Freja and the False Prophecy

The tale of one shield-maiden’s journey. A tale of betrayal, overcoming adversity and self discovery. You’ll be the fallible heroine, Freja, troubled by a brutal past and thrust into the harsh unknown, as you traverse through the Nine Realms of Yggdrasil in search of answers and redemption.

You’ll discover a great betrayal, uncover a prophecy, experience a terrible tragedy and, ultimately, go head to head with the gods themselves.

Their strings tug, our motions pre-orchestrated. Fate or free will? Does it matter? Can you rise and forge your own fate?

As you travel through the nine-realms of Yggdrasil, you will uncover an epic tale. As gamers and fans of rich and engaging stories, we’re placing an emphasis on crafting a tale that you’ll remember long after finishing the game.

Returning from a raid, Freja arrives at her home shore, her ship cast upon the rocks. She discovers all is not as it seems. A great malady has gripped the land and the gods may have a part in it. With the tragedy of lost comrades and a sunken bounty behind her, she sets off to uncover the truth.

Freja will not make it through the journey unscathed. As you uncover the mystery and piece together the prophecy, you’ll progress not only Freja’s character but also unlock awesome and powerful abilities to break the chains that bind you to the gods.

Along the way, you’ll meet a variety of interesting and diverse characters which will either help, hinder or provide some well earned comic relief.

A traveler and wanderer with a large ego and even bigger sword, Stigandr comes from a land that was ravaged by a great famine and hardship many moons ago. Freja encounters him at various points in her adventure and they forge a strong bond of kinship.

A cheeky bard who promises to sing Freja’s saga for a thousand years. Quirky and with a sense of humour, you’ll always be on the lookout for the next opportunity to exchange some friendly banter.

The Gods
We’re keeping them secret for now. They’re not big on photographs. Suffice to say, they’ll have a strong presence in the game.

The worlds you’ll battle through in our saga:

  • Midgard: Home of the Humans. Surrounded by the all encompassing sea serpent, Jörmungandr, Midgard is a land of mountains, valleys, rivers and oceans, a land that Freja calls home.
  • Niflheim: The World of Fog and Mist. Darkest and coldest of the Nine Realms, Niflheim is a barren and icy wasteland.
  • Muspelheim: The Land of Fire is a burning hot place, filled with lava, flames, and soot.
  • Asgard: The home of the Aesir. A divine and orderly realm. This domain of the gods is ruled by Odin and his wife, Frigg. Home to the great halls Valhalla and the meadow of Fólkvangr, where fallen Vikings will go for the afterlife.
  • Jotunheim: Home of the Giants,  the sworn enemies of the Aesir. Jotunheim consists mostly of rocks, wilderness, and dense forests.
  • Vanaheim: Home of the Vanir. The Vanir are masters of sorcery and magic, renowned for their ability to foretell the future.
  • Alfheim: Home of the Light Elves, luminous and mysterious creatures. Some say they are more beautiful than the sun.
  • Svartalfheim: Home of the Dwarves. Master crafters and hoarders of wealth, the dwarves live under the mountains, inhabiting caves and subterranean tunnels.
  • Helheim: Home of the dishonorable dead. A cold and lifeless place ruled by Loki’s fearsome daughter, Hel, and guarded from trespassers by a monstrous hound.
