About Vikings of Thule
In Vikings of Thule – http://www.vikingsofthule.com/ – you will have to fight bravely and manage your resources carefully in order to climb up the social ladder in the harsh Viking society. Only the most skilled, cunning and respected Vikings will be chosen to join the ancient parliament, the Althingi.

Gogogic paid tribute to the eruption in southern Iceland by including an erupting volcano on the game’s map. The inclusion of this graphic brings real-world news into the exciting online world of Thule. The eruption, which began in the Fimmvörðuhals region of Iceland on the night of Saturday, March 20th, has made headlines and attracted a steady stream of visitors. Players around the world can now share a small part of the excitement brought on by Iceland’s volcanic activity.
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 http://forum.gogogic.com
