Vikings of Thule loot and pillage on hi5

Reykjavik, December 22, 2010 - Gogogic announces the launch of the social massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) Vikings of Thule on hi5.

‘hi5 is a perfect platform for a game like Vikings of Thule. We like to describe it as one of the few fully immersive MMORPGs that is available on the social networks. It has always been our aim for Vikings of Thule to create an authentic and immersive experience based on the Viking age and use social features to enhance the gameplay. With this release, players can fight, trade and chat within the game across social networks as the game is on a single shard. That is unique for a MMORPG social game.,´says Jonas Antonsson, the CEO of Gogogic.

In Vikings of Thule, players will have to fight bravely and manage resources carefully in order to climb up the social ladder in the harsh Viking society on the remote and harsh island of Thule. Only the most skilled, cunning and respected Vikings will be chosen to join the ancient parliament, the Althingi.

When it is time to settle the score on who is the ultimate Viking Chief, players can enter the local battle arena and duel in the unique live player versus player system against both online players and in a single player mode. The battle arena features a random duel option that uses a sophisticated AI to find and match the player against a rival with similar skills. Alternatively, a player can choose to fight against the game‘s advanced AI system through single player dueling. An in-game chat system available in the battle arena enables players to communitcate with other players globally. With this release a comprehensive tutorial will be added to the game, making iteven more accessible to new players who want to unleash their inner Viking.
