Northgard Conquest

Return to News

Northgard Conquest is a standalone game-mode that can be played solo or co-op, with a succession of various challenges offering a gaming expansion of +100 hours. The difficulty of the co-op mode will be based on strong collaboration between players.

Forget the lore, choose your clan and let's fight!

CHOOSE YOUR OWN WAY

Northgard Conquest offers you the possibility to choose your own experience when facing the harsh challenges of Northgard Conquest.

TAKE THE THRONE ON YOUR OWN

If you want to challenge yourself and personalise your Clan with unique bonuses whilst counting on your own skills and decisions, then choose the Northgard Conquest solo-mode, defeat the other clans and claim the Throne.

Believe in your strengths, establish the best strategy, exploit resources in an optimal way and build the most formidable clans to endure Northgard’s relentless hostility!

UNIFY YOUR CLANS

Another addition is the ability to share your adventure and overcome the harsh obstacles with the power of collaboration in the new Northgard Conquest co-op mode.

Northgard Conquest encourages teams to experiment and discover every combo available in this game-mode! But beware, Northgard Conquest is a cunning opponent! Having two in a team means double power, double bonuses and of course, double the problems! But nothing is impossible for fearless vikings.

Plan a global strategy, divide the tasks, collaborate, and master the continent together!

CONQUEST MAP

Northgard Conquest introduces a brand new way to present and organize all the different challenges Northgard Conquest offers: The Conquest Map.

The Conquest Map is formed by several challenges, 3 of which are specific to each Clan (and adapted to their specialties) which remain constant. The other challenges are pulled from a random pool of challenges, which means that if you restart a Conquest with the same Clan, you will get a different map with different challenges! As soon as you succeed in one of the 3 specific challenges, several different paths are unlocked and the choice of which path you take is up to you.

EXTREME DIFFICULTY MODE

In addition to the basic difficulty modes (Easy / Normal / Hard), Northgard Conquest has introduced most challenging difficulty yet: Extreme Mode.
