Life as a Viking is hard. In the unfriendly northern territories of Iceland evil enemies, bad weather and icy winters are the are among the most frequent dangers to come up against in the fight for survival. Gamigo's strategy game Cultures Online wants you to become a great Viking hero and lead your people wealth and growth under these difficult circumstances. You will have to turn your small village into a great empire and therefor will need a lot of skill and good judgement on your re-con missions and on the battlefield. But first of all you will have to choose your character: Are you a Warrior, Ranger or Berserker? Warriors are fierce and expert fighters specialized in close combat. But they are also "homey": keeping the family's stock of wood in order to prevent frost boils during hard winters is one of their jobs, too.
Rangers excel through their brainpower and smart war tactics. Also, they usually do some research in their personal alchimist workshop. Berserkers – well this is a telling name, really – are kind of daredevils and have a lot of bodily strength. Their uncanny use of two hand weapons adds even more authority to their presence. They work in the quarry if they are not busy with their expansive adventures. As one of these charcters you will collect a lot of experience and points when completing your quests. A statistic overview helps to check on your development. Adventures will take place randomly or are set in a definite storyline. If you don't feel like going out adventuring on your own, invite some friends and co-players to build alliances and join and follow you around in your quests all over the world.
