Arise, Brave Warrior.

I immediately got some Diablo vibes when I watched the trailer of Jötunnslayer: Hordes of HelHowever, it’s not going to be like that, it just gave me those vibes.

Warriors will embark on a hazardous quest through the dark realms of Norse mythology. The game is set to be a gripping roguelike horde arena survival game. It will boast cutting-edge graphics as well as an immersive story arc. Players will choose a fallen soul that has been condemned to suffer in Helheim and wield their blades against legions of foes. Will you survive this relentless quest for redemption?

Helheim is a desolate domain, divine blessings are scarce, and only earned by spilling rivers of blood. Sounds good to me!

The game will have some very hostile realms of the Norse underworld. Warriors will invoke mighty boss battles through ancient rituals and fight to the death in pursuit of salvation.

We are thrilled to announce Jötunnslayer: Hordes of Hel and to be working with the talented team at Games Farm.” commented Peter Nagy, CEO at Grindstone. “With Games Farm’s proven track record in creating immersive and challenging game worlds, we are excited to introduce players to this brutal horde-survival experience.
