A sneak peek…

March 23, 2010

Here is a sneak peek of some great new special items coming to the Vikings of Thule Marketplace soon!



An update for Vikings of Thule today!

March 12, 2010

The last update brought many great changes, leading us to officially launch the game.  We have seen interest and activity in Vikings of Thule rise greatly over the past few weeks, and are very happy with the direction the game is headed.  Today brings another update to the game.  Features will include:

  • The first Special Items arrive in the marketplace!  Each item gives valuable rewards.  The more you collect the more benefits your Viking will see.
  • You are able to set a default option when posting game achievements to your profile.  If you click yes or no, the game will remember that as your default option.  You can change this default at any time.
  • We have taken the limit off of the number of trade slots each person can have.  You will now be able to purchase as many trade slots as you wish.  Please take note, the price per slot has slightly changed.
  • We have also fixed some of the bugs that have appeared since the last updates.  Most of the connection and loading problems have been fixed.  The battlefield has also been cleaned up so that fewer offline players will linger.

All of this is coming today!  If you would like to see what else is planned for the future of the game, or would like to make any suggestions, please visit our official forums at
