Hello Vikings!

Today, we’re releasing a comprehensive balance patch designed primarily around feedback and suggestions posed to us by the community since our last balancing patch back in March. We’ve made a number of major changes and even introduced some new mechanics with this update and you can see everything we’ve been working on below!

Warning!

Please note that we have introduced a backup system for the game progress save file. As with any new system, there is a risk to lose your progress. Please make a copy of any files starting by "stats_" contained in your "save" folder.
