Top 5 Best Vikings Games for PC
Maybe you are interested in Gaelic and Norse history? The period of the ”Norse-Gaels” would be phenomenal. With today’s technology you could have one map in let’s say Gaelic Ireland and another in Norse Norway. The political intrigue, betrayals, alliances and wars of that era between the Irish and Norse are amazing. You honestly have one of the greatest plethora of downright mysterious, eccentric, interesting and bloody Irish and Norse characters during that time running about, from the famous Irish High King Brian Boru, to his brother Wolf the Quarrelsome, and the Viking Brodir of Man (who literally acted like a Templar), Just great stuff all round. Only problem is the lack of high rise buildings, but Dublin was pretty built up in the Scandinavian style during the time so it’s not like there was nothing. But would be worth it alone for the great history and cast of characters. I saw one of the main writers at Ubisoft likes the idea of Irish war of Independence, but Irish vs British has been overdone in all forms of Media. Irish and Norse has been barely touched on. Celts and Vikings in one game,sign me up lads.

Valhalla Chronicles for PC
Valkyria Chronicles II (subtitled with Gallian Royal Military Academy in the Japanese version) is the sequel to Valkyria Chronicles, made by Sega for the Playstation Portable and released in 2010.
Its story takes place in EC 1937, two years after Valkyria Chronicles. The Principality of Gallia was able to repel a massive invasion by the Imperial Alliance, but at great cost to its infrastructure and military. While the Second Europan War rages on beyond its borders, Gallia struggles to rebuild itself.
The revelation that the ruling house of Gallia was actually a Darcsen bloodline has sent shockwaves throughout the nation. A civil war has erupted as several anti-Darscen nobles unite under the banner of Count Gilbert Gassenarl and form the Gallian Revolutionary Army (colloquially known as “the Rebels”) to purge Darcsen influence from Gallia. As the law of Universal Conscription forbids deployment of the Militia against internal strife, the government of Gallia is forced to deploy cadets from the prestigious Lanseal Royal Military Academy to help quell the Rebel threat.

The game is set in Europa, a fictional region loosely based on Europe during the early years of World War II. Because of its abundance of Ragnite ore, which takes the place of petroleum in the game setting, the neutral nation of Gallia comes under attack from the East Europan Imperial Alliance, which is itself engaged in war with the Atlantic Federation.Players take control of a unit of the Gallian Militia, dedicated to repelling the invasion. The game’s visuals, which use Sega’s CANVAS graphics engine, resemble pencil drawn paintings in motion.
What is it all about? Venture into Viking territory in Valhalla Chronicles, a 3D role-playing game that takes you on a mythological adventure filled with discovery, adventure, and raging wars. As one of four heroes, you must interact with humans and gods in order to complete your mission. On your quest, you can take on the role of the fierce Grim, the catlike Tuva, the young Hymer, or the burly Thorgeir and encounter gods including Thor, Odin, and Loke–a half-god and half-giant.
