Viking Rage on HTC Vive: Want To Try "Wolf Golf"? Or Go Completely Berserk in "Rage Mode"?

Review Keys Are Now Available - Get enraged with Viking Rage!

Hello everybody,

recently we sent out the first bunch of preview keys of the upcoming VR title, now the review version is available as well. Aside from defending your strongholds, there are a lot more exciting things to do:

Wolf Golf

Vikings were excellent golfers! Little known fact: they used their battleaxes for the drive and wolves as golf balls. And of course you can do that as well in Viking Rage. Physically correct airtime plus ragdolls guarantee cruel landings.

Rage Mode

As you defend your fortress, every killed enemy will raise your rage-o-meter. Once fully charged, you can activate the Rage Mode and go berserk with an overpowered version of your selected weapon, gaining the upper hand against your enemies.

Giant Mode

In the  Giant  Mode, you will be turned into a giant. Towering above your enemies, up to over 300ft, you can grab them and throw them away, or smash them into each other. You like playing with dolls, do you?

Asgard (Sandbox Level)

In  Asgard, you can summon every type of enemy and take a close look at them (or just beat them up as you wish). Alternatively, show off your musician skills by playing the war drums nearby.


Grab your enemies in the  Bestiary and inspect them from every angle.


In order to defend yourself against the charging enemies, you have to find the best position for your attacks. Use the teleporting ability to move from platform to platform, discovering new possibilities of stopping the enemy onslaught.

Fire and ice

Besides exploding barrels, bombs and other explosives you can shoot ice arrows at your foes, which will slow them down. Time your attacks right and activate some heavy traps afterwards.

Vertical Gameplay

Viking Rage explores the full potential of the VR experience by offering moving platforms and vertical level design with enormous altitude differences.

There's no embargo, we appreciate any coverage.

???????The game's release date will be April 28th via Steam for the HTC Vive.
