The RPG Files: Expeditions: Viking ReviewMMORPG
There is a richness in Viking’s world building that is worth applauding. Unlike most roleplaying games, Viking embraces history over fantasy. It hints at the supernatural in its edges but always in a way that can be explained by the less superstitious. Exploring the frozen Norse-lands means exploring the culture of those that live there. Later, in the British Isles, it literally feels like a world away. I have rarely ever felt like an explorer the way I have in Expeditions, and that’s an accomplishment I attribute to writing and world building and it’s groundedness above all else.
