Creative Assembly are turning to history in a somewhat different way next week. The developer known for its historically-based Total War strategy series is instead looking at some of its own past, dragging the third-person hack ‘n’ slash title Viking: Battle for Asgard out of the archives.
This game was originally released for consoles back in 2008, but will now be released as a digital title for the PC (with a few graphical enhancements) next week. Steam and Gamersgate have been confirmed as platforms, with more likely to be added.
“We’re looking forward to seeing one of our favourite games find a whole new audience,” says the mysterious figure behind this Creative Assembly twitter account.
Sega’s Hardlight Studio will be handling the port.
