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…)

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 Reviews

Just finished the game and it is a cross between CIV 6 and StarCraft. It is easy to start but hard to master.

Great games are even better if they are in Chinese!

We absolutely love this game, we’ve been playing for a couple years now and our only complaint would just be some minor bugs.

It is a fascinating game. Why not add a keyboard and mouse control mode? When player connect a keyboard and mouse, then change the control mode to a standard PC RTS way. That would be much fun.

This game is excellent, but it is a pity that it lacks Chinese. We hope to add Chinese to this game.

Dropping one star because game constantly crashes on us at random.

New Review: 4/5 stars Please add controller support for this game. Was surprised and disappointed to see that when using the Backbone for iPhone controller, it isnt recognized and there didnt seem to be any settings for controllers in the game either. Please add support! Original review: 5/5 stars Glad to see it ported. This is a great price for an awesomely fun game. Bought it on the Switch for $17.99 on sale (the best ever sale price for the game on the Switch), and that was a great deal. Literally a steal at $8.99. Lot of fun.

Lots of sound bugs tried reinstalling but same issues every time. Great game though, just have to play it the sound off.

So, Ill start by saying that this game is extremely fun, and the graphics are very nice for the year NorthGard was created. The problem that we’ve been having with the game recently, is that when you save your progress and leave the game, once you boot back up and try to start from your save point, a message pops up saying Saved games are being synchronized with the cloud. Would you still like to continue? As soon as this message pops up, whether you click yes or no, or do nothing at all, the game crashes. Im currently running the game on our iPad Air 4(th Gen.), which is far more powerful than devices that were available when it was released, on 03/07/2018. Other than the game crashing when trying to boot up a save point, its a very well put together game. If Shiro Games would correct this issue, the game would easily be worth 5 stars.

We absolutely love this game, its the RTS fix on mobile we’ve been looking for, but it crashes so frequently that its become almost unplayable. Dearest devs, there is an issue with this game synching with Game Center and crashing that is destroying its playability. Please please please look into a patch for this.

The audio glitches. The soundtrack sounds like a DJ remix of something awful and combat sound effects take at least 10 seconds to catch up. Other than that this is a great introduction to this particular game type for us. Please fix!

Its good game, with graceful music, we like War3 like game. Though it has concise operations for mobile device, still hardly to operate on iPad pro 12.9, hardly to choose unit, font still small with 1.75x. It only a game for PC.

The game itself is fantastic and one of our favorites. Unfortunately it crashes way too much. Especially when loading / saving the game. The game seems to crash more and more as we progress.

But its just not playable on phone. To many micro touches required. On an IPad its probably still great. With a phone there no shot.

Im most of the way through the story at this point and its been great but am now dealing with sound cutting out and crashes.

The game is entertaining, but it unfortunately crashes often, to the point where it becomes unplayable. We opened our first ticket with customer service and didnt receive a response for 5 days. They asked some questions, which we promptly answered, but didnt receive another reply for another couple of days. Their final response was to wait for the next patch to hopefully fix our issue and, in the meantime, they suggested we play shorter sessions and restart our iPad in between sessions. Horrible. We opened another ticket requesting a refund, but still havent heard back in over a week.

We loved this game, but now we get random crashes. Whats worse, when the game tries to reload the latest save, it just crashes again, re-open, try to re-load save game, crash. Unplayable at this point. It looks like it is trying to sync the loaded games then crash.

The total building limit for a single area seems unnecessarily low and easily becomes a ball and chain that slows the gameplay down to a slog which makes it particularly frustrating at times and overall just not that enjoyable to play. A player should be able to make a minor mistake in build order that early in the game and not drive themself immediately into the ground. If they have enough supplies to make another building and there is visible space on the ground for said building, why would they not be able to place it down? Just seems unreasonable to force expansion because of building limits when theres clearly usable land and enough resources are had.

Always crushes, especially when we try to save. And A LOT of sound problems. Play somewhere else but not on the ios.

We purchased the game last week and it crashes within minutes of opening the game every single time. We have reached out to the support team via the app and have yet to receive a response.

Unplayable with the constant crashes. Cant even open it now.

Game crashes 1 minute into playing it every time.

We cant believe, how bad the UI is. We can#t make head nor tail why our people are unhappy. If we have warriors selected and tap on a building, they start to work there immediately and we have no warriors anymore. When we try to assign more warriors, it does not work, bot does not say why. And on and on. Will try to get our money back, this is an absolute trainwreck.

The games are long and if you save and try to load it crashes every single time.

It was a great game Until it started crashing.

We’ve been playing this since release and have most of the expansion packs on STEAM. Recently the game always crashes when you try to start a game. Just play Civ 6 instead sadly.

Apple accepted other refunds but said this one is not eligible why ? We contacted you guys on email and you said we can request a refund and just sent us a link to apple support, something we already did before trying to knock on your doors. Please help us with that. Thanks.

Still crashes constantly on multiplayer, sound keeps glitching, etc. How about fixing that instead of worrying about the Squirrel clan? Maybe you need to upgrade your servers? We bought a 9th gen iPad and it still happens all the time, especially at crucial points in matches which is super frustrating. They dont seem to care at all and did nothing with our support ticket. Lowering our review to 1 star for now because the constant crashing desperately needs fixing and we dont see any urgency on their part to do so after putting out a buggy update. Great game, just wish it didnt crash so much during multiplayer. Its definitely crashing at least 2x more than it was under the previous version.

Great port. Only thing missing is conquest.

Its impossible to save the game. We reported this several times over a year ago. The developers clearly dont care if the game is stable or not we dont understand how anyone can give this game more than 1 star with the bugs we’ve spoken directly with the support team in several occasions. Its still unplayable. On 3 different iPhones now.

Graphics is glitchy and slow, sound is breaking non stop. Why neither App Store nor developer offer refunds in such case, even if the game was purchased 24 hours ago and played less than 30 min? Sad, was looking forward to try the game, but given such experience we doubt we will try it on PC now.

Its so cool looking havent played it yet, but it doesnt say if its online or offline. We were just wondering.

If you have a device that has a quick-draining battery, its going to be drained even faster with this game. That said, Northgard is one of the best rts games we’ve ever played. We highly recommend getting the ox clan first if you want to buy one of the dlc clans if youre still a beginner.

So incredibly rare to find a game like this. A complete, incredibly well put together game with infinite replay potential. Both a story mode and randomized non-story maps to conquer where you can customize the conditions before starting. Great diversity of unique tribes to choose from, all with different weaknesses, strengths, and bonus traits. MOST IMPORTANT: This game has ZERO in-app purchases that you constantly have to pay for. (You can pay for additional unique tribes to play as add-ons, but thats completely optional.). Its a complete, well-crafted game as soon as you download it. 10/10.

It is a lot easier than we expected it to be for a pc rts to mobile port but yup its a hit. We play this on the phone more than we ever did the pc tbh. Very smooth, it only crashes if you have low battery or in power saving mode. BUT the auto save system saves your butt quite often in that regard. We would be knit picking if we had anything bad to say.

Today just updated to 16.3, the game can not open. But now it seems ok. Well, still its a bit expensive for all the clans.

Not worth that much money at all. Should be priced at a dollar at most.

We’ve been playing this game for 6+ months and it has been great. Now, however, it has several glitches and random changes to gameplay that makes this game no longer fun or worth playing. We’ve reached out to support several times – no response. Wouldnt buy again without support responding and fixing.

We gave it 1 start because the game keeps kicking us out of it. We are playing and suddenly the game stop working and we have to long in again. It happened like 20 times already. How can we fix this? We mean it is not a free game, we paid for it so we wonder if it is positive to fix this big problem. Please and thanks!

We like this game a lot but it keeps crashing. It has crashed so much that we are going to delete it after this message.

Great game, just wish it didnt crash so much during multiplayer. Im on iOS 15. Its definitely crashing at least 2x more than it was under the previous version.

Fantastic game, responsive development team. Thank you.

With ipad m1 works well. With 60fps and normal performance, only gets hot after an hour. Graphic is great and game dynamics are nice. Generally feels like a pc game.

1 month with constant crashes and no fix made. Save your money and choose a game that works properly.
