2007) - SEGA® Europe Ltd and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced VIKING: Battle For Asgard™, the latest console title from the award winning and critically acclaimed development studio, The Creative Assembly. As Skarin, a new iconic gaming hero, experience the violent yet spectacular world of the Vikings and their Gods on the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the Sony PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system, early in 2008.

A fierce struggle is taking place within the realm of the Norse Gods. The Goddess Hel has been banished for defying Odin, Lord of Asgard. Angry at her fate, Hel has raised an army of undead warriors to enslave the mortal realm of Midgard, and then provoke Ragnarok - the apocalyptic battle that that will destroy Asgard and the Gods themselves. The task of stopping Hel and defending the future of mankind falls to Skarin, a promising but deeply flawed young warrior, ignorant of the true reason for his favour with the Gods…

Leave a bloody trail of dismembered foes as you master an involving and addictive combat style with destructive mythical powers and abilities. Explore vast and visually stunning open-world environments whilst slaying your enemies with a huge array of devastating and brutal combat moves. Tame mighty dragons and unleash their rain of fire, laying waste to the enemy hordes that stand in your way. Free enslaved warriors to wage war on Hel’s legion and lead them into huge, epic battles featuring colossal giants, powerful shaman, deadly assassins and Hel’s own champions. Here players can use Skarin’s emerging skills to help turn the tide of conflict with a timely murder or through the brutality of a visceral wave of slaughter.

“Skarin is a cutting edge hero in a fantastic re-imagining of Norse Mythology. Skarin is obviously a very dangerous man.” said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director SEGA Europe. “Add in his inner conflict, a confused heritage and a growing distrust of the Gods and you have the makings of gaming’s next great hero.”

VIKING: Battle For Asgard™ is due for release on Xbox 360™ and PlayStation® 3 early in 2008. For more information please visit

Overview

A fierce struggle is taking place within Asgard, the realm of the Norse Gods. The battle has escalated, spilling over to the mortal world of Midgard and now a Champion must be found, a Warrior than can sway this war that threatens the fate of Asgard and the Gods themselves.

The goddess Hel – daughter of Loki, Norse God of mischief, has been banished from the heavenly kingdom of Asgard for defying Odin’s rule. Angry at her fate, she seeks to release the ancient wolf-god Fenrir which legend tells will bring about Ragnarok - the apocalyptic battle that will destroy Asgard and the Gods. With her army of resurrected Viking warriors, Hel marches on the unsuspecting mortal realm of Midgard.

Odin’s daughter Freya, goddess of love and wisdom, is appointed the task of stopping Hel and defending the future of mankind. For her champion she chooses Skarin, a great but troubled young warrior, ignorant of the true reason for his favour with the Gods and thrust into the midst of their bitter war.

As Skarin, players will experience unparalleled battle scenes, leading the charge in a titanic clash between powerful gods and mere men. War on an unprecedented scale will rage across a beautifully realised Viking landscape. Vast, living islands, free form worlds filled with discovery, stealth, brutal combat and culminating in epic battles the like of which have never been seen on console before.
