Viking metal lords Amon Amarth have just dipped their feet into the world of video games once more, with the release of their mobile game Berserker, named after their latest album!
The new game takes on a retro 2D art style, where you play as Thor and are tasked with killing the evil King of England.
The official statement of the game reads:
“Grab your hammer and historically inaccurate horned helmet, it's time to crush your enemies!
You control Thor, the God Of Thunder, in a brand new mobile gaming adventure set in the Amon Amarth game universe. This time he’s heading towards mother Earth to fight the evil King of England!
Thor will slice and dice his way through knights, archers, cavalry and “crucifix-wielding monks” across seven levels in his quest to vanquish the king.
Berserker will feature three tracks from the album, with gamers also tasked with completing challenges for prizes.
From launch until April 30, players will be judged on their skills, with the top 100 receiving prizes, including game merchandise such as a specially designed Amon Amarth t-shirt, a signed mini poster and “other glorious trophies for you to display with pride."
Amon Amarth also released a self-titled game back in 2017, which is also available on both platforms.
Listen to Amon Amarth now.
