Thule is evolving! A major update for Vikings of Thule is released today!

April 29, 2010

We have been hard at work to make this latest update something really special. We are adding many long-awaited features and improvements to make Vikings of Thule the best it has ever been! This latest update will include:

  • Introduction of Witches! Players will now be able to convert freemen into Witches, which produce runes each day.
  • In-Game Messaging System! Yes, you can now send messages to other Vikings. Simply click the avatar, or select a name in the settlement list, and click “Send Message.” The message will appear in that player’s inbox, where they can then reply if they so choose.
  • Changes to Manage tab and Followers.
  • Your followers now require some upkeep. As any leader knows, followers cost money and resources. The price depends on the type of follower.
  • Each Peasant will cost 2 ore per day.
  • Each Huskarl will cost 10 ore per day.
  • Each Jarl will cost 60 resources.
  • Each Witch will cost 5 ore and 10 resources per day.
  • The cost is deducted every day, so be sure to keep a good amount of ore and resources, otherwise your followers will stop producing assets.
  • Each land unit allows players to have 20 followers. If a player has more followers than the land permits, excess followers will be removed in the following order: Freemen, Jarls, Witches, Huskarls, Peasants. These rules will take effect in one week, so you have time to sell any excess Followers.
  • Many new special items are available in the marketplace.
    Bug fixes and Data Script corrections.
    Most of the bugs that have been interrupting the dueling system should have been fixed. Duels should no longer freeze.
    Datascript has been corrected in the special items that were not working. All special items should be working correctly again.

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

Vikings of Thule has been updated, though slow tonight

February 17, 2010

Vikings of Thule’s new update is now running, but due to a hardware problem with the server, the game will be running quite slow until we can get it fixed tomorrow. We thank you for your patience.

The update brings many new improvements, changes, and social interaction. Remember, we will have some more updates and changes soon, but for now, enjoy the game!

Vikings of Thule receives an Update tomorrow!

February 16, 2010

Vikings of Thule will be offline for a few hours early tomorrow while we are updating! As we move closer to the end of the beta era, Vikings of Thule is receiving many exciting new updates to make the playing experience a memorable one for new players and our veteran players, as well.

In this update, you can expect to see a better registration process, a brand new tutorial with gives rewards during and after completion, an improved marketplace with better sorting options, post to profile options to boast about your achievements on Facebook, many profile changes and a new game header with easier options to become a fan or leave feedback.

A major change we have made concerns an issue many players share regarding forfeiting during duels. Those who forfeit will now incur penalties and the player remaining will receive rewards for their valiance. If a player decides to forfeit a battle, a confirmation window will pop up and alert them that they will lose the cost of the battle, their runes, and 50% of the respect points they would have lost during the battle. The player remaining will be refunded their duel costs, have their used runes returned and other small rewards which may not all be in place yet. We hope this helps in keeping fair game play and adds to the enjoyment and challenge in playing.

We plan on releasing another update in the near future where we will have fixed any bugs that we may spot after this update and will include even more features, including the introduction of using your Wights during duels! We are also in the process of creating the official Gogogic forums, which will be linked from the game’s header bar. The forums will be a bit plain at first, but we can make it an exciting location to hold discussions with your help and feedback. Vikings of Thule will have its own forum, as will each of Gogogic’s other titles. In the coming months, we also plan on including messages, an in-game chat system, more assets, new battle cards, mini-games, town management options, quests, missions and the option to form alliances.

Exciting times are happening and we look forward to seeing you all in Thule!
